Storyline

The Roling Stones 1978 tour of the USA in support of that year's "Some Girls" album is considered by some fans to be one of their very best. The tour took a back to basics' approach, with the band and their music very much at the forefront and little or mo staging. This is undeniably the Rolling Stones at the peak of their form.

Great Stones performance
21 November 2014 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Great performance by the Rolling Stones.

Recorded during the Fort Worth concert of the Rolling Stones' 1978 Some Girls tour, this captures the Stones at the rawest and most natural. Some Girls was their last great album, and soon after this they moved onto stadium rock and light shows.

Also has a stripped-down feel to it. No horn section, no backing singers, very few additional musicians.

On the negative side, they do tend to concentrate largely on the songs from Some Girls. Yes, the latest album will always have a disproportionately-higher-than-deserved weight in the set list - the aim of touring is to market your latest album - but it seems too much in this case. We end up with one song from Let it Bleed (Love in Vain), three from Exile on Main St (Happy, Tumbling Dice, All Down the Line), one from Sticky Fingers (Brown Sugar) and none from Beggars Banquet, plus Jumpin' Jack Flash and Honky Tonk Women.

This said, the performances of even the lesser songs from Some Girls give the songs new life. Some of the songs on Some Girls are quite forgettable, yet here they sparkle. Girl with the Faraway Eyes is the highlight, revealing the fun, tongue-in-cheek side of the Stones.

Great concert, great recording of it.
