Listen Up! Music Vault Adds 13,000 Live Concert Videos to YouTube
From Rolling Stone:
With so many concertgoers posting clips of concerts to YouTube, it’s a lot easier to overcome the fear of missing out. Now the music-obsessive fans behind Music Vault, which is owned by bootleg haven Wolfgang’s Vault, have made it easier for people to see concerts they may have missed over the past five decades.
From Digital Music News:
Music Vault has spent the past two years restoring, mixing, and mastering live tapes. Their archive of live videos spans many decades, and includes both older and newer bands. Peter Frampton, Santana, Sevendust, and Cayucas are just a few of the artists represented on the channel.
From USA Today:
The collection holds 2,000 hours of exclusive video spanning the past 50 years and rare performances by some of the biggest names in music history, including Bob Dylan, The Who, James Brown and Bruce Springsteen as well as such contemporary indie acts as St. Vincent and Fleet Foxes.
Launched in April [with 1,000 videos], Music Vault draws material from bygone venues, programs and archives, including Bill Graham Presents, The King Biscuit Flower Hour, Woodstock and the Newport Jazz and Folk festivals, as well as the recent film holdings of indie websites Daytrotter and Paste Magazine. Music Vault’s vast array of rock, jazz, blues, country, indie, folk and comedy video is owned and managed by Wolfgang’s Vault.
