    I suspect that means no it's not legal in as much as its been recorded and posted without the artists express permission.
    I clicked on the 2014 listing and then on Glenn Tilbrook. The narrative talks about a direct feed from the soundboard provided by an employee of the venue in question. It does contain a link to Tilbrook's web site but ...

    The disclaimer says "All recordings are posted with artist permission or artists with an existing pro-taping policy."
    Not certain how that differs from express permission. I guess the site complies with artists that want their work removed.
    In my case I was looking for more music by The War On Drugs and aside from the album I have it was mostly LPs or EPs and I found some concert material by them on NYC Taper. I will likely refrain from downloading from the site

    NYCTaper is 100% Legal

    The site is 100% legal. We have existed for more than 8 years and have received direct permission from hundreds of artists to post on the site.

    Of the two artists you mention, War On Drugs and Glenn Tilbrook, both were permitted directly by the artist.

    Tilbrook: I was contacted by the artist's PR with information about the upcoming City Winery show. I replied with a request to record the show, and after a few days the PR person responded that the artist had approved our recording. We were permitted early entry into the venue, and as the post notes, were also given SBD access (along with microphones in the room).

    War On Drugs: I've been recording them since they were playing small rooms in front of 50 people. I am friends with a woman by the name of Emily who was their manager from 2010-2012. She granted us permission to record their shows in the early days, and then I met Adam the lead singer. Afterwards I dealt with Adam or Dave (the bassist). Adam actually gives me a shout out in the middle of one of the shows (track 5 "Coming Through" at the beginning of the track April 8, 2012). I believe War On Drugs have been on NYCTaper a total of 10 times.

    Also, War On Drugs permits sharing of their recordings on archive dot org, read the section under "Rights" at their page at archive dot org.

    [I would post links to these recordings and to archive dot org, but I can't post links yet here]

    Any other concerns?

    This is good to hear. It is a welcome change to see the advent of new presentations of music from sources other than the major labels, which I suspect have gouged both the artists and the consumers for many years. It is also refreshing to hear music in a more raw form. Thank You very much for providing your web site with it's wealth of information about new musicians as well as their music. The link you mentioned is https://archive.org/index.php

    I will have a look at your archives it is always good to get acquainted with new music

    That is indeed a welcome reassurance. I withdraw my earlier comments.
