Archive.org This is Awesome

Go to the Audio Section and you can Download so many shows for free Its unbelievable. Its like bootleggers paradise. Warning its mostly Jam Bands although 311 is on there....

Grateful Dead shows = 2600!!!

A bunch of yonder mountain. No Phish or Widespread.

But anyways lots of smaller jam bands. Its a pretty amazing site.

I just downloaded the June 25th 1995 show I went to in 8th Grade at RFK Stadium. Dead and Dylan...Sweet!

here's the link to the audio section.

I've seen that site before, it's incredible. I think the idea is that they save all these audio files in formats that don't decay the way MP3s do, so they last for ages and ages. But they don't just do music - you can go on and download some movies, and books, and web pages from years ago. Pretty incredible. I've been downloading and burning concerts steadily, usually decent sound quality.

furthur is slow compared to that site but it was fast for the time. i was used to waiting days or even weeks to get shows through the mail.
