Two Classic Rolling Stones Concerts to Be Released on Vinyl

Rolling Stones
Eagle Rock Entertainment

Two weeks ago, we learned that the Rolling Stones were accepting pre-orders for highly collectible, limited-edition vinyl sets of ‘The Brussels Affair,’ a much-bootlegged show from 1973. Now the band will release two-LP/DVD/CD versions of two other concerts on Sept. 11: ‘Some Girls: Live in Texas β€˜78′ and ‘Live At The Checkerboard Lounge Chicago 1981.’ Both have been released on DVD and CD within the past year.

‘Some Girls: Live in Texas ’78′ features the Stones rejuvenated following the release of their classic album ‘Some Girls’ a month before. As Ron Wood described it years later, β€œIt was straight-ahead garage rock, hardly a stage-set, no smoke, no big lights, like the Stones going punk.”

Recorded at Buddy Guy’s former blues club on the South Side of Chicago, ‘Live At The Checkerboard Lounge Chicago 1981′ was a Muddy Waters gig where the Stones, who were in town, wound up sitting in with their friend and hero. Guy and Junior Wells also join in on guitar and harmonica. Although he was still in excellent voice, Waters would pass away about 18 months later.

Unlike ‘The Brussels Affair,’ these sets don’t contain any high-priced add-ons. You’ll get the 180-gram vinyl in a three-panel gatefold sleeve, along with the DVD and the CD. The sets list for $39.98 each.
