Remastered Hi-Resolution Audio!
Includes Newly Discovered Performances by The Dirty Mac!
The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus features remastered hi-res audio. Includes newly discovered material and never before released performances here on three 180g LPs - first time on vinyl!
Directed by Let It Be's Michael Lindsay-Hogg, the performance was recorded in front of a live audience in London in 1968 and was originally conceived as a BBC-TV special.
"It was an incredible shoot, I think, 36 hours or something," said Keith Richards of the historic day back in December 68. "I remember not remembering everything towards the end but it was fun we went through two audiences wore one out it was great!"
The Rolling Stones Rock And Roll Circus soundtrack has been remixed and expanded to 28 songs and released across triple vinyl.
The show also featured performances from The Who, Jethro Tull, Taj Mahal, Marianne Faithfull, Yoko Ono, as well as supergroup The Dirty Mac consisting of Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, Mitch Mitchell of The Jimi Hendrix Experience and John Lennon. Unheard tracks by the collective are available on this release for the first time ever.
"You are about to be transported to another age: swinging London in the late sixties. The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus is a time capsule. Two days in December 1968 that in many ways capture the spontaneity, aspirations and communal spirit of an entire era. ...for a brief moment it seemed that rock 'n' roll would inherit the earth." - David Dalton
"...brings back the sleek young Stones in all their insolent glory, recalling a time when they ruled the roost." - New York Times
"The whole thing is awash with skewed period charm, with the late-'60s 'anything goes' mentality..." - The Guardian
