Recorded before a live audience in London in 1968, The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus was originally conceived as a BBC-TV special. Directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg, it centres on the original line up of The Rolling Stones - Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Brian Jones, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman (with Nicky Hopkins and Rocky Dijon) - who serve as both the show’s hosts and featured attraction. For the first time in front of an audience, “The World’s Greatest Rock and Roll Band” performs six Stones classics. The program also includes extraordinary performances by The Who, Jethro Tull, Taj Mahal, Marianne Faithfull, Yoko Ono, and The Dirty Mac. A ‘supergroup’ before the term had even been coined, the band was comprised of Eric Clapton (lead guitar), Keith Richards (bass), Mitch Mitchell of The Jimi Hendrix Experience (drums) and John Lennon on guitar and vocals.
The Limited Deluxe Edition includes the film on Blu-Ray ray and DVD, plus the 2CD expanded soundtrack, and a perfect-bound 44-page book with custom foldout gatefold design. The book also includes David Dalton’s original 1969 Rolling Stone essay and on-set photographs by Mike Randolf.
The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus soundtrack has been expanded to 28 tracks, received a new mix and 192k 24 bit HD restoration. Bonus material included by the late concert pianist Julius Katchen, three additional songs by Taj Mahal and never before heard recordings of The Dirty Mac performing The Beatles classic, 'Revolution' and the aptly titled track 'Warmup Jam'.
Released here for the first time on Vinyl as a 3 LP package.
Also available as 2CD, and Deluxe 2CD/DVD/Blu-Ray editions.
