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
Some Girls è sicuramente uno degli album più belli dei Rolling Stones. Il 18 Luglio 1978, quando il gruppo si esibì al Will Rogers Memorial Center di Fort Worth l'album era al N. 1 della classifica americana. Lo show, originariamente ripreso in 16 mm ed ora meticolosamente restaurato, è grezzo, essenziale, pieno di energia. Oltre alla maggior parte dei brani di Some Girls comprende anche una serie di classici tratti dai primi lavori dei Rolling Stones. Il suono dei nastri multi traccia originali è stato remixato e rimasterizzato da Bob Clearmountain.

la qualità delle immagini non è ottima e non penso che la versione dvd sia peggiore.

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. The people who shot this film had to badger Jagger into letting them do it. But I can see why at long last Jagger decided to let it out of the vault (apparently they didn't release it back then because they thought they looked too old!), a performance of this caliber does the band great credit. So color me impressed despite preferring the band's earlier work, this is a terrific contribution to the Stone's legacy.
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
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. Other than the SNL performance we had nada but a very bad bootlegged hand cam of 6 songs. This dvd, if it is the same show they played in the cinemas, is worth owning. To a Stones fan, the idea of unreleased video (and audio) of the Stones from this period is kinda like a historian finding a heretofore unknown original text of Alexander the Great's thoughts on battle tactics. "Oh my God, so that's how they did it". But even a casual fan will enjoy this video as it will instantly redeem your blowout game watching party and turn it into a rock and roll party with songs that everybody knows done by men in their mid-thirties who had something to prove in 1978.
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!
