  • Shown at the 1996 New York Film Festival. A Rolling Stones presentation. Color by Technicolor UK. Additional credits: Dave Ashley Smith (sound); Jimmy Miller (live recording producer); Glyn Johns (live recording engineer); Mick Gochanour (associate producer); Robin Klein (post-production producer and editor). Shot in 16mm, and blown up to 35mm. Although shot in 1968, the film was reportedly never released because The Rolling Stones were unhappy with their performance, and feared that The Who upstaged them. The Stones' plan to re-film their performance was halted by the death of group member Brian Jones. Songs include: "Jumpin' Jack Flash," "Parachute Woman," "You Can't Always Get What You Want," "Sympathy for the Devil" and "Salt of the Earth" performed by The Rolling Stones. "A Quick One While He's Away" performed by The Who. "Song for Jeffrey" performed by Jethro Tull. "Ain't That a Whole Lot of Love" performed by Taj Mahal. "Something Better" performed by Marianne Faithfull. "Whole Lotta Yoko" performed by Yoko Ono. "Yer Blues" performed by Dirty Mac (comprised of John Lennon, Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, and Mitch Mitchell).

    Chicago Sun-Times

    "The entire cast wears circus garb that looks left over from The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper cover, and there's a transcendent moment when Mick Jagger and John Lennon get silly with each other."
    USA Today

    "[T]he Stones' performance stands up well alongside their guests..."
