The Rolling Stones: Some Girls Live in Texas 1978

 (1978)

The Rolling Stones: Some Girls Live in Texas 1978 Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

The Rolling Stones 1978 tour in support of that year's Some Girls album is considered by fans to be one of their very best. The tour took a back to basics approach, with the band and their music at the forefront and little or no elaborate staging. This concert is typical of the tour with the Rolling Stones delivering a raw performance of many of the tracks from Some Girls. Originally shot on 16mm film, the footage has been restored and the sound remixed and remastered by Bob Clearmountain from the original multitrack tapes.

For more about The Rolling Stones: Some Girls Live in Texas 1978 and the The Rolling Stones: Some Girls Live in Texas 1978 Blu-ray release, see the The Rolling Stones: Some Girls Live in Texas 1978 Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

The Rolling Stones: Some Girls Live in Texas 1978 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.67:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080i transfer, The Rolling Stones: Some Girls Live in Texas 1978 arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Eagle Rock Entertainment.

Recently remastered at Pinewood Studios, this legendary concert film looks good in high-definition. The screencaptures we have posted with our review, however, are quite misleading, as they do not convey how pleasing image depth and clarity are. Despite the not so impressive stage lighting, which actually often creates the illusion that the high-definition transfer is rife with artifacts, color reproduction is also convincing (some of the reds, however, are quite overwhelming). Additionally, some light noise corrections have been performed, but detail has not been compromised. On the contrary, many of the close-ups look surprisingly crisp and vibrant (see screencapture #4). This makes me wonder how the film was scanned and remastered, as I really could not see any traces of the motion-judder which most 1080i transfers convey. In other words, I must speculate that the film could have looked even better with a progressive transfer. Still, the quality of the presentation is very good, and I cannot imagine fans of the Rolling Stones not being enormously pleased with it. (Note: This is a Region-Free Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location).

Scanning and digital restoration team: John Mann, Philip Franchi, Nick Melville
Data encoding and transfers: Thom Berryman, James Corless
Audio mix: Bob Clearmountain at Mix This!
Audio mastering: Mazen Murad at Metropolis Studios.


The Rolling Stones: Some Girls Live in Texas 1978 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There are three audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1, English LPCM 2.0, and English Dolby Digital 5.1. For the record, Eagle Rock Entertainment have provided optional English, German, Spanish, and French subtitles for the interviews offered in supplemental features section of the disc.

I think that quite a few people will be surprised with the wide range of nuanced dynamics the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track boasts. This is not to imply that there is strong surround activity that dramatically alters the depth and even fluidity of the sound, but its richness and overall strength as well as the excellent separation between the music and the vocals are indeed somewhat unusual. The crowd noise is prominent, particularly during some of the band's edgier tracks, but never distracting. Lastly, the high-frequencies on the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track seem slightly better than those of the LPCM 2.0 track; they are not 'thin' or 'weak' as they occasionally feel on the LPCM 2.0 track. For the record, there are no sync issues or audio dropouts to report in this review.
