‘THE BRUSSELS AFFAIR’ LIVE BOOTLEG RELEASED AS A DIGITAL DOWNLOAD FOR FIRST TIME EVER
LONDON, Nov. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — The world’s greatest rock ‘n’ roll band, The Rolling Stones and Bravado, the world’s leading merchandising company, have today launched the band’s first ever digital archive – The Rolling Stones Archive – and have marked the occasion with a digital release of ‘The Brussels Affair’. After years in circulation as a bootleg, this spectacular live show from the European leg of the 1973 Goat’s Head Soup tour is now available to music fans all over the world (excluding the U.S.) as an official download from www.stonesarchive.com.
The website will give fans access to special videos and liner notes, including copies of the original Brussels set lists, as well as rare photographs and a sound player that allows listeners to sample audio clips from every song in the set.
Exclusive daily deals will give Stones fans the inside track on exclusive merchandise as well as rare access to memorabilia, limited photos and lithographs and deluxe box sets. Each item included in The Rolling Stones Archive will be unique and highly limited, making this an incredible opportunity to own a part of The Rolling Stones’ history.
Long hailed by die hard Rolling Stones fans as one of the band’s greatest live performances, the Brussels 1973 show has been a mainstay in the underground music world for years.
Brussels was the penultimate stop on a European tour that the Rolling Stones embarked on in the fall of 1973 to promote their No. 1 album Goats Head Soup. The 21-city tour was met by ecstatic crowds, causing the band to frequently perform two shows a day, as they did at the Forest National arena in Brussels. Despite the frenetic pace, the road trip yielded some of the band’s greatest music on stage.
The Brussels gigs capture that greatness. From the opening chords of ‘Brown Sugar’ to the closing crescendo of ‘Street Fighting Man’, the Rolling Stones were firing on all cylinders: Keith Richards and Charlie Watts churning out a locomotive-like rhythm section, Bill Wyman on fine form with his trademark solid basslines, guitarist Mick Taylor delivering a barrage of blistering leads, with Mick Jagger growling and grinding in his blue-sequined best.
This new digital release, pulled exclusively from the two Brussels gigs, was taken from the original multi-track masters recorded by Andy Johns on the Rolling Stones Mobile unit. Longtime Stones collaborator Bob Clearmountain applied the final mix.

Eagle Rock Entertainment Presents The Rolling Stones Caught Live at the Top of Their Game “Some Girls Live In Texas 1978″
Live Concert Out On DVD and Blu-ray November 21
NEW YORK, Sept. 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Continuing their partnership with the greatest rock ‘n’ roll band in the world, Eagle Rock Entertainment have announced the DVD and Blu-ray release of The Rolling Stones Some Girls Live in Texas 1978 . Available for the first time ever on November 21 , Some Girls Live in Texas 1978 features Mick Jagger , Keith Richards , Charlie Watts , Ronnie Wood and Bill Wyman live in concert during the 1978 US tour which followed the release of their groundbreaking album Some Girls. [Pre-book order date October 28, MSRP $14.98 for DVD, $19.98 for Blu-ray, and TBA for DVD/CD and Blu-ray/CD].
Some Girls Live in Texas 1978 comes hot on the heels of the huge success of 2010′s Stones in Exile and Ladies & Gentlemen and marks the next stage in the Eagle Vision / Rolling Stones enterprise. Some Girls Live in Texas 1978 will be available on four different formats: DVD, Blu-ray, plus special edition DVD + CD and Blu-ray + CD digipack presentations including a reproduction tour program. Bonus features on all formats will include a new interview with Mick Jagger . Worldwide theatrical distribution deals including the US (in October 2011) will be announced soon.
Capturing The Rolling Stones at their live best, and fully restored to the highest level of picture and sound quality, Some Girls Live in Texas 1978 was filmed at the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Forth Worth, Texas on July 18, 1978 on what many fans consider to be one of the band’s greatest tours. This was due to the band’s ‘back to basics’ approach both musically and visually, as the shows were stripped back compared to previous tours, harnessing the new punk rock attitude of the late 70s.
Showcasing many songs from the Some Girls album, celebrated for being the Rolling Stones’ most direct and diverse collection of music, and which by the time the band arrived in Texas, had gone to the top of the US charts, this concert demonstrates the sheer force and raw energy of The Rolling Stones live on stage.
Some Girls songs like “ Miss You,” “Respectable,” “Beast Of Burden,” “When The Whip Comes Down,” and “Shattered,” weave into a set list which also includes “All Down The Line,” “Honky Tonk Women,” “Tumbling Dice,” ”Jumpin’ Jack Flash ,” “Happy,” and “Brown Sugar.”
Originally shot on 16mm film, the concert footage has been carefully restored with the sound remixed and remastered by Bob Clearmountain from the original multi track tapes.
“Eagle is delighted to once again be working with the Rolling Stones on another landmark release highlighting an outstanding performance from the world’s greatest rock ‘n’ roll band.”
