Fillmore archives

The Wolfgang Vaults has made available online a pretty extensive archive of concerts at the Fillmore in San Francisco from the late 1960s and early 1970s. The concerts are fantastic for two reasons: studio music misses out on the interplay between audience and performer and a lot of the bands included in the archive were just starting to make the mark – meaning they tried a lot harder. Dig a little deeper and there’s a few gems like the Psychedelic Furs from 1982, Duran Duran at the Hammersmith Odeon, Thomas Dolby and Babatunde Olatunji at Wolfgang’s.
