On October 5th, ABKCO Films will release a 4K restoration of Sympathy for the Devil on DVD, Blu-ray and through digital services in celebration of its initial release 50 years ago.


Next up is the Stone’s landmark album Beggars Banquet, which is set for reissue release on November 16 and available on CD, vinyl and digital download.  The album will feature both the bathroom graffiti cover and the simple white cover, which their label opted for because they didn’t approve of the bathroom cover.  (Full track listing below.)

The third release is Rock and Roll Circus, the 1968 all-star show that featured the Stones, John Lennon, Yoko Ono, Eric Clapton, The Who, Jethro Tull and Marianne Faithfull.  Rock and Roll Circus will be available in a variety of audio and video formats and will be released in 2019.
