Perhaps I should not post this one, but while Queenzone is now filled with torrents from this 2005 tour, and we probably all are downloading them as maniacs, my thoughts went back to quite some time ago.
Once there was quite a heavy debating going on about the quality of bootlegs. Lossless, no mp3, the trading pool had to be kept clean.

Times they are a-changing. We want it all and we want it now. And that's ok by me. (I know, sharing and trading are two different things)
Not all the offered bootlegs of this tour are as good as we would like them to be. But the main issue is that more and more people started sharing I believe. That's making Queenzone a good place to be.

I've just converted the Leipzig mp3's to wav, seperated the tracks and burned them onto a double cd. This one's really good!

Thanks all for sharing, guys and gals.

I know your wav files are for your own use, but why mention the "evil" conversion. This will be sure to get the purists' undies in a bunch.

Personally, I find it easier to keep the mp3 files as is and play on a mp3 compatible player, than convert every download mp3 to wav.

I love listening to mp3's in my car. Especially nice for road trips.

well, I did that to be able to seperate the tracks in a soundwave prog. (the Leipzig show was shared as 4 mp3-files)
And indeed, it's for my own use.
