Freight & Salvage Discography

This is a discography of albums recorded at the Freight & Salvage.

The Freight & Salvage opened as a coffee house in 1968 when Nancy Owens took on the lease of a furniture store at 1827 San Pablo Avenue. The business sign of the store was retained as the name of the coffee house. By the early 1970's the club was the focal point of the Berkeley folk music scene. In 1983 the club was incorporated as the Berkeley Society for the Preservation of Traditional Music. In 1988 the club moved to 1111 Addison Street where it is still located.

The Freight & Salvage Coffee House is a "nonprofit arts organization dedicated to promoting public awareness and understanding of traditional music". See the Freight & Salvage website for more information.
