Just install it, go to a torrent site, download the thing which says 'download torrent' to your Mac, then click on it. uTorrent will automatically start downloading without you having to do anything. It's really that easy.

yes i steer clear of flac files and torrents
i just stick to mp3 with zip or rar files it does me although there will be more choices with torrents.
cant get to grips with flac at all probably as i dont know how to convert them to mp3, now i know why i have trouble.
"Google will give you 10,000 answers ... a Librarian will give you the right answer" same goes for BWW ... just learned to torrent today ... and i know a lot of you guys have been doing it for a long time and therefore would know the right answer. It seems very easy ... i think i was put off years ago when i tried it with a crap PC and a slow connection. Now i have a MacBook and a speedy connection and it's so simple ... my first move was to get the entire works of Brian Eno in 5 mins ... have a lot of time off next week ... i am going to be very busy.
"That's what I do though that's seen as sacrilege by some due to the apparent loss in sound quality. "
It's only frowned upon if you, or others, then subsequently use a lossless recording to recreate an audio file (wav, flac etc) and then pretend it's an earlier generation recording. If you want to take a lossy recording and rip it to mp3 that's your call. If you want to listen on your iPod, why not? I have to admit, I have little time these days to listen to much at home, it's mostly on the move. In such circumstances sound quality (IMHO) doesn't need to be that good.
JEMS do not have a release date for the Detroit 1973 recording. The guy who uploads the JEMS masters on Dime does not have the actual cassette at the moment. I don't see this recording uploaded on Dime (or somewhere else) in near future to be honest.
There is a master recording of this concert available among a very small group of collectors though.
