A Goldmine Of Recorded Live Concerts

Check this out!


"Bill Graham launched the rock and roll concert industry in the mid-1960s. From then until his sudden death in a 1991 helicopter crash, he and his company Bill Graham Presents promoted more than 35,000 concerts worldwide at venues including the Fillmore West and Winterland in San Francisco and the legendary Fillmore East in New York City. Graham’s first venue, the ground-breaking Fillmore Auditorium, was home to many of rock’s greatest performers; Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, The Doors, The Grateful Dead, Otis Redding and Jefferson Airplane.

Graham also taped thousands of live performances and stored the tapes in the basement of the BGP headquarters. No one is quite sure what he intended to do with these recordings; in any case these tapes and the concerts they captured lay dormant until the Bill Graham archive was acquired by Wolfgang’s Vault (Bill Graham’s given first name was Wolfgang) in 2003.

We’re now presenting these concerts in their entirety in the Concert Vault. The Concert Vault broadcasts unaltered, live-performance music from many of the greatest bands of the last 40 years. Listeners hear what the band played that night; nothing more, nothing less and nothing short of incredible."
