THE ROLLING STONES CAUGHT LIVE AT THE TOP OF THEIR GAME

Continuing their partnership with the greatest rock ‘n’ roll band in the world, Eagle Rock Entertainment have announced the DVD and Blu-Ray release of The Rolling StonesSome Girls Live in Texas 1978’. Available for the first time ever from 21 November ‘Some Girls Live in Texas 1978’ features Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Ronnie Wood and Bill Wyman live in concert during the 1978 US tour which followed the release of their groundbreaking album Some Girls.

‘Some Girls Live in Texas 1978’ comes hot on the heels of the huge success of 2010’s ‘Stones in Exile’ and ‘Ladies & Gentlemen’ and marks the next stage in the Eagle Vision / Rolling Stones enterprise. ‘Some Girls Live in Texas 1978’ will be available on four different formats: DVD, Blu-Ray plus special edition DVD + CD and Blu-Ray + CD digipack presentations including a reproduction tour programme. Bonus features on all formats are: a spoof interview featuring Dan Ackroyd and Mick Jagger and live performances of ‘Shattered’, ‘Beast of Burden’ and ‘Respectable’ from Saturday Night Live in October 1978, excerpts from ABC 20/20 Special introduced by Hugh Downs and featuring interviews by Geraldo Rivera with Mick, Keith, Ronnie and Bill during rehearsals for the tour, originally broadcast in June 1978, and a new interview with Mick Jagger. Worldwide theatrical distribution deals including the UK will be announced soon.

Capturing The Rolling Stones at their live best, and fully restored to the highest level of picture and sound quality, ‘Some Girls Live in Texas 1978’ was filmed at the Will Rogers Memorial Centre in Forth Worth, Texas on 18 July 1978 on what many fans consider to be one of the band’s greatest tours. This was due to the band’s ‘back to basics’ approach both musically and visually, as the shows were stripped back compared to previous tours, harnessing the new punk rock attitude of the late 70s.

Showcasing many songs from the Some Girls album, celebrated for being the Rolling Stones’ most direct and diverse collection of music, and which by the time the band arrived in Texas, had gone to the top of the US charts, this concert demonstrates the sheer force and raw energy of The Rolling Stones live on stage.

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 Woman’, ‘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.

“Eagle is delighted to once again be working with the Rolling Stones on another landmark release highlighting an outstanding performance from the world’s greatest rock ‘n’ roll band.”
