I need any and all rare Ben tracks!!!
« on: October 01, 2006, 05:57:21 PM »

     First, I would just like to say that this site is easily the most bad ass Ben site I've been to. I've been dowloading as many transcriptions as I possibly can. All of you that make those available, you guys truly kick ass and are my new heroes.  ;D
     Second, I'm a huge Ben fan, but I obviously have been living under a rock. I honestly didn't know that there were soooooo many rare tracks by Ben. So I'm begging anyone to help me obtain these. If there is any hope for this, please let me know where and how I can get these tracks. Thanks for all of your help!!!
I've been kickin' it in the USA, I got the master plan up my sleeve.

Someone on the .org bootleged one of the shows I guess, and I got them that way. So, obviously they're live. Would you like me to send them to you?

I'd love them if they're decent quality.  If you could send them to RobRX02@yahoo.com I'd be eternally greatful.  If you want to throw in Rent a Cop and RTS as well from the bootleg I wouldn't hold it against you.

Do all the early demos skip, because most of mine have a weird skip or cut off early or something, and I was just wondering if these were the only files available or if I just got screwed.
I could be bussing tables, i could well be pumping gas, but i get paid much finer for playin piano and kissing ass

Yours are screwed. Mine are clean.

The quality of the Mad-town bootleg is pretty amazing. Besides that during Underground the boy booting it sings along. And the Gracie track is missing it's beginning half because he had to switch discs. Good kid. Met him before the show.

And, I'm working on filling all of your requests.

IIIIFFF anyone sees that I'm missing anything, because I think I'm missing two or three (possibly 100, ha) send them my way. Because that'd be sweet.
