I also have a question for Mr. Schneider, and thanks so much for your contributions here.They are fantastic.
For many years now I have always wondered about a segment in the Gimme Shelter film. Mr. Schneider, you were in the room in this scene so maybe you can help.
The scene is where Mel Beli is talking to someone on the phone in San Fransisco. He tells the person on the phone that you and others are in the room( the camera goes on you ) and trying to get the concert organized, but Mel hasn't met Mr. Jagger yet.
The man on the phone tells Mr. Beli that this thing is one big pain in the ass, and Beli responds by saying he is not a proctologist.
My question is this, why is the voice on the phone different on the later ABKCO reissue of the film than the original film? Was it a legal issue? And which voice is the real voice, the original film or the ABKCO re issue?
Thanks for the answer if you have one. I asked Albert Maysles this question last year and he had no idea two different voices were used.But you were in the room ,its on film, so I'm hoping you can tell me.
