Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus Announced!

NEW YORK (Billboard) - ABKCO Records is preparing the Rolling Stones' film "Rock and Roll Circus" for DVD release.

The December 1968 concert was filmed for a television special, although it was never broadcast, because the Stones were not happy with their performance.

In 1996, ABKCO released a CD, videocassette and laserdisc of the event, which also featured performances by the Who, Jethro Tull, Taj Mahal, Marianne Faithfull and the Dirty Mac, a supergroup comprising John Lennon, Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, and Mitch Mitchell.

Directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg, the film 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."

Blink Digital, an independent DVD-authoring facility in New York, is preparing the DVD, which ABKCO hopes to release in the fourth quarter. It will feature a surround-sound mix and bonus content, including never-released performances from the concert and contemporary commentary from participants.

ABKCO recently released the second boxed set in its trilogy of Stones singles. The band's current label, Virgin Records, will on Aug. 24 release the previously import-only collection "Jump Back" in North America.

Sounds Awesome! I've been waiting for this release for a long, long time. The VHS and CD are both really fun to watch... hope this is good news to some of you.

I know there will be some new interview footage on there from Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull 'cause he mentioned it during his rubbing elbows concert tour last fall when I saw him in Washington, D.C. at Lisner Auditarium. Looking forward to it.

Black Sabbath fans take note: Tony Iommi plays guitar for Jethro Tull on their "Circus" performance.

Their circus 'performance' is only like 1 or 2 songs though right? Unless they have more unreleased material?

Worth it for the Yer Blues segment alone.

What about The Who's A Quick One? The Circus has a fantastic performance of that.
