Wolfgang’s Vault Opens Concert Video Vault, Features Rare Performances from the Past Five Decades

NEW YORK, April 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Wolfgang’s Vault, the world-acclaimed archive of live music recordings, today announces the opening of the Video Vault. The collection features thousands of previously unseen recordings, carefully remastered, digitized and curated for this exclusive archive. The Wolfgang’s Vault Video Vault offers free streaming of these rare shows, and is the first time Wolfgangsvault.com has presented this priceless library of live music in video in one large offering.

The Video Vault can be found at http://www.wolfgangsvault.com/video/

Video Archivist Braden Towne describes what it took to prepare this massive archive in his background blog post.

Allow us to take you on a journey of sight and sound…

In the beginning, there were tapes — literally thousands of tapes of every format used in the capture of moving picture and sound from the last 50 years. Some were in such a state that they may only have had one more play-back left in them before the footage they contained was stripped away forever, while many others suffered from dubious labeling practices, making it difficult to determine what sort of content they might hold, where it was filmed, or even when. It has taken four years and millions of dollars to archive and restore this content so that it may be preserved and presented in the best possible form for your enjoyment, and we are proud to announce that the time has come for the great unveiling — the Concert Video section of Wolfgang’s Vault arrives April 27.
