The Rolling Stones 'Charlie Is My Darling' Documentary To Get Official Release After 40 Years
The 1965 The Rolling Stones documentary "Charlie Is My Darling" is set to be officially released for the first time. The 50-minute film was shot in September 1965 when the Stones did a two-date tour of Ireland after "Satisfaction" hit the charts. Although bootleg copies have been available, the film was never officially released. However, as part of the band's 50th anniversary celebrations, a new, restored version of the film will premier at the New York Film Festival on September 29, Billboard reports. It features the earliest known professionally recorded concert footage of the band, including the tracks "Satisfaction", "Time Is On My Side" and "The Last Time", as well as documentary footage of the band backstage, writing new tracks and doing impressions of The Beatles and Elvis Presley. Showing the hysteria surrounding the band's early years, one track "I'm Alright", comes to an abrupt end as crowds swarm the stage and the band have to be rushed offstage by police. "We did some pretty serious science on this," director Mick Gochanour told Billboard about the restoration process. "It took eight months to synch up the [soundtrack] with the live performances... We realised during the middle that we had six complete performances" from the two different cities, recorded on long-obsolete three-track tape. He added: "There were three tracks: the audience, Mick, and the band. The audience recording was slightly out-of-synch with the band, and when we aligned them, it gave unbelievable definition to the bass and drums." The world premiere of "Charlie Is My Darling - Ireland 1965" will be released commercially on November 6. It will follow the release of another Rolling Stones documentary, "Crossfire Hurricane", which is directed by Brett Morgen and follows the band from their early road trips and gigs in the 1960s right up to present day. Earlier this month, The Rolling Stones announced that they will be releasing a new greatest hits compilation, titled "GRRR!", in November, which will feature two new tracks. Thanks for the report to NME.com.
