Fanfare here goes to Lee Zimmerman for tracking down some fascinating details of the 1969 Palm Beach Pop Festival. It was a bit like Woodstock, and the Rolling Stones performed, but no one's talking about it now. Documentarian Ken Davidoff (oldrockphoto.com) and his co-producer on the project, Jack Connell, are looking to start the discussion with some amazing archival photos from the event, like the one at the left (watermarked, obv) and more below.
For those of you paying attention at home, County Grind also slowly unveiled ten of the finest recordings of varying lengths and bit rates that South
Florida offered in 2010 over the past week or so. Now, we weren't going
to let only the online community get a hold of our hotly contested
opinions -- including thoughts from Alex Rendon, Arielle Castillo,
Monica Uszerowicz, Erica K. Landau, and Jose Flores -- remain unchained.
