Texas International Pop Festival: 1969-08-30, 1969-08-31, & 1969-09-01 Lewisville, TX (FLAC_SB_13 CD)

This is a large file set of a historic festival, the Texas International Pop Festival, that started today 46 years ago in an area north of Dallas, Texas.  There were lots of bands that were famous in the day (and today) that played this three day event and this was just two weeks after Woodstock too.

Rather than take the time it would take for me to do what I usually do with files before uploading them, I kept it simple and easier to get done today.  I shortened some of the folder names and rearranged a few things to make the paths to the files not as long as they originally were.  You can only have 260 characters in a file path and when you add in the "C:\..." that leads up to the folder you are storing files in, it needed to be shortened to unzip.  When you unzip these files be sure to do it in a short folder name like "0" or something similar for everything to work right.  You can rename folders later after you unzip the files if you want to.

I didn't name the tracks but I did convert them from their SHN file format to FLAC since SHN is one many aren't as familiar with and no program I know of will play an SHN file anyhow.  FLAC is a much more universally recognized file compressing format for keeping files lossless.

I'm going to copy and paste the detailed information file in this download here because I don't have time to retype all of this information here today.  And since the festival began today and I haven't gotten these shows uploaded in the past years on the festival's anniversary, I'm doing it this way today.

Some of the shows closer to the end of the CD volumes may have been lossy sourced.  See the enclosed "TLH CDDA Test" file I included to see which ones failed the MPEG test and may be lossy.  Most files tested fine and not lossy but some didn't.  It doesn't mean they are lossy either.  A frequency and spectrum analysis really needs to be done to see if that is the case.

The sound ranges but most are excellent soundboard recordings.  There are upgrades to some of these shows I know.  For instance, the Led Zeppelin show on the second night has a much better copy I've uploaded here in the past.  But to be completely honest, I've never listened to all of the 10 hours of music in this 3 days of music download.  And not every artist or all of each show is in this.  Grand Funk Railroad only has one song from their set here.  The information I copied and pasted tells how the music volumes are broken up into complete shows and partial shows in the 13 CD's and if you wanted to you could easily put more than one show on some discs too if you decide to burn the audio to discs.

There is a 20 page booklet scanned and included too with images, artifacts, etc of the festival.  It is in its own folder and a cool piece of history to look at.

I'm sure there is a lot more I could say about the recordings and the event, but I'm going to stop here because I want to get this uploaded and most people have probably heard of the festival if they like any of the many artists that played it (especially collectors).

I hope you enjoy the shows...
