More of those free 78 record .mp3's available

original thread: [forums.macresource.com]

I don't know how long FileDropper will keep these files hosted, or if there is any kind of bandwidth limitation, but so far it's been great as a free service goes. I had trouble with getting Firefox 3 to upload files bigger than 500MB, but switching to Safari I have had no problems, so some of the more recent sections will be combined into one larger .zip file. This makes it easier for me to upload and hopefully similarly convenient for you to download. I'll try to keep them around 1GB each from now on.

"0-9" section, 17 songs, 46MB [www.filedropper.com]
"A" section, 212 songs, 577MB [www.filedropper.com]
"B" section, 265 songs, 698MB [www.filedropper.com]
"C" section, 208 songs, 563MB [www.filedropper.com]
"D" section, 181 songs, 471MB [www.filedropper.com]
"E" section, 45 songs, 115MB [www.filedropper.com]

newly uploaded:
"F" section, 98 songs, 252MB [www.filedropper.com]
"G" section, 77 songs, 202MB [www.filedropper.com]
"H" section, 178 songs, 470MB [www.filedropper.com]

still pending upload:
"I" section, 366 songs, 952MB
"J, K & L" sections, 94 + 45 +174 = 313 songs, 850MB
"M & N" sections, 314 songs, 836MB
"OPQR" sections, 337 songs, 890MB
"S" section, 378 songs, 994MB
"T" section, 455 songs, 1.17GB
"U, V, W, Y & Z" section, 32 + 11 +206 + 81+ 2 = 332 songs, 862MB
(there were no X song titles)

I will update this page with the links to the rest of the files as I get them uploaded.

If you have trouble downloading a particular file I would just try again the next day, there may be some limits to how many people can download at a time, I really don't know. If something absolutely doesn't work for anyone I can re-upload at a later date.

I believe that's what I'm running into. Since you've been posting these, I'm having about 50% success ratio when trying your links. I find that if I try later in the day, or wait until the next day, I can grab them without problem.

Thanks again for the effort Mike!

These are great, downloaded a bunch. Just wish the ID3 tags were formatted better, they're all along the lines of:

AFTERIVECALLEDYOUSWEETHEART_JohnnyMarvin_VICTOR_20984-B

It's gonna take a LONG time to do this.. or I guess since the fields are separated by underscores I could write an Applescript... hmmm...

Yeah, unfortunately the guy posted them just that way on his site. Only one or two have the artist actually in the artist field. Seems strange that he would go to all the trouble of typing in all that information and not do it "properly".

UPDATE:

So I haven't been able to get any of the remaining .zip files to upload. The site returns some weird errors, just won't do it.

So I am going to make smaller files again I guess. It seemed to like around 500MB.
