Fans of late '60s rock and roll will find this documentary to be a rare and precious jewel, as it contains shining performances from such giants as The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton
, John Lennon
and Yoko Ono
, and The Who. Originally planned as a television special in 1968, it was shelved shortly after filming because the manager of the Stones
, who were acting producers of the show, felt that another of the acts, The Who, upstaged them. The show is set up as a circus with the musicians appearing in elaborate psychedelic costumes. Other performers include Taj Mahal, Marianne Faithfull
, and the only recently formed Jethro Tull. Also included is a one-of-a-kind performance by Dirty Mack, a one-night-stand band comprised of Eric Clapton, John Lennon, Mitch Mitchell, Keith Richard
, Jimi Hendrix
and Yoko Ono.
