Wednesday October 13th
The Rolling Stones 1964-1975
The Brian Jones and Mick Taylor Years
Approx. 100 min.

No fan of THE ROLLING STONES will want to miss this exciting evening of rare early performances, including their first appearances on television in the USA & Europe, promo films, concerts & newsreels. Film and music archivist BILL SHELLEY will personally present unseen-for-years footage of the Stones performing such classics as “Under My Thumb,” “Time Is on My Side,” “Honky Tonk Woman,” and more!  1964-75 was undoubtedly one of The Stones’ peak artistic periods; the band was as wildly popular and influential as The Beatles. BRIAN JONES, the original leader & rhythm guitarist, was always pushing the group to experiment.  His bluesy, instrumental style sparked the writing skills of MICK JAGGER and KEITH RICHARD to help create such classic songs as “Satisfaction,” “Play With Fire,” “Paint It Black,” “Lady Jane,” and “Get Off of My Cloud,” all of which are included in this program. After Jones’ death in 1969, MICK TAYLOR joined the band and helped create such celebrated albums as It’s Only Rock and Roll, Sticky Fingers and the legendary Exile on Main Street. Recently, Taylor re-joined with the Stones to re-master Main Street and complete 10 previously unfinished tracks from the period.

Thursday November 18th
Pink Floyd (1966-1980)
Approx. 90 min.

From their early work with the legendary but doomed Syd Barrett to later iconic albums like Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall, Pink Floyd have created a body of work that ranks among the greats of rock and roll. Pink Floyd exploded on Swinging London’s music scene during the mid 1960s with their strange, trippy, spaced out, psychedelic sound. After hit songs like See Emily Play and Arnold Lane, the group’s genius songwriter/singer/bass player Syd Barrett had a mental breakdown and could no longer perform. Replaced by David Gilmour, it took time for the band to find a new voice, but when they did the result was landmark works like Dark Side of the Moon, Animals, Wish You Were Here, and The Wall. Shelley Archives has looked deep into their vault and discovered extraordinary rare color and black & white footage of Pink Floyd from their earliest days playing on television, concerts, promotional films, newsreels, out takes, home movies and more! This evening of amazing performances will present a full retrospective of Pink Floyd’s entire career from the 1960s to their groundbreaking concerts from all around the world during the 1970s. No fan of this brilliant band will want to miss this evening of classic footage of Pink Floyd!
