Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Two days ago, ye olde in-house former music editor, hipped me to a pretty amazing little gem he'd come across on the Internet while searching mp3 blogs (no doubt for more Kadane Brothers rarities).

It's a collection of three rare Rolling Stones blues takes--apparently from a session held right here in our fair city...you know, since the post calls them The Dallas Rehearsals and all.

My only concern is if the takes are actually from here. We know that the Stones were in town on that date--they played a gig in Forth Worth on that same date as part of the Stones Touring Party tour (and you can download a torrent of that show's live set here)--but we'd never heard of any Dallas connection to that date until now.

Either way, they're some nice takes (if a little lacking on the sound quality), and I highly recommend the listen. --Pete Freedman

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
