I found this site on the Internet. Carla Hay is a huge Stones' fan who has a lot of information regarding Stones releases. Here's what she wrote about the new Deluxe Version of Charlie Is My Darling on her site, and what it will include.

Wow - the DVD will obviously duplicate the Blu-Ray film release. But what could be on the double CDs. They wouldn't just put the soundtracks with talking on there. Very intriguing.

It's been ages since I last watched my bootleg copy, but I hardly remember any actual Stones' music featured on the film ... Let alone to fill "2 CDs and a vinyl LP" for the deluxe package. Wonder what they will come up with, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

'Charlie Is My Darling' is an insightful look at the Rolling Stones in 1965

If you want an engaging look at the Rolling Stones in their youthful prime, decades before they became legends playing massive venues, then look no further than "Charlie Is My Darling - Ireland 1965," which has been lovingly restored for an official release. On September 14, 2012, the New York Film Festival and ABKCO presented an advance screening of the film to journalists in New York City. I was one of the lucky people in attendance, and I'm happy to say that the visual and sound qualities for this movie are top-notch. It was a real treat to see this film in a theater instead of on a TV screen. (The media screening took place at the Walter Reade Theatre, where the movie's other New York Film Festival screenings will be held.)

As previously reported, "Charlie Is My Darling - Ireland 1965" will have its world premiere at the New York Film Festival on September 29, 2012, at 7 p.m Eastern Time. An encore screening will take place on October 3, 2012, at 8:30 p.m. Eastern Time. Tickets went on sale on September 9, 2012.

It has not been announced if the Rolling Stones will attend the premiere.

The movie's TV premiere will be on a network, date and time to be announced, but it should be in the autumn of 2012.

On November 6, 2012, ABKCO will release the movie in these three formats:

DVD
Blu-ray
Super deluxe box set that will include a DVD, Blu-ray, 2 CDs and a vinyl LP.

ABKCO has announced that the director's cut of the movie, the producer's cut of the movie and the 2012 version of the movie will be available in all of these formats.

Peter Whitehead directed, photographed and edited the 1965 version of the movie, while Andrew Loog Oldham (the Rolling Stones' manager at the time) was also a producer of the film.

The 2012 restored version of the movie was directed by Mick Gochanour and produced by Robin Klein.

As the movie's title indicates, the documentary (filmed entirely in black and white) captures the Rolling Stones on tour in Ireland in 1965, just weeks after "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" hit No. 1 and became an iconic anthem. "Charlie Is My Darling Ireland 1965" holds the distinction of having the first filmed performance of the Rolling Stones doing "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" in concert.

The film chronicles the tour in all of its chaotic, frenzied glory, including the hysterical reactions from fans that included audience members storming the stage until a concert had to be shut down by police, as well as screaming teenage girls chasing after the Stones at a train station and the band jumping across the train tracks in order to get away.

In one of the early scenes, guitarist Keith Richards is standing calmly somewhere when all of a sudden a female fan standing near him plucks out a hair out of his head. He exclaims, "Ow!" in a somewhat shocked and annoyed manner before walking away.

In another scene later in the movie, the Stones are eating at a restaurant, while curious onlookers peer through a window at the restaurant, as if they're looking at exotic animals in a zoo.

At the beginning of the movie, there's a clever bit of editing, as an interviewer asks Rolling Stones fans outside a concert venue which band member is their favorite. As various fans give different answers, the band member who is named is then shown talking about how the fame has affected them.

Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts talked about having an "inferiority complex" as a drummer in a rock band.

Rolling Stones guitarist Brian Jones commented, "The future as a Rolling Stone is very uncertain. My ultimate aim in life was never to be a pop star. I enjoy it ... but I'm not really satisfied about it artistically or personally."

Rolling Stones bass player Wyman said: "I always wanted to be a musician. I always wanted to be in a band. It was so impossible and so unlikely that I dismissed it ... I always wanted to be, and then I was."

Rolling Stones lead singer Mick Jagger stated, "You're not the same person on stage that you are the rest of the time ... You're very, very egotistical. I mean, you're acting. You're doing an act. It's not really you."

Rolling Stones lead singer Mick Jagger stated, "You're not the same person on stage that you are the rest of the time ... You're very, very egotistical. I mean, you're acting. You're doing an act. It's not really you."

Jagger was then asked, "What do you set out to do in your act?"

He replied, "Entertain people."

Later in the movie, in another interview, Jagger is asked how egotistical he is off stage compared to how egotistical he is on stage. He grinned and said, "About half as egotistical."

