In 1977, Vinny Golia released his debut album Spirits in Fellowship on his own Nine Winds label. Since then, Golia and Nine Winds have been essential elements of L.A’s musical underground, fostering and documenting the work of generations of artists. The Nine Winds catalog is now available to SMPL cardholders through DRAM.
