I have been trying to share this set for 3 years now with no success.
I have tried to do it piece by piece with nothing but bad luck or
sharing sites deleting my files. I have made this 83 cd set to be
downloaded the same way I was lucky enough to do all at once as torrents
as you will read in a sec the original notes(briefly abbreviated into 900 mb
which can be downloaded free at filefactory or you can make a one month
purchase and download it all at once your choice. Now here are the notes:


Hi All,
For my first torrent, I thought I'd offer up the first 3 discs
from what promises to be a MASSIVE set.
The set comes from Purple Chick, and will compile chronologically ALL
of The Beatles Sessions from January 1969 that are known to circulate.
11 discs have been released to date, covering Jan 21-23, 1969.
If the response to this torrent is favorable,
I'll be posting the other 8 discs over the next week.

If you are just a casual Beatles fan, this is probably not for you.
Nor is it for the Faint Of Heart.
All of the tuning, dialogue, burps, farts, and- oh yeah- music is included.
The entire set will eventually number well over 60 discs.
This first installment covers all of the available material recorded at Apple Studios
on January 21st, 1969.

For those not familiar with the Get Back Sessions, here's a little background:
The sessions began Jan 2nd-15th, 1969 at Twickenham Film Studios in London,
then continued at Apple Studios Jan 21st-31st, 1969.
There was no "proper" recording done at Twickenham, but The majority of the sessions
at both locations was captured by the film sound crew, on 2 Nagra Tape Machines.
One was assigned to Camera A, the other to Camera B.
The 2 machines were generally running at the same time, so both the A rolls and B rolls
have a lot of duplication between them. But each set of rolls also has a lot of material
that was unique. Each roll of tape lasted approximately 16 minutes.
Often when The A Roll would run out, The B Roll would continue, while
Reels were Changed on the other machine (and vice-versa).
Thus, it is often possible to edit the 2 sets of rolls together, creating Uninterrupted
rehearsal segments, some lasting 3 hours or more.
Some segments last only a few seconds, due to the start/stop action
of the cameras or sound crew.
More information is available in Doug Sulpy's Excellent Book,
"The 910's Guide To The Beatles Outtakes Part Two: The Complete get Back Sessions."
(The Numbers after each track above refer to this book)

All of the "Available" Get Back material from these Nagra Reels fills about 127 discs.
But again, there is quite a bit of duplication between the A rolls and B rolls.

This collection edits together all of the available recordings,
in their proper order, without duplication. So 127 discs will be pruned down by about 1/3.
It is a massive and painstaking undertaking.

SOUND QUALITY and LINEAGE:
Sound Quality is excellent throughout. Bits and pieces of lesser quality have been
patched in from lower quality (bootleg) sources when the original tapes
were missing or unavailable. (Some 40 Rolls out of over 500 are known to be
"missing" from the sessions,
but a few fragments from some of these rolls have cropped up on various boots.)
But the edits are very smooth, and on the whole, quite listenable, considering the material.

The exact lineage of these recordings is uncertain, but to offer a guess,
it would go something like this:
Master Reels>DAT>CDR>?[editing]?>MKW>SHN
Again, this is only a guess.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
There was some discussion in a few of the Beatles lists that this set may have had an
MP3 generation somewhere in the lineage. The reason for the arguement were these:
1) freq. spectrum analysis showed the "signature cutoff" in the high freq. range
2) the same material as issued by Yellow Dog does not show this cutoff.

The answers that were given made perfect sense to me, although I would certainly invite
discussion on these points, as I am no expert.

1) These recordings were made on Nagra Reel To Reel machines that were notorious
for their limited frequency response (cutoff around 18000). Consider that the sessions
were initially filmed on 16mm film, for Television, the lack of attention to overall fidelity
makes sense. After all, they also had the studio multi-track equipment to make
Proper recordings, and the Nagra reels were used by the film crew for reference purposes,
which is also why you hear all the beeps, slate calls, and roll announcements.

2) Yellow Dog's source for these recordings was apparently the same as these,
but they are notorious for their use of noise reduction, and reverb, etc to "sweeten"
the sound of many of their releases, which would account for the more spacious
view on a spectrum analysis. The source for the "Purple Chick" recordings offered here
is the original, undoctored tapes-No noise reduction, etc...

Again, I am only repeating what I have heard, and I certainly invite comments.
If this is cause enough for concern,
I will refrain from posting more torrents from this set.

Meanwhile, I hope you all enjoy this.

Psychotic Dowmlaoding

Hello,

I'm a FILE subscriber and I am noticing strange downloading...two separate attemtps to download the same "part" results in different sized downloads. AND ... to make matters worse, not one of my many downlad attempts have resulted in the complete "9oo MB" file being downloaded ... only part of it.

Can you please check this out? I don't have problems downloading other folks files using FILE ... only have problems with yours.

I am sorry if this means a new uploading for you ... but there is something weird going on.
regards,
splhcb

I've now downloaded them all. The only problem I encountered was:

The "Jan10-1" folder: "Jan.10 - D1-14 - I've Got A Feeling" was not included. Everything seems spectacular.

Awesome work, let us know how to obtain that track, and bring on the rest!

Im hoping this will clear some things up, you have to download all the files before unzipping them,they are in lossless form already.

Hope to help you

I think the main problem is filefactory.
I downloaded the files many times and some of them were downloaded partially. I try many times and after all i downloade all perfectly ;)

part 2 shows a message like"The file "???" header is corrupt" DON'T DELETE IT but repair it using winrar. After that the new file work correctly.

At the end i unrar all and some files were corrupted (9 files) so i decided to download the corrupted files from another source ;)

these are my corrupted files:

Thanks a lot for the repairing tips. It worked and I got the same corrupted files as you.
Any chances you can let me know the alternate source to download them, or could you please pack them and upload somewhere?
