Andrew Loog Oldham will be presenting something very special indeed...
Legendary ROLLING STONES svengali
ANDREW LOOG OLDHAM is to make a
clutch of rare appearances in the UK later this month,
presenting the first official screenings of a STONES
concert film from the mid-1960s.
Oldham will travel from his home
in Bogota, Colombia to present ‘Charlie Is My
Darling’ in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Belfast.
The 50-minute film captures the band over three
days in September 1965 playing shows in
Belfast and Dublin.
A behind the scenes documentary filmed entirely on
hand-held camera, it also includes early performances
of classics such as ‘Get Off Of My
‘(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction’.
The screenings come as part of the Triptych
Festival in Scotland and the
Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival in
Belfast. They will be at Glasgow GFT
(April 28), Edinburgh Filmhouse
(April 29), Aberdeen (May 1) and
Belfast Northern Whig (May 3).
To coincide with Loog Oldham’s
appearance in the UK, Decca Records
will re-release The Andrew Oldham
Orchestra album, ‘The Rolling Stones
Songbook’, on May 10. The LP contains
instrumental versions of many Stones
classics , including ‘The Last Time’, famously
sampled by The Verve
on ‘Bitter Sweet Symphony’ in 1997.
