Brewster Kahle Provides Update About the Massive Amount of Music Available From The Internet Archive

The complete post by Brewster Kahle is available here via The Internet Archive Blog.

The update includes info about several resources/projects. He writes:

Our live music collection now has over 100,000 concerts from over 5,000 bands (including an almost complete collection of Grateful Dead concerts).

The first phase of Internet music was the Internet Underground Music Archive, which is now back and available (thanks to John Gilmore and Jason Scott).

New: A mirror of the fantastic creative-commons Jamendo collection is also up.

New: Comprehensive recordings from the DNA Lounge, San Francisco venue.

Thousands of 78rpm records and wax drum recordings have been uploaded by users.

And the first “music video” from 1894-1895 that was found recently, reconstructed painstakingly by the legendary Walter Murch, and then he donated it to the archive.
