Free Download Friday #35: Back to Wolfgang's place!

I visited Wolfang's Vault once before (Free Download Friday #15: ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of The Dead) but since I got a message that he'd cracked open the vault and made even more concerts available for download (currently 763 items!) I thought I'd go back to see what was new.

There are loads of concerts that interest me and most are reasonably priced. For example, you can get 52 minutes of B. B. King from 1971 for only $7.98 or a whopping 1 hour 39 minutes of Stevie Ray Vaughan from 1984 for $9.98. Brilliant!

However, this post is called Free Music Friday, not Reasonably Priced Music Friday and two free downloads caught my eye. In alphabetical order... first up is Carly Simon from October of this year. Her voice is not as powerful or as clear as it once was but the emotional depth is still there and the simple arrangements works really well on the four tracks offered. I especially like the sound of You're So Vain.

Second is a band I mentioned in a previous Free Music Friday (Free Download Friday #20: The Gutter Twins). Wolfgang has made a concert from March of last year, with twenty tracks, available for download. The track that featured in Free Download Friday #20, Idle Hands is, I think, the stand out track from this concert but I also like The Station, Live With Me, Down The Line, and Methamphetamine Blues.

Two very different but equally interesting downloads from Wolfgang and both are free! Which of these tracks stand out for you? Are there any other free downloads in the Vault I should check out?

Summary

Carly Simon Oct 27, 2009 from Daytrotter Studio.
The Gutter Twins Mar 1, 2008 from Bimbo's 365.
