PanARMENIAN.Net - YouTube is adding 12,000 live concert clips as part of an agreement with music video firm Music Vault, according to Digital Spy.

The Google-owned service has gained a collection of live performances spanning five decades, including gigs by legendary artists such as Bob Dylan and James Brown.

Live shows by contemporary musicians like Deer Tick, Fleet Foxes and St Vincent will also be available on YouTube, along with rare clips such as the Sex Pistols' 1978 performance at the Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco.

"After two years restoring, transferring, mixing and mastering thousands of tapes from our enormous archive, we're thrilled and extremely proud to share this massive treasure with the YouTube music community," Music Vault content editor Bill Antonucci told CNET.

"We believe this content deserves to be seen by the largest audience possible, and our partnership with YouTube allows us to do just that."

Music Value will also post daily video features and curated playlists on YouTube as part of the deal.
