Critic Reviews for The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus
An incredible timepiece concert film that's a window into the rock scene of the 1960s.
Audience Reviews for The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus
Great performances from every band featured in this film. It is really a treat to get to see all of these bands appearing so young on screen. I can't never get enough of Pete Townshend windmills. The main problems with this film is just the fact that it is terribly mastered. We need a blu-Ray copy right now... Also Yoko Ono's glass shattering screams were bothering.
This strange '60s concert film headlined by The Rolling Stones is pretty cool. The Stones rock as expected (hey Brian Jones is still there!), but their opening acts are Jethro Tull, The Who, and a one off supergroup called The Dirty Mac: which features John Lennon, Eric Clapton, Mitch Mitchell, and Keith Richards...pretty awesome during song #1 (The Beatles "Yer Blues") but I think I and everyone else could do without the talentless Yoko's squealing on song #2. Mostly this is just a stylish and cool bunch of performances pulled together by The Stones and their Circus theme, which is somewhat fun (a neat conversation between Lennon and Jagger is cool). Directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg, who also directed the Beatles break-up documentary "Let it Be".
Rolling Stones and The Who aside (great enough right), there is a GEM of a segment where John Lennon, Keith Richards, Eric Clapton and Mitch Mitchell (Hendrix's drummer) perform "Yer Blues" from The White Album. This cannot be overvalued because of the rare live performances by any Beatle until Wings came out. This supergroup does one more song, but of course Yoko ruined it with her weird vocal experiments. Also you can see Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi when he was briefly with Jethro Tull.
