The 'masters' are mp3 files @ 128 kbps, each a bulk rip of one of the 18 MDs. This is a shame as it means a lossy source (MD) was re-encoded in a lossy format (mp3), further degrading the audio. Also, there are no track splits and no documentation other than scans of the actual discs. A fantastic listen, anyway!

I thought they were 192kbps? Quite a difference in real terms :)

I like that it's been done like this - just a dump of stuff for people to pour over for a few weeks. The source and quality is part of this. This was all positively hifi in 1997.

You just know it will be bootlegged in a more convenient form soon
