Yer Blues: Lennon, Clapton, Mitchell, Richards

This was part of The Rolling Stones' Rock N Roll Circus, their 1968 extravaganza intended as a TV special but which was never broadcast. Apparently Mick Jagger wasn't happy with The Stones' own performance which had been delayed by the cameras breaking down and problems with the scene shifters and roadies setting things up. Plus they were a bit rusty and Brian Jones was off his bonce as a result of substance abuse. But there's nowt wrong with this performance by The Dirty Mac. This took place about two weeks after Cream's farewell concert and three weeks after the release of The Beatles' White Album. And about six weeks after the release of Electric Ladyland.
