"Charlie is my Darling, Ireland 1965 by Peter Whitehead (DVD)



A beautiful series of moments when the Rolling Stones were kickin' and really happening. Shot in beautiful black n' white, Brian Jones still comes off as a technicolor force in the gray world of The Stones.  One could see that this was not going to last forever.  And I think even then, Jones knew the score.

Nevertheless classic stage performances, and even a songwriting session between Mick and Keith is a fantastic thing to see and hear.  So yeah, moments that are frozen in time, but still gives one a kick in the gut and head.  Also a nice touch to have the Andrew Loog Oldham Orchestra as part of the soundtrack.  I love that!
