For the music lover

For those of you that know me well enough, you are well aware that I’m living in the wrong decade. If it weren’t for the technology being what it is today, I’d be quite content to travel back in time – living through the 60s and 70s. I’ve said numerous times that I’d give anything to be able to go back and see Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Janis Joplin, The Dead, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, or many others including my newest love The Everpresent Fullness (re-release).


For those of you that harbor the same lust for a peak into this scene, I have recently found a wonderful treasure chest of music. Wolfgang’s Vault (Hat tip to my wonderful mother) has tons of recorded shows in a section called the concert vault. This is amazing, it’s got all sorts of legendary performances that you can listen to for free.

The site itself is a great example of bringing the right information together to inspire a community (they are still working on the community aspect but it grew organically out of users desire to spend more time there). According to one of thier information pages, downloads are on the way!!! Oh this is just so freaking cool!
