Wolfgang’s Vault

July 22, 2009

The world has become a somewhat better place for all you fans of U2, James Taylor, Jimi Hendrix Experience, the Beatles, Niel Young, Stevie Wonder and Michael Bolton (“What’s your favorite song?”).  I have just learned of a site called Wolfgang’s Concert Vault which hosts hundreds of live concert recordings to your listening streaming listening pleasure!  You’ll need to enter your email and a password to set up your free account, but its a pretty awesome find!

Already Stevie Wonder and James Taylor have been serenading my workday (I’m listening to Creedence Clearwater Revival’s 1974 concert at Fillmore West right now).  Sweet!

For those of you with iPhones, check out the Wolfgang’s Vault app as well.

The last couple of days I have been listening to Jon Foreman’s solo albums, each titled for one of the four seasons.  As I’ve been listening, my OCD has kicked in and focused on track three on “Winter” (the Youtube video below plays the whole thing with lyrics).  In the song Jon notes seeing the homeless woman the song is about brushing her teeth.  In another Youtube video Jon explains how seeing this woman do this struck him as an act of hope.

Listening to the song I have found myself challenged by my response to the needy and hopeless.  Take a listen:

If you like the song above, you might also check out Foreman’s song “Learning How to Die.”
