  2. GNR Demo Tape Soundcloud

    No worries at all man, thanks for the reply. I am going to try to get an answer if they care about us sharing the full 24/96 FLAC. If they don't we will put it on torrent sites and all that and directly PM whoever wants them. Fingers crossed! By the way, I like your YouTube channel, so much great stuff!

    lol, true! Nah, I'm just messing around. As long as the band doesn't have an issue with it, and so far they don't I suppose, then it's cool with me of course!
  5. GNR Demo Tape Soundcloud

    Yes, I have since been told the same. Well I guess I can go back to being perturbed then at the person that posted it on YouTube!
  6. You guys need to read my update post closer, lol. I was wondering why no one mentioned it, thought for a moment that I was the only one that didn't know he called himself that. Here it is hand written by Izzy himself on a GNR demo tape: http://www.troccolitm.com/TapeDemoIzzy.html And here it is typed out in their first newsletter: http://www.troccolitm.com/1stNews.html Note that Steven is also referred to as Bam-Bam. You can also see that here on this early fan club info sheet: http://www.troccolitm.com/EarlyFanClubSheet.html Very cool, right? That is their 5th, and second to last, newsletter. I posted the link to the first one above. Here are the others: 2nd newsletter: http://www.troccolitm.com/2ndNews.html 3rd newsletter: http://www.troccolitm.com/3rdNews.html 4th newsletter: http://www.troccolitm.com/4thNews.html 6th (and last) newsletter: http://www.troccolitm.com/6thNews.html
  7. Major Collection Update!!!

    I have that Tokyo shirt! Wow, what a much clearer image on that Cleveland shirt
  8. Major Collection Update!!!

    Unreal. If only I was there and bought one! I have no idea when I don't have the shirt. Another thing to track down!

    The transfer was done by a pro w/ pro equipment. The raw files I have are in fact 24/96 FLAC. SoundCloud auto downgrades to 128, especially if you check the box not allowing downloads. Even if I didn't check that I heard that SoundCloud only allows downloads in 128 as well.
  10. GNR Demo Tape Soundcloud

    So I have since found out that SoundCloud only allows you to upload in 128kbps Mp3 format for streaming purposes. I think this is true regardless of options, but supposedly if the uploader allows downloads the quality is better. That doesn't really matter anyway since I chose the option that doesn't allow downloads. And, from what I understand and have learned, it will only allow a maximum download of the same quality if not less. Therefore I suppose my entire argument here was a moot point! Glad all of you have liked the tracks, imagine what they sound like in full 24/96 FLAC!
  11. GNR Demo Tape Soundcloud

    I won't say who had them or what they were exactly, but I will say that The General was not one of the songs sadly. This person did not have Atlas Shrugged either
  12. Major Collection Update!!!

    Could you post this again please? I was gone for a while so I could not see it and now the link seems to have been disabled. Thanks!
  13. GNR Demo Tape Soundcloud

    How do you figure it's fair game? I posted it on Soundcloud for a reason, read the 3rd post above. Don't get me wrong, on a personal level I don't care and have nothing against you or Frans. And I have no idea if GNR will care. But if they do, they might not care as long as it's not downloadable. Of course there are ways of getting around it, but just because you can doesn't mean that you should. On the flip side if they do care and make it all get taken down, or even if someone just finds a runaround like Frans did and is able to download (in original quality) well then you can understand if no one does anything like this in the future when they come across gems like this. For example I was privy to listen to unreleased GNR tracks in someone's hotel room during the last residency. We also got to see pro shot footage from Puerto Rico (2009 or 2010) and pro shot footage of a soundcheck by the band with either Tommy or Bumble singing mot of the songs. It was all with the understanding that no was recording it to be released later. Hopefully you see what I am saying here. Also when tweaked are you "improving" it really? The raw sound is about the experience of it. You can argue that cds improved the sound of vinyl (I don't mean the technical side of things, but I ma talking about the hiss, etc., those cool weird little sounds that happen when you play vinyl), but again it makes the experience different (keep in mind this comment is coming from someone that was raised on cds, I have never even owned a record player). Live Era is another example where the audio was tweaked, and many have a problem with it. Personally I don't but I can see their side. There was a reason I had a professional transfer this at the highest quality possible. We could have tweaked it as well but that betrays the rawness of it IMO.

    You are welcome. But, sorry, there is a reason I put these on Soundcloud after all as I believe estrangedtwat pointed out. On Soundcloud (with the right settings selected when uploading) you can theoretically prevent people from downloading the tracks. If you know some trick to get around that do not post that here and ruin this for everyone. Bottom line, I am not looking for a lawsuit thank you very much. So no, I am sorry, but I will not be sharing these files with anyone directly I have that demo tape too! And you are most welcome! That's correct. Izzy went by Stranded before he went by Stradlin. I would have been hesitant at first as well, however I also own the first newsletter GNR put out. In that newsletters Izzy is referred to as Izzy Standed and Steven is referred to as Bam Bam. They must have ditched those nicknames early on. Here is the newsletter: http://www.troccolitm.com/1stNews.html I also own an early fan club info sheet referring to Steven as Bam-Bam. I wish I knew what it was torn from. Here it is: http://www.troccolitm.com/EarlyFanClubSheet.html
  15. Major Collection Update!!!

    I would love to open a museum to the public! Perhaps one day! As for the shirt, it appears we may have an answer to that. But I do wonder the same thing about Nashville 2026, Cincinatti 2016 (pretty sure but not positive), Oralndo United 2016, Adelaide shark design (again pretty sure but not positive), Tel Aviv, Santiago, and Las Vegas Prayer. Good question. The price was right on eBay so I bought, wondering the same thing at the time. Here's the thing. The tag is the same tag as the official Halloween shirts they sold, plus the objective of bootlegging something is to make $. Either you make very few and charge a lot or make a lot and charge way less. I think I bought it for $25 maybe, and I haven't seen any others. All of that added up tells me that it was either limited for GNR camp/crew/etc. or it was a test run that they decided not to go with. Those are theories of course, I do not know for sure That was from another collector who got it from someone behind the scenes. Very limited for VIPs (not the sold VIP packages), band inner circle, etc. Great question, I mean likely at least $50K, I would bet probably double that. I wish I kept more accurate records the entire time!
