Rolling Stones Rock n Roll Circus



Here's a rarity coming out in a deluxe box set. Rolling Stones Rock n Roll Circus (1968)... The Stones, The Who, Jethro Tull, Taj Mahal, Marianne Faithful and a supergroup called The Dirty Mac which includes Clapton and John Lennon. No word of whether it will be a 5.1 mix yet, but it includes HD audio, so I would guess that is a possibility. 4 discs: 2 CD, Blu and DVD. Should be interesting.

Nice! Is it an old festival recording? If it's live I'll pass but if not, definitely will get it.

It was intended to be a television show hosted by the Stones. The BBC shot it in 35mm with very high production values, but for some reason the Stones didn't like it and soft peddled it. Word is, it was because the Who's performance upstaged the hosts. In any case, it was the last time Brian Jones played with the Stones, so it's hugely significant historically. I've never seen it. I've only heard the songs on bootleg LPs. Trademark of Quality. It's one of the 60s holy grails... kind of like the British equivalent of the T.A.M.I. Show. Image and sound quality should be top notch.

I actually have the original DVD version of this concert. I was researching this new release and found this interesting.

The stereo version on the CD and vinyl is a “new mix” while the blu-ray offers a Dolby Atmos surround mix. ABKCO are claiming that this is “the first archival concert film to be mixed using” Atmos.

Here's a link to the announcement too.

Sounds cool for sure. Will have to probably pick this one up at some point.

Own the original dvd now. It really is a great "show". I have to put it in once a month or so. For being 50 years old, the picture quality is very good. The back jacket says it was remastered from original 16MM negative. The colors of everyone's costumes is astounding. There already is a 5.1 or 2.0 option on this one(original).



I agree with The Who stealing the show comment. The Dirty Mac Band also had Mitch Mitchell from The Jimi Hendrix Experience on drums. Also Tony Iommi from Black Sabbath plays with Jethro Tull. Just about every star from the day is on here. Either playing OR in the crowd. Led Zeppelin was originally set to be there, but it didn't come about.



Every track is awesome. Well, with the exception of Yoko squawking something. Can't even listen to that.

"Live", but not really a concert? If you are a fan of the greats of the era, you WANT this.

Amazon Prime Video has a pre-order for a UHD version, too.

I wonder if Michael Lindsay-Hogg is any relation to Sir Denis Eton-Hogg? Who were the Hoggs?

Make me grow brainiac fingers, but with more hair!

The Dirty Mac is probably the first "Super-group". Before that was even a thing. Maybe Cream, Blind Faith of course. But just imagine if these four Lennon (minus Yoko), Richards, Clapton, and Mitchell stayed the course. WOW!.


Well, gotta go put it in and relax with a cold one. Would love it more if I could relax with a "hot one", like when I first bought it. But my employer dictates what I do at home on my own time.

Damn, everybody is just "out of it", in a good way. Just the back and forth between Jagger and Lennon is priceless. Legend is it took 36 hours to shoot. The first audience finally gave up and they brought in a second fresh audience for the Stones set. Wish I had been there!

I’m not sure I’ll even touch this. The idiotic fight with ABKCO drags on and there’s a LOT of extras that will not be included. No rehearsals or extra tracks including a bunch of legendary stuff by The Who that was left off the original.

Looks like just another money grab by the Stones who excel in giving us the least for the most money.

You couldn't ask for a better period for the Stones... right between Satanic Majesty and Beggar's Banquet. I can't see passing this up at all unless you just don't care for the Stones. Even if you don't, there's The Who, Taj Mahal, Jethro Tull and Marianne Faithful- shot on film in a studio with great sound. The only thing that comes remotely close to that is the T.A.M.I. Show.

Even the DVD version of this is incredible, I believe it was DTS also, Interesting is the debut of Tull with Toni Iomi on guitar before joining Sabbath, Zeppelin was also to be at this circus,but they had just formed and i believe it was Jaggar who turned them down, It is a blast to watch,but be forewarned the part with Yoko destroys the enjoyment unless you like fingernails loudly scraping chalk boards or engines running without oil !

No apologies need to be made for this. It's fantastic musicians winging it and blowing the roof off the joint. It doesn't get better than this. Yoko is mixed down to acceptable levels (almost inaudible).

IOMMI, Ward, Butler and Osbourne were already in a band at the time of this. It just happened to be called "Earth". Later changed to Black Sabbath. Iommi didn't "join" Black Sabbath. He and Bill Ward were the two founding members of Earth/Sabbath. These two recruited Butler/Osbourne to form the classic line up. Also he did not really play. The only instrument that is live is Ian's flute. His guitar is not even plugged in. That is why he has his hat covering his face, he was embarrassed. That comes straight from Ian Anderson.


I like your re post of my previous post. See #6
