Such a shame for those of us who can't Bit Torrent. But I'm being hooked up by Marcel at the DylanPool.

You have to install bittorrent to play these concerts because they are .torrent files. Seems like a lot to do just to play these concerts.

Here's a link to explain how to do it. http://btfaq.com/serve/cache/1.html

Once you've signed up on dimeadozen.org, do a search for 'lightfoot', and you'll see they currently have torrents for 4 different Lightfoot concerts.

Besides the two recent concerts listed above, they have a 1977 concert, and a 1987 Folk fest appearance. Both performances took place in New York, and both were taken from a radio broadcast.

I am currently 'seeding' both of the NY concerts, and I'll keep doing so as long as I can. Still downloading the 2005 concerts.

Made it thru just this moment to register, but don't even know what a Bit Torrent is.

Help! It wasn't a required field for resgistration, but I don't know where to go from here.

Any help for an old 49'er

Hi there you'll need to go here and download the BT engine first before you can download the Lightfoot material. Once you have done that, go back to the link which is mentioned above, look for the Lightfoot files and hit download. You'll only be able to do 3 at a time.

Hope that helps :D

The May 21st show is available on this site but a word of warning, it's been encoded with SHN and so far I have yet to figure out a way to play these files!!

SHN (shorten) is a 'lossless' format, like FLAC.

So, it should have the same audio fidelity as the original source CD. Even the best-sounding MP3s are inferior to their source material.

There are programs out there to let you convert FLAC or SHN to WAV (or AIFF for Macs). Then, burn a CD.

if its in SHN, you can download a simple converter to listen to them. SHN files are smaller and easier for download (lossless too!)

Thanks I figured it out, I guess the other thing too is you can't listen to it while you are trying to download the file, you have to wait until the entire thing is done.

Got home last night at 10:00 pm and I clicked on the May 21st concert and sat back in my chair and listened for the full two hours and pretended I was there at Massey. The audio quality is excellent. Could not believe a small portable device can do that.

Well, I tried...mysteriously recieved a large wmv file about the armed services, which worked; then when I tried to download the Lightfoot file I really wanted it crapped out: 'GL 4-29-05 Vegas: bad data from tracker - not a valid bencoded string' (and a donate window came up, LOL!). Oh well...when someone figures out how to get this show on mp3 or wmv let me know and I'll trade you for it.
Best,
Tony

Seahawk: ignore the "error" message(s), and just leave the bittorrent program running. Just leave the computer on, and see what happens. Leave it on overnight and see how it's doing in the morning. Seriously. Such are the ways of bittorrent. Patience is a virtue.

Bittorrent 'rewards' you for uploading. The download speed will increase after it's been going for a while. When using Bittorrent for large files, you get used to disregarding the initial time estimate that is displayed. Just leave it going.

Now they have the audio of the 1999 Much Music 'Intimate and Interactive' special on offer.

Only problem is, no one is 'seeding' it right now....

It took me a long time (like 3 days), but I now have the Saturday Massey show playing as I type this. I'm thoroughly impressed. What a great recording. Very clear; the instruments sound great. This will be a keepsake and memory of that night for me. I'm so grateful for the poster who posted this recording.

3 days!! 3 days to download it?
Does anyone know how to transfer these recordings to another format that's easier and less time to download and save?
what size are the files when you are done?
can they be recorded to a cd?

Once you download the FLAC files you can convert them to WAV with the program on this website:
