Is this overkill on the sources? The completeist in me wants everything, but the realist realizes than some sources are pretty much the same and it starts to waste my time and space putting up sources nobody wants. Let me know what you think in the comments – Mat

    1. Ah dangit, how did I miss that? Got in too big a hurry trying to upload a bunch of 70s show and didn’t pay attention. I’m working on cleaning all the uploads up now. Thanks.

  1. You might consider uploading a good source and offering other sources. That way if there is enough demand for the other sources then you could upload them as well. I tend to pass up on poor quality recordings unless they are very rare or the only thing that is available. Early dylan in poor quality is all there is at times as an example. A rating helps for each show. Or you might be able incorporate a rating system into your blog where users could vote on the quality of the shows.

    1. I love this idea, but the truth is I just don’t have time to listen to everything and make that judgment. I post 2-3 shows a day on average which is what? 3-6 hours or more of music. Sometimes I listen to that much in a day but between work, family, podcasts, audiobooks, TV and such like I don’t usually get that kind of dedicated listening time.

      Sometimes I think I should slow down the number of posts so that I do have time to listen and write something about each show. I’ve even tried it a time or two, but it never works. My obsessive nature pushes me to post more shows, not less and coordinating the listening with writing something about a show when I’m ready to post just doesn’t work for me.

      I suppose I could give shows with multiple sources a quick listen and make notes on which sounds best but then I have crap ears and a crap music system and I don’t really trust my judgment on that end.

      I do appreciate comments on which source sounds best. So I guess I’m saying that with The Midnight Cafe you get plenty of quantity and you’ll have to sort out the quality for yourself 😉

  2. I personally think the more sources the better everyone taste differ and one person that likes say source A ,another person might hate that source and prefer source B

    1. Theoretically I like this idea as well, but it does add a lot more work into what I do and a whole lot of space on the server. I generally grab soundboards when available or make a guess as to which is the more complete and better sounding audience recording (which is guesswork but there are some tapers whose work I tend to trust). Eventually I’d like to back and grab every source possible, but that isn’t always feasible for the time being.

      Thanks for your input.
