The Rolling Stones have released their classic performance of ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want’ as part of the deluxe reissue of their classic Rock And Roll Circus. You can check out the clip below.
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.
The performance of the widely-acclaimed Let It Bleed track sees Mick Jagger getting up close and personal with the audience as he stares directly down the camera lens.
As uDiscover Music previously reported, The 4K Dolby Vision restoration of the famed concert film The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus will be released by ABKCO Films and ABKCO Music & Records in June. The newly-expanded, star-laden special will be available on Blu-ray for the first time ever, as well as on DVD and for digital download (TVOD).
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 will be available on the new release for the first time ever. Bonus material also features recordings by the late concert pianist Julius Katchen and three additional songs by Taj Mahal.
“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!”
Meanwhile, The Rolling Stones recently announced details of their rescheduled ‘No Filter’ North American tour dates which were postponed following Mick Jagger’s recovery from heart surgery. The shows were originally scheduled to begin in April but had to be postponed when the frontman underwent heart replacement surgery.
