Did you also happen to miss The Monkees performing live at the Sun Theater on August 31st, 2001? Or maybe Rod Stewart and The Faces at The Anaheim Arena or October 17th, 1973? Well, thanks to a free app by Wolfgang’s Vault, we can listen to all of the live performances we missed. The Concert Vault App for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad provides access to live concert recordings when you sign up for free.
Concert Vault came to be after Wolfgang’s Vault got their hands on master recordings from the archives of Bill Graham Presents in 2003, which contained live concert recordings from shows between 1965 and 1999. Wolfgang’s Vault’s collection grew as they acquired archives of the King Biscuit Flower Hour in 2006. Soon they added to that country music, indie rock, folk, and jazz catalogs, and the list keeps growing.
The app version of Concert Vault gives you access to these vintage concert recordings dating back to the 60s without requiring that you be at your computer. In order to find concerts you can search by artist, browse categories, check out the latest additions and most popular concerts, or tune into Wolfgang’s Vault’s radio stations. As you’re listening you can create playlists and rate concerts, thereby building a collection of favorites. You can also access music sessions, articles, and artwork from the Daytrotter app.
I think I better go listen to The Who live at the Filmore East in ‘68, since I missed that one because I hadn’t been born yet…
