I would have left the file set intact and I would have just uploaded this one "as is" because the work done to create this file set originally was done right. The tracks were even embedded with metadata showing the song titles and other pertinent information. But there was one problem unfortunately. There were sector boundary errors on each disc and I had to fix those. And once an edit or repair like that is made, all of the other work (such as embedding the metadata, creating ffp and md5 files, etc) has to be redone because the information is stripped and changed up and the checksums will not match up to the original file set anymore once the repairs are made. What a bummer! It sure would have saved me a lot of time not having to do all of that stuff.
And what a shame it is for the person who originally did all of thi work too. They must have spent a lot of time preparing the files. I'm not sure why they didn't catch the sector boundary errors (SBE's) that rendered their extra work and effort useless. I've made mistakes and forgotten steps just as everyone else who takes time to do things right has too. And I imagine with the work the person did, they knew better too and likely just overlooked it by accident. But I still thank them for their attempt and hard work! Besides, the most important part of the file set (aka the lossless music files) were all there and without those nothing would have been possible! So kudos and thank you to the party that made these available for fans like us :-)

The artwork for this show has a 10 page booklet reportedly. But it wasn't in the file set I have. In this upload, just the the artwork for each volume is included. That is pretty much the front and back covers. I'm just adding the Volume One art to the sample image in this post and the other two volumes are in the download. If I had the 10 page booklet from the 5 CD set I'd add it too. But I don't.
This is a very enjoyable set of CD's to listen to and I have been listening the past 3 hours to them today and still am only a little over halfway done.
I hope you enjoy the unreleased Hendrix studio recordings...
