We've brought you over 60 years of the world's rarest concert memorabilia. We've streamed countless hours of live concert recordings. We've chronicled the ever-changing landscape of popular music in our editorial pages. And now, with great pleasure, we give you our latest addition -- the Concert Video section of Wolfgang's Vault.
While video has been an important feature across all of our sites for some time, never before have we presented so much high quality video content in one place. You'll see incredibly rare performances by some of the biggest names in music, at historic venues across the country: Grateful Dead at Winterland, the Who at Tanglewood, the Allman Brothers Band at the Fillmore East, and much, much more.
To showcase this incredible content, we've developed an environment that gives you the best user experience possible. You can stream videos to your desktop or mobile devices, share videos with your friends, or save them to your MyVault page. Thousands of videos are already available, with more yet to come, so stay tuned to Wolfgang's Vault to see what unfolds.
The Who: The Who: "Young Man Blues" at Tanglewood, July 7, 1970
The Who had recently shot to super-stardom in America on the strength of their landmark release Tommy, but the pretensions of fame certainly didn't diminish their capacity for rocking and rolling like angry young men. Even within the polite confines of the Boston Pops' summer home, the boys couldn't contain the sheer fury that propels this reinterpretation of Mose Allison's "Young Man Blues".
The Rolling Stones: The Rolling Stones: "Waiting on a Friend" at Hampton Coliseum, December 18, 1981
With Bill Graham along for the ride as tour manager, every night of the Rolling Stones 1981 tour was bound to be an event. This particular night was no exception, with the band and its fans celebrating Keith Richards' 38th birthday. Watch as Mick pays a fitting tribute to his songwriting partner with this wistful paean to camaraderie.
Lynyrd Skynyrd: Lynyrd Skynyrd: "Gimme Back My Bullets" at Winterland, March 7, 1976
"This is the title song off the new album," drawls Ronnie Van Zandt's casual introduction to one of the meanest farewells to the square life ever set to music. When that chugging guitar rumbles forward like a Harley engine, the message is clear -- get out of our way, lest ye be trampled by our awesomeness.

Boston Download Deal: In 1975, guitarist/songwriter/inventor/electrical engineer Tom Scholz, with a master's degree from MIT, was working by day at Polaroid. By night, he was recording feverishly with his own rock band Boston, along with fellow Bostonians Brad Delp on vocals, Barry Goudreau on guitar, Fran Sheehan on bass, and John "Sib" Hashain on drums.
