Well, it seems we've been
"discovered" in a stack of old tapes left behind by Bill
Graham. Wolfgang's Vault had for several years been
offering about 5 or 6 posters from late 60's era
concerts in San
Francisco that we had performed at (a handful of the
actual 100's of gigs we did). Then, in
September 2006, they featured a cut from the band on
their website and then added a full live recording of one
of our concert performances at the old Family Dog Ballroom
(Magic at the Edge of the Western World) on the Great
Highway. It has 11 songs that were recorded on March 22nd
The Vault wanted to make downloads
of the concert available for sale, but needed a signed
contract to do that. That prompted the band
members to reconnect (after 37 years) and agree to sign.
We did. And, in the discussions that followed, we
discovered 9 other old tapes that had been stored in
garages and basements. The Vault restored a
couple of the tapes and converted them to
digital format. There was one other live concert
(5 songs from the same venue the night before) and both
recordings are now (as of
12/19/2008) available for download at Wolfgang's Vault.
Here's link to the Wolfgang's Concert Vault
page with the recording... (note: requires you to login
to the site... do it, it's worth it) And, don't forget
to check out the posters too...
