Please, I hope there's somebody who recorded the African tent...Bela Fleck/Tiounami Diabate (sp?), along with King Sunny Ade and Amadou & Mariam were fantastic...one giant dance party
I know for a fact King Sunny got recorded, I actually spoke to the taper. The bad news is he said he was just doing it for a personal collection. However he was open to a B&P, so if and when he contacts me over email I should be able to get my hands on it and then pass it along. I don't know if Béla/Toumani got taped, can't remember if I saw rigs, but it was so crowded I'd be surprised if it didn't.
I spoke to another taper at Allen Toussaint, and whom I also later saw at Dillinger Escape Plan, who said he was planning on putting his stuff on etree. I don't know for sure what else he taped, but I seem to recall him mentioning Animal Collective.
Please let me know if you get King Sunny Ade...one of my must haves after this weekend.
To download torrents of flac files, you'll need utorrent or a similar program (just google utorrent). To play them, you'll need a player that plays them. I use MediaMonkey, other people use foobar or VLC Media Player.
To play them on your mp3 player, you'll need to convert them. I use a two-step process to do this, which is probably not the most efficient: Use Trader's Little Helper to convert them to WAV, and use CDex to convert them to MP3.
And clearly you aren't a rapist (I hope) but the way you pop into any thread where a woman happens to be lamenting her lack of ride to Bonnaroo and tell them to come hop on your bus sounds extremely rapey.
Music fuels us as we continue to conquer the battlefields of boredom and artistic freedom.
