So is that link supposed to mean the release is going to be our Xmas present at 6:00 in the morning? Very cool that there's no overlap with LALP!  :tup

How does that work though? Is it only going to be available to order from 6:00 to 6:01am? Or is it going to be a stream with only a limited time to download? There has to be an incentive to be up at that hour.

 :lol No I mean I'm guessing it will be available starting at 6:00am. That's gonna be the release date and time. I'm not making any guesses as to in what fashion they're going to release it. I'm hoping Youtube/Live stream/ maybe cheap DVD with 7 hours of commentary..

But the question is, which time zone?

Probably 6:00am in the eastern time zone, since that is the zone the band lives in and that's when the previous gifts have been shared.

It will be available at 6:00am Eastern Standard Time and will continue to be available through AT LEAST mid-January....

It will be distributed via BitTorrent so once it's going, who knows how long it will go.

I have chosen a group of people (primarily members of Grateful Dreams Trading) to start downloading the torrent from me on Dec 23rd so there will be PLENTY of seeders once it goes live for the general public. There should be at least 50 seeders at that time so it will be a quick download.

The files are encoded in lossless FLAC. Tagged, with artwork!

At this time, I feel comfortable releasing the track list (subject to change... still waiting on a track from Richard Chycki.)

CD1:
01 Under A Glass Moon (Phoenix, AZ 12/4/11)
02 Forsaken (London, UK 7/24/11)

04 Endless Sacrifice (Austin, TX 10/26/11)
05 Drum Solo (Austin, TX 10/26/11)
06 YtseJam (Austin, TX 10/26/11)
07 The Great Debate (London, UK 7/24/11)

CD2:
08 Another Day (Austin, TX 7/7/12)
09 Through My Words/Fatal Tragedy (Montreal, QB 10/7/11)
10 To Live Forever (Huntington, NY 7/19/12)
11 Learning To Live (Tel Aviv, Israel 7/19/11)

Shadow2222

Wow, fantastic! Thanks Wey! Now I'm hoping the next few days before Christmas just fly by.

Sycsa

Wow, this is a dream tracklist, massively looking forward to hearing most of these songs. I could easily drop tracks off LALP to squeeze in UAGM (Mangini slays the chorus), Peruvian Skies, Endless Sacrifice or LTL. Looks like a big ass production. :metal

Lucien

Wait, is this completely separate from Live at Luna Park? If so, is there different artwork, a different mix, etc?

IdoSC

DT keep throwing me in a loop lately. I was so excited, screamed my lungs out and literally had tears in my eyes when they came back on stage and started playing Learning to Live at their show in Israel. Then I was disappointed as all hell when that song didn't make it to the show in Luna Park.

To think they actually chose *that* performance, the one I witnessed with my own eyes, and the one that nearly brought me to tears, as the first "official" performance of this song in quite some time...damn. We're mostly jewish here, and we don't celebrate Christmas, but this is truly the greatest Christmas present DT could give me :metal

*Then again, James kinda missed the mark on the F# in this performance (he hit it, but lost control while singing it). It was still awesome though :P

Hey guys, this is the first time i have been a part of the forum during xmas and i think its awesome that the guys are releasing the live material as an xmas gift to us. I have never used bit torrent to download anything and i was just wondering if its something that's hard to do or what exactly is required to get the files. Any help would be much appreciated, i definetly need to check this out on wednesday, thanks!

Download and install the free program called "uTorrent" from Google. Then, when the link is out, just press it and click "Open File" in your browser. Your browser will download a tiny file which essentially guides uTorrent on what exactly you want to download. Once you do that, uTorrent will open automatically, and all you need to do is press OK.

The default download destination of uTorrent is your Documents > Downloads folder.

OMG AWESOME!!! I love how UAGM was taken from a night when James hit the C# at the end!!! And another track?? Wow, cool. The only ones left from the whole tour are Paradigm Shift and Crimson King, if I remember correctly.

Then there's the whole issue with playing FLAC (depending on his setup) or converting it for use on an iPod or to use in iTunes.   No big deal though, FLAC is great. :)

Wow, well done. An amazing gift and a wonderful set list! I don't mind the patch-work show, either, as I am used to it with Rush (ESL, ASOH and DS all had various shows' songs mixed together for a single release). I love the care taken in to make sure each track was one that wasn't on LALP, and to ensure that we get a performance of each song from the tour!

Considering that "To Live Forever" is here from the same show, I would expect the King Crimson cover of "21st Century Schizoid Man" to be present at the end of this compilation. It would be nice to have "Paradigm Shift" as well, just for completion's sake, but were I able to choose, definitely the cover, especially since it was a one-off performance (as with TLF and AD, both of which are present on here). It would fit nicely at the end of the 2nd disc as the "2nd Encore" after "As I Am".

As it stands, though, without the one final track, we've got nearly 2 hours of music here and I am completely ecstatic for it! I cannot wait to hear these songs!!!

-Marc.

I am at a loss for words.  This is fucking ridiculous.  Ridiculously awesome.  Just fuck! 

That setlist! 

The Great Debate! 

Gah!

FUCKFUCKFUCK!!!!! :o :o :o

I honestly don't know what to say except thanks.  Between this and Live at Luna Park, I don't think you can ask for a better setlist.  FUCK!!!!


ImNewDontKillMe

Thanks for the info on how to get the download. Anybody have an advice on the best way to convert FLAC files to WAV/MP3? Appreciate it thanks

Could somebody post the direct link.  I am technologically incompetent so I am paranoid about going to the wrong place and getting a virus.
