Illuminating and entertaining

An illuminating and entertaining music documentary.

Covers the Rolling Stones' 1965 tour of Ireland. Features concert footage, backstage and hotel scenes and interviews with the band. At the time the Stones were still more a blues/R&B band, rather than the rock superstars they would later become. All other Stones films I have seen were in the rock days, and there's a difference.

Here the Stones, though obviously big in the music world - just see the fans adoration, especially from the young girls - seem to still have a degree of innocence and are almost shocked at how popular they are. They still don't really think their fame and popularity are permanent. There's almost a lack of self-confidence on their part, especially from Charlie Watts.

Also interesting to see that some of the standout Stones features are already there. Most particularly, Jagger's stage performance is all movement, swagger and bravado - that came early. Plus you see the natural musical ability of Keith Richard(s) and the shyness of Charlie Watts.

The interviews, particularly with Jagger, are quite illuminating. You can see they are not addle-brained louts, but young men who think about their art, what has come before and where it is going.

A relatively unique Stones experience.

Mick, Keith, and the gang go Hibernian

"The Rolling Stones: Charlie Is My Darling - Ireland 1965" features footage of the Stones' tour of the Emerald Isle. There's footage of the guys sitting around talking to each other, but it goes without saying that the best part is the music. One thing that I noticed was the moderate security. The Stones perform in a music hall and there are almost no cops. It would be hard to imagine any world-famous group doing that nowadays. Another marker of the past is that Mick's face looks more natural (that is, before he had it done, giving him a gaunt look).

One thing that I wondered while watching "Charlie Is My Darling" is how many Ireland and Northern Ireland residents had the opportunity to see the Rolling Stones. The group only performed in Dublin and Belfast during their second Irish tour in 1965, so did people from Limerick, Derry, etc, have the chance to travel to Dublin and Belfast? Whatever the case, this is a very fun documentary. The Stones will live forever!
