Editorial Reviews

The Rolling Stones 1978 tour of the USA in support of that year's Some Girls album is considered by fans to be one of their very best. The tour followed immediately on the release of the Some Girls album and by the time the band arrived in Texas in mid-July the album had hit the No.1 spot on the US charts. The tour took a back to basics approach, with the band and their music very much at the forefront and little or no elaborate staging. Filmed at the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth, Texas, on July 18th, 1978, this concert is typical of the tour with the Rolling Stones delivering a raw, energetic performance in front of a crowd who are clearly loving the show. Many of the tracks from Some Girls are included in the live set with a sprinkling of Stones classics from earlier albums. Originally shot on 16mm film, the footage has been carefully restored and the sound remixed and remastered by Bob Clearmountain from the original multitrack tapes. This is undeniably the Rolling Stones at the peak of their form. / Bonus Features: Newly filmed interview with Mick Jagger; Tomorrow featuring Dan Aykroyd and Mick Jagger from Saturday Night Live, October 1978; Shattered , Respectable and Beast Of Burden performed by The Rolling Stones, introduced by Laraine Newman from Saturday Night Live, October 1978; Excerpts from ABC 20/20 Special, introduced by Hugh Downs with interviews by Geraldo Rivera from 20/20, June 1978 5 mins in total includes Mick, Keith, Ronnie and Bill; Interview with Mick [France Aug 2011] 15 mins / Track Listing: 1) Let It Rock 2) All Down The Line 3) Honky Tonk Women 4) Star Star 5) When The Whip Comes Down 6) Beast Of Burden 7) Miss You 8) Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me) 9) Shattered 10) Respectable 11) Far Away Eyes 12) Love In Vain 13) Tumbling Dice 14) Happy 15) Sweet Little Sixteen 16) Brown Sugar 17) Jumpin Jack Flash

Customer Reviews

Now comes this DVD/CD set.
Derek
A few words about some of the songs: "Let It Rock." Good old-fashioned rock and roll, good guitar work by Richards and Wood.
Steven A. Peterson
Sound and picture quality is good considering the concert footage was shot in 16mm!

I confess this isn't my favorite period for the Stones, at the time I didn't care for the Stones following trends instead of the public following what the Stones wanted to do. But I couldn't help but be impressed with the performance in this film, if this was the Stones proving they were still on top I have to admit they accomplished that.

Ronnie Wood still playing guitar like he meant it instead of mugging and posing, what wouldn't I give to see that again. Keith looked and sounded good, you can see the beginnings of those patented Keef stage moves that later would too often substitute for playing guitar. He must have been clean at this point, every time he and Mick had to meet at one mic to sing together he was there every time right on the beat. Jagger, well what can you say, talk about the hardest working man in show biz. I was surprised at how much guitar he played, and not one costume change, how modest. Charlie was on fire, whip crack energy for the whole show. Bill Wyman looked like it could have been 1969 or 1989, the only thing moving on him were his fingers but he sure was in the groove. Good to see Stu, and Ian McLagan, and no brass section was also a surprise, I didn't realize how stripped-down this tour was. Seeing the primitive (by today's standards) PA setup was funny, and watching Mick climb around in front of the heaps of speakers made me think that must have been what led him to go for bigger stages that would let him dance all over and work the crowd on the sides, no need to put one foot on a roadie's shoulder for balance.

This was the last gasp for the music carrying the show without oversized staging and special effects, maybe it was because the Stones thought they had something to prove but the energy of this concert is amazing.

Everybody knows the story: in 1977-78 faced with the twin perils of punk and disco, and with Keith on bail for trafficing charges, Mick and Keith got serious and wrote some of their best music ever. Nothing like a crisis to shake off the stuppor of entrenched success.

