As a way to enjoy the depth and breadth of the Wolfgang's Vault's audio library, we've dug through the archives to bring you another installment of genre-spanning tracks to dig on. You'll find soul-funk to groove to, jazz to chill to, gospel to move your soul, jams to melt your brain, and more. There are a few specific song notes below, but to sum it all up, we hope you find something new to love or something old to remember - Happy Vault Digging!
1) Stevie Wonder got people moving at John Lennon's One to One Concert (Madison Square Garden, 1972) and provides a locomotive start to this mix.
3) Remarkably, Neil Young and Danny Whitten's guitars remain mostly in tune during "Cowgirl in the Sand."
4-5) Van Dyke Parks performing a song that would eventually surface on "Orange Crate Art," a collaboration with Brian Wilson nearly 30 years after the "Smile" sessions.
6) This live-in-studio performance of a Curtis Mayfield classic features Gregg Rolie on piano accompanying Steve Perry (verse 1), and Stoneground's Annie Sampson (verse 2) and Jo Baker (verse 3).
9) Calexico's fantastic cover of a gem from Love's "Forever Changes."
10) Here's Sarah Vaughan and surprise guest Dizzy Gillespie having a great time at San Francisco's Great American Music Hall.
11-12) Back-to-back tunes written by John Prine.
12-13) Back-to-back tunes featuring Howard Levy on harmonica.
14) Jess Roden's concert snippet is one of the Vault's greatest buried treasures.
21) Included here as a small, belated tribute to Whitney Houston.
23) This improvised jam session occurred around 2 am, when Nicky Hopkins (keys), John Cipollina (guitar), David Frieberg (bass) and Greg Elmore (drums) came back out to play following their headlining set earlier in the evening.
