By the mid sixties, The Rolling Stones had established themselves as one of the most successful rock bands in the world. After bursting on the scene in 1963 with their dynamic version of Chuck Berry's Come On, there followed a stream of classic hit singles, including Not Fade Away, The Last Time and of course the timeless (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction). In 1966, it was decided to gather these and eleven other hit singles on one compilation album. That album is regarded of a classic of its kind; its status has been enhanced by its rarity value. The album was called Big Hits (High Tide And Green Grass). This unique DVD tells the story behind a landmark album that reached #4 in the UK charts and #3 in the US. It features all new interviews with those closest to the group, including actress and singer Marianne Faithful and Keith Altham, noted journalist and PR assistant to Mick Jagger. We also hear from Anita Pallenberg, the actress, model and fashion designer with famous romantic links to the band. Together, Marianne, Keith and Anita provide personal memories form a fascinating backdrop to the story of the album. And then there are the songs. By combining exciting archive footage of the band in action with critical analysis by a team of respected music critics, the program is a superb re-appraisal of an album that is still regarded as one of the Stones finest.
