lopezz

I'd be interested in the Femmes (saw them in '89 or so, GREAT) and in JGB '78 (I don't think that is MORE '78 because there hasn't been a first JGB '78 vine, or have I missed something?). Oooh, and Dire Straits would be nice too. Good stuff, Lopezz!

Lopezz, dude!...*gasp*

Speechless, I'm literally speechless. And I was going to ask if anybody had any T.Heads shows, and the only tape I ever had (it's gone now, though) was a Violent Femmes show from a frat party at the University of the South.

I'll PM you, see how it gets started.
(I'm gonna have to buy a new DVD burner, this one's gonna melt)

Vining Possibility?

I am looking to see if there would be any intrest in a flac/shn vine. I have a lot of shows that I would like to share if any one wants them. But its too much for one person to vine. My idea was, a flac/shn vine. Vinners with flac capabilites could copy the ones they want. And if they want to - make audio cd's and start a vine for the flacless. It would be a huge vine(15 dvd's) but you would only copy the ones that you want and pass it on. I you want to start a cd vine, great! If you dont, no biggie,someone else might. No rules, no expectations, I would like to keep it lose and free. Vinners that can use flac and might be interested PM me. I can put it together(might take a week) The concerts I have are all good quality, I discard them shortly after I get them if they dont make the cut. I have around 6 to 10 shows of each.

JGB 85
More JGB 76, 78
More Old and in the Way
More Reconstuction
Pearl Jam
Dire Straits
U2
Jefferson Airplane
Neil Young
Crosby Stills Nash Young
Bob Marley
Garcia and Freinds
Phil and Friends

Some of these I only have 1 or 2 shows:

Talking Heads
Sublime
Violent Femmes
Grateful Dead Studio Outtakes 71-77
A Grateful Dead Movie of 10-31-80 (4 dvd set)

Shouldn't need anything to copy a DVD, except a burner...

...and whatever software you use to burn to CDs and DVDs. I just copy the folders w/flac files from the DVD to my hard drive, then copy them back to a blank DVD. You could even copy them onto CDs but you'd need more since CD capacity is less than a DVD.

FLAC

Yep, that works, thanks Hal, don't know if it saves any time as I still had to create a folder and copy and paste into the folder, but it seems a little easier than importing track by track into I-Tunes. What if I want to burn the FLAC files onto a DVD, in case I want to pass lossless files onto someone else? How do I do that? Can I do that directly from My Computer or do I need to download something else? I have a DVD burner. Thanks!

My way is to decode to the the same folder that the flac is in and then just go to add folder to library in itunes and add the folder, that way you don't have to add track by track

FLAC

I think I figured it out. I downloaded Trader's Little Helper a while ago and finally tried it with the 1991 Digital SBD vine. I use Windows Vista and I-Tunes. Let me know if I am doing this correctly (i.e., can I combine any of the steps).

(1) Copy tracks from the FLAC DVD to the Music section of my computer. I have been doing it one show at a time. Maybe I could do the entire disc at once, I don't know.
(2) Go to Trader's Little Helper, Decode Audio Files, and add the tracks to decode. I have been doing only one CD worth at a time, as when I tried to do the entire show, I get an error message. After it decodes, the WAV files appear in the Music section of my computer.
(3) Import the tracks, track by track, into I-tunes.
(4) Burn WAV disc on I-Tunes
(5) After ensuring the disc plays, delete the FLAC files on my harddrive. I've been leaving the WAV files because I don't want them to disappear from I-Tunes (I think they might delete because the one time I converted Apple's lossless files, then deleted them on my harddrive, the WAV files in my I-tunes disapeared). I don't want the WAV files on my harddrive if it takes up too much space.

Thanks for your help

my thought on the Phil disc is that it would probably be a good thing to inquire over on phillesh.net about that, because while it's clearly not Grateful Dead per se I suspect it's probably got half a dozen copyright/rights issues going on (book publisher! music publisher! performance rights! etc.!) that, from this distance make me pretty nervous.

If you want to PM me the specifics, I can pursue this with the Phil camp, or feel free to look into it yourself, but let's just say issues abound and we need more info. Thanks!
