Hey, it is one thing to complain about the files being in .mp3.

No need to insult Highway Child.

You don't have to download .mp3s if you do not want to.

Go get this in FLAC if it bothers you so much.

This is not the problem...the problem is that spreading mp3's is an insult to the taper! Want to see what the consequences can be : http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=198872

This taper decided to stop releasing his masters after having found them converted to mp3...and you know what? Most people in the comments encouraged him to stop, because mp3 is useless. If you write a book, would you like that I spread it with mistakes? Just like mp3...

1. If the taper wants to retain control of his recordings, the answer is not to release them. If he wants to share the recordings with the world, he will have to accept that nobody is required to obey his rules.

2. Releasing recordings as mp3s does not create a mistake. If it is converted to mp3, it does not cause the singer on the recording to sing a wrong lyric, or the guitarist to play a wrong chord, so perhaps your analogy of a 'book' is not the best.

I myself certainly prefer flac when I can get it. But I cannot always find the things I want in flac. So if the recording is something I MUST HAVE, and it is a high-bitrate mp3, I will accept that, as I CANNOT HEAR THE DIFFERENCE. And I do not re-upload mp3s to share on the net. They are for my personal use only, or to give to friends who, like me, cannot tell the difference, and who have no interest in the trading community.

If it is a recording I want, and I can only find it in mp3, I will download it, and if or when I find a flac upgrade, I will download that to replace the mp3 version.

All the bitching in the world will not stop people from converting stuff to mp3s.

That is the same problem the record labels and musicians are having. Once they release a CD, there is nothing they can do. It is no longer in their control.

I understand where you are coming from, and as I said, I prefer to have lossless formats, too, but if you are going to insult people for posting links of mp3s, you will wind up insulting at least 75% of the people on this forum.

Not only that, the people who post mp3s are in many cases people who have only discovered links that have already been posted by other people. They may not be the one who encoded it to a lossy format, so all you end up doing is pissing people off.
Complain if you want, but insulting people will accomplish nothing.

Just my opinion.

Peace.

thanks for this, I don't care 'bout the format, flac, mp3, who gives a sh*t? I don't. I buy official stuff in CD or DVD but when it comes to boots I don't care. If people want to share'em great if they don't want to, well, better put their collections under 7 seals so the rest of the world can't grab'em.
it's great to have this kind of forums to share unofficial recordings.

Exactly. Some of us appreciate music. The original taper was a nice person who recorded this show and shared it with the world. Music is only good if people hear it. Some of my favorite music is stuff that I bought off bootleg dealers on $0.99 horrible quality blank cassettes. The music was good, so I enjoyed it.The difference in quality between flac and mp3 in an audience recording from 1969 that was dubbed from vinyl would have to be so miniscule that even Eric Johnson would say "who gives a sh*t".

Aside from all of the above, this forum is the "Bootlegs - Other Bands" forum.
Discussions about FLAC vs .mp3 belong in some other forum.

Thanks heaps to Highway Child for posting this. I am always looking for Hendrix stuff I do not have.

Guys, this my second upload, I barely know what I'm doing, I don't know (yet) how to convert to flac. I'll stop until I figure it out ok? Got lots of good stuff I'd like to share, maybe with a few HELPFUL tips we can all be happy

What ever you do, don't stop posting. Music is for spreading in what ever format. Don't let some of these comments put you off. If it were not for people like you we all would be a lot worst off.
