Klipsch Tape-Joe Holland

Recommended Posts

  •  

Dear Historian,

 

Have I got a piece of history for you.....

 

Joe Holland, who is featured in the Klipsch Tape is alive and kicking at 92.  As a friend of Paul Klipsch, he recorded this tape under the supervision of P.W.K.  Joe would fly around with Paul in Paul’s personal plane introducing new speakers to dealers.  Joe would play music from the Klipsch Tape, then The Tape would be played demonstrating the hi-fi quality of the speakers.  The sounds on tape sounded like the live drum Joe was playing.  

 

This man has incredible stories.  I took pics and videos of him but can’t figure out how to add to this page.  You may be wondering g how a lady in Hot Springs, AR (1.25 hours from Hope.) meet this world class drummer.  He advertised his Klipsch speakers in the state newspaper!!!  (Ninety-two year olds aren’t prolific with Craigslist, EBay, Pinterest, etc.) he lives in Little Rock, an hours drive.  So, off I went. I picked up his  KG1s Bookshelf speakers he has had since mid 99’s.  But, I picked up a new friend and heard hours of stories about his music experiences.  You can google his name and Klipsch Tape to read more about him.  

  No tapes or videos were made during the recording.  I have Joe's phone number if you guys want to get in touch with him. Sorry I couldn't figure out how to add the cool videos and photos.
Thanks,
Denise LIttle

Denise,

 

Thank you so much for posting. We hold an annual Pilgrimage to Hope, AR each year (there’s a section on this forum about Pilgrimages). In any event, Mr. Holland was actually a guest at our Pilgrimage year before last!  He actually brought his drums and treated us to a mini concert recreating the very tunes he played for Paul. He is a truly fascinating individual!

Denise,

 

Thank you so much for posting this.  

 

Joe was at the Museum a couple of weeks ago visiting Jim Hunter (The Historian).

 

The museum was a factory, the sound lab, AND at one time PWK's recording studio.  Joe was apparently telling Jim about playing in that building and being recorded by Paul.

 

There are some photos of Joe from last year I will try to find and post here.
