It is indeed fabulous.
And no it's not all the same concert.

Discs 1 and 2 are from Ft. Worth TX - 7/18/78
Discs 3 and 4 are songs culled from Memphis - 6/28/78, Lexington KY - 6/29/78, Detroit - 7/6/78 and Houston - 7/19/78

Ha Ha..

gimmekeef found it and copied it for you and didn't give you the songlist..

been there..done that

Most of us torrent buffs aren't all that organized, some guy.

I can't even find Handsome Girls.  It will show up again.  Probably mixed up in either the Bruce or Bob stuff

the '78 version of love in vain is my favorite. Excellent use of tension and release. I actually feel like I was abandoned when listening to it.

Gotta thank Feej again for sending me this fantastic boot.

Thanks Feej!

I don't have a favorite disc.  To me, all four are excellent.  I think I'll play all four discs tomorrow to get Sunday going.  I'm gonna need it.

Funny, I've been playing the shit out of this set lately. This is rock and roll at its finest, no doubt about it. I know that on some nights in '78, the band was fairly sub-par. But every now and again? Best live band EVER.   :willya

µTorrent is the easiest bit torrent client I've used. You can get it here:
http://www.utorrent.com/download.php

And if you've never used bit torrents, you'll find a lot of info here:
http://netforbeginners.about.com/od/peersharing/a/torrenthandbook.htm?terms=bittorrents

Good luck!

One thing to remember about torrents is the file format is usually FLAC or maybe SHN.Most pc audio players will not play them. Also you need a software burning program that supports burning these lossless files.Once you burn them they play fine on any stereo system or mp3 type system.Good Luck

Title: Re: Handsome Girls
Post by GotToRollMe on Apr 22nd, 2008 at 2:59pm
Forgot about that, gimmekeef.  The FLAC codec can be downloaded here:
http://flac.sourceforge.net/
http://flac.sourceforge.net/download.html

Also, Media Player Classic will play just about any file that you'll be downloading via bit torrents:

I've been looking for this for awhile - thanks to Holden for the piratebay tip.  PSA re the piratebay torrent. I downloaded and was seeding for a few days. finally burned 4 discs but looks like discs 3 and 4 are messed up?  Missing 1/2 the songs on each cd?   Can anyone confirm this?  
IF there's a better torrent source out there please advise.
Anyway, the sound quality is excellent and amazing performances from '78.  Weaving at its finest. Absolutely love Beast of Burden.

First post here on the new rocks off but think I posted on the old board years ago, so HELLO ALL!

is there any kind of bypass/shortcut for  computer morons such as myself? i play guitar much better than i play computer

thanks!

You can use an audio converter to convert the files into .mp3s or .wavs

Seems a lot of you agree with my assessment of HG 3.
Always a good choice for a Fryday night when the drinks are flowin' and the chiba smokin'
