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
