    It has no commercial value (I have ruined its 'piracy potential' by crossfading tracks and saving it as 1 lowish bit-rate file) and it might just make you think about buying CDs! So no harm done nor intended.

    It has no commercial value (once again I have ruined its 'piracy potential' by crossfading tracks and saving it as 1 lowish bit-rate file) and it might just make you think about buying CDs! People give each other 'mix tapes' all the time, yeah? No harm done nor intended. In fact the artist stands to gain and does not lose a single rupiah.

    This slapped together sequence of guitar oriented picks has no commercial value (once again I have ruined its 'piracy potential' by crossfading tracks and saving it as a single unindexed lowish bit-rate file) and it might just make you think about buying CDs! People give each other 'mix tapes' all the time, yeah? No harm done nor intended. In fact the artist only stands to gain.

    isn't the artist, as a matter of fact, dead? deceased? passed on? no more? ceased to be? expired and gone to meet his maker? a stiff? bereft of life? resting in peace? pushing up the daisies? his metabolic processes now history? off the twig? kicked the bucket, shuffled off this mortal coil? run down the curtain and joined the bleeding choir invisible?

    This is not a commercial thing nor is it piracy. I have ruined its 'piracy potential' by crossfading tracks and saving it as a lowish bit-rate file. Indeed it might perhaps make you think about buying CDs! People give each other 'mix tapes' all the time, yeah? I have bought every single Zappa release - on occasion, more than once. So no harm done nor intended. In fact the artist stands to gain and does not lose out in any way.

    The Divegeester FZ Mix Part 6

    Frank Zappa's 1988 World Tour...

    The Black Page (New Age Version)
    T.Mershi Duween
    Dupree's Paradise
    Sinister Footwear 2nd Movt.

    When Yuppies Go To Hell
    Fire And Chains
    Make A Sex Noise
    Big Swifty
    King Kong
    Star Wars Won't Work

    This compilation avoids some more obvious selections, to a degree, and veers towards weirdness and improvisation - but still celebrates what may have been Zappa's best ever band and their luscious arrangments.

    Taken from various sources.

    This slapped together sequence of 'cover versions', by rock groups, ensembles and orchestras, has no commercial value and it might just make you think about buying CDs of these lesser known outfits who have bravely taken on the considerable challenge of covering Zappa's music! People give each other 'mix tapes' all the time, yeah? No harm done nor intended. In fact the artist's estate only stands to gain.

    Oh? I've been using rapidshare for a long time. I chose it because it always seemed to me to be the best - as opposed to hotfile, megaupload, mediafire, etc. I'll take a look at the one you mentioned.

    Different strokes, it seems.

    Just wasted 45 minutes trying to upload a small test file. Seemed to be treading water. It was "preparing the file". Hadn't got as far as "uploading". Aborted. Cannot imagine trying to upload 80MB.

    COuld be a regional thing. badango and divshare don't work in S.E.Asia, for instance.

    on the books & stuff web site englishtips.org there are users that plead with posters NOT to use rapidshare and there are posters who plead with posters NOT to use anything BUT rapidshare. I think some have a rough experience some have a smooth one.

    The Divegeester FZ Mix Part 6 and 7 are now available (details and links above).

    For the Divegeester FZ Mix Part 8 a cherry picking sequence from a wonderful 1979 concert soundboard (Manchester, U.K.) is in the pipeline.
