While fifty year anniversaries may seem to be a tremendous achievement for most bands (and people in general), to the Rolling Stones fifty years is much too pedestrian a benchmark to be meaningful. By 1964 the Stones were really rolling and here is a list of big 55th anniversaries to which fans of the band and music historians can look forward this year:

January 17 - Release of their first EP:



February - Release of Not Fade Away which reached #3 on the U.K. charts thus becoming their first top ten hit in the U.K.

April 16 - Release of The Rolling Stones their first LP in the U.K.

May 30 - Release of the LP with the title expanded to The Rolling Stones (England's Newest Hitmakers) in the U.S.A.:



June - Release of It's All Over Now the Stones' first #1 hit in the U.K.

June 3 - The Stones appear on Hollywood Palace hosted by Dean Martin, their first American television appearance:

June 5 - The Stones kick off their first American concert tour with a show in San Bernardino, California. They open with Not Fade Away and the set includes the rarely heard Beautiful Delilah number:

June 20 - The tour comes to an end with two shows at Carnegie Hall in New York.

September - Release of Time Is on My Side which reached #6 on the U.S. Billboard chart thus becoming their first top ten hit in the States.

October 25 - The Stones first appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show:

Following the show Sullivan reputedly said “I promise you they’ll never be back on our show. It took me seventeen years to build this show and I’m not going to have it destroyed in a matter of weeks.” But after having a chance to look at the ratings he sent the Stones this message "Received hundreds of letters from parents complaining about you, but thousands from teenagers saying how much they enjoyed your performance.”

October 29 - The Stones appear on the T.A.M.I. Show concert film:

So speaking of 50+ year anniversaries, The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus was filmed just over fifty years ago on 11 December 1968. The production was originally conceived by Mick Jagger as a concert show to be aired on the BBC to promote sales of the Stones' new Beggars Banquet LP. Performers included the Who, Jethro Tull, Taj Mahal, Marianne Faithfull plus a "super" (disaster?) group called the Dirty Mac consisting of John Lennon (guitar & vocals), Eric Clapton (lead guitar), Keith Richards (bass), Mitch Mitchell (drums) and Yoko Ono (shrieks). The Stones had evidently considered Led Zeppelin for a part in the show but decided that Jethro Tull would be a more interesting act. The Stones were to be the closing act.



Filming started at 2:00 PM. The Who performed early on and they were tight, energetic and simply great overall. Nothing about the production went as smoothly as hoped though. Everything took much longer than expected and the Stones accompanied by pianist Nicky Hopkins didn't get to play until 5:00 AM the next morning. By this time the studio audience was exhausted and just wanted the show to end.*While Mick Jagger seemed able to continue on nervous energy, *otherwise the Stones were dead tired and Brian Jones in particular was zonked out and barely conscious, Moreover they hadn't played live since finishing up their European concert tour in the spring of 1967. The Stones didn't think their performance overall was up to par, especially compared to that of the Who.



They therefore shelved the project. The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus didn't see the light of day until October 1996 when it was released as a historical document on video and as a CD. Here's the track list:

1.   "Mick Jagger's introduction of Rock and Roll Circus"       0:25
2.   "Entry of the Gladiators" (Julius Fučík)       0:55
3.   "Mick Jagger's introduction of Jethro Tull"       0:11
4.   "A Song for Jeffrey†" (Ian Anderson)   Jethro Tull   3:26
5.   "Keith Richards' introduction of The Who"       0:07
6.   "A Quick One, While He's Away" (Pete Townshend)   The Who   7:33
7.   "Over the Waves" (Juventino Rosas)       0:45
8.   "Ain't That a Lot of Love" (Homer Banks, Willie Dean "Deanie" Parker)   Taj Mahal   3:48
9.   "Charlie Watts' introduction of Marianne Faithfull"       0:06
10.   "Something Better" (Gerry Goffin, Barry Mann)   Marianne Faithfull   2:32
11.   "Mick Jagger's and John Lennon's introduction of The Dirty Mac"       1:05
12.   "Yer Blues" (Lennon–McCartney)   The Dirty Mac   4:27
13.   "Whole Lotta Yoko" (Yoko Ono)   The Dirty Mac, Yoko Ono, and Ivry Gitlis   4:49
14.   "John Lennon's introduction of The Rolling Stones/Jumpin' Jack Flash"   The Rolling Stones   3:35
15.   "Parachute Woman"   The Rolling Stones   2:59
16.   "No Expectations"   The Rolling Stones   4:13
17.   "You Can't Always Get What You Want"   The Rolling Stones   4:24
18.   "Sympathy for the Devil"   The Rolling Stones   8:49
19.   "Salt of the Earth"   The Rolling Stones   4:57



The Stones evidently also performed Confessin' the Blues and Route 66 on stage that morning but these numbers didn't find their way onto the 1996 release.

Here's a not often played B-side by the Stones from 1966:



Very bluesy and even Dylanesque!

 The greatest song ever written, played by the greatest rock band ever. How could you go wrong? Though, the arrangement wasn't very original. Sounds just like Dylan's arrangement.

I still enjoy this performance from the Ed Sullivan Show more than five decades later!

  I'm so glad "Some Girls" was released 40 years ago. Can you imagine what the pc police would have done to the Stones? They would have ended their career over some of the lyrics.

  "Black girls just wanna f*ck all night long, and I don't have that much jam"

I remember Garrett Morris on SNL retorting:
 "Mick, where you finding all these black girls?"
