Wow, what a kick ass find by Michael G! If you are a big time music lover like myself, or have had any experience in the music industry then you have heard of Bill Graham, arguably the best concert promoter to ever walk the planet. This site, Wolfgangs Vault is a dedication to all of Bill’s concerts and is not only chock full of all of the “swag” that went along with the times, t-shirts, posters, etc, but has crystal clear streaming recordings of some of the best live music ever. I am listening to the featured show on the home page, Black Sabbath, 8/5/75 from Convention Hall in Asbury Park, NJ, its so clean. This site is a gem. There are currently 310 live shows available for free download.
Bill was a personal inspiration for myself back when I was in the concert promoting game. I remember reading with vigor, “Bill Graham Presents,” the story of Bill’s life which ended tragically in a helicopter crash in 1991. What an individual and what a story. Bill was the cornerstone of rock and roll from the 60′s and beyond, building up acts such as the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, and Janis Joplin among just a few. He opened the famous music venues, Fillmore East & West, and went on to produce mega events like the first Live Aid along with Bob Geldof. Bill was a class act, check out this site which covers so many aspects of his works.
