The kings of early ’70s hedonism had a court order produced declaring this documentary could not be shown without the presence of it’s director, Robert Franks. That did not stop the bootleg of the film from being widely dispersed on the black market. This is a truly naked, candid, often disturbing look at a band on tour wrapped up in drama and addiction. It’s also fascinating. The film takes up where Albert Maysles documentary Gimme Shelter
left off post Altamont/post sixties – during the Stones 1972 tour.
The unreleased tracks below are off an old boot I came across entitled “The Cocksucker Blues EP.” Even with the Internet I have never been able to locate much further information than that. Stones fan should check this out. Look for further unreleased Stones treats on The Drunkard in the coming months before the close of the year.
Elsewhere: Please take some time to read one of my all time favorite fan pieces on The Rolling Stones entitled “Death of a Junky: The Rolling Stones” by Derek Phillips.
