Universal Music open the vaults

BBC Worldwide has struck a deal with Universal Music to release over 3,000 rare download-only tracks from its archived vault, including music from Pulp, Nirvana and session tracks from John Peel's Radio 1 show.

Universal Music said the deal would allow music fans to access rare TV and radio footage from the BBC's archives of Universal signed acts [such as Nirvana]. The record label intends to augment physical releases with additional downloadable BBC tracks over the coming weeks, including music from Pulp, Billy Fury, Marianne Faithful, Fairport Convention and Nirvana. Nirvana appeared on the John Peel show a number of times, so it's possible that tracks from these sessions will be released. Read the full story here.
