Playlist Description

Hi Vault Listeners and Music Surfers, Late last year I had the pleasure of spending a couple days chatting and hanging with Ed Pearl, the owner and musical visionary behind The Ash Grove. For those of you who don't know about this iconic LA Club, go find out now!!! The internet is really good for research, so use it. Suffice to say, from 1958 to 1973, Ed created a space and place that was the sometimes rocky but nearly perfect marriage of politics and music. His progressive booking policy foreshadowed a world where Blacks and Whites could live together, way before it seemed possible. In my playlist I've tried to give you a taste of what u have to look forward to in the coming months. In an intimate and revealing setting, The Ash Grove Archive is an irreplaceable glimpse into our Great American Music, at a time of enormous promise, conflict and change. Special thanks goes out to Warren, Ted, and Peter who spent long hours in the studio restoring and researching these tapes. Enjoy!!! all the best, Steve Rosenthal April 2009 About Steve Rosenthal - A three-time Grammy Winner, New York native Steve Rosenthal is the owner of both The Magic Shop recording studio in Soho, and The Living Room Acoustic Music Club on the Lower East Side.
