The Rolling Stones "Satisfaction" Live 1965 (Reelin' In The Years Archives)


This clip is from one of the earliest known filmed live concert performances of the Stones. This is unique from the standpoint that there aren't the typical throngs of screaming girls in the audience and so you can actually hear what they're playing. Reelin' In The Years has over 25 hours of Stones footage dating back to the earliest known footage in 1964 through the mid-2000s. We were proud to be the main licensor (over 18 minutes) of footage for the recent Rolling Stones Crossfire Hurricane documentary. Reelin' In The Years Productions houses the world's largest library of music footage, containing over 20,000 hours of material covering nearly every genre from the last 60 years. We have live concerts, TV appearances, interviews, in-studio segments, b-roll and more. In addition to music we have thousands of hours of interviews with the most recognizable celebrities, comedians, politicians, athletes, artists and authors of the 20th Century. If you need footage for your film, documentary, TV show, commercial, museum exhibit or presentation, we are your one-stop shop.

Incredible - 50+ years on the big scene !

looks like mick jagger finally found a microphone big enough for his mouth

1:36 - 1:43 the cameraman got excited

in 1965 an audience was expected to sit quietly in their seats and perhaps tap their toes to the rythym. you can see some of the girls in the audience are bouncing in their seats! a couple of years later and concerts were totally different with people standing and dancing and screaming their heads off! It was a different era - and the Stones helped changed it.

Keith Richards looks like George Harrison

Lucky those in the audience of the sixties. They had the artists and the music to listen to .
Tom Bell
The only drawback to being 15 years old in 65 means I'm getting old but boy what a lifetime of good music to grow up with.
Sandra Leiviska
I am sure Mick has gotten "Plenty of Satisfaction" over the past 50 years! LOL
Jimmy Tee Rex
Brian Jones's contribution to this band has been underrated.
Christopher Franklin
The first time I saw the Stones was in concert in Sacramento, California in December 1965. They had just started a song when Richards' guitar shorted out on the mic stand. He started to slump to the ground. He was out front a bit and none of the other band members saw what had happened. They kept playing for a few more seconds before they realized he was down on the ground and not playing. The curtain was immediately closed and an announcement was made that the concert was over. I remember the electrical flash being quite large. At the time I thought he might have been killed. However, a newspaper article the next day explained everything. To make a point about how things change, I was in row seven from the stage and had to pay all of $4.75 for that prime seat.

Mick Jagger is the best ever rock band front man

C Mooney
Bands had no monitors back then. They couldn't hear what the others were playing
Thomas De Lello
Brian Jones looks like Ronald McDonald in this video.
Seth Tyrssen
Pretty terrible sound balance, but great memories. RIP Brian.
Natasha Wood
In my opinion one of the best songs written in that decade :-)
Cindy McB
Uhh... please forgive my crude comment, but good God... is that a banana in his pocket, or is he just excited to be on stage??!  Wow... no wonder he's now 72 with another new kid and a wife DECADES younger than him.  Surprised I never noticed it before, considering that in 1965 I was 15, and have considered them the ALL-TIME BEST ROCK & ROLL BAND EVER for my entire life, including now...
Margaret Tudor
It's funny how most of the crowd seems to just be listening politely. In the States they'd be screaming their lungs off!

Brian Jones create the rollin' stones

I CAN'T GET NO SATISFACTION, 1965 I WAS 11 YEARS OLD TODAY I'M 65 AND FEELING LIKE A 35 YEAR OLD. I STILL RUN -- I DO LANDSCAPING- SMOKE CIGARS AND I STILL HAVE A COLD BEER--OR A GLASS OF RED WINE..A CIGAR WITH A COLD BEER--RED WINE IS MY SECRET OF NOT GETTING OLD...IF YOU THINK OLD ?? YOU WILL GET OLD, THINK YOUNG---DO NOT CELEBRATE BIRTHDAYS IT REMINDS YOU OF GETTING OLD.. I CAN'T GET NO SATISFACTION....WORK HARD---RELAX HARD..

brian is so cool
Silver Maple Leaf
They played my home town in 1963 and came round to the local pub during the interval. No-one knew who they were back then, but they couldn't do that these days! Still the greatest rock and roll band in the world.
Van Vallenato
Ronald McDonald playing guitars jajaja

