The film captures the band during a quick two-city tour of Ireland in 1965 following on the success of their newest single, “Satisfaction.” Band manager Andrew Loog Oldham hired director Peter Whitehead to film some footage and Glyn Johns to record the shows. The footage was shopped the following year but never officially released or aired.
“Charlie is My Darling” will be released on Blu-ray Nov. 6.
