Ladies & Gentleman. Sourced from the band's American Tour 1972 tour, taped over a number of nights in Dallas and Houston, this concert finds the Stones in their Exile On Main Street prime. Unlike the other two releases covered here, the DVD and Blu-ray releases of Ladies & Gentleman did not include a CD (even the multi-disc deluxe set). Guitarist Mick Taylor is in fine form. Exile tunes highlight the show: "Rip This Joint," "Happy," "Sweet Virginia," "All Down the Line."
Some Girls: Live In Texas '78. Recorded Fort Worth, Texas, July 18, 1978, the Stones were touring in support of Some Girls. This CD was included as part of a previous DVD and Blu-ray package, but now it's available separately. The then-new material sounds great, including "When the Whip Comes Down," "Respectable," "Shattered," and "Beast of Burden." The stripped-down line-up doesn't feature any horns, giving the show a more spartan sound.
Muddy Waters and The Rolling Stones, Live at the Checkerboard Lounge. Recorded in 1981, this small club show isn't really The Rolling Stones. It's a Muddy Waters show that the Stones attended. Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ron Wood, and Ian Stewart make their way to the stage, sitting in on many numbers with Waters' band. Buddy Guy, Junior Wells, and Lefty Dizz play too. It's a blues-lover's dream, with jam-oriented renditions of "Mannish Boy," "Got My Mojo Working," and "Hoochie Coochie Man," and more. This one was also previously found in a DVD package—so if you have, that you have this.
Each release is packaged in a standard jewel case. The booklet inserts are basically a simplified version of the booklets found in the previous Blu-ray/DVD editions, offering basic background information and credits about each show.
