Concert Vault features over 3000 live concerts by some of the great and the good, recorded and re-mastered over the years by various people. It’s free to listen after registration, so of course there’s advertising all over the place, but that said, there’s some choice stuff on here. Makes a change from YouTube anyway and there are downloads available for a price too. Nice.
How do you do it? We’ve transferred these aging, but well-preserved, tape archives to highest-quality digital formats using the best tools available, and we have carefully catalogued everything. The Concert Vault is fully licensed by BMI, ASCAP, and SESAC, and we pay these performance rights organizations every time you listen to a concert. The license fees make their way back to the performers that made the music. Download revenues are also shared with performers and publishers as appropriate. One of our top priorities will always be to make sure that the artists are compensated for their performances.