However much "acting" Jagger did on screen in this movie, he did provide some visionary insight into the seismic shift in society coming from young people at the time: "For the last two or three years, young people have been (and this especially applies to America), instead of carrying on the way their parents told them to, they started this thing where they're anti-war, and love everybody, and their sexual lives have become freer. It's a different moral value, because they know they're going to get all the things that they were thought were impossible 50 years ago."

Keep in mind that Jagger made these comments two years before the "flower power" movement culminated in the Summer of Love in 1967.

In another scene that says volumes, when audience members ran up on stage during one of the Stones concerts, Jagger, Richards and Jones left the stage to go to a safer place as more and more audience members swarmed the stage. But even as the concert was falling apart around them, Wyman and Watts kept stoically playing, until they could play no more and were rushed off stage by security personnel.

Wyman commented on the crowd-control problems at Rolling Stones concerts, "The officials keep pushing back all the time, and the kids ... are trying to see."

Jagger added, "I wouldn't say that the Beatles are the symbol of authority, or any authority, but when the Beatles went to Germany, the same thing happened."

After that frenzied melee, there's a somber moment when Wyman is told that one of the female fans at the curtailed concert ended up hospitalized with a fracture, and he has an expression of helpless concern on his face.

But lest anyone forget that these are the Rolling Stones in 1965 (who were considered the ultimate rebel band at the time), they are seen smoking on a train as the camera cuts to a sign on the train that says "No Smoking."

Oldham is a constant presence on screen, as he accompanied the band on that tour, but he is barely shown saying anything in the movie. However, Oldham is often seen joining in during the off-stage jam sessions shown in the movie. This is where we see the Stones at their most relaxed and brotherly. During these jam sessions (in what look like dressing rooms or hotel rooms), the Stones perform mostly cover songs, such as "Eight Days a Week," "Where Will the Dimple Be," "Salty Dog" and "Blueberry Hill."

The concert scenes are simply electrifying. Most people seeing this movie weren't there to experience the Rolling Stones on tour in Ireland in 1965, but "Charlie Is My Darling" really is the next best thing to being there.

Thanks for the info, Mary - great stuff.

Pleasantly surprised to see theyre actually releasing previously unheard (and even uncirculated) live music from these shows, as the original movie featured no concert music at all.

And even more significantly, the Dublin show was the first time that 'Satisfaction' was performed in concert (they'd done it on a TV show or two previously but this was the first 'tour' where it was performed).

Just love the look of the Irish band that is interviewed in Charlie Is My Darling called The Creatures. They seem like Ireland's version of The Pretty Things but with even longer hair.

The guy pictured reminds me of one of the beatnik vultures from The Jungle Book. Has anyone here ever heard their music or knows what became of them?

Thats freakishly long hair for 1965!

And in Ireland too - I'd bet he got beaten senseless on a weekly basis!

Never heard of them, but here's a couple of extra little bits. Seems they lasted until 1967 :

CD2 looks very much like an expanded Got Live If You Want It EP to me - which would be great, to say the least. While some of the Got Live-outtakes are already available on boots for some years (Down The Road Apiece, Time Is On My Side, Everybody Needs Somebody To Love - full version), it's great to finally get them in "official" quality, while one of the true finds here is obviously "Little Red Rooster" - most probably the version that Bill Wyman chose for the abandoned "Black Box" project back in the mid-seventies.

So CD2 is most probably from the March 1965 UK tour recordings which generated the Got Live-EP, while the live recordings on CD1 are most likely from Ireland 1965 as recorded for or in connection with the movie.

All in all: I'm overwhelmed. A simply breathtaking prospect!

I was thinking nearly the same. CD2 must be the extended GLIYWI EP - which really deserve an official release. But when it comes to disc 1, it's disappointing that most tracks are studio versions - and probably even the common official studio versions. Apart from the "Everybody" intro, there's only 4 live tracks on disc 1

It's still seems to be a great watch/listen. Hope it won't be too expensive, but I reckon it will be

Brilliant. Great stuff Gazz. Bet they were pretty good. Great to see an Irish showbands site. There's plenty of great Irish musicians who first trod the boards doing the showband circuit - the great Rory Gallagher being just one. I'm sure Eric Bell and Gary Moore were others.

Yeah, but most showbands were (and still are) horrifically awful. Back then, it really was the only way for most Irish musicians to make a living. Even the best musicians had to pander to some horrific lengths to get work!
