    1. Salve Bayreuth,
      Tutti i link della raccolta "Philips Original Jackets Collection" sono "Page not found",
      è possibile avere il reupload???

  3. Thanks for all the FLAC's. Is there any way you could re-post the Argerich Duo Collection ( It appears that the files have been deleted and I was 2/3rds of the way done downloading the parts.

  4. There's no password. If you're being prompted for a password, the download was probably faulty.

    A terrific post.

  5. Thanks for a great post :)

    Downloaded and extracted OK to 55 .cue files, .flac files, and .log files
    All the cue files need to edited:
    Open the cue file with notepad
    Go to the seventh line of code eg FILE "V.A.blah blah blah (flac).flac" WAVE
    Change this to: FILE "CD##.flac" WAVE
    ... where ## is the two digit number of the cue file
    Save cue file
    Do this 55 times!

  6. This is great. However, I have been trying to download it for 1½ months now, and have only got about ten of the parts, because Uploaded keeps stopping the download in the middle of downloading. It seems to be getting worse - I have been trying to download part 11 for the past week, and every time it cuts out after only a few kb. Then I have to wait three hours and try again, and then the same thing happens. At this rate, I could be trying all year, and still not succeed. Is there any chance of sharing it on a different host as well?

  7. Could you please reupload parts 71-83? I've been downloading this with free account for past few weeks and it would be a tragedy if I'd have to stop now. :(

    Your help is appreciated.

  8. All the links are dead, aren't they? Or I have a problem.

  9. I have succeeded in downloading up to part 61 so far, and it has taken a couple months to get that much. However, the rest of the links have disappeared. Can you please reupload? It is sad to think of all that hard work going to nothing!

  10. What happened? All links are dead :(

  11. can you please reupload? all links are dead...

  12. Can you please reupload the links, especially from part 60 onwards.

  13. Still hoping to be able to download the rest of this share...

  14. I wonder if there's any chance you might be able to reupload these links, which sadly have disappeared?

  15. Yes, please. We hate to be pushy, but we'd like a response, at least.

  16. Can you reupload these links?

  17. I was in the middle of downloading these, and now they are all deleted. Can you please upload the links again...

  18. Any chance of getting a reupload? File links have disappeared.

  19. Hey guys, I asked bayreuth to reupload links and he kindly provided all links uploaded to filepost. You can find them in this thread:

    I don't know whether you will be able to use these new links with the ones you downloaded so far. (the new ones have a _ sign between Philips and 55, so these are definitely new files, although since they are probably the same, there's a chance they will be compatible. Good luck!) If not, you'll probably want to download all of these again. :) Happy listening!

  20. That's great! I don't know how you did it Filip Tkac, but thanks very much, and thanks to Bayreuth for coming through in the end. I had almost deleted what I had already downloaded.

  21. isn't it easier to make a torrert? just sayin'

  22. Thank you Filip Tkac and Bayreuth. I thought I had missed this.

  23. Hi. Could you re-upload the entire collection? If not, i'm very interested in:
    CD 37 MULLOVA / OZAWA - Tchaikovsky & Sibelius Concertos

    Could you reup that on? Thank you very much.

    1. See link in thread above that goes to list of links that are working as of today.
