Wolfgang’s Vault-an archivist’s dream

I was wandering around on the information high and stumbled across an AMAZING music archive site called Wolfgang’s Vault. It is based on the collection of Wolodia “Wolfgang” Grajonca, who is better known as Bill Graham.

From Wikipedia:

Wolfgang’s Vault is a private music-focused company established in 2003 dedicated to the restoration and archiving of live concert recordings in audio and video format and the sale of music memorabilia. It began with the collection of the late promoter Bill Graham, and added multiple other music and memorabilia archives. It was called “the most important collection of rock memorabilia and recordings ever assembled in one business,” by The Wall Street Journal, Dec 13, 2005.

It is a subscription site, and I don’t know much about it. I’m not even sure how I got to it (Maybe Largehearted Boy, but I haven’t been able to trace back to an original post or comment, so maybe not) but I’m glad I did. It’s live music, recordings of concerts that are (some of them) legendary, from when rock and roll really was the king.
