I'm sure most of you hard core Stones fans have this gem of a Bootleg from the late 60's from Swingin' Pig with Brian Jones. "So Much Younger Than Today" recorded off the radio in Honolulu on 7/28/66. 

 Broadcast live by Hawaiian radio (K-POI) :: 20 Bit Master Recording.
A wonderful soundboard recording from the last show of the Stones early summer tour, with the original Rolling Stone-the multi-talented Brian Jones in the band. Professionally recorded and mixed at the International Sports Center, Honolulu, Hawaii.  Recorded for a summer radio broadcast by KPOI (Honolulu) radio, this accounts for the fine sound quality. There are not too many early (pre-1969) Stones shows around in excellent sound fidelity, but this one is great. Performance wise, outstanding albeit a short show, as was the custom then. The band is very tight and rehearsed from two months of solid touring. Vocals, including backing vocals from Keith Richard and Brian Jones are very clear. To be sure, there is screaming on the numbers, but it isn't overpowering or too distracting. As noted, this was the last show of the tour, and also the very last American show with Brian Jones. The Stones did a 27-show European tour in late March-April 1967, then stopped touring until 1969. Brian Jones (for those who are too young to remember...) was fired by the Stones in June 1969, and died tragically in early July 1969 under mysterious circumstances. It was Brian Jones who formed the Rolling Stones with Mick Jagger and Keith Richards in 1961, with Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts joining later. A great early Stones show...Highly recommended for Stones fans...fantastic to hear it 43-years later. RIP Brian.<-(Info taken from
