The Go-Betweens:The Acoustic Stories (the MP3's)


I assume many of you, if you are go-betweens' fans, already know the "That striped sunlight sound"DVD, which is divided into two sections: one the proper concert, and two the Acoustic Stories part, where Robert and Grant talked about their career and performed 11 songs out of it in splendid stripped-down acoustic versions. I had been looking for the MP3's of that acoustic performance for a long time but with no luck, then I finally rolled up my sleeves, found the right software and did it myself: it took me some time so I really hope you appreciate it.
I have also decided to create two zip files: one with the "complete"acoustic stories (including all the talks inbetweens songs), and one songs-only.
All of it @ 192k.

Tracklist:
  1. Lee Remick
  2. Cattle and Cane
  3. Part Company
  4. Bachelor Kisses
  5. Head Full of Steam
  6. Bye Bye Price
  7. Dive for Your Memory
  8. German Farm House
  9. Too Much of One Thing
  10. Here Comes the City
  11. Finding You
The Acoustic Stories
The "Complete" Acoustic Stories

Thanks so much! When I bought the DVD, I was dismayed that there was not an audio version of the acoustic sessions. I appreciate the effort it took. I am also curious as to what software you used to do it because I may like to try it sometime.

For Matthias: I've used Free DVD mp3 Ripper, you can find it for free @ http://www.jodix.com/
Also the video converter for ipod is good!
(But actually after ripping them I've pumped up the volume -because it was rather low- through Audacity. Which is not for free, and it's a very useful audio editor if you make music.

PS
I'm really glad you all like the post so much, by the way.

Wonderful stuff! Great, timeless songs. Hadn't realised what a great song Lee Remick was.

Thanks a lot for this upload! I have the DVD and was also sad that the accoustic versions were not on a CD like the rest of the DVD was. Good job!

I'd also like to thank my sister for sending me this link :-)

Love all around,

TTTTT
