Ok, silly question: downloaded the torrent, but how the HELL do I convert it to something listenable (on a mac!)?
Edit: also downloaded several converters, but they don't seem to work…. The strange thing is that I've done it before, but now nothing works…. I used Vuze by the way.November 9, 2011 at 01:17 #20606RolfParticipant
The files are compressed with the official FLAC prog (on linux, but that shouldn't make a difference). FLAC should work everywere. But I have zero experience with MAC, so I can't help you. My only advice is to get something which isn't mac.

About that beautiful Alpine White Gibson EDS-1275 double neck,
I regret having the next sentence in my vocabulary but:
I'll tap that ass!
(If it ever would be in my vicinity)
The owner probably would just let it to be tapped with one finger before he/she sends the dogs for me…November 9, 2011 at 06:54 #20609Un.Chien.d.EspaceParticipant
i use "switch" on my mac. you can listen and convert flac files with it!November 9, 2011 at 08:23 #20610s_edelmanParticipant
1:23 (83min) makes it unCDburnable, I guess?November 9, 2011 at 08:28 #20611MarkParticipant

Edelman: If you make a little bit of editing, like removing the last 3 mins of applause + the first 30 secs which is basically silence, then it should just about fit a 80 minute CD.November 9, 2011 at 12:42 #20613
@supernaut: That could very well be, that it is a handbuilt one. This is just what came to mind. That, or he found a Rex Bogue (http://www.theguitarcolumn.com/2009/08/john-mclaughlins-rex-bogue-double.html) or the Ibanez copy thereof – recently reissued in a 45 piece run (http://www.ibanez.com/ElectricGuitars/model-2670RE).
My Epiphone is excellent in every way, although I could be lucky. I've read on some forums posts by people who detest theirs because of soundproblems (pickups, uneven wood, etc.) or hardwareproblems. But of course this thing costs a fraction of what the Gibson costs, and no two guitars are ever the same. One of my tuningpegs is a bit messed up (it has some play from the start, but I can live with that – for now), but it came out of the box beautifully set up and it resonates magnificently. So if you can pick one up cheap, try it out a bit first (like always) and then by all means buy it!
@Crackpot: If you're lucky and nice, I MIGHT let you lay a finger – or even a whole hand – on mine… But although that white one (as used by John McLaughlin, as you well know) is beautiful, I must admit I like it more in cherry. Have you seen the Jimmy Page signature version (http://gc.guitarcenter.com/jimmy-page/) ?

listening now. nice recording. thanks again.
i love that part starting at about 15min, sounds like the eerie soundscapes pink floyd used to do. careful with that e-bow, hans.November 14, 2011 at 15:09 #20616
Thanks for the recording Rolf, really cool! As I'm anal retentive when it comes to having covers for my itunes albums, I made one for this recording. It is available here

I know I keep asking and I'm being ignored again and again, but
is it possible to get this (and other recordings) without having to use Torrent?November 14, 2011 at 17:56 #20618fillmoreParticipant
Joecoco: I have the FLACs laying in my public Dropbox-folder and I can send you the link. E-mail me: mpnews[at]motorgigs[dot]org!November 14, 2011 at 18:41 #20619
jazznik: very nice cover, thank you!
