The Dirty Mac were a one-time Englishmarker supergroup consisting of John Lennon, Eric Clapton, Keith Richards and Mitch Mitchell that Lennon put together for The Rolling Stones' TV special entitled The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus. Recorded on 11 December 1968, this was the first time that Lennon, who was still with The Beatles, had performed in public without the other Beatles. The Dirty Mac recorded a rendition of the Lennon-penned Beatles track "Yer Blues" and then went on to back up Yoko Ono and violinist Ivry Gitlis on a track called "Whole Lotta Yoko" (essentially an extended blues jam featuring Yoko Ono on vocals). The name, thought of by Lennon, was a play on "Fleetwood Mac" who at that time were a very popular band in England. When asked what type of guitar amp Lennon would like to use for the performance his answer was "One that works."

In 1996, The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus album of the event was issued, concurrently with a home video of the event. The DVD issue followed in 2004.
