While the film has been available in various bootleg forms, the majority of the new cut consists of never-before-seen footage, and Spinner is thrilled to premiere the performance clip of "I'm Alright."
"Here were Mick and Keith at 22 and 21 years old, respectively, in front of a live, wildly enthusiastic audience. The whole reason the band became who they are was made crystal clear right then," Mick Gochanour and Robin Klein, the director and producer, tell Spinner. "It was a revelation; we had no idea how raw and visceral they were and, at the same time, how incredibly tight and controlled. There was a punk attitude -- a direct communication and, at one moment it spins out of control, threatening to overtake them.
"During 'I'm Alright,' Mick is whipping the kids into a frenzy, prodding and teasing them. At first, one fan breaks onto the stage, followed by another and another, until complete pandemonium ensues and the band become the target. Guitars fly, hair is grabbed and microphones screech into feedback. It's like a slow-motion car wreck and you have know no idea how it will end."
Check out the performance below and pick up "Charlie Is My Darling -- Ireland 1965" on DVD, Blu-Ray or in the Super Deluxe Box Set edition on Nov. 6.
