Concert Vault

This is amazing!

Remember when I wrote about Bryan Ferry's latest solo album and mentioned seeing Chris Spedding play guitar on Ferry's solo tour? Go to Concert Vault and you can actually hear Ferry recorded live at the Bottom Line in New York City during his 1977 solo tour with the aforementioned Mr. Spedding on guitar. I prefer the late show version of The "In" Crowd.

Concert Vault is a collection of digitally remastered concerts recorded from the Sixties to the Eighties by the legendary promoter Bill Graham as well as the archives of The King Biscuit Flower Hour. All of the shows can be listened to for free and many can be downloaded for a price. You can hear Led Zeppelin in 1969, The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Faces, Jeff Beck, Bob Marley, Miles Davis, Jimi Hendrix, Janice Joplin, The Grateful Dead, The Allman Brothers - the list is truly impressive.

You will undoubtedly find something that will make you say "Damn!".
