Eagle Vision have now put the footage out on DVD:

When Mojo Buford came over for his last tour, he had some copies of the original recording – very grainy but nontheless a brilliant memory. Mojo is playing harp and his big smile is quite obvious… he was toally bemused by Mick’s gyrating and cavorting in front of him and I won’t repeat what he said!!!!
