Produced by ABKCO’s Grammy ® Award winning team, The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus archival concert film was re-mastered using Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos technologies for an unprecedented immersive experience, yielding incredible results.

One of the most memorable performances from the show was from Taj Mahal, rocking the audience with a rousing version of “Ain’t That A Lot Of Love.” This was clearly an artist in his creative prime, and we’re exhausted just watching him do his thing.

We’re proud to present the World Premiere of this video performance, in all its glory. Check it out below and tell us what you think!
