"On May 12, 1968, Brian Jones took the stage for his last public concert with the Rolling Stones.
Setlist; Jumpin' 01.Jack Flash (Live premiere) Play Video; 02. (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction.
The show, which took place at Empire Pool in Wembley, London, was that year’s New Musical Express Pollwinners’ Concert, and the Stones were on hand to accept their award for Best R&B Group. They’d been keeping a relatively low profile since the previous April, when they closed out their most recent tour with a show in Athens, and they wouldn’t play in front of a crowd again until the following November, when they kicked off a visit to the U.S. with a show in Fort Collins, Colo.
In the interim, Jones’ presence in the band he’d founded was quickly fading, the victim of his own substance abuse issues as well as growing personal and creative conflicts between himself and other members of the band — particularly Keith Richards, who’d wooed away Jones’ fiancée Anita Pallenberg a year earlier.
In the band’s inner circle, the writing for Jones’ Stones ouster may have been on the wall by the spring of 1968, but from the outside, it appeared the group had bigger problems than its members’ domestic disputes. In fact, according to some pundits, the Stones were already washed up — just days before they took the stage on May 12, the Daily Express published an editorial pointing out that the band hadn’t had a No. 1 single in the U.K. since 1966.
Any handwringing over the Stones’ long-term commercial prospects seems silly now, but to be fair, the band had suffered a certain amount of creative drift since “Paint It Black” topped the charts. Wandering away from R&B and into pop and psychedelia with a string of albums that included Between the Buttons, Flowers and Their Satanic Majesties Request, they seemed to be losing a bit of their early momentum.
That all changed after the NME show, which consisted of a brief two-song set that included “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” as well as the live debut of their new single, “Jumpin’ Jack Flash.” The song, released May 24 in the U.K. and June 1 in the States, brought the Stones roaring back to their roots.
“It was the best thing we ever did with [producer] Jimmy Miller,” Richards later asserted, according to the book Keith Richards: The Biography. “As soon as I pick up the guitar and play that riff, something happens here, in your stomach. It’s one of the better feelings in the world. You just jump on the riff and it plays you. Matter of fact, it takes you over. An explosion would be the best way to describe it. It’s the one that I would immediately go to if I wanted to approach the state of nirvana.”

As the Youtube commenters say, the audio from the clip is mid 70's Stones. I'm guessing 75 or 76 w/Ronnie? Someone on this board must know where/when the audio from the clip came from!

sorry about that. I'll leave it up for the story it tells, i hadn't listened closely enough; i saw 'rare' and was hoping. so apologies for confusion or unintentionally misleading anyone. i kind of bought into what the uploader had posted. some kind of bell did go off but I ignored it and rushed to post...Great ears and great fans here picked up on it right away thankfully. I guess I should change the title; and make it clear the audio is from '75.

Here's some film from what they say is '68; can't confirm but cool footage and excellent audio.

This is the original uncut, silent footage that was posted to YouTube in November last year.

'Roaring Back To Their Roots'. What a load. The Stones never sounded previously like they did in 1968. They totally re-invented themselves, with Jimmy Miller's help. In the very beginning there was some rock and blues, but nothing of the caliber of 1968 and beyond. They don't even sound like the same band. And they soon became a pop band, churning out hit singles, incorporating the newest sounds. There is nothing on Satanic, or ever, to point to what was coming. What they became on Beggar's is unique, a new sound that fully flowered on Let It Bleed.

That's just wrong. Listen to the chords of Citadel, and then put on JJF.

Cool footage; it shows the stage "coming of age" of Keef; the leather jacket, the scarf around the waist and the moves that Keith will keep on developing the following decades. Compare to who he was few years before on the stage of the TAMI show 1964, 1968 marks the begining of the keith's mutation into the Keef rockandroll icon.
Rockandroll,
Mops

What about Hyde Park in July?

That was my first thought too.

I know it wasn't "in front of a crowd" but what about the Circus?

the shoot 'em dead, brainbell jangler!
