In case there are newer Flecktones fans out there...
The Flecktones have been a taper friendly band from the start, and there are many great recordings available either by trade or online for download.
A great place to start is http://www.archive.org/details/BelaFlec ... Flecktones
This is the Live Music Archives collection page for all the Flecktones shows that have been uploaded for free download. You can also stream music (mp3) from the site. Make sure you check out all the other great music available on the site.
For those who use BitTorrenthttp://bt.etree.org/
is a good place to start, and shows show up on many other trackers, as well
For those starting out, it can be a bit daunting to find the "gems," so perhaps some of us who have been around can pick their favorite one or two shows off the archive to get people started?
The show I like to copy for people is:http://www.archive.org/details/bfft2002-08-10.shnf
I don't want to leave any one out, so if there is anyone who doesn't have broadband and would like a show, send me a PM with a show or two off the archive.org and I'll download and burn you some disks free of charge, as long as you promise to give away copies to your friends
Bela and the guys have given me so much joy through their music for the 10+ years I have followed them, and I hope they continue to amaze new generations of fans for years to come...
