One of the readers of this blog decided to help out the Magma fans who do not have access to DIME, and he re-posted the Alhambra show on Rapidshare, but in MP3 format.
The original taper contacted me and asked me to remove the link to the Rapidshare archive. He said that it was OK to post the show on Rapidshare, but he specified that it MUST be in the original FLAC (lossless) format.
I know that many of the file-sharing services like Rapidshare have a limit of 200MB for a single file. Unfortunately, Emehntehtt-Re is a 54 minute song, and it is over 300MB alone. So, it is impossible to put this file on Rapidshare unless you split it into 2 pieces.
Many people who upload their works to DIME are very adamant about retaining the lossless quality of their work. So, if you decide to repost a concert on a file-sharing service, and you need to post it in a lossy format because of size limitations, please try to contact the original taper and ask for his permission.
This has been a Public Service Announcement from your friends at magmasystems.
