Gem Stones: The Lost Treasure

Roll Over Beethoven - Lost 1970 Super 8 Footage

Palaido Palazzo Dello Sport, Milan, Italy, October 1, 1970

The musical track (somewhat out of sync) added to the silent 8 film is Milan 1970 2nd Show. Jagger makes a lyrical error before the solo break in the middle of the song. He sings the "Wiggle like a glow worm" line instead of "Well if you feel it like it...".

The first Rolling Stones recordings of Roll Over Beethoven were heard on the "Saturday Club" BBC radio broadcast on October 26, 1963 and hosted by Brian Matthews. It was recorded another three times for radio broadcast, but unlike the Beatles or Led Zeppelin the Stones have never released their BBC performances from the 1960's. So we are left with unauthorized titles like the "Cops & Robbers" EP, "Wanted: Now & Alive" EP, "Beautiful Delilah", and "Beat Beat Beat at the Beeb" as the sources for the various versions of this early Stones favorite. The Stones included two Chuck Berry songs in the set-list of their blockbuster tour of the States in 1969. Both songs, Carol and Little Queenie, made it on to the landmark live in 1969 LP "Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out!" and in keeping with popularity of these tunes the Stones decided to include three Berry songs for the follow-up European Tour set-list replacing Roll Over Beethoven for Carol, keeping Little Queenie, and adding Let It Rock.
