Hi. I used to use this blog a lot more than i do now. I don't agree with much of what i've posted here, but such is the nature of time. :) My instagram & facebook are likely to be more up to date.

the hardest working blogger: whole albums

>> Friday, March 7, 2008



this person has put a lot of effort into putting a lot of albums on the web.

a ton of four disc (some ten disc!) sets, live shows by artists you know, and re-issue compilations.

i've gotten most of the ethiopiques series (highly recommended!), brian eno, philip glass, obscure velvet underground shows, beautiful folk records, turkish psychedelia, sitar beat, doo-wop, can, and album afer album of old psych/garage/pre-british invasion rock comps. but there is TONS more. some electronic stuff, avant garde, motown, rolling stones, james brown...

just browse through the archives at the bottom of the blog. some of the really old stuff isn't up anymore, but some still is (like the "perfumed garden" compilation from december 2005 i'm downloading now). a lot of the older posts use rapidshare (which only lets you download 100 megs every hour or so) but the new ones tend to have stuff in several locations to make it easier to download faster. if you need help figuring out how to unpack his archives, comment, and i'll help.

a brief order of operations i would suggest to get the albums is:

make sure you have unrarx (for mac) or winrar (for windows)
download all the parts
extract the .rar files by opening the first one
the password for all of them is: posted_first_at_chocoreve

hey, thanks for pointing me at this, there's so much great music I don't know where to begin!

try the ethiopiqes series (it's all here particularly disc 1 for funky/50s/middle-eastern/saxaphone vibes or disc 11 for weird string gurgling and voice meditations.

also try searching in google for chocoreve + an artist. yes's close to the edge is on the october 2007 page... the track "total mass retain" is ridonculous as mr. mulhearn would say.
