I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Wolfgang's Vault Weekly Feature

This weeks deals on Wolfgang's Vault

Deal of the Week: Jerry Garcia on Broadway Poster Deal of the Week: Jerry Garcia on Broadway Poster
Impresario Bill Graham played host to Jerry Garcia's legendary two-week run at New York's Lunt-Fontanne Theatre, donning the audience with top hats with which to tip Garcia on opening night and serving egg creams (a Jerry fave) in the lobby. Originally $175, we are offering the 1st printing poster for $87...that's 50% off a historic 1987 piece of memorabilia! And while you're at it, put the money you're saving from the poster towards a photograph of Captain Trips.
New: Dylan Joins the Rolling Thunder Revue New: Dylan Joins the Rolling Thunder Revue
This recording from the first leg of the legendary Rolling Thunder Revue tour has it all: with phenomenal sound quality, you can hear every nuance of the energy and spontaneity this entourage brought wherever they went. Parts of this Middlebury, CT show were previously available in the Vault, but today we've added all of the songs featuring Bob Dylan including solo performances, duets with Joan Baez, and tunes with Dylan acting as the frontman of the motley crew.
Download Deal: The Surrealistic Jefferson Airplane Download Deal: The Surrealistic Jefferson Airplane
Towards the end of the 1960s, the Airplane's live sound was full of power and aggression; that ferocity made their classic material sound fresh, while newer songs and improvisations were reaching intense peaks never approached in the studio. This recording from October, 1969 - two months after Woodstock - captures that Sound during a jam-heavy set of pscychedelic rock. Grab this quintessential piece of Airplane listening for only $5, tune in, and enjoy the flight (wherever it takes you).

New Release: Hot Tuna New Release: Hot Tuna
The seeds were planted in Jefferson Airplane, but Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady's love of the blues reached its full potential in Hot Tuna. This weekend, we're releasing a set from the 1991 Mid-Summer Festival in Telluride, CO, with Jorma's impressive finger-picking, Jack's melodious bass lines, and the telepathic interplay between the two on full display. It's mostly an acoustic set, but this trio configuration of the group also featured electric elements, including some sizzling slide work from Jorma. Go get some blues Hot Tuna-style.
New Jazz Release: Rahsaan Roland Kirk New Jazz Release: Rahsaan Roland Kirk
A year before he added "Rahsaan" to the beginning of his name, Roland Kirk took the stage at the 1969 Newport Jazz Festival and blew the crowd away with his unique mix of avant-garde jazz, gospel, blues, and R&B. This set is a great introduction to his music, with plenty of stunning examples of Kirk's multi-instrumental techniques. Don't be one of the "jive pot-smoking city slicker hipsters" Kirk jokingly teases in the audience: crank up and enjoy this 1969 Roland Kirk set.
Featured Video: John Sebastian, "Darling Be Home Soon," Tanglewood, July 21, 1970 Featured Video: John Sebastian, "Darling Be Home Soon," Tanglewood, July 21, 1970
While he never quite matched the commercial success he enjoyed with the Lovin' Spoonful during his solo career, John Sebastian was still beloved for his ability to make enormous venues like Tanglewood feel like an intimate gathering, and for beautiful songs like this
