I first posted this in June of 2011. The following are notes I made back then. When I originally started posting bootlegs I was only doing lossy MP3s. Oh how times have changed.

I decided to test the idea of uploading both lossless and lossy versions of the same show. It worked out alright. Uploading lossless is really simple as there is no labeling to do, but obviously the files are much bigger and thus it took much longer to upload, which would severely limit the number of shows a day I can upload. I don’t suspect that I’ll try it again, except maybe with really popular artists such as Van Morrison or Bob Dylan.
