The original soundtrack for the concert film with the same title, the album was recorded on 18th July 1978 at the Will Rogers Auditorium.
The tour combined small theatres and huge stadiums. The Fort Worth show had capacity for just 3000. The 1978 tour began in Lakeland, Florida on the 10th June, by the time they arrived in Texas the Stones had played 19 shows. Billboard magazine said of the tour, “No flash, no gimmicks, just rock ‘n’ roll.” The band included Mick, Keith, Charlie, Ronnie, Bill and Ian Stewart on piano (the day of the Fort Worth show was his 40th birthday) as well as Ronnie’s former Faces bandmate keyboard player (and now Texas resident) Ian ‘Mac’ McLagan.
Remastered in 2011 by Bob Clearmountain, the album is currently only available when bought with the DVD of the concert.
