I haven't seen this footage before, it was great to see these guys at the top of their game when they were young. Wow. Even the swedish girls next to me whoop-whooped at the screen after every song ended. Incredible!

A great tour

Did not see this Dallas show but saw them in Cleveland about a month earlier. Cleveland was an outdoor daytime concert. Hotter than hell and Mick was in a ****** mood. Played the basic set list but offered no encore. Was good to see this Fort Worth show was much much better and showed the Stones at their best. I have long had the bootleg audio from this show and loved it. Great to "see" the the action associated with the incredible sound. All the guys were "on" for this show. The film itself was of good quality - much better than the last release in 2010 (L&G The Rolling Stones, 1972). This is for adults only as Mick was quite randy and of course they did Star Star (AKA Star F***er)

The Rolling Stones Live in Texas 1978

If you have even a passing interest in The Rolling Stones, this movie is not to be missed! This is the world's greatest rock and roll band at what they do best; perform live. On a stage bare of any theatrics, the group powered through a well chosen set list, combining both classics, such as Jumpin' Jack Flash, Tumbling Dice, Honky Tonk Women, while seamlessly blending in eight of the ten tracks from the then recently released Some Girls album. Of all the songs, my personal favorite was "Faraway Eyes". Ron Wood displayed his mastery of the pedal guitar on this "country" tune. While some may say that subsequent tours have become corporate events, on this steamy July night in Fort Worth the Stones were purely about the music. They were in their element and as they still do to this day, defined what rock and roll is all about.

The "Some Girls" Concert from 1978 was a wonderful display of some of the greatest songs from the "greatest rock and roll band" in the world. The Stones seemed very workmanlike as they progressed from song to song...quite the level of intensity that makes them the professionals that they are.The Stones versions of "Far Away Eyes" and "Just My Imagination" blew me away...also "Love In Vain"...wow!! The Mick Jagger interview before the concert was a great set up, providing insight for the viewer before show. Any Stones fan or I should say any rock and roll fan should see this wonderful concert.

Some Girls

It was terrific, way more than I expected--great performers at the top of their game. Not just a curiosity, but a full-blown Stones set unencumbered by the giant stages, blow-up dolls and assorted spectacles we've become used to in recent decades. This is a stripped-down, in-yer-face rock'n'roll blowout in a smallish theater devoid of everything but the music, delivered here with panache and energy. Get this DVD and turn it UP! Thanks to our home-town production heroes who jumped in at the last minute--literally--and captured this seething little gem. NB: Having said this, I will never use Fandango again for any reason. Their online ticketing apparatus is clumsy and inaccurate, with a very unfriendly telephone customer assistance program to match. Mentioning this to the theater attendants on duty I found that my concerns were confirmed by them as well. Cinemark deserves a better partner; it reminded me of the old Ticketmaster.
