Why?


Ask Gershon too. A couple of years ago(?) that taper Big Red Fat Mike(?) threw up on himself after Gershon blatantly put up some MP3 rips of one of his precious shows. It was kind of funny, but also supremely annoying.

I was thinking, though- now that people can share more and more music via the Internet, and have a reduced need for CDs w/ iPods, etc., filetypes will become increasingly more obvious, because you'll be downloading MP3s or FLACs, and you'll know it, and they'll go onto the iPod or whatever, not the CD.

I see the MP3 argument cooling down in a while. At this point, people just bitch because it's something that they can still whine about.

Also- one reason that I use FLACs on my site is because I only listen to about 5% of what I post, and am therefore too lazy to convert them for downloads. The other is because I like to give people a choice from the get-go. You can always download the FLACs and convert to MP3 if you want, but you can't really upgrade to FLAC from MP3, know what I mean?

Exactly - they can learn to do this themselves.

I'd like to thank you guys for putting this stuff up. I know how time consuming it is making sure it is all good to go before uploading. Beer and hot dogs for you both!

ha! think i remember that! he taped the cologne/germany 2005 show i attended and posted it on dimeadozen. he pulled the plug after mp3s of that recording appeared on this forum! i nearly suffered a heart-attack, because he stopped to share the recording about 1 minute before i finished the download! he later restarted the torrent, because the mp3s were taken offline again.....crazy good old times! :beer

Looking for Alpha Romeo Tango box set... anyone? anyone?

Much appreciation to the creator of A.R.T. too, I have a copy but it is without the noise track fillers - and as a completist I would like to have them!

I don't understand. Do I have to download all of the songs one by one or is there a way to download them all at once?

There is no way to download them all at once, unless you use something like the DownloadThemAll Firefox plugin.

Hey

Sorry to ask a stupid question, but how the hell do you use a FLAC? I downloaded the thing, but can't open it in Media Player or iTunes.

If it's a big file I'd like to change it into an mp3 for my ipod, but keep it in best possible quality to burn onto CD. Can someone please tell me how?? (Or tell me how to find out!)

Thanks, and thanks lots for posting all this stuff.

Winamp plays FLACs.

FLACs are a lossless audio format, somewhat smaller in size than WAV. The best thing to do with them is to decompress them to WAVs. In Windows, do that using something called the FLAC Frontend (Google it). If you're on a Mac, I'm not sure what you'd use.

Once you have WAVs, obviously you can burn CDs. You can also use any number of programs to produce MP3s from those WAVs. Or, rip the CD you just burned.

For FLAC info, see here.

And for Mac folks, you might want to check out xACT for Mac OS X for the conversions:

first time for me to post here and let me say thank you. What a treat, just discovered Wilco this year.
Bought a ticket to their show here in Cologne, Germany in May. Thanks for the downloads
