On November 3, Wolfgang's Vault will be hosting a special event, liberating the largest simultaneous release of live concerts for download. They've branded it "Cracking the Vault Day" and shows from The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Miles Davis, and many others will be available for the first time ever.
But you don't have to wait until November to get in on the fun. With today's announcement of CVD, Wolfgang's Vault is launching a classic Stevie Ray Vaughan Show recorded in Philadelphia in 1983. They will follow this up with a release of his 1984 Austin show on Friday, and these two shows are just the beginning of what will be offered from Vaughan come November 3. In addition to the Vaughan concerts, Wolfgang's Vault will be early releasing several amazing concerts each week leading up to the "Cracking the Vault Day" event.
