Okay, so the Rolling Stones ended up choosing a rock star mayor over a verklempt Brooklyn Borough president. But even if you can't make it to their highly anticipated Newark shows, you can still catch plenty of Stones goodies at MoMA—they'll be hosting a Rolling Stones film retrospective from November 15th to December 2nd. And that includes the long lost documentary The Rolling Stones Charlie Is My Darling - Ireland 1965. Below, check out an amazing quality clip from the film, in which the Stones goof around playing the Beatles' "I've Just Seen A Face" and "Eight Days A Week."
The film, made by filmmaker Peter Whitehead, is making its debut after an absence of more than 45 years. It was shot during the band's two-day tour of Ireland on September 3rd and 4th, 1965. Among other things, it includes an intimate conversation with Brian Jones about his future after the band ("something artistically and far more practical things") and his views on marriage: "The whole prospect of marriage rather frightens me... its like signing a contract...you are signing a part of you away, but in marriage you are signing your life away."
There are also live performances of "Time Is on My Side," "Everybody Needs Somebody to Love" and "Satisfaction." "They sound like the Pistols in '77," director Mick Gochanour told Rolling Stone. The magazine adds that there is also "a mesmerizing scene" of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards composing the Flowers classic "Sittin' on a Fence." MoMA will have screenings of the film on December 1st and 2nd.
