The Rolling Stones' 1978 masterpiece is ranked by the band as one of their favourites, and it represents perhaps their crowning glory amongst all of their glittering back catalogue, remaining their biggest selling album.
Easily their most diverse collection of songs, SOME GIRLS saw the band move effortlessly between disco, country and rock across tracks such as floor-filler 'Miss You', beautiful ballad 'Beast Of Burden' and the rock and roll gem 'Shattered.'
The new remastered and expanded edition of the album has added an entire CD of bonus material which was recently found and, in some cases, finished by the band. These new tracks are a fascinating insight into the extraordinary streak of creativity that the band were experiencing in 1978, with many of these songs unfortunate not to make the final cut on Some Girls.
Amongst many other eagerly-awaited extras, the Super-Deluxe edition of Some Girls will include a stunning, previously unseen Helmut Newton photo session from 1978, an essay by esteemed author and journalist Anthony DeCurtis putting the album in its cultural context, and a 7” single of Beast Of Burden/When The Whip Comes Down in its banned sleeve.
Here's the tracklist:
2.When The Whip Comes Down
3.Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me)
6.Far Away Eyes
8.Before They Make Me Run
9.Beast of Burden
3.Do You Think I Really Care
4.When You’re Gone
5.No Spare Parts
6.Don’t Be A Stranger
7.We Had It All
9.I Love You Too Much
10.Keep Up Blues
11.You Win Again

The Rolling Stones 1978 tour of the USA in support of that year's Some Girls album is considered by fans to be one amongst the band's best.
By the time the band arrived in Texas in mid-July 1978 the album had hit the No.1 spot on the US charts. The tour took a "back to basics" approach, with the band and their music very much at the forefront and little or no elaborate staging.
Filmed at the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth, Texas, on 18 July 1978, this concert is typical of the tour with the Rolling Stones delivering a raw, energetic performance in front of a crowd who are clearly loving the show. Many of the tracks from Some Girls are included in the live set with a sprinkling of Stones classics from earlier albums.
Originally shot on 16mm film, the footage has been carefully restored and the sound remixed and remastered by Bob Clearmountain from the original multitrack tapes. This is undeniably the Rolling Stones at their best.
Bonus Features include a newly filmed interview with Mick Jagger.
