The Supreme Topic of Bootlegs
« on: February 15, 2011, 05:32:37 PM »
EDIT: I went back through here looking for some stuff, and it appears as though MediaFire decided to delete a bulk of my uploads without informing me.  So, I apologize for the lack of linkage to a variety of bootlegs listed here.  Hopefully, someone has them downloaded and can reupload them.


 :(

Use a download manager like jDownloader to get everything quickly and painlessly.  Extracting from a series of .7z or .rar files can be done easily by 7zip, WinRAR, and a variety of other archival programs (be sure to download each part, or else you won't be able to do anything with the files!).

Sweet, thanks for making this, hopefully this will give people more incentive to post all their bootlegs.  I can post more of my stuff when I get a chance.  May I suggest you make two different sections for BFF and solo shows though.

Alright, I put up everything I have that I know isn't on wokeup or on an active torrent.

If anyone replies with a new show, I'll add it to the list above!

Just a side note, the strings version of OAD at the HORDE Festival is an amazing rendition of the song.  Everyone should download that torrent before it dies.

EDIT: Also, dimeadozen has about 7 or 8 BFF concerts currently being seeded if you wanna link those.

Considering you need a login to view them, I didn't think it'd be worth doing (especially since DIME tracks a ratio, too, and not everyone here loves torrents).  If you know which ones still aren't on wokeup, link to 'em.  I'll attempt to go through them later, but no guarantees.

Sure would be nice to have access to some of those torrents without actually having to torrent. Anyone going to make them available to those of us who don't torrent?

I can put up all my shows over the next few weeks.  The next couple days are just very busy for me.  Do you have any BFF shows you could put up jpar?  I remember you saying a whole bunch of them were lost in storage though.

Honestly, I was avoiding shows that are still active on torrents for the sake of preserving the original torrent on both DIME and etree (as a few of those shows are).  But, since they're here now, there's not much I can do other than to add it to the list.

Thanks for the uploads!

For shows that are no longer active on torrent sites would you guys prefer FLACs or MP3s?  I'm pretty sure I still have all of the original FLAC files but it just takes longer to upload so if it doesn't matter I'll upload the MP3s.

In effort to preserve the shows, I (and I'm sure many others) would love if you uploaded the FLAC files.  It's nice to have the original to re-encode however you like instead of being stuck with whatever the MP3 is in.

+1 for FLACs.

-1 for flacs. Overrated!

Mp3 are fine, especially at 256k.

Would anyone be interested in uploading these bootlegs to wokeupwaytoolate.com so they can be more easily downloaded and preserved? I can arrange access...

Cheers!

And Thanks!

Ooh! I'm definitely up for the job! :) I could definitely try to have all this uploaded pretty soon if you'd want me to do it! :)
