Crossfire Hurricane movie sceneThe 2012 music-filled documentary Crossfire Hurricane takes an in-depth look at The Rolling Stones’ journey from blues-obsessed teenagers in the early 60’s to rock royalty, from the Marquee Club to Hyde Park, from Altamont to Exile, from club gigs to stadium extravaganzas.

As befits the first rock band to reach the 50-year milestone with their global stature now greater than ever, the film combines extensive historical footage, much of it widely unseen, with contemporary commentaries by Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Ronnie Wood and former Stones Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor. Period interviews, extensive live performance material and news archives give the production a truly kinetic aura and no-holds-barred approach.

The well-received Crossfire Hurricane premiered on HBO in November, 2012.

Crossfire Hurricane is the latest title in a series of new and vintage Stones releases from Eagle Rock, following Stones in Exile, Some Girls, Live in Texas, ’78, Ladies and Gentlemen…The Rolling Stones, and Muddy Waters & The Rolling Stones Live At The Checkerboard Lounge Chicago 1981.

Bonus features on the DVD and Blu-Ray include previously unreleased concert footage –  “Live in Germany ‘65,”, NME Poll Winners concert footage from 1964 and 1965, a new interview with director Brett Morgen, “The Sound and Music of Crossfire Hurricane,” footage from The Arthur Haynes Show (1964), and the theatrical trailer.
