HOWTO Convert Files

 

Disclaimer: Everything hosted at Owl and Bear is presumed to be free and legal. All material has been obtained from sites (like Dime-a-Dozen) that have a strict policy that prohibits the trading of illegal recordings. Bottom line: if it's not permitted at Dime-a-Dozen, you won't find it on Owl and Bear.

 

Notes: Wilco has requested that the charity Living Room Concerts only be shared among event attendees; these recordings are therefore not available for download at Owl and Bear.

It takes a while to download, gather, and upload this stuff- and all for the sole purpose of putting it all in one place. I also have other things going on, etc., etc., such as unruly cats.

 

I haven't even listened to a single one of these. Sometimes, things take time. ;)

 

:cheers

To do a single song in Mp3 or FLAC takes minutes - to put up many songs takes hours. That is why everyone who is able should really learn to use BitTorrent. I think it's cool to share - but I think if a person is going to constantly ask for stuff they should learn BitTorrent or build up a collection and do blanks & postage - at some point.

btw the link to disk 1 and 2 of the complete singles mp3 is the same link

 

 

Sorry - I must have made a mistake. Someone else will have to put it up - I'm not doing Mp3 anymore. I don't have the links anymore - or I would put them up.

Let's talk about that thing you mentioned - sometime.

 

Maybe we could get the dudes who run this place to ban whole shows or whatever being put up in Mp3 - that in a non-private manner.

Word. I have not had any free time lately, due to a horribly sick cat and a lot of work at work, but I will try to make time this week to talk about the FTP.

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
