In 1971, the Rolling Stones took the stage at London’s famed Marquee Club, delivering an intimate performance on the very stage the legendary group began its career nearly a decade earlier. Footage from this epic night reportedly languished in an attic for nearly two decades, but has recently been restored and the audio re-mastered. The end product, THE ROLLING STONES FROM THE VAULT – THE MARQUEE – LIVE IN 1971, is a riveting look back at the band in its prime.
This remarkable performance was originally filmed for U.S. television in 1971, shortly after The Rolling Stones had completed their 1971 Farewell Tour of the U.K., and a month before the release of the album Sticky Fingers. The gig marked the first time tracks “Brown Sugar,” “Dead Flowers,” “Bitch” and the rarely performed “I Got The Blues” were showcased live. Plus, the legendary band performed hits from its then-most recent release, Let It Bleed, including “Live With Me,” “Midnight Rambler,” and more. The group line-up at this time was Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Mick Taylor and Bill Wyman.
