"The Rolling Stones - Rock and Roll Circus

What can you say about a recorded show that, until the late 1990's, was kept from view to the general public, (for reasons unknown), but, turns out to be one of the greatest 1960's period rock musical performances ever captured on film?

Everyone involved, from Taj Mahal & John Lennon to Jethro Tull, The Who & especially The Rolling Stones themselves put on a wonderfully memorable show! Looking at it now makes one regret that many of the participants are no longer physically with us, (Lennon, Jimi Hendrix Drummer Mitch Mitchell, The Who's Keith Moon, pianist Nicky Hopkins), but, the most obviously missed person to me, is the late Brian Jones.

This show turned out to be his last public performance with The Stones & I understand he was not in the best of health. Despite that, the band performs a blazing set in the final act that not only sounds great, but is fascinating & very entertaining to watch.

This show has been described by some as a 1960's time-capsule of a moment in time that was great & will never come again. That sounds about right to me!

Some of the other features, such as additional acts performances & various voice-over commentary choices add even more depth.

Thia is one of those rock music shows & soundtracks that really should be in your personal library if you're a fan of The Stones, The Who or just 60's rock music in general.

Two thumbs way up there!"
