5.0 out of 5 stars Some Girls DVD Rocks, 30 Dec 2011
This review is from: The Rolling Stones: Some Girls, Live In Texas '78 (DVD / CD) [2011] (DVD)
Brilliant. Snatches of the video have been in collectors' hands for years. To finally see the whole show is fantastic. Some early, restored recordings are a bit of a disappointment but this one holds up well. Small gigs have always been a collector's favourite and I put this one up there with the best. A nice raw sound. Visuals up-close and personal. Mick is very Hammy (OK, a poser, but when isn't he?). You could accuse him of trying a bit too hard but overall that only knocks 0.009% off the pleasure that I got from watching this performance.

There is a lot of energy in this show, presumably they were trying to give Punks a run for their money. What Mick never understood was that they didn't need to compete (couldn't compete). I now see the SG's songs in a new light. Indeed, I see all of the songs in the set in a new light. Mick delivers them like little stories. For most of the time he is a character 'talking to the audience'. There is a lot of contrast and texture in this show. It's a while since I had listened to a recording of it and so it came across as very fresh.

The Some Girls CD release is also a must-have. The second CD is a gem. It's obviously 'B-list' as a set of songs but it's coherent and the songs are interesting. You even get Claudine (of which there are at least two versions in circulation, and this might be a third)Some Girls (2CD Deluxe Digipack Edition). Like this idea? Try the Stone's Official site for a download of Brussels Affair (it will blow your head of!)
