On a hot night in July in Texas 1978 The Rolling Stones truly deserved to be called the Greatest Rock N Roll Band in the world. The Stones toured in 1975 with a hugh production, massive stage show, back up singers galore and horn section. There are plenty of bootlegs around of the Los Angeles show if you want to see what i mean. The band and the songs get lost in all the pomp. Jump ahead 3 years and they just released their best album since Exile, and strip the stage bare. Gone are the backup singers, so too the horn section, minimal lighting, Ian Stewart an original Stone is front and centre instead of Billy Preston who toured with them in the past. That's it no bells and whistles just the band hitting the stage hard and rocking it for an hour and a half. They perform 7 songs off the new album, now usually i would be against so much new material in a set list but not here. As great as the Some Girls album is, live the Stones stretch the songs out. Case in point listen to Miss You they lock into a groove and just go with it and the song keeps getting harder and harder and when it ends you're exhausted and as sweaty as they are. Also Far Away Eyes is fabulous in this show, on the album Mick doesn't take the song seriously here they do a version that would do Nashville or Bakersfield proud complete with a fiddle and some lap steel guitar from Ron wood. This is it the Rolling Stones in their last hurrah, what came next was the massive Tattoo You tour which went around the world as opposed to the 27 American shows they do on this tour and a handful of European gigs. The stadium shows of the Tattoo You tour are pretty awful or just down right dull, some of the arena shows are okay but just okay. Here July 18 1978 in Teaxs the Rolling Stones are simply amazing not just okay.

After 33 years the Stones have finally released this show, recorded July 18 at the Will Rogers Auditorium in Fort Worth Texas, in front of about 3,000 fans. The video and cd are the only official recordings from this landmark mini-tour, a stripped down, just rock n' roll summer assault on the U.S.A., showcasing the new material from the band's latest release, Some Girls. Featured are 7 of the 10 Some Girls tracks, including first live-versions of Miss You, Respectable, Whip Comes Down, Shattered, Beast of Burden, Imagination and Far Away Eyes, all of which would go on to be staples of future tours. The Stones were at the height of their popularity in 1978; the tour included several giant stadium shows, notably at JFK stadium, Philadelphia, Soldier's Field, Chicago, Rich Stadium, Buffalo and Anaheim Stadium. The Fort Worth show was one of a handful of smaller-venue performances, and features the Stones at their most vital. I'd say this is the best Stones live-video available, and that's saying a lot. The band is pumped and at their energetic best. Keith Richard's guitar playing is simply ferocious at times, most notably on the show closer, Jumpin Jack Flash. Richards, Mick Jagger and Ron Wood are in constant motion, while Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts stoically hold down the rhythm section. Ian McLagen on keyboards and Ian Stewart on piano are present but practically invisible and generally drowned out by the Richards/Wood frantic twin-guitar assault. Richards and Wood trade licks as if they were telepathically connected, they are that good. Jagger has never been better, both vocally and swagger-wise. He's in full strut, bum-wiggling,leering sass-mode, with what looks like two rolls of toilet paper stuffed down the crotch of his pants. All the classic Jagger moves are on display.Read more ›

This DVD of a Rolling Stones concert in Texas during the Stones' 1978 Some Girls tour is excellent.

This is the Rolling Stones in their prime. The camera work and editing are good; the sound is very good. This is a Stones DVD that is well worth adding to your collection.

This version with the DVD and a CD of the concert is the one to buy. For any music marketing types reading this, DVD/CD combinations are the way to market concert DVDs, provided the price is right. I think most of us would pay an extra few dollars for a CD/DVD combo over just a DVD.

I love these Rolling Stone releases. First we get Ladies and Gentlmen... Now this. Looks great, amazing audio (well for 1978). This has a great set list. Lots of songs you will not have live versions of. Looks like it's in a mid size venue. This one has Ronnie Wood on guitar not Mick Taylor. They were also touring a great album "Some Girls". I really hope there are more to come. Eagle Rock ("vision" they use both names) has really set a standard for classic rock releases on Blu ray and DVD. I really have nothing negative to say about this release. But I do have a warning. If you are a casual stones fan and like just their hits get "At The Max" which is almost a greatest hits concert. But if your a fan of the Stones and like their 70's output you will love it. This lived totally up to my expiations. It also has bonus performances from Saturday Night Live. This thing rocks. 10/10

This is one of the best live shows by the Rolling Stones that I have ever seen!!! There are some shots of Keith in this that will blow you away in particular when he messes up his hair in Far Away Eyes. One of the coolest and coolest looking human beings the world will ever know, he looks as he should with a guitar in his hands. I absolutely love this concert film and it exceeded my expectations!! Mick looks great here too, and he's flaunting the sexuality in this one. Sex, drugs, and rock and roll: this is why you should buy Some Girls Live In Texas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! One of the greatest concert films I have ever seen!!!!!!!!!!
