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 18 July 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.

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
I think it's fair to say that the lows are more obvious on the video than on the cd, which I would venture to suggest is a different (and superior) mix. As far as the video quality goes, it's perfectly Respectable, though to a degree the whole experience is somewhat diminished by Jagger's ill-fitting and far too revealing legwear. However, once he gets warmed up (takes a couple of songs, he initially sings very flat) Jagger is in fine and very hard working vocal form throughout. Keith, especially on the video, seems to be mixed way higher than Ronnie, which is unfortunate as at times his playing is far from inspired - e.g. compare the version of Let It Rock here with the one available on Rarities 1971 - 2003 recorded in Leeds in March 1971. No contest. Several of Keith's solos sound alarmingly cack-handed - he was clearly having an off night because there's plenty of evidence of him playing far better on later recordings.
But what's really interesting about this performance is how they turn into a different and far better band when they start playing their new album. They play 7 of the 10 songs from Some Girls in a block in the middle of the set, and frankly apart from slight problems getting any sound out of Ronnie's steel guitar on Far Away Eyes (which also features the rare sight of Mick Jagger playing piano, plus a guest spot from local boy Doug Kershaw on fiddle) they're all excellent. Just check out Jagger's vocal on Shattered, where his rhythmic dexterity is stunning.Read more ›
The sound is superb on this DVD, Micks vocals bounce from the rear speakers and really makes this sound mix work brilliantly.
The extras are also very entertaining with Mick obviously enjoying remenicing his past in a great interview.
Well put together and well worth getting, can't wait for what's next.
