Title: The Supreme Topic of Bootlegs
Post by: Zeek 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.

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.
Title: Re: The Supreme Topic of Bootlegs
Post by: Zeek on February 16, 2011, 11:51:16 AM
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!
Title: Re: The Supreme Topic of Bootlegs
Post by: vosnos on February 16, 2011, 12:12:03 PM
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.
Title: Re: The Supreme Topic of Bootlegs
Post by: Zeek on February 16, 2011, 12:59:04 PM
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.
Title: Re: The Supreme Topic of Bootlegs
Post by: jpar on February 16, 2011, 02:38:01 PM
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!
Title: Re: The Supreme Topic of Bootlegs
Post by: vosnos on February 17, 2011, 06:42:17 PM
For shows that are no longer active on torrent sites would you guys prefer FLACs or MP3s?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.

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

I'll start on it now, actually.


Also. Question- is there a track 18 (or was it just encore noise?) on the second boot? (Athens)


Also, Bonner Springs is already on WUWTL: http://wokeupwaytoolate.com/filedump/Solo%20Folds%20Bootlegs/MP3/2007-06-19%20Bonner%20Springs,%20KS/





Thirdly. .rars or .zips Please if you're going to upload additional shows. Also what the hell is this other format that my compy doesn't know... and that I don't know. ???

Anyway. Thanks for the efforts peoples! Will get it all up on WUWTL (and I've got a few that have been waiting here too.)

Absolutely, I have no problem with bootlegs being released in both formats if possible. I just think flacs are unnecessary, and flac supporters are elitists =P

I can't understand the benefit in taking what is inherenty a poor quality/dirty source (a bootleg) and presenting it at such high bitrates/or uncompressed. To me it seems like shooting a video on your mobile/cell phone and uploading it in FullHD. It's still going to look like mobile phone footage, but it's going to be ridiculously inconvenient to download and to store.

Obvioulsy I am no audiophile... and I don't own expensive headphones... so perhaps that has something to do with my perspective.

I'm all for options, but I don't see much benefit in flacs. Each to their own!

Good to see you're still around Andy!

Cheers.

I'm gonna be uploading the FLACs whenever I add stuff here.  You can always convert to MP3 but you can't go the other way.  

Anyway, here is another BFF show.  It's at The Fillmore, San Francisco, CA from 11/28/97 (http://www.mediafire.com/?daomc6r0muhqd).  It was recently on DIME but has lost its seeders.

A pretty standard setlist but a fantastic show as always.

EDIT:  Actually, after reading mightb0y's post, I think I'm gonna stick with MP3s from now on.  It's more convenient to upload as well as download.  If you want the FLACs I can get them to you.

EDIT II:  So after downloading the entire thing and converting to MP3 I came to the realization that the Chicago Cybercast show is in fact their show at Riviera Theater from 2/15/98 (which I already have).  The Riviera Show can be currently found on DIME.  You may want to edit that info into the first post.

EDIT III: I'm downloading the "Live at the World Cafe" show and I think the date may be wrong.  According to The Magical Armchair (http://www.magicalarmchair.com/bff/oldtourdates_1998.html)  they played in Australia on 7/24/98.  I'm thinking it's from 5/28/98 because the text file that came with this says it's from the radio station WXPN in Philadelphia and that matches up with that date on the Magical Armchair link.  Anyway, I think the first post should be edited.

2003-01-10 New York City, NY – Beacon Theater  (http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/showthread.php?t=64540&highlight=Folds)(Traders’ Den) I know the show has been posted on this thread but the MediaFire file is missing some songs.


Also I caught myself mid-download when dime lost a tracker on a couple shows, I would love any help completing these:

1997-10-18 Raleigh, NC – The Ritz (got to 86.8%)
1997-08-01 Somerset (got to 70.9%)
1997-11-26 Salt Lake City, UT – Zephyr Club (got to 6%)


Cool, thanks for all the uploads.  That show from the Roskilde Festival was just on DIME a day or two ago...must've just lost its last seeder.  When did you find those 3 incomplete shows on DIME though?  I've been checking for BFF stuff regularly for about 6 months now and haven't ever seen those shows on there.

