The Rolling Stones’ fans are getting another archived show from the band this summer.

ABKCO Films and ABKCO Music & Records will release The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus June 7.  Originally recorded over the course of two days in December 1968 at the BBC Studios to promote the band’s then new album Beggar’s Banquet, the show ended up not being aired after then bassist Brian Jones left the band and later died.  The recording’s trailer is streaming now here.

Along with six vintage performances from The Rolling Stones, the recording also features performances from Taj Mahal, John Lennon, Marianne Faithful, Jethro Tull and The Who.

The performances are complimented by bonus content, such as interviews with John Lennon, Pete Townshend, and a handful of extra performances from Taj Mahal and Julius Katchen.  The full track listing for The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus is noted below along with the recording’s bonus content.
