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 Concert from The Stones

The Rolling Stones: Some Girls - Live in Texas '78 (2011)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Yet another excellent release from The Rolling Stones, this one here recorded at the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth, TX on July 18th, 1978. This was the first show I've watched from this tour and the first thing that struck me is how laid back the stage is. There are a few items located on it but for the most part it's just the band out there delivering great performances in a very memorable show. The setlist includes numbers like Let It Rock, All Down the Line, Honky Tonk Women, When the Whip Comes Down, Beast of Burden, Just My Imagination, Love in Vain, Tumbling Dice, Brown Sugar, Jumpin Jack Flash among a few others. I really don't see how any Stones fan could be disappointed with the show here because it really starts off incredibly strong and never slows down. Mick is certainly in fine form as he dances around the stage and there's no question that both Richards and Wood are right on the mark. A lot of times when you watch these concerts you notice that the rarer songs are usually the ones that really stick out but that's not the case here. The intro to Honky Tonk Women was terrific and I think this here was the highlight in regards to the guitar playing. The overall highlight of the concert was a downright fabulous version of Beasts of Burden. Just the way the music is played and the way Mick delivered the lines was something special and it really brought the song to life. My only complaint and this might just have been an issue with my system is that the vocals were far too back in the sound mix. There were times where the guitars were just way too loud and you couldn't really get a clear sound from Mick. Still, the concert itself is full of great energy and some wonderful music.
