This is an excellent sounding show and there are two songs that I have no clue what their names may be? I've never heard them in any other Feist show either. Plus, Feist does "Past in Present" too which I haven't heard live in a long, long time from her. This is one of her longer shows on this tour and is about 20 minutes longer than her show I saw and recorded in Dallas about four months earlier. And that was a long show too and one of the best concerts I've ever seen!
NOTE: The very last track in the show had a sector boundary error and I padded it using TLH. As far as lossiness goes, I'm not sure on this show now? It will take more in-depth analysis I'm still learning to do to determine if this show has any lossy MPEG characteristics or not?
Trader's Little Helprer (TLH) is not a good tool for true determination of lossy properties unless you see "...100% CDDA..." or "...95% mpeg..." on all tracks across the board in the test results. If you get results from TLH like the ones I got in my testing of the files for this show, it's a 50/50 chance it is or isn't lossless material you're working with. See the TLH CDDA Test text file I created and included in the download for the results.
I'm going ahead and uploading this show since I got it on Dime (which doesn't allow lossy material thankfully but it doesn't mean a few can't get through) and it is reportedly from the mini disc recorder master source. I know on my own recordings I've made with a Sony MZ-70 mini disc recorder over the years, at times, I've had shows I definitely recorded as 44.1 kHz/16 bit WAV files (lossless/CD quality) show up as possibly lossy in the TLH CDDA test I did on them. I know for a fact I've never recorded any show using the mp3 (or any lossy) codec. But TLH, a superb tool for many things, is not a good tool for accurate CDDA/MPEG testing. Too many factors, such as FM radio broadcasts or EQ work, can cause you to get false results many times in TLH.
Personally, I believe this is likely a lossless (CD quality) show because the person who recorded it would be risking losing their Dime membership if they lied and posted an mp3 version encoded as FLAC. And since the person claiming to have recorded it posted it, it's not likely they'd do this. Plus, as I mentioned, I've seen my own recordings with a mini disc recorder do this same thing. But at the same time, I cannot say with 100% certainty either that this is a lossless or lossy show because I didn't record it and I'm still learning to make that type of determination with Audacity. Either way, the show sounds good and doesn't have any lossy property sounds I can detect by ear. And many of the tracks did test as 100% CDDA too while others tested different percentages CDDA and three tested as MPEG with high percentages. Who knows? If you are able to confirm or deny if this source is lossless, CDDA quality, please do and leave a comment. Otherwise, I'll be checking it again in the future once I've learned more on how to do so. This is another reason I despise mp3 encoded material. Prior to their "intrusion" into music and audio fields, everything was lossless and no testing needed to even be done!
I hope you enjoy the show...
