Carousel Ballroom Discography

This is a discography of albums recorded at the Carousel Ballroom in San Francisco.

This venue, in a building on Market Street and Van Ness Avenue, was known as El Patio during the 1930's and 1940's. It was operated as a rock venue using the Carousel name for the first 6 months of 1968 by Ron Rakow and a partnership which included the Grateful Dead, Quicksilver Messenger Service and Jefferson Airplane. Bill Graham took over the operation of the venue in July 1968 and renamed it the Fillmore West.
