By the end of their first US tour in years, The Rolling Stones wanted to
go out with a band with several big festivals. A week before their
Altamont show, they headlined the First Annual Palm Beach International
Music & Arts Festival. Unlike Altamont, this festival went off without a
hitch and was quite memorable even to the point of being dubbed �Woodstock
The entire Stones set has been pressed previously on One Day Before
Altamont (Shaved Disc TSD 024), Palm Beach 1969 (Idol Mind IMP-CD-042) and
Miami Pop Festival (Vinyl Gang VGP-117). Palm Beach 1969 Off Reels is
Idol Mind�s second release of this tape. Just like their set with George
Harrison�s 1974 Nassau Coliseum shows, this is a marked improvement over
past releases. It is expanded to contain several numbers from the other
acts and also sounds as if it comes from the master reels.
Unfortunately the speed problems are also present. They can sometimes be
heard on the first disc during the other act�s songs. On the second act
they begin while the Stones are playing �Sympathy For The Devil� and
escalate from there. By the middle of the Stones� set they become most
noticeable and quite unbearable.
It is a shame because it is a great vintage Stones performance and
certainly deserves a better recording. Hopefully someday a soundboard
would surface. Or at least a better audience tape. Until then, the
problems needs to be endured by anyone who wants to experience a magic
Palm Beach 1969 Off Reels comes packaged in a special �duo� jewel case
with obi strip. The jewel case is an interesting variation. But
ultimately this is a bit of a disappointment to those who were hoping for
a definitive recording.

The original Idol
Mind label is said to have been a precursor to the old VGP label. The
current Idol Mind label is mostly famous for reissuing classic Stones�
shows with digital/computer remastering. Can�t say I�ve picked up very
many of the new Idol�s releases. This title is a perfect case in point.
Other than the first disc of other artists� performances, this release
offers nothing new. Unfortunately the tape speed fluctuations remain,
making this release only for those with extra money to burn. I was so
close to buying this title, but sadly it�s just another Idol Mind release
to skip for the Rolling Stones enthusiasts who�ve had this material in
similar quality for years.

review is spot on GS which is too bad as the clarity of the tape make it
one of the better sounding shows of the tour if not for the speed
problems�Idol Mind has released some winners though as I think their
Altamont set is excellent�
