Good Music Online - Bill Graham Tapes

Tony Alva over at his blog -- HERE has great content, and passion.

He has tons of great insight and comment, and I really enjoy his writings. He is a fantastic writer.

This morning I awoke early to find his latest post on "Vault Radio" -- and I quickly took his advice and launched the player from the Homepage of Vault's site.

Bam -- GREAT MUSIC from the Fillmore East - specifically "Paul Butterfield Blues Band", 10-14-66....

These are Bill Grahams LIVE / Reel to Reel recordings....

Vault Radio is HERE.

About Vault Radio

"Bill Graham and his concert promotion company, Bill Graham Presents, produced more than 35,000 concerts all over the world. His first venue, the legendary Fillmore Auditorium, was home to many of rock's greatest performers - Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, The Doors, The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye, Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Prince - and the list goes on and on.

Graham taped thousands of live performances and stored the tapes in the basement of the BGP headquarters. 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.

Vault Radio is now playing selected tracks from these concerts in an FM-quality, 128K digital radio stream. Songs will be added to and removed from the radio show on a regular basis. We will be broadcasting unaltered live performance music from many of the greatest bands of the last 40 years. The music you hear on Vault Radio has not been sweetened or polished. You'll be listening to what the band played that night - nothing more, nothing less.

This is the real thing and we hope you enjoy it. If you like the music or would like us to add other bands to the playlist, let us know through Feedback."

Thanks Tony for the tip.
