I know that I’m late in getting this posted, as most everyone else discovered this little gem last week, but I felt it was important to give it the full treatment myself to give it a proper mention.

Bill Graham was the grandfather of all concert promoters. Him and his company put on over 35,000 () concerts back in the day and he’s stored all the tapes in one master archive that is owned by Wolfgang’s Vault. On their site, they’ve created one very cool radio station called Vault Radio that pumps out taped during Bill Graham’s tenure…

What might be something you hear on Vault Radio? Right , it’s doing an insanely fast version of “Respect” at the West in 1971. Gems.

Here is a sample from their “recently played” from a week back when I caught this link.
