5.0 out of 5 stars Superb performance from the Stones, 6 Oct. 2011
This review is from: Some Girls - Live In Texas '78 [Blu-ray] [2011] (Blu-ray)
It seems 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 their cash must roll in!) No..They are now at a late career stage where there is a need to ensure their posterity is preserved. The Stones have nothing after all like the Beatles definitive anthology.The 25x5 documentary twenty five years ago is only half their career to date!!!! I ramble....

This is a great concert.Saw it in Vue cinema, Hull on Oct 4th 2011. Apart from the great performance musically, you get most of the "Some girls" album live onstage. Shattered, Beast of burden and especially,When the whip comes down are all first rate.

Pity it wasnt filmed in 35 mm as these 16mm 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, 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 76, Hampton Roads 81 and maybe Marquee London 71 if this could scrub up well enough from the old LTV tapes
