CD-R Trades?

All about The Smiths' music, gigs, stories, anything.

Hi folks,

I'm looking to trade old Smiths shows with anyone that's interested. Nothing that's come from MP3 though, because that seems to make the recordings sound squelchy.

Anyway, my list here:

<a href='http://web.ukonline.co.uk/david.amor/smiths.html' target='_blank'>http://web.ukonline.co.uk/david.amor/smiths.html</a>

Let me know if you have anything we could trade. I'm UK.

So when you say not MP3, would file format would you like? Flac? Or on tape or something?

(Personally my 'collection', if it can be termed as such, consists of three or four MP3'd gigs- and I've converted the Flac ones to MP3 as well...)

Welcome to the forum, anyway <!--emo&:)-->Image<!--endemo-->

Thanks for the welcome.

CD-R or FLAC are both good for me.

And I so want Steve's collection.

So it goes...

Anyway, I'm setting up a site which will let people download FLAC shows via torrent. I'll announce it here when it goes live. In the mean time, you might want to try DimeADozen, where I've seeded a couple of shows.

I happened to find the guy on Soulseek (file sharing program) and all these concerts are there as mp3s or similar, but there's always a huge file queue.

Aye carumba!

At first I thought he had all those shows, but even so, there's an enormous amount. I hope I can persuade him to convert to FLAC and share with the world.

BitTorrent are little files that let you download bigger files. Kind of complex but you can read up on them in the same amount of time it would take me to explain them.

Flac is a type of audio format. Unlike MP3, WMA, etc, it doesn't play on a lot of software (e.g. iTunes), but it's really good quality and so some people prefer it. Loads of bootlegs are 'flac'.

Pretty much as Elko says.

Bittorrent is a way of sharing files, a bit like Napster.

FLAC is like MP3, except there's no drop in quality. It's 100% CD perfect, which means you can download FLAC files and re-convert them to an identical CD. In my opinion, live recordings don't compress down to MP3 all that well.

You have to install FLAC, and then most programs will be able to play FLAC files, such as Windows Media Player.
