    WOW!
    What a haul!
    Thanks for the tip. I looked at the site for almost two hours. I don't know where to start.

    Too bad there's not downloads there... for anyone interested in all kinds of free legal, live downloadable music, be sure to check out the Live Music archives at www.archive.org

    http://www.archive.org/details/etree

    I've not bought a CD in 4 years and still haven't scratched the surface

    Although the Dead recently changed their download policy on soundboard recordings (http://www.archive.org/details/GratefulDead) there's still some good ones available at Nugs.net, along with a great selection of other classic jambands

    http://stash.nugs.net/stash.asp

    Again, all free, all legal, all downloadable

    There's a lot in all of those links - lots to go through

    A few of my recommended listening by some of the better bands you might not know are:

    String Cheese Incident - a blend of jamband, jazz, and bluegrass (on both nugs and archive)

    The Radiators (archive.org and nugs.net) - classic New Orleans funk rock - and they are playing at the Ocean Mist in Matunuck later this month

    Mr. Blotto (archive.org) - Chicago's best jamband - great originals but there's hardly a cover from the 70s these guys don't play, and there's lots of great soundboard shows for downloading

    Just heard an amazing version of "I Know You Rider" (1971) and we've moved on to an Incredible String Band track I don't think I've ever heard before ("Worlds They Rise and Fall", 1968).

    Absolutely fantastic! The years fall away -- I can't thank you enough!

    That's a band I you've recommended before that I need to check out... unfortunately it doesn't seem like there's all that much live and downloadable on the internet

    Not sure if you would like them. They were a Scottish traditional folk duo who went for the hippy thing in a big way (sort of Donovan and Pentangle meets Country Joe ... ) But I was a BIG fan when I was sixteen, seventeen.

    I believe archive.org is the online repository of etree.org

    http://www.etree.org/

    Etree was essentially a website that would allow for a tree of tape traders, from when we shared music the old fashioned way, "seeding" copied cassette tapes for a tree of music.

    There's still plenty of trading going on and that website can help put you in touch with someone who has a concert you want - traded via snail mail or ftp servers

    also there's some helpful software there such as tools to read and convert .shn files - a large but lossless compression tool and the preferred way for hardcore traders to save music files so they won't corrupt over time

    Furthurnet is still up and running, with both mp3s, shns, and also plenty of concert videos available for trade

    http://www.furthurnet.org/index.php

    It's a simple software platform that's pretty idiot proof - somewhat like bit torrent peer to peer sharing - the downside is you're dependent on others to keep sharing their files, then you need to share yours for a given period of time

    there was a great site called sharingthegroove.org for awhile, also using a bit torrent file sharing, but I think too many people posted commercial music there and it got shut down

    gdlive.org was another good place - it too is gone

    Because there's so much free and legal on archive.org, there might be others out there now but I'm not up on them

    Actually, I just decided to search and did find that etree users are into bit torrent file sharing now - a list of concerts for trade/download is at http://bt.etree.org but apparently they've been having some technical difficulties

    Another great one just discovered is http://www.dimeadozen.org/ - again all free, all legal, all downloadable for buring to cd or mp3 players

    http://shnflac.net/ is another - many of which are really just torrent trackers - again dependent on traders keeping their torrents up and running so you can download
