Crush All Boxes (test pressing source)

Unique material: all Crush All Boxes songs are unreleased mixes

Crush All Boxes was the name of an album that Zappa planned to release in late 1980, but Zappa decided not to release it after it had been bootlegged, perhaps after he had played it on the radio. The songs were released later, on Tinsel-Town Rebellion and You Are What You Is, but in different mixes. The cover was used for Tinsel-Town Rebellion; the old title is still vaguely visible.

From Jon Naurin:

From what I've heard, someone at the radio station where Crush All Boxes was broadcast got his hands on the test pressing, and leaked it to the bootleg circuits. So some boots have the broadcast as source, while some use the test pressing.

*Above is the text file I received with the torrent. I don't know who to thank for ripping, encoding and posting on the old tracker, but I owe them a debt of gratitude; in my opinion this makes for essential listening.

I know this has been dead for a while, but is anyone willing to reseed it? I would be extremely grateful, and would seed for quite some time myself.

Is anyone who has this willing to seed? I think everyone is stuck at 12%.

I'm quite happy to re-seed this, but can people please try to avoid seeding/leeching too many files at once, as it seems to cause slow transfer speeds.
I have 30KB/s of upload bandwidth available (I wish it was more, but I can't change it), yet my up-load is peaking at 6/7 KB/s, despite the fact that i've made this my only active torrent.
Thanks.

Without knowing for sure, i'd hazard a guess that it's taken from an acetate test-pressing. I haven't made a S.A. or F.A., but even the best of FM radio broadcasts tend not to sound this good.

No prob, anacat!

Edit: I just hope my stupid connection is up to the job.

Another edit: Oops! I didn't see how long ago you had requested a seed. Sorry.

*shrug*

Jump on board, people.

anacat, I feel like I owe you this one... so give a ring if and when you come back around.
