Stones Return To 'Rock And Roll Circus' 

As tipped here last month, ABKCO will on Oct. 12 offer
the first DVD release of the Rolling Stones' "Rock and
Roll Circus." The December 1968 concert was filmed for
a television special but was never broadcast. It was
finally released on CD and VHS in 1996.

The DVD edition is sourced to the original 16mm
negatives, while the audio has been remixed in 5.1
Surround Sound. Commentary tracks are offered from
Rolling Stones members Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and
Bill Wyman, plus Yoko Ono, Jethro Tull's Ian Anderson,
Marianne Faithfull and director Michael Lindsay-Hogg,
among others.

Among the previously unreleased clips are a backstage
meeting between Jagger, Ono and John Lennon; an
alternate take of Lennon performing the Beatles' "Yer
Blues" with Mitch Mitchell, Richards and Eric Clapton;
three additional Taj Mahal songs; an interview with
the Who's Pete Townshend; and Fatboy Slim's 2003 remix
of the Stones' "Sympathy for the Devil."

"Rock and Roll Circus" features the Stones performing
tunes that had just appeared on their "Beggars
Banquet" album: "Parachute Woman," "No Expectations,"
"Sympathy for the Devil" and a giddy version of "Salt
of the Earth." They also performed their current hit
at the time, "Jumpin' Jack Flash" and premiered "You
Can't Always Get What You Want," which would debut the
following year on the album "Let It Bleed."
