Concert Vault: Free live recordings on your iPhone

Wolfgang's Vault, which offers online streams of hundreds of live shows by big-name bands, has updated its free iPhone app.

The free ConcertVault iPhone app gives you streaming access to hundreds of live recordings.

Wolfgang's Vault is an online archive containing hundreds of high-quality concert recordings, mostly from big classic-rock artists like The Who and U2, but with a few newer artists, such as The Walkmen, thrown in as well. (Here's a complete list of performers whose recordings are available on the service.)

Last month, Wolfgang released an updated version of its much-lauded free iPhone application, Concert Vault, which gives you access to these amazing shows directly from your iPhone or iPod Touch.

The update adds a couple minor features, including a list of featured concerts--helpful for keeping track of shows that have been recently added to the vault--and fixes some reported problems with stuttering and stalling.

I've been listening to the Who's 1973 performances of "Quadrophenia" over a 3G connection for the last half hour, and so far, the app--and the band--are both performing flawlessly. This is a worthy update to a must-have download for live music fans.
