Jason, Thanks so much, it took a while, but I've downloaded the lot and will spend the rest of the year listening to it all as it's nearly all new to me!
Any advice on how to convert the shn format to mp3s or burn em as audio CDs? (which I can then rip mp3s from!Must.....have.....mp3s....for....car....and phone!!!!!)

Hi fellow fans!

Come with me my friends, back to a simpler time, before bittorent was ubiquitous and websites allowed you to host huge files for free, back to when FTP was the main, best option for exchanging and sharing files...

I present - The City of Dreams FTP Server (RIP) Dump:

Most conributions to the CoD were in mp3 format, but there are a couple of shn albums in there. Hey, it was 7 years ago after all The only thing from the server I've removed are the .shns for TNotBiTH, since that has since been (thankfully! finally!) released on CD. Apologies to *nix users for the Megaupload site, I just don't have enough outbound bandwidth to seed meaningfully at the moment. Perhaps if someone with such a connection were to start one...

Anyway, share and enjoy!

I'm so surprised there's no replies or even a thank you.

I recently downloaded this hefty collection in college and all of it is pure gold. There's so much material that I've never even heard of. Massive thanks! I look forward to downloading more live shows in the forum.
