Stones’ Some Girls Tour Comes to DVD

 

 

First time around for
the high quality stuff.

On November 21, Eagle Rock Entertainment drops a new
DVD/Blu-ray from the Rolling Stones, Some
Girls Live in Texas
1978
. It captures the Glimmer Twins at Fort Worth’s
Will Rogers Memorial
Center on July 18, 1978,
knee-deep in their Some Girls tour.
That road trip is what many fans consider to be one of the band’s greatest
ever, due to the band’s stripped-down, “back to basics” approach both musically
and visually following the excesses of some of the earlier tours the band had
mounted that decade.

 

The tour has been bootlegged to a considerable degree over
the years, including the Fort Worth
show, particularly on audio. For example, check out a pretty amazing quality
take of “Miss You” from Fort Worth
at the bottom. But this appears to be the first time a high-quality video of
the July show has widespread circulation, officially or unofficially – most of
the clips to date have been on par with this good-sounding but murky-looking
one (which, we stress, is not from
the upcoming DVD):

 

 

 

 

 

Some Girls songs
like “Miss You,” “Respectable,” “Beast Of Burden,” “When The Whip Comes Down,”
and “Shattered,” weave into a set list which also includes “All Down The Line,”
“Honky Tonk Women,” “Tumbling Dice,” 
“Jumpin’ Jack Flash,” “Happy,” and “Brown Sugar.” Originally shot on
16mm film, the concert footage has been carefully restored with the sound
remixed and remastered by Bob Clearmountain from the original multi track
tapes.

 

The set is also to be available as special edition DVD + CD
and Blu-Ray + CD digipack presentations including a reproduction tour program.
Bonus features on all formats will include a new interview with Mick Jagger.
