I found this site yesterday, and it has a phenomenal collection of bootleg recordings.  The daily updates are staggering and include plenty of Paul's latest "Out There" shows.

The download link is at the bottom of each post in the comment section.

Just to follow this up:

If you do a search you can locate all of the Purple Chick deluxe titles, as well as a treasure trove of other sets.

To download, you get redirected to one of those "megaupload"-type places.  You can download for free, but you're limited to one download a day and it's fairly slow.  An average album takes me about 20 minutes.

I've paid the subscription before which allows you to download multiple files a LOT faster, and I've never had an issue with the billing or anything.

 

BUT…  If you want to try for free, go to the link and the download button is on the bottom.  Make sure you uncheck the option to use their downloader.  You'll then get a 45-second countdown before you can click the link to start the download.

Once it's done, you'll need to unpack the .rar files.  If you don't already have an unpacking program, just go find 'Winrar'.  It's free.  Just install it.  It's safe.

Now that you're ready to unpack, just open the .rar file and drag the folder inside to your desktop.  It'll unpack in a few seconds.  

Please note – Some of the files are FLAC files and some are MP3.  If you don't know, FLAC is a lossless file.  It's basically the complete uncompressed digital information.  Most general-purpose burning programs can handle it, but your iPod won't.  MP3 files are (as everyone knows) compressed and of a lesser sound quality.  But your iPod will accept them lovingly.

 

Have I missed anything…?

Thanks SH, am always on the look out for good boots, not just the beatles.

 

If the files are FLAC and you want them on your ipod you can also download free software FLAC to MP3 converters, tons are online so a google search will bring them up (best to make sure they are legit before downloading – always be careful what and where you are downloading and be careful what links you click on/what additional boxes are checked).

It depends…  If you want Beatles, Purple Chick has a few different comprehensive collections that cover everything.  The have definitive versions of the earliest material, the pre-EMI recordings, massive complete and chronological versions of all their albums and a whole series of live collections.

Or you can just punch in your favourite album and see the results.

 

But there is such a huge collection of artists on there, I'd suggest just start poking around and see what they have.  I'm sort of curious to hear how the "new" Black Sabbath sounds live…

Do you know if A/B Road works on the site (great find by the way), as there are lots of comments about getting stuck at 22 and being unable to move past because there are problems with it? If I were recommending a good start point, I'd probably recommend Artifacts I, II & III. A very good set.

Artifacts is a great jumping-off point.  I don't know if it's there, but I still have a soft spot for the 3-disc 'Vinyl To The Core' collection.

'A/B Road' is so massive, that if I were to download it, I'd probably just get the torrent in one big-ass piece.  I'm just not sure if I'm up to the commitment.  It's something like 68 CDs total.  I remember being overwhelmed by the '30 Days' set, which at 17 CDs was too much.

You can get A/B Road at Everything Beatles in the February and March sections, that's where I got the Twickenham rehearsals (already had the Apple sessions), its a fantastic resource for Beatles Bootlegs and added to regularly is Everything Beatles.

One hell of a set and one I doubt I will ever get thru so why the hell is it on my computer taking up goodness knows how many gig? Thank God Apple will never put out an 80-odd box of this for £5 billion pounds. I also have no idea why I have 8,000 live versions of From Me To You except its the damn Beatles.

If anyone knows where I can get studio boots of Dylan from i'd be eternally delighted to be informed (can only find live 80's).

 

Artifacts is a great 3 box 15 disc collection but a lot of the recordings have been upgraded since it was put out in '94 and '95(?) – unless it was upgraded itself which is what's happened to a number of boots over the last few years.

I have the complete A/B Road, can share if anyone needs/wants it.

I'm so glad I found this, thanks a lot! I tried it yesterday but accidentally left the download manager ticked so I ended up having to get a virus off my computer! It's alright now that I tried again without the download manager ticked and I got the Purple Chick "Strong Before Our Birth" Quarrymen bootleg which I had been trying to find for a long time without success. It took about 40 mins or more to download but it was definitely worth it.

Can anyone please link me to a site with working links of most of Dr Ebbetts releases?

They are so hard to find, especially the US releases.

Everything Beatles had a few of Dr Ebbetts work a good while back (i forget when exactly); whether or not they are still there and the links work i don't know.

There is at least one more, there may be others.

The Capitol recording of the Washington Coliseum performance is rubbish. It's the film soundtrack. Capitol only recorded the three Hollywood Bowl performances. Brian actually turned early requests from Capitol to record them live. They weren't even given to record Shea Stadium. You can produce a bootleg that looks like a Capitol cover, but that doesn't make the contents a Capitol recording. However, if it's at it's best, the Coliseum gig is a damn good recording taken from a professionally recorded tape. Just not by Capitol.

Meanmistermustard, thanks for the link, I was looking for Purple Chick links that still worked and here they are working a-hard-days-night-john-6.
I had originally download them all but I converted them from FLAC to MP3 and today I regret this. a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

By the way, the only other way to get the Dr. Ebbetts releases, is from torrent sites (mainly piratebay or kickass). From those, I got the A/B Road in FLAC, Dr. Ebbetts Blue Box (in FLAC too), The MFSL (MP3), Purple Chick Beatles live albums (MP3) and Ebbetts The Decca Audition (FLAC).

In My Life, I Love You More.

All Washington '64 bootlegs pre-itunes 2009, where it was made available, in pristine condition and complete, for a limited time as a free film to view as well as a bonus freebie to those who bought the stereo box, have been superceded and are pretty worthless. This includes that Ebbett bootleg – however if someone is looking for Doctor Ebbett downloads its only decent to mention it which is why i did.

Anyway. Octaner's Blog has re-upped Dr E's 'The Beatles In Italy (Italian Mono)'.