But then they toured. They played big arenas and stadiums, and then for some reason they played to 2,500 people in Fort Worth Texas for this show that was filmed. The show is mythic here in Fort Worth and the video shows why. No horn section, no backup singers, no inflatables or fireworks, just rock and roll. And unlike Don Henley or some other rockers from that period, Mick doesn't try to tell us how to vote, ask people to sing along or go into long explanations of why they wrote a particular song. There is one "thank you", one "you having a good time?" and one succinct tounge in cheek apology for why the energy was low (it wasn't, but according to Mick's short explanation, their tounges must have been somewhere other than in their own cheek the night before). Half bragging, but he need not apologise for a lack of energy. I mean people where whooping it up and clapping their hands to a movie! Oh yeah, Keith and Ronnie share a join on stage, but it doesn't detract from the rock and roll none. They play Tumblin' Dice, Brown Sugar, most of the "Some Girls' Record, a fair bit of Exile, and a great version of "Star Star", but they played very little from 68 or before except covers. Oh yeah, they did do one song from '68, "Jumpin' Jack Flash" which was so upbeat and blistering that I didn't want it to end. I saw it in the theater two weeks ago, if the DVD is the same, I can watch it over and over. . . it dosn't have to end.

Video from this tour is hard to find.

It seems that the Stones are agreeing to document in High Def, all major filmed landmark gigs of their amazing career. I suspect this is not just for the money (and yet how that cash must roll in) No.. They are now at a late career stage where there is a need to ensure that their posterity is well preserved. The Stones have nothing after all like the Beatles definitive Anthology.The 25x5 documentary of a quarter century ago is only half of their career to date! I ramble...

This is a great concert. Apart from the great performance musically, you get most of the "Some Girls" album live on stage. Eight numbers from it I counted!
Shattered, Beast of Burden and especially When the whip comes down, are all first rate.
Pity it wasnt filmed in 35 mm as these 16 mm films even when cleaned up to HD still have a "misty" look comparitively. However, it is of its time and we must savour it. On the cinema showing on Oct 4th here in England, I was amazed at how well Bill Wymans bass was put at the front of the soundmix. Thank you Mr Clearmountain, you have shown how fundamental his basslines were to the Stones.

Enjoy this gig folks and I hope the blu ray is as good as the cinema release. Roll on further filmed gigs in blu ray. Lets have Paris Aux Abattoirs 76, Hampton Roads 81 and maybe Marquee London 71 if this could scrub up well enough from the old Lion TV tapes. Ged

Hidden away in the archives for 33 years, this record of the Stones' "Some Girls in Texas" concert is an absolute gem. Playing with a sense of conviction, power, and recklessness that essentially captures the mood of the just released "Some Girls" album, the band is in fine form. Mick's vocals are strong, Keith and relative newcomer Ronnie Wood are in their prime, and Charlie Watts demonstrates once again why he may be the most underrated drummer in rock. Listening to Bill Wyman play bass confirms what I've felt for some time now...the bass lines simply don't sound the same since Daryl Jones took his spot. Bill is unassuming as ever yet his contribution to the Stones' signature sound cannot be overlooked or dismissed.

In contrast to recent Stones' tours, there's plenty of interaction between the band members...particularly Mick and Ronnie...and the stripped-down 1978 edition means a lot of shared-mike vocals with Mick, Keith, and Ronnie occasionally trying to outdo one another. The boys are clearly enjoying themselves yet I couldn't help but get the feeling they were genuinely committed to delivering a great performance.

Ronnie's playing deserves special mention here since we hardly see him cut loose with as many solos anymore. For whatever reason, and there are plenty that come to mind, Mick and Keith seem to keep him under wraps these days and it's a real shame. His style is totally different from Mick Taylor's but Ronnie's lead work on the 1975 and 1978 Tours stand on their own merit.

Plenty of variety here...a couple of Chuck Berry covers, some well-known Stones' classics, eight cuts from the "Some Girls" release, which encompasses quite a few musical genres on its' own...the concert is fast, furious, and in-your-face. I'm looking forward to picking up the DVD when it becomes available when I'll be the one to decide just how loud it should be played!
