Pearl Jam Hard Drive

edited August 2013 in The Porch
I don't have the quantity of music to do it, but I thought I'd throw it out to the board:

My buddy is a huge Phish fan and recently got a copy of an external hard drive containing, literally, every recorded Phish show in the band's history. Once someone (or multiple people) compiled it, subsequent fans paid the $60-80 to buy an external hard drive and got a copy. Granted, its way, way too much music to put on your ipod, but you can browse through it and listen to just about any show, song, appearance you want.

Seems like something that would be awesome to have for pearl jam. Anyone interested in starting something like that?

    what percentage of PJ material is already out there?

    I'd be more interested in having all video
  • Pearljambootlegs.org is a good start.

    Back when I first started my PJ bootleg collection, someone on the boards offered to copy his collection to a hard drive for me. All I had to do was ship him a blank hard drive and include a box to ship it back to me and return shipping. He sent me like 100-150 shows.

    I am not really great with computers (but how card can copying a hard drive be). I might be willing to do the same for someone.

    willing to help any way i can. I can set up an ftp site on a 2tb drive and leave it up to collect everything, this would be great, and then we can just add new stuff as time goes on

    Sounds awesome! I have a lot that I could add/contribute. Let me know.

    ok ill have it up by tommorrow night the latest. ill post info here (and once its complete i have no problem copying / sending back drives as long as you guys cover shipping etc...) i think the connection is 40 megs each way might be 50 would have to test.

    Glad there's some interest in this. I wish I had more technical know-how.

    One suggestion I have (which I could help with potentially) is to create a folder structure by year that includes every show. As the hard drive is circulated, hopefully it will continue to fill up. That way we'll know exactly what shows are included and what shows are outstanding.

  • afew yrs back...on the other forum... sent some dude an external. he sent it back with every pj show ever recorded from 90 - 03, also got some of the 03s-06's that didnt fit onto it on about 30 or so blank dvds.

    this is 100s of shows in flac/shn format.

    im sure a bunch of people here remember the audio archives that were compiled... but there have been so many upgrades its hard to keep track these days of what the hell i actually have
    it's largely due to eddie that i liked to jump off of things as a child...
  • West15thWest15th Posts: 113
    Do you still have that 90-03 collection? That would be the best place to start!

    How is your upload speed ?? :) :)
  • bootheadboothead Posts: 137
    working on the file structure of the ftp site and getting a domain name (free one) set up. Should have the details up tonight and we can start this project, i think its gonna be great, i was thinking we should have a video folder also for the video recording we can dig up, i know i have a bunch in boxes i can transfer from vhs to encode on computer to a format we can all watch. if someone else has a better copy of the same show they can upload it and replace the worse one
  • This sounds pretty awesome. I have all the official boots from 2000 to current, but not much before that. Everything I have is .mp3 so the file sizes aren't that large. Hopefully the FTP stays nice and organized, like a root folder for each year, and then each show in order inside of that. That's how I set up my own personal folder at least.

    yea the file structure will be something like 3 folders, Audio, Video and Bulk Upload. so people can upload alot of stuff at once without worrying about file structure in the Bulk folder. then the sub folders will be the 4 digit year, then the sub of those will be 4 digit date code followed by city (1028 - Seattle, WA) something like that, im open to suggestions
  • Count me in!! :D Thanks.. I might poop myself a little
    I will be what i could be

    I'm in, but careful of encouraging bootlegging. Since I missed out on the BluRay, I was seeking someone to make a copy for me and got my wrist slapped. Didn't read the rules about bootlegging.

    I'm interested in this hard drive idea as long as we aren't breaking 10c rules.

    Thanks!

    I have over 100 show from 91 to 10 and my thought is let's try for flac or other good sounding files. I rip the mp3s at good speeds but they never spend as good as the CD versions. I am in no way an audiophiles--- but I notice that things like guitar riffs and cymbals get lost on the mp3s. My issue is I have never figured out anything hut mp3 but now would be a great time to do so.

    I'm confused. Are we creating a website, or is someone to create the hard drive, and then start spreading copies?

    I'm happy to be a branch and start copying/sending out hard drives. Just need someone to make the first one.
  • just found the hard drive everything from 90-03 is still on it! actually part of 03 is on it... i have 03-06 backed up onto blank dvds. 03, and 04 are shin/flac, 05s are mp3s from basecamp, 06 are flac i beleive. whatever 07s i have are fan recordings... and everthing from 08-10 is on cd from kufala.

    obviously the 90-03s vary in quality, all 00s and 03s are official boots. everything before are either soundboard, fm radio broadcasts, or fan recordings
    it's largely due to eddie that i liked to jump off of things as a child...
  • bootheadboothead Posts: 137
    Do you guys think the audio format should be mp3? FLAC is awesome but will it be too big for what we are trying to do? If anyone uploads FLAC i have no problem encoding them to mp3. Currently the site will be 2tb but I have no problem adding drives if this thing takes off. I got the server setup just having a few issues with my firewall but i will have the details up today ( I know i said last night sorry )
