Right, time to try my luck again! I would love if anybody could share Digital Queen Archive's 2 disc set "Complete BBC Sessions 1973-1977".

Of course this would be minus the two sessions which were released as "At the BBC".

Thank you!

I haven't had time to check. There was a thread recently (someone posted BBC archives) and Bob was saying that we only have lossy versions of some of the tracks. As always, best to check with The Man... :)

Be really good to sort this out though - those sessions are magnificent.

I'm talking about the version of Harris session which is on that precise bootleg, of course, so why should I ask Bob ? Could you please check the session ? It's a question of 10 minutes and you would help me a lot with the information.
And you don't need to tell ME about the BBC sessions :-)

I've not found a way to tell for sure if something from so long ago is lossy so am not confident in giving you an answer either way. Looking for a drop-off above 16kHz (when they used dyanmic mics and tape that don't record those high frequencies) seems a very innaccurate test to me. But they certainly don't sound lossy.

So, you should ask Bob because he will almost certainly have this and/or know the lineage behind it.

And according to Brooks there are 3 Bob Harris sessions (25 july 73, 3 april 74, 16 oct 74), so it sounds like we both need to learn something!

I'm happy to post the tracks you want on mediafire if you want them.

Actually I think there are two of them. The first one had nothing to do with Bob AFAIK. why the hell did I use singular ???
If you could find the time for uploading the 2 sessionS, I would be grateful :)
Or maybe just use some software, like audiochecker

I'll up them to mediafire and send you the link asap. Can you pm me your email address to kittsuk *at* hotmail *dot* com please? I don't want to distribute these if they are lossy.

I've sent my address your way. Thanks for all the effort you're putting into this - it's a very bright spot in what has been an otherwise terrible week for me!
