Rolling Stones To Release Expanded Version Of ‘Rock And Roll Circus’

The star-studded 1968 classic concert special The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus will be reissued as a massive multi-media box set on June 7 via ABKCO.

The reissue will feature a collection of unreleased recordings from the impromptu supergroup the Dirty Mac featuring John Lennon, Keith Richards, Mitch Mitchell, and Eric Clapton.

Director Michael Lindsay-Hogg filmed the Rolling Stones‘ 1968 December performance, but it never aired due to Brian Jones‘ departure from the band and his eventual death.

Jones was the founder and the original leader of the Rolling Stones.

Rock and Roll Circus was officially released in 1996.

The box set will also feature a 44-page book with David Dalton‘s essay about the event for Rolling Stone, the entertainment magazine reported.
