Does anyone out there know how to download these tracks into FLAC format and share them here?

I have heard this before in a bootleg, but is nice to hear it again.

What would be the point of putting those into FLAC  format?  What format are they in at the moment?

I sincerely doubt they're in anything close to lossless, but anytime you convert a track to MP3, you lose quality. The point, then, would be preserving whatever quality they have instead of ripping them to MP3 and stripping off more than what's already lost.

Er, if they're mp3 at the moment, how would you be removing anything further by re-mp3ing it?

I was under the impression that mp3 worked by removing the low and high frequencies that people can't hear - so doing it twice won't remove anything extra, will it?

In fact, if they ARE mp3 at the moment (which they almost certainly are judging by how quickly they stream), then FLAC'ing them creates two problems:

1.  It will mislead people into thinking they're lossless.
2.  You'll introduce "noise" in those frequencies that aren't present in the current mp3.

I was under the impression that more data is removed every time you convert from lossless to MP3 or MP3 to MP3, kind of like how copying a videotape results in a loss of data every time.
