San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 10, 2010
Jefferson Airplane, Jefferson Starship and Hot Tuna are pleased to announce a new partnership with Wolfgang's Vault, the premier online destination for live music. This partnership opens up new opportunities for fans to relive vintage live performances via free online streaming, and for the purchase of downloaded MP3 and lossless files, and vintage memorabilia.
Jefferson Airplane launched their stellar career as the first band to play at the Fillmore Auditorium presented by Bill Graham on Feb 4, 5 & 6 of 1966. It was conventional at that time for Graham to record all of the shows he presented at the Fillmore West and East, as well as the Winterland. The quality of those recordings, now in Wolfgang's Vault is exceptional. Among many accomplishments in their career, Jefferson Airplane also gave birth to two other world-renowned bands: Hot Tuna and Jefferson Starship.
Jefferson Airplane featured the talented vocals of Grace Slick and Marty Balin. They had a fantastic bass player named Jack Casady, and a legendary lead guitar player named Jorma Kaukonen. Paul Kantner was their well-respected songwriter and rhythm guitar player. Together with Spencer Dryden on drums, this was the legendary Jefferson Airplane. Today, you can hear many of the great concert performances by Jefferson Airplane, Hot Tuna and Jefferson Starship exclusively at Wolfgang's Vault.
Of the new partnership, Wolfgang's Vault founder and CEO Bill Sagan commented: "The influence these bands had on the history of live music is an essential chapter in the book of rock history. Bill Graham said there were none like them before they came along, and we're pleased to preserve their legacy and to make it available to the fans of live music."
Bill Thompson, manager of Jefferson Airplane, Jefferson Starship and former manager of Hot Tuna commented: "Bands for decades have been inspired by Jefferson Airplane, Jefferson Starship, and Hot Tuna. It is important that music fans that come to it later get to hear these shows for themselves; and it is important that the fans who were there and who were part of it have a place to reconnect with it." Wolfgang's Vault is that place.
Jorma Kaukonen said, "These recordings are like a window into a time long gone and vaguely remembered. I hear them and I find myself saying, 'We were pretty good!' I'm glad somebody saved them for posterity."
