Here is a chance to own a piece of history with this new documentary capturing The Rolling Stones before they were the legends.
In September of 1965, The Rolling Stones did a quick two-city tour of Ireland on the heels of the success of their latest single, “Satisfaction.” Inspired by the Beatles Hard Days Night, released the previous year, manager Andrew Loog Oldham hired director Peter Whitehead to film some footage while Glyn Johns recorded the sound. The footage was collected into a 50-minute documentary called Charlie Is My Darling that was shopped the following year but for whatever reason, was never officially released or aired. The reels sat in film cans, largely untouched, for more than 40 years until Because Entertainment and ABKCO Films remastered them. – Frank Pasquine, Paste Magazine
