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.

A great capsule of the talent and stage presence of the Stones
I've always enjoyed the Stones records, but I had no idea how great they were live. And I'm not just talking about how much their personalities shine, and the lengths to which they go to entertain their fans. This show is an excellent display of the musicianship of the band. Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood are absolutely incredible. Many of the songs that hover around the 4-minute mark on their records are extended into 7+ minute jams in these performances. The rendition of Beast of Burden really sticks out for me it's emotional and workmanlike at the same time, with no theatrics, just a bunch of guys at the absolute top of their game. And one could certainly argue that this was indeed the last high point of their music career.
