In part 3 of Google Play's interview series with The Rolling Stones, both Mick and Keith recall the ushers at this gig from the L.A. Forum in 1975 wearing togas, which is a fitting image given the Caligula-like decadence the band became known for during this period. The grooves, sleazy enough to begin with, become even seedier in this setting, and you can hear the band indulging themselves throughout -- "You Can't Always Get What You Want" lasts for more than 15 minutes.

But the band has the swagger to pull it off, and Keith is clearly enjoying trading licks with Ronnie Wood, who joined the Stones as Mick Taylor's replacement on this tour. Plus, ace sidemen such as percussionist Ollie Brown, and saxophonist Trevor Lawrence, and the inimitable Billy Preston help hold everything together -- Preston even gets the spotlight for two tunes in the middle of the set.

You can grab the title track from the album they were supporting, It's Only Rock 'n Roll, absolutely free, and purchase the complete set for just $4.99.
