2010 Resolution: Preservation

One of my goals in 2010 is to finally get a huge external hard drive and put all 220+ live Blur shows of mine (which are all on CDR) into .flac format and loaded onto an external drive. I want to do this for reasons: to have backups in case anything should happen to my CDRs, 2) to preserve the audio long-term, as CDRs won't last forever. I feel it's vitally important to have a central repository for Blur's live history and want to work very hard to make this a reality.



  1. 220 is a huge number, I'm really impressed! Very important to keep Blur history somewhere, you're totally right to make backups.
    Maybe the blur fan community can help you up on that too ;)

  2. Hope they can help! I'm constantly working to uncover new recordings...of course, any donations are welcome!

  3. By "donations" I meant new recordings, not money! Just wanted to clear that up!
