    Rolling Stones "Rock And Roll Circus" Poster with Autographs (Abkco, 1995). The story of the Rock and Roll Circus is pretty amazing in its own right. Conceived as a television special, it was filmed in the UK during December, 1968. The entire production was modeled after an old fashioned three-ring circus, with the Rolling Stones as headliners, and Mick Jagger as ringmaster. The line-up of talent was amazing. Joining the Stones was the very best of the current English rock scene, including Jethro Tull (shortly after the release of their first album, with Black Sabbath guitarist Tommy Iommi filling in for the recently departed Mick Abrahams), the Who, longtime Stones friend Marianne Faithful, plus American blues sensation Taj Mahal. As a special bonus, a once-in-a-lifetime supergroup was formed -- called the Dirty Mac -- featuring John Lennon, Yoko Ono, Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, and drummer Mitch Mitchell, of the Jimi Hendrix Experience. Photos and a feature article had appeared early in 1969 in Rolling Stone magazine, but after filming, the Stones were reportedly unhappy with their performance (and the fact that they were upstaged by the Who's incredible set), and the entire thing sat collecting dust. It became the stuff of legend until it finally saw general release 1995, in both DVD and CD editions. This incredible framed presentation features a NM promo poster from that '95 release, plus a copy of the CD and booklet, all matted along with two mind-blowing autographed pages, one by John Lennon, the other featuring the '68 Rolling Stones, including Brian Jones, who died the following year shortly after leaving the band. The entire framed item measures 38" x 34"; the Stones autograph page has a light stain through the Watts and Wyman signatures, and the mat has a few small nicks, but these in no way diminish the impact of this very impressive item. You can't always get what you want, Stones fans -- unless you bid high!