According to my computer properties, I downloaded the torrent files in April 2010.   I continually struggle with the ratio requirements on Dime.  I must have been blocked for a little while until I uploaded enough and by the time I was back within the requirements, the torrents had lost their tracker.  :(

Just a heads up to everyone, a BFF show at the Tabernacle, Atlanta, GA was put up on DIME a couple days ago.  It has a a LIVE VERSION OF AIR (HOLY f*ck) so I suggest you snatch it up quick.  I think it may be the only time they played it live.  Anyone know for sure?

jpar always bringing the knowledge.  Here is the show in MP3 format.  The quality is top notch and the setlist is crazy good.

Thanks for the share! If anyone has the Germany show, that'd be appreciated as well.
Happy to share my knowledge with the group in exchange for concerts any time... "Air" made several appearances at concerts throughout the summer of 1998 as "Godzilla" hit theaters.

I'll get that show on here today.  Were ALL your BFF live shows lost in storage jpar or just a large majority?

EDIT:  Here's the show.  Haven't listened to it yet so I can't comment on the quality but the setlist looks pretty good.  Sentimental Guy and Tom and Mary are cool to see on the setlist.  The order of songs is in the TXT file.

Ben Folds, Live Music Hall, Cologne, Germany (3/8/2011) (http://www.mediafire.com/?po8i29ca88r38)

Also jpar, I have a random question.  Did the Five ever play Silver Street live?  If so, when/where?  If not, do you know why?
Title: Re: The Supreme Topic of Bootlegs
Post by: Zeek on March 21, 2011, 08:45:25 PM
Updated with the mp3-converted shows from vosnos.  Here's some album art I used for the Cologne show on my converted set: here (http://img689.imageshack.us/img689/860/cologne2011.jpg) (taken from a YouTube video from where he played Mess at the same concert).  For the Tabernacle show of Folds Five, I tried to find a picture from the show (but that's virtually impossible), so I used this (http://img151.imageshack.us/img151/3946/ragewh.jpg) one instead.

(I'm OCD with all my mp3s being tagged with every possible detail  :P )

Were ALL your BFF live shows lost in storage jpar or just a large majority?

My digital library is intact, with the files I originally uploaded to Kyle's FTP back in the 90s safe and preserved for all time on various backup drives. My cassette collection with shows dating back to early 1995 (I think there was even a 1994 show) were lost in the great storage fiasco.

Thanks for the files! As for your other question, I'm unaware of any BF5 performances of Silver Street, just as many of the songs which were demos in the pre-Five/Five days were untouched by the band and only unearthed after Folds went solo. I couldn't venture a guess as to why that would be. Next time you chat with Folds, maybe he'll be able to reach far back into his memory banks and shed some light on the subject for you.

Do you have BFF live shows in your digital library?  I was under the impression that all of them were lost in storage.  And holy crap about a '94 show...happen to remember the venue?  Must've been a local spot in Winston-Salem.

I believe I've uploaded what I have digitally to the fileshare, or the content was taken off the old Clubhouse FTP and put up by others. Most of the BFF video stuff was copied from my tapes in the late 90s and uploaded. It's a Pain in the Ass™ to cross reference the server since there's no UI to it.

This is awesome! Thanks for sharing!

Did you tape this? I was wondering if there was a lossless version available?

i did tape it, and there is a lossless version available, as with all of my previous shows i've recorded and promised lossless versions for. i plan to finish organizing and get all of them together in one place and then unleash them like a pack of wolves. sooner than later. promise!

(i do follow-through eventually- you can thank stef for the fact that this is done finally, she kept poking me about it!)

Thanks for this. I loved this tour and the energy the other 3 brought to Ben's songs.

Listening through now, great recording!  Any chance of a direct download?


Also, in terms of this topic, I'll work on reuploading all the stuff I put up in the coming months to mega.  Mediafire decided to take it down without telling me, let alone flagging it.

Honestly, probably not. I got this from a torrent of a DVD a number of years ago and only had a hard copy that I burned and forgot about for years. I ripped it in the highest possible quality so I could upload it and forget about it. But if you'd like to keep it, I'd use youtube-dl to grab the video in high quality. For the file size vs. quality, it's more optimal than a VIDEO_TS folder (DVD interlaced video... yuck  :P).

Now that I have internet that doesn't have a data cap, I've been reuploading all the bootlegs I have to mega.  There may be some repeats of those on wokeup, but I haven't really done a thorough check.

https://mega.nz/#F!VxxBUDiJ!UfWMVcWuXCYMgMH03FJdEQ

The only thing that I can't seem to find on my hard drive at the moment is the Freaking Out DVD, which I thought I had somewhere.  So, if anyone has that, I'd appreciate a reupload.
