    Default List of best known sources

    I'm trying to join all the "best known sources" threads into this one. I'll keep it closed for now so I can get all the placeholders into place. In the meantime, please PM or post in the original threads. Moderators, please sticky this and unsticky the old threads.

    This thread is an eternal work-in-progress, meant to reflect whatever the current wisdom of the members of this tracker is. Its scope will be limited only to concerts, I believe studio tracks warrant a different thread. Also, this list refers only to what's available here in the Yeeshkul! tracker, a map of the gold mine, if you will. If you know of a better source than what is listed here, by all means, please upload it! I'll be more than happy to update the list.

    Contributions are more than welcome, and thanks to Bert13, littlepieces, Darkcycle, goldenband and Mandrill, jimfisheye, movement, Eckoes, TAF, ******* (of course), zbinks, Lennyif for theirs.

    I've been wondering what the best source for Ivor Wynne is as well - anyone have any suggestions?

    I just read something about the city of Hamilton tearing down the old girl and building a new stadium. A shame, but probably inevitable.

    b_squared, think you've made a slight error...the recorder 2 link for the Boston '77 show takes me to the Boston '75 show. Anyone know the best torrent for the Lampinski source for the Boston '77 show?

    Thanks for letting me know. I've fixed the links for both 75 and 77.

    Best available does not imply it's any good!

    Thanks for your continued work on this! A couple of small suggestions:

    I think lordsnooty's recent and much-appreciated upload of Rec. 1 probably takes the top spot. The upgrade over the source used for patches in "The White Bootleg" is subtle, but it's still there.

    Careful with this one, there were two shows (early and late). AFAIK we haven't yet found a better source than "Obscured at the Rainbow" for Rec. 1 of the late show.

    This is the best source I've heard overall for the concert, but as I noted in the 16/44 thread, the sound quality of the "good" parts of Who Refused to Play the Encore? (aka Who Was Given A Seat In The Stands, IIRC) is better than the corresponding parts of Kbrubaker's tape, which is higher-gen and has flutter and speed issues.

    Still, Kbrubaker's tape is waaaaay better than the "bad" parts, and it's quite difficult to find those parts of the concert in decent quality, so it's a huge asset to have it. But you ideally would want both sources, at least for now (maybe someone will edit them together?).

    You're very welcome, and thanks for all the input. I try to keep up with all the new posts, and I have limited time for listening, but I still try. We are so much better off today than in the 90's, when I used to browse pf-roio.de and just dream of what things sounded like. As it turned out, a lot of them did not sound very good.
