For Your Long Weekend Listening Pleasure: The Stones Bring Some Girls to Will Rogers in '78
And when I say "this offering," I refer specifically to the four-disc Handsome Girls set that includes the entirety of the Will Rogers Auditorium concert from that summer. Slimmed-down versions exist as well, as this is one of the more popular, ahem, unofficial Stones releases in the history of the unofficial release. (Sound's superior, broadcast-quality; there's even video.)
Historians can't decide -- the Some Girls tour has often been dismissed as falling-down professional, the sturdy work of men who saw concerts as penalty kills between parties. The set list hardly changed from town to town, but this much is certain: That's one hell of a version of "Starfucker," performed as originally written. And the rest -- from "Honky Tonk Women" to Chuck Berry's "Sweet Little Sixteen" to Some Girls tracks that fill much of the set list -- ain't bad neither. Happy Thanksgiving, Friends. Fill up.
