Does archive.org have a section where they vet materials as being public domain and free of copyright restrictions? I thought they just crawled everything that didn't have a robots.txt file.

You may want to check with your local library and see if they offer the Freegal service. It is available through my library and I can download 1 song per week (was 3 per week, but reduced due to budgets).

Looked back at my music library and find it was all dated 1999 and 2000. Before MP3 Players, I think...
Came thru P2P Napster... I wasn't alone... 25 million "peers" and 80 million tunes.
Never gave legality a thought.
Expect I'll have company going down the green mile, though many of my "peers" have since toed up.
Now just listen to Sonic on DirecTV.

Yes. There is a music section. Some artists permit and encourage live taping of performances. It is worth an afternoon exploring and streaming.

Many of the pages have live streaming. There are several formats available for download.

Late to this thread, but for anyone who has a legal interest, Google the Audio Home Recording Act of 1992 and the RIAA v. Diamond Multimedia decision. This does not address downloading from Youtube, which doesn't preapprove postings (but will pull them down after receiving a DMCA complaint).

Edit: Nothing in this thread should be construed as legal advice.
