If you’re a music fan, especially raised on classic rock, and you haven’t checked out Wolfgang’s Vault you need to get over there now. If you do know about the Vault, then you know what an absolute treasure trove of music—and music history—is stored there.
The site contains 2,200-plus recorded concerts from the Allman Brothers to Zappa. You can stream them, and even purchase or download many for free. Now, though, you can jam through recordings anytime you want with the Wolfgang’s Vault App for iPhone and iPod touch.
We know a lot of you supplement your own music collection with the popular Pandora app, so you can pop your iPhone or touch into your home dock and let the tunes stream through your stereo system. Well we’re loving the fact that you can do that now with the Vault, too, and time warp concerts from the 60s to today.
The website supports WiFi, 3G and EDGE connections on the iPhone, and WiFi on the iPod Touch, with advanced automatic bandwidth detection and stream adjustment, Wolfgang’s Vault says.
Just as sweet, you can tap into the Vault’s radio stations that pluck from the thousands of songs in the collection, or create your own playlists to stream as well.
The only downside is it’ll be tough to get off the couch with the never-ending concert-palooza coming through your iPhone or iPod touch.
