Vault – Information

The Vault refers to a large collection of Hunters and Collectors related recordings that have quietly aged in storage for up to 32 years before being opened up to fans in July 2012.

The Vault recordings cover the full history of the band. Most recordings are either DAT tapes or Type 2 Cassettes, though there are a few recordings in other formats, such as vinyl, VHS with audio data on them and Type 1 Cassettes. To date, the focus has been overwhelmingly on audio, though video archives do also exist.

Being perfectionists, Hunters and Collectors would prefer work being done before entire recordings are made available in one form or another. So for the time being, we have an agreement to provide one rare track every week, with no more than 5 or 6 tracks available at once. We have used this arrangement to provide an extraordinary range of long lost gems.
