I’m a music hoarder. I try to hoard every live audio recording I come across, some bootlegs, and other things. I am a part of a music hoarding group, that works together to ensure these items are catalogued and preserved.
I have several hoarding projects going on, which I will release here as I complete them.
Note: In order to access them, you will need to reach out to me in order to receive the directions and access creds.
archive AT this domain. Please put in the body of the email the list of archives you would like access to. Asking for access to all of them is a massive undertaking and not one that I will fulfill as each archive is uploaded using a different encryption key.
All of my archives are stored offline on external hard drives in Pelican Cases, as well as online in an encrypted format. Multiple members of the music hoarding group I’m a part of also have replica copies of most of these archives.
Transmission Impossible Bootlegs (53GB) - Transmission Impossible is a radio series of bootlegs covering a wide range of artists. I cannot take credit for sourcing this archive, I’m just hosting it here as another copy.
Led Zeppelin Bootlegs (407GB) - This archive contains 281 individual Led Zeppelin bootlegged shows. Once again, I cannot take credit for this archive, just hosting it since it’s part of my collection.
- DMB Archive (Ants Marching, ~1.4TB) - I’m working on my Dave Matthews archive to make it accessible. It’s far from complete, but it is quite large!
- David W Niven Jazz (~1TB) - This is a pretty cool series of recordings which was meticulously collected, compiled and narrated by David W Niven. This was pulled from Archive.org. According to IA, the size of the archive is 637GB, but that doesn’t account for all of the various formats. I’ve included Lossy and Lossless versions in this archive.
Archiving In Progress
- Etree (estimate - ~121TB) - This bad boy is a long term project of mine and will take quite a bit of time to complete. I will be releasing it in multiple parts. First, will be organized and released by date into multiple archives. Second, will be organized and released by artist.
