'Charlie Is My Darling' to gain official release

The Rolling Stones are set to give early tour documentary 'Charlie Is My Darling' an official release.

The Rolling Stones have always been a uniquely visual experience. The band's career has been charted in numerous documentaries, some of which have never gained an official release.

Shot in 1965, 'Charlie Is My Darling' finds the band adjusting to their enormous fame. Playing a two date tour of Ireland, it features The Rolling Stones relaxing on the road immediately after the release of 'Satisfaction'.

Previously only available on poor quality bootlegs, The Rolling Stones are set to give the film an airing in time for their 50th anniversary.

News broke via Billboard, who explain that the new version contains 60 percent new footage and six complete songs - including some of the earliest available professional footage of the legendary band.

'Charlie Is My Darling' receives its première during the New York Film Festival on September 29th, before hitting retail on November 6th. The director’s cut, the producer’s cut and this new version are set to be pressed together as a Super Deluxe Box Set on DVD and Blu-Ray.

Here's a recent clip of the Rolling Stones musing on their origins.
