These FLACs were converted from SHNs encoded from a rip of a red-book disc burned by the taper directly from the original DAT, so there's been only one generation of DAE.

mac_daddy just listened to this - it sounds MUCH better than I thought it would !!!


evidently, the taper was front-center, in front of Sirs Paul (McCartney) and George (Martin), according to posts I have read...

simply wonderful recording.

Diedre Is there any way you can make this available as a weed or tree? I'm sure there are a lot of people that would love this (including me!) I have dial-up internet access, so it would take me forever and a day to download something like that.

SeerSuckersuit I have a Musician friend in Amsterdam who knows his music well who saw the show on the 13th and here is what he wrote me ...

The show was divided into three parts: an acoustic high-on-close-harmony opening set, the Smile set and the final greatest hits part. The first part seemed to focus on making Brian feel relaxed, good vibes were all around. I must say his voice isn't what it used to be (but hey, like the review said, the greatest Beach Boys voice - i.e. Carl's - is already dead & gone), but his compadres del harmonia were more than up to it. Furthermore, most of the musicians (a ten piece band + a seven piece brass & violin/cello combo) turned out to be able to play numerous instruments, switching from one to the other with complete ease, just filling out the songs brilliantly. I sure as hell hope Smile will be brought out in a studio version. Also, pretty soon the first bootlegs of the European tour will be floating around... I heard Brian will do the Smile show in the States as well. I tell you this: DO NOT MISS IT, this show was one of the best concerts I have ever ever seen in my life. It was almost too much to hear so many beautiful tunes, I'm sure I wasn't the only one almost choking with emotion...

these are all ways to organize and facilitate the distribution of music. Discs are sent from one person to another on the list...

typically, a few discs are offered up to the group (RO members) via one of several methods (vines, trees, weeds)...

anyone may sign up. there are two different types of people (for these purposes): those who can make copies of audio CDs, and those who can not...

If you can NOT make copies of audio CDs (either with a standalone, consumer electronics product, or with a home computer), you need to sign up as a LEAF...

You then have to simply send a B+P package (click the underlined link for more info) to the person who is your branch...

if you CAN make copies of audio CDs (for you and/or for others), sign up as whatever you want: a leaf or a branch [a leaf if you just want to get a copy of the discs, a branch if you want to help spread the music, and while making a copy for yourself, making a few for other folks who want them (and have sent a B+P to you)]...

the people who originally offer the CD sets ("seeders") will organize the distribution in one of several ways: trees, vines, weeds...

trees: one person makes ("burns") copies for a few folks ("branches") who in turn burn copies for several different members. this method requires alot of work for the seeder, but gets the discs out to alot of people in a short amount of time...

vines: one person makes an original set of discs. This set is sent from person to person on the list. Each person makes a copy for him/herself, and sends the originals on to the next on the list. Along the way, people will offer to take on a few leaves. These spots are open to folks who are unable to burn copies for themselves, and simply want to do a B+P. This method is a bit slower on the distribution side because there is only one set of original discs that makes the rounds, but this is the most reliable way to avoid burning errors, and it is the easiest for the seeder to organize .

weeds: this method is open only to people who burn copies for others. one person gets sent a copy of the disc set, promising to make 2 or 3 copies to send out to the group. Each recipient agrees to do the same. This method spreads the music quickly, but often with errors, and it shuts out those who do not burn the discs themselves...

I hope this helps.
