Filmed Dec. 11, 1968, and originally intended for TV broadcast, this odd, mostly enjoyable mix or rock and circus acts can finally be seen. Appearances by Jethro Tull, the Who, Taj Mahal, Marianne Faithfull and John Lennon are broken up by fire-eating and the like before a mini-concert by the Rolling Stones wraps up the show.

The early going is a bit trying, but the Stones redeem things.
