Foo Fighters B-Sides

SpartanacusSpartanacus San DiegoPosts: 507
Hey all.  I've liked the Foo Fighters from the beginning (being a huge Nirvana fan, etc.).  But now I'm in 'obscure track huntdown mode.'  
They are #1 on my concert bucket list and I have all their easily available/purchasable music.  But after finding a spin.com article ranking all 152 songs, I was shocked to see I don't own about 40 of their songs, mostly b-side tracks.  The easiest way to knock off about a dozen would be to locate 'Medium Rare.'  Does anybody who may have mp3's of this, and other b-sides want to do some mp3 trading???  I have 11K songs on the ipod classic and will gladly repay you three-fold if you can hook me up.  I also don't have '5 songs and a cover' EP.  No luck on itunes.  Will try amazon music, but if there are any huge FF fans who can help a brother out, I'd really appreciate it.  Thanks!

    Cancel that request for the '5 songs...' EP.  Found it on ebay.

    Pretty sure there will be several but it was never officially released for some reason. It was on a lot of live bootleg cds from that era.
  • I have a bunch of B-Sides at home. PM me if anyone needs anything. That way I have an email reminder.

    I'm 100% sure that when I saw that a few months ago, you said you were going to give me your vinyl copy.  I jotted it down.  It's an oral contract.  Still waiting.  At least I get can the FLAC as interest payment.
