Music Files

The Real Audio files were recorded from CD to wave files. The wave files were then encoded to Real Audio format using Real Encoder 2.0. Now RealProducer and RealSystym Authoring Kit are available. If the wave files were re-encoded using these tools, they might be smaller in file size. I may do that in the future. In the meantime, these possibly larger than necessary files are available for your listening pleasure.

The MP3 files were encoded using FreeRIP MP3. It is shareware available from your favorite shaware sites. MP3 files are larger than Real Audio files, but MP3 seems to be the more popular format.

Note (05/17/2006): I am on Comcast.net now; have been for quite some time. Currently Comcast does not allow home web servers to be accessable from outside the Comcast network. I'm hoping that can change soon.

http://71.231.27.202/bc/ is currently DOWN. The cover songs MP3 files are not available at this time. If my home server were up, you would have been automatically redirected there.

Cover Comparisons

All the cover songs and the orginal artist versions are below. They are of varying quality, but are useful for comparisons. Enjoy and please remember to purchase the Big Country albums. Most of the covers come from their Under Cover album and their Eclectic album. I've also included a few notes about several of the songs.

Disclaimer: The cover songs MP3 files comprise about 180MB of disk space and therefore are only available from my home server at http://71.231.27.202/bc/. My ISP is worried about disk space and bandwidth. My home server sits in my closet off my den. It is on Comcast.net. Since the server is in my house, it is often turned off at night to reduce the noise in the house. Also, because it is on Comcast.net, the upload speeds are throttled to a specific bandwidth. The cover songs MP3 files may transfer slower than you expect.
