I'm looking for the dead's 10/09/89 Virginia show billed as The Warlocks, where they bust out the Darkstar. I heard it was truly stellar.

If anyone wants to trade, I will PM them my list and we can do the good ol' fashioned B&P, or someone could do me a solid and teach me how to use etree.

thanks in advance.

I have the SBD copy of this show downloaded from Archive before the whole "thing" happened. I don't know if thats of any use...

What "thing" are you talking about? I'll PM you my list and if you find something you want we can trade.

If you are sneaky enough, the "thing" with Archive is no "thing" at all. M3U is a playlist that, in the case of Archive, is used to stream music that they might not want you to have the URL to. Problem is, all an M3U is is a list of URLs. If you download the playlist, open it as a text file, and copy and paste the URLs into your browser, you can still download VBR-quality songs. Not as good as FLAC, but still better than AUD.

Rhino and the lawyers really dropped the ball here. They own it all!

As a rule, yes. I've heard some downright awful audience recordings.

Easier than what I was doing.

Well maybe not easier, come to think of it, but definitely quicker. I was just streaming the show and then copying the mp3 files from the temporary internet file cache. It was real time but less work. This other way is much quicker. Now sssh! this is our own little secret!

It has been awhile since I have tried this but after archive looked up the goods, you could FTP into the site as if you were going to upload, then browse around and still get to all the tastey nuggets..

Ok, sorry about my lack of computer savviness, but how do I do this exactly? Do I need to listen to the whole show and find it elsewhere on the machine? If someone can explain, I'd be very appreciative! Thanks.

I do it this way. Right click on the song title under the streaming menu. Click on "download this song". It will open a page in your browser that will say "action cancelled". Hit your "refresh" button and the download box will appear. You do not have to listen to the song but you have to repeat this procedure for each song. You are getting an mp3 file so do not trade these shows if you burn them to disc.

Wow, that right-click thing is great!! I never knew! A couple of years ago I bought a program that allows you to DL streaming audio/video and have been using it ever since to hit up the archive when I saw a show I wanted. You can check out the program for free for 15 days, after that, it's a flat $39 purchase. It's very easy to use and takes about as long to do as the right-click method. Might be cool if for some reason they take away the ability to right-click & DL. Just a headies up :cool:

Yeah, I dunno, that right click doesn't work. My machine goes directly to the media player. I don't get that action cancelled box. What am I doing wrong?
