I am so happy to have found your blog! I knew the Vol.1 of this series, but I had no idea there was also a Vol.2 out.

This is so great!
I can't believe my luck!
Thank you so much!!!

Hello again,

meanwhile I have started downloading this set, and I found there is a mistake on CD4: track 5 (Faust) is reported as "corrupt".

In your tracklist above you made a mistake in the list, you left track 3 out and continued with Faust as Nr.4, but the left out track is actually in the download.

So I think you just made a typing mistake here in the blog, not in the upload. But I wonder what happened with that track. Can you check that? Is that really corrupted, or should I just try it again?

For people with a fast connection that question seems weird, I know, but downloading a file beyond 15 MB needs strategic planning on my side, as my husband's downloading capacities (in the office) are very limited. At home I have a dial-up computer with 28 kbps, that will download a 3 MB file in 15 minutes. (Only to give you an idea...)

Please let me know whether that track (Faust) is really corrupted or whether it was just a glitch during the download. In the latter case a new download should fix it.

P.S. I forgot to mention how happy I am about the great artwork you have added to the music.

I have the first set already, but I will download that CD1 of the first set as well, only to get the great pictures. I assume it is inside CD1, isn't it? It was here.

Really great!
Thank you so much!

This is freakin' awesome!! Is there any way you could re-post disk #4 -- there's some kind of problem with it...
Love your entire site!!!

Hello again! Guess who has broadband now (since this morning)! Yay, me! So I can download all myself at home now! Super!

I have noticed there was a mistake on CD4 (track 5 is reported as corrupted), and so I tried to dl it again, thinking, maybe something went wrong during the dl before. But no, same mistake comes up again, and Phil above had it too. So we can assume there is a corruption in the file.

Could you maybe fix that? All other files are ok, just track 5 of CD 4 isn't coming.

Thanks a lot in advance, this collection is sooooooo supergreat!

Hi guys! I'm really sorry about cd4, I didn't know there was a problem with it. I do not actually have broadband or internet at home (apart from on my phone), all my uploading and most of my posting is done at the library.
The quickest way for you to get a good copy is to use another blog. I originally downloaded this lot from Phrock blog, which is now at
-if you find it hard to search his site, I know there are other blogs that have uploaded it too. So you can search at, which is a fab music blog search engine, very useful!
P.s all credit goes to Phrock for the album artwork, he always puts top artwork in his uploads!
Nice to hear from you & hope you will be okay with this. (Of course I will re-do cd4 eventually anyway...sometime.) xx

Any middle-aged German Witch in Amerika, said...

Hey, thanks for the links, that was very helpful! I have found the phrockblog and there got I got the CD4 with track 5 in it.

Then I realized it was even in 320! The links to the previous posts of that blog were no longer there, but I found another blog who had copied and reposted them (all in 320, yes all 18 CDs in 320):

Vol.1 and 2 are with rapidshare, while Vol.3 is on sharebee. That means there are several hosting sites for each file available.

Caution downloaders: since the OP had used a password protection, you will need it on the repost as well. So copy it while you are on the site, otherwise you will have a file you can't open.
