Updated with the mp3-converted shows from vosnos.  Here's some album art I used for the Cologne show on my converted set: here (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 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 know, I have all of those.  I was asking jpar what's left of his personal collection.

Thanks a lot for the link.  I check DIME all the time but rarely check etree.  Downloading the BFF one right now.

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.

Here's the 2/22/2011 show in MP3 format (with Kate's set as well).

I'll post the FLAC once I seed for awhile and reclaim my ratio.

EDIT: Put up zip archives of Folds and Kate for easier downloading.

The recovery on Don't Change Your Plans was wonderful, until he dropped it again.  Still, it made me want to cheer when he's just talking and has that burst of "oh yeah, this is how it goes," and just starts playing

Wow, thank you so much for the Southampton one! That night was the first time I saw Ben and it was great to listen to it again. Thanks!
