This documentary was originally filmed in 1965 as The Rolling Stones were doing a two show stop in Ireland. Not only do we get footage from the two shows but we also get interviews with the band, their fans as well as a lot of footage of them playing around in their dressing room.
Obviously if you're a fan of the Stones then this here is going to be a must see for a number of reasons. One is that this contains the concert footage of the two shows and includes songs like The Last Time, Time Is on My Side and Satisfaction, which was just being released as a single at the time. Another reason is getting to see the original five members talk about the band as well as what they hope to do in the future. Of course, hearing Brian Jones talk about the future certainly has a different meaning when viewed today. Another reason is the fact that the first concert got canceled when the crowd became out of control and got on the stage. Seeing this and later GIMME SHELTER just makes you realize that a lot of strange things has happened to this band.
At just 63-minutes the movie goes by very quickly but it's well-made and contains some wonderful footage of the band just before they become superstars.
