For those of you who are as old as me and still in possession of most of your faculties... The Rolling Stones -- who are currently celebrating 50 years of being together -- have yet another documentary coming out. This one is going to be available for purchase next Tuesday. (The other one is going to be on HBO in mid-November.)
Charlie is My Darling was made in 1965 but remained a sort of legend or myth because no one had ever seen it. It is just now seeing the light of day, here in 2012 (!!) and I absolutely can't wait! Here is the scoop:
"ABKCO Films presents a meticulously restored and fully-realized version of this first-ever, legendary, but never released film. Shot during a quick tour of Ireland just weeks after (I Can t Get No) Satisfaction hit # 1 on the charts, The Rolling Stones Charlie is my Darling - Ireland 1965 is an intimate, behind-the-scenes diary of life on the road with the young Stones. It features the first professionally filmed concert performances of the band and documents the early frenzy of their fans and the riots the band's appearances inspired. The band is shown traveling through the Irish countryside by train; dashing from cabs to cramped, basement dressing rooms through screaming hordes of fans. Motel rooms host impromptu songwriting sessions and familiar classics are heard in their infancy as riff and lyric are united. Charlie is my Darling is the invaluable frame that captures the spark about to combust into The Greatest Rock and Roll Band in the World.
"The Rolling Stones Charlie is my Darling - Ireland 1965 DVD incorporates the new 2012 version of the film as well as the director's cut and producer's cut, plus significant unseen additional performance and other footage shot in Dublin and Belfast in September of 1965."