Agreed this is historical footage. It took the Stones many years to perform "Satisfaction" correctly on stage. Yes, the technology was lacking in '64 but this vid has a fairly accurate soundtrack. Keef's fuzz guitar sounds whimpy as opposed to the driving riff the track is built on. Jagger's vocal delivery is flat and is in desperate need of some reverb. Brian sounds great as usual although he went electric for this performance while he plays acoustic on the single. Many people might not know that since Oldham loved to bury much of his work in the mix. How many fans know that Ian Stewart played piano on the single release? Can you hear it?
IeuanTime
Mick's microphone sounds like the Teletubbies speaker.
ElectricCult
Love the stones. Pure parasitic tho when you brand your company all over the artist.
StationOfdreams
I just love watching the early Stones footage.  So much energy. Massive.
Zlatko Perinić
When I'm drivin' in my car, and the man come on the radio. He's tellin' me more and more about some useless information. Supposed to fire my imagination. I can't get no. Oh, no, no, no. Hey, hey, hey. That's what I say. I can't get no satisfaction, I can't get no satisfaction. 'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try. I can't get no, I can't get no. When I'm watchin' my TV and a man comes on and tell me. How white my shirts can be. But, he can't be a man 'cause he doesn't smoke. The same cigarettes as me. I can't get no. Oh, no, no, no. Hey, hey, hey. That's what I say. I can't get no satisfaction, I can't get no satisfaction. 'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try. I can't get no, I can't get no. When I'm ridin' round the world, and I'm doin' this and I'm signin' that. And I'm tryin' to make some girl, who tells me. Baby, better come back maybe next week. 'Cause you see I'm on a losing streak. I can't get no. Oh, no, no, no. Hey, hey, hey. That's what I say. I can't get no, I can't get no. I can't get no satisfaction, no satisfaction. No satisfaction, no satisfaction.
James Jones
Best musician on the stage is Brian Jones.
Machine Gun Nest

Kev Rob
My favourite version with Brian Jones blues influence unmistakeable and the big question who really wrote the Riff Jones or Richards...
Jeff C

I remember as an almost teenager in mid 60's North London, wishing I had 5 pounds to see the 'Mick and the Stones' at the Regal Theatre :)

The whole time I'm just watching that stray piece on the bass drum move around. 
Nikolai Canov
Is Brian the only one who can play in this garage band???
TokyoNightmare
The drums just sound too fat and dirty, but I can't help but say the quality makes it sound awfully satisfying.
Alejandro magno
geniales desde chavos je je je unicos
Robbie Clark
Mick sounds like a drill sergeant yelling over a loudspeaker with that mic
George Johnson

Great song satisfaction from the best band ever keep rocking us forever mick and the boys
Doctor Garbonzo
Happy 50th Birthday Satisfaction! Looks like the guys that are currently changing the tires on my car. But that's the point. Unfortunately, We live in a external world! I remember the days when having actual talent was more important than looks. Look at this weeks top 10 hits. Selena Gomez, Bieber, Demi Lavato,Lil Wayne, Taylor Swift Etc, they couldn't shine the stones shoes. Today's youth should hang their heads in shame......
B00B SpRaY
I love the fans reaction when the song starts
TheBigHase
Nice. Those were the days when Keith thought he was George but later realised oh wait a sec that's the other band lol ;-)
PaulLonden
This is indeed  very unusual footage ,One would almost think this was a bit scary for the band ,to play for this almost sedated crowd ; Jagger being used to whip the crowd into a frenzy with a few handclaps. It's obvious by late '65 , concert promotors got hip to possible over excited crowds ,and made sure they had enough stewarts in attendance to quell any emerging unrest ; if only for the large insurance costs Stones concerts began to attract. Wonder in which country this was, probably somewhere in Scandinavie....
Akejandro jimenez
thats why a say

Bestiario Musical ZH
Sorry to admi it, but the Stones were so mediocre as musicians... Maybe that's why they lasted so long, because they didn't have enough quality to make solo careers and have to depend on their name... Nothing to do with Zeppelin, Beatles or Floyd... What a drag it is getting old...

Love Brian♥♥
margus kiis
Mick is very good, Keith is pretty good, Brian`s perfoming more like some decorative element (his guitar playing is primitive like hell), Bill and Charlie look like being totally tired and uninspired.

Funny, all these people sitting around there, clapping their hands, afraid to dance.
dorzsboss
Sorry to say but it is quite crappy performance. Mostly due to the tech. Sounding quite awful. Especially comparing to other Stones live performance visible here.
luxx_interior
Horrible microphone. Frequencies are extremely harsh.
Marta Noguerol
i'd totally shag mick even if he's older than my grandfather now
Michael Mika
Bring back the good ol' days. Satisfaction....
Vanina Meza
Los amo!!
Pierre Corriveau
I feel that they lost part of the crowd with that new song. It was probably too different from what they were used to hear at that time.

Mick is good
