Product Information

Ireland 1965.

Shot on a quick weekend tour of Ireland just weeks after “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” hit # 1 on the charts and became the international anthem for an entire generation.

Charlie is my Darling is an intimate, behind-the-scenes diary of life on the road with the young Rolling Stones featuring the first professionally filmed concert performances of the band’s long and storied touring career, documenting the early frenzy of their fans and the riots their live performances incited.

Charlie is my Darling showcases dramatic concert footage – including electrifying performances of “The Last Time,” “Time Is On My Side” and the first ever concert performance of the Stones counterculture classic, “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.”

Candid, off-the-cuff interviews are juxtaposed with revealing, comical scenes of the band goofing around with each other. It’s also an insider’s glimpse into the band’s developing musical style by blending blues, R&B and rock-n-roll riffs, and the film captures the spark about to combust into The World's Greatest Rock and Roll Band.

The 1965 version of Charlie is my Darling was produced by Stones’ manager/producer Andrew Loog Oldham who enlisted director Peter Whitehead to travel with the group and film them as “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” rocketed the band to the pinnacle of the U.S. and U.K. charts.

The GRAMMY winning team of producer Robin Klein and director Mick Gochanaur developed the new 65 minute version after researching and locating additional film footage shot by Whitehead and uncovering a source of first generation audio recordings of the band’s concert performances.

Painstaking work was done on restoring the footage to come up with the new film that offers a coherent narrative and gives the viewer unprecedented access to the Rolling Stones’ original line-up – Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Brian Jones and Bill Wyman –on stage live and captured, literally, in trains, planes and automobiles as well as backstage and in smoky hotel rooms where they candidly discuss their future.

Never-beforeseen footage of the band’s early songwriting process is also included as motel rooms host impromptu songwriting sessions and familiar classics are heard in their infancy as riff and lyric are united.
