All right guys...calm down here.  Peaches, are you having problems with downloading the files or actually playing them on your computer?  The files are meant to be downloaded first with a program called "bit torrent."  Do a search and you'll find a site where you can download the program...it's small.  Once you have it installed, you can then click on the links they provide and download the files.<br><br>Once downloaded, you'll need an audio player (like winamp) and the plugins for the respective file formats.  The popular file formats that are in use on that site are .flac and .shn.  You can also find these files by doing an internet search.  <br><br>There are also other threads on that website where you can add your name to a list and people will pass a copy of a show on to you and you, in turn, pass it on to the next person on the list. <br><br>Hope this helps...<br><br>And, BTW Vincent, this is a fabulous find.  You're right, not only does it have a good amount of rare Zappa, it's got a lot of other material...it's like a meeting place to traders.  <br>

[quote author=Vincent link=board=concerts;num=1082911122;start=0#0 date=04/25/04 at 09:38:42]Has anybody used sharingthegroove to download Zappa concerts?  I mean, there's a ton of lossless quality Zappa goodies on there permanently.  By lossless I don't mean mp3, which Zappa would have cast off as shit if he were around today....[/quote]<br><br>still don't get it; lossless zappa bootleg is a bit of an oxymoron....an aud b- or aud c+ show will remain an aud b- or aud c+ show, lossless or not; even the soundboard shows are generally low-fi enough to be approximately the same whether it's an mp3 or a flac ? <br><br>am i right or am i right ?

In just one week I downloaded 14 shows (most of them are two discs), decoded them from FLAC to WAV, and burned them all to audio CDs without any problems.<br>This is great!<br>Thanks again!
