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 Stones'Some 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 will include 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 Women', '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.
This is available on DVD, DVD+CD, Blu-Ray, Blu-Ray+CD

Love and hope and sex and dreams
Are still surviving on the street
Look at me, Im in tatters!
Im a shattered
Friends are so alarming
My lovers never charming
Lifes just a cocktail party on the street
People dressed in plastic bags
Some kind of fashion
Laughter, joy, and loneliness and sex and sex and sex and sex
Look at me, Im in tatters
Im a shattered
All this chitter-chatter, chitter-chatter, chitter-chatter bout
Shmatta, shmatta, shmatta -- I can't give it away on 7th avenue
This towns been wearing tatters (shattered, shattered)
Work and work for love and sex
Aint you hungry for success, success, success, success
Does it matter? (shattered) does it matter?
Ahhh, look at me, Im a shattered

Look at me- Im a shattered, yeah
Pride and joy and greed and sex

Pride and joy and dirty dreams and still surviving on the street
And look at me, Im in tatters, yeah
Ive been battered, what does it matter
Does it matter, uh-huh
Does it matter, uh-huh, Im a shattered
Don't you know the crime rate is going up, up, up, up, up
To live in this town you must be tough, tough, tough, tough, tough!
You got rats on the west side
Bed bugs uptown

My brains been battered, splattered all over manhattan
Uh-huh, this towns full of money grabbers

Flatter, flatter, flatter, flatter, flatter, flatter, flatter
Pile it up, pile it high on the platter
