Web resource for chasidic nigun

Steve Weintraub writes to the Jewish-Music mailing list:

"This may be old news, but while searching for a tune for "Shoshanos Yaakov" for Purim, I came across this incredible site of online, full-length nigun recordings, www.chassidus.com/audio/nigun/. There must be about 100 recordings, most with commentary in a real geshmakt chassidic yiddish. Many sound like vintage recordings. A real treasure trove."

But wait, there's more! Andy Tannenbaum writes about www.piyut.org.il (and www.piyut.org.il/english/). They have well over 1000 recordings of piyutim (including nigunim).
