The Rolling Stones: Some Girls Live in Texas (1978) Blu-ray AVC 1080i DTS HDMA 5.1

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.

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).
