mp3 flac mp3 flac mp3 flac...


Good Morning Folks, hope all started well into the weekend. In the last weeks a lot of requests come in and a lot who asked for power pop artists. I think i have a quite good amount of power pop music on my external HDDs. But i think  around 90% in mp3 only. Usually i prefer to post albums in Flac & mp3. The original idea, as i started the blog, was to post only in Flac. But after a while i perceived that a lot of the readers (two-thirds) of this blog would love to download in mp3.
Mostly i posted since then in both formats (if possible). But time goes on and i get a lot of requests for albums i only have in mp3. I have decided now also post files that i only have in mp3. This concern mainly power pop music. I hope everyone understand the decision. And for no one anything get lost due to this.
I would be glad to see your opinions in the comments.
Enjoy your lazy Sunday afternoon

  1. Thank you for your powerpop music. I do prefer FLAC files. I can always convert to mp3 if I need to. I understand why some would only want mp3 files since the size is much smaller, but I prefer FLAC. If possible, could you reconsider your decision to post only mp3 and continue to post mp3 and FLAC (if you have them)? Thank you.

    1. Hello des, i believe you misunderstand me. I will always post the stuff i have in flac. I talk about that stuff i have only in mp3. In the past i don't want to post this files because i had no lossless files of this albums, too. But more and more people asked for stuff i have only in mp3. Now i decided to post this stuff, too.No matter if i have it in flac or not. Puuh, it's hard to explain in a foreign language for me.

  2. Hi Frank,
    Thank you for a fantastic blog. I appreciate how much time you put into this. Honestly I have downloaded both formats and however you share it I thank you. The choice for me though is mp3. The flac files eat up too much of my hard drives. Usually if it comes in flac form I convert it to mp3 just to save space. I will download in any format you share and convert it if i have to. So thanks again for your work. Your blog is a daily stop for me. Thanks again, Jack

  3. First, I just want to tell you how much I appreciate your hard work and generosity in sharing the music. Thank you. Personally, I like to have things in lossless quality but if that is not always possible, then mp3 is certainly better than not having it at all. Thanks again.

  6. I love your blog, and I'm grateful for new music whatever the format.

    My personal preference is mp3, but I can always convert FLAC files.

    Thanks for all you do!

  7. Thank you for your fantastic blog. I have been voraciously listening to what you have posted. I prefer FLAC as well, when available. It is easy enough to downgrade it to mp3 if necessary, but lossless always wins in my book. Hard drives are dirt cheap these days.

  8. Hi there,

    I'm a regular visitor to your blog, and some of the discoveries I've made through your posts have been fantastic. I too prefer the MP3 format, mostly because FLAC files take up a lot of space on my hard-drive. I do have a FLAC to MP3 converter, however, so it's not a problem if you upload in FLAC only.

  11. I prefer Flac but it's your call. I'm happy either way.
    You're much too good to us to complain!

  12. I say post them. I don't mind high-quality (320) MP3s. But even if they are of lower quality, post 'em anyway. Most of the artists you post are ones I'm not familiar with; I would much rather have the opportunity to discover a great new album than to never know about it because you were hesitant to post due to quality. If I like something I hear I will go buy it!

  13. Hi Frank,
    I use to prefer music in flac, but I would be happy to enjoy good music in mp3 format. I have particularly valued bands like Lolas or Sneetches. If you have only in mp3 I'm very glad if you post it.
    Thank you for your precious blog, Ricky.

  14. Hello Folks and Friends, thank you all for your comments and opinions. I think also it's better to post it in mp3 as no one can listen to it and it disappear under layers of dust :-). Have a nice day

  15. Frank, cannot thank you enough for all of the great bands you have sent our way. I prefer the smaller file sizes of MP3. And my ears are fairly shot at my advanced age anyway. : )

  16. FLAC is preferred, but MP3 is OK, too.

    THANK YOU for all of your efforts.
