Nick Drake -Time Has Told Me -Unreleased demos and studio outtakes. It requires a signup and they are currently full but they frequently open up again. This torrent has 44 studio/live tracks that are a bit raw but still have the Nick Drake magic.

This post was deleted for the following reason: doesn't really work when no one can get to it, and even then it's seems like an unauthorized bittorrent download.

Wow, way to get me psyched and then let me down, HARD.

Just be patient. I only had to wait two days to get an account.

And some of us have been waiting weeks with no success! I heard they had a bunch of Viv Stanshall's radio shows up a while ago, but I can never seem to get in to find out.

Some more information about what's included in the .torrent would have been nice. Are these outtakes related in any way to the MP3s linked in this earlier Nick Drake thread? Because I bet I'm not the only one here who already grabbed those. seems to be inaccessible at the moment. I wonder if that's related.

Sadly no...from the dimeadozen faq

Do not share your personalized .torrent files with anyone else! When anyone opens one of your personalized .torrent files to connect to a swarm, all of its upload and download activity will accrue to your username. If two other people are currently downloading a torrent using your personalized .torrent file, you can't. Therefore you must never give out your own personalized .torrent files, or others can use them and wreak havoc with your ratio or keep you from downloading a torrent yourself.

The site is a fabulous source of live music and well worth working to get onto. I debated whether to post this but then I figured that Nick Drake fans would want to try and get this and would put in the effort to get an account so I figured I would let them know so they could try.

Sweet! A single link to a torrent I may or may not be able to access in a couple days (or several weeks).

Sadly no..

Perhaps someone with the files could create a new torrent and upload somewhere more accessible than dime?

Dude, lots of good things get posted to these login-only torrent sites. Lots of good posts and discussions come up on closed mailing lists and bulletin boards. Hell, people say the craziest in their private Livejournal posts.

But one link that most of us will never be able to follow still doesn't make a good post.

nebula, seconded. I am sad and bitter because I can't have this. :(

wtf. flagged.

Yeah, wtf. Flagged.

The original Newsvine post was deleted because it was in private beta even though we could easily all have gotten in (I assume the OP had an invite to share and everyone who was invited instantly got 20 invites to share with friends).

This is worse.

Also, why doesn't someone just post this as a public torrent somewhere? What's the point of private torrent sites?

thanks. for nothing.

My apologies for trying to share this. I won't make the mistake again.

Delete away.

Hold on. It's ambiguous as to whether someone will create a mefi torrent of this file. Anyone willing to step up?
posted by The White Hat at 7:45 AM on March 6, 2006

My condolences to everyone who's not able to get this torrent RIGHT NOW. Getting an account on DIME is worth waiting for.
Camp out on the signup page till a slot opens up.

And yes, someone should create an accessible torrent of this to satisfy the interest that's been generated here.
