I have about 160GB of Smiths recordings which are torrented here. I realise that for those of you who have found this site recently or those of you with poor bandwidth downloading such a large amount can be a headache. I set up this site to preserve lossless Smiths recordings, so I'd like to do what I can to get people out to people.
I have a tiny 120GB USB hard drive here. Since I don't really use the drive I thought I would send it on a world tour of Smiths fans. I plan to fill it full of recordings, build up a list and then start it on its journey.

It uses USB and doesn't require any additional power. It's also tiny, so cheap to post. Just copy the recordings and then send it to the next person on the list.
I'm based in the UK, so it probably makes sense to send it to UK people first then at some point start crossing borders around Europe then on the US and then to who knows where.
If you're interested in receiving the drive and posting it on, express your interest here along with your country and we'll get things going. The only thing that I ask is that you do your best to seed some of the recordings that you receive. This site really needs more seeders.
I'm open to offers at to what I should fill the drive with but I'd prefer it if it were Smiths as that's what I'm trying to keep alive.

Gotta be The Smiths all the way, live stuff first, followed by rare studio stuff, not that there is much rare studio stuff. Since you're trying to squeeze 160GB into a 120GB drive, there won't be much room for owt else ;)
I'm in the UK/GB/England

such a modern/technical way of getting the tunes to the fans. Before, folks sent tapes around the world, but now its hard drives.

Starting off with Smiths live stuff would seems to make sense.... there are a lot of shows which are frequently made available (..oo..... Thank Your Lucky Stars.... etc off the top of my head), so things like that could probably be left off. After that, any vaguely rare studio recordings/live sessions would be cool.
I'm in the UK and I'm happy to copy stuff off the drive, seed for all I'm worth and send the drive onto whoever is next in line.
If this takes off, perhaps one of us could invest in another cheap drive to spread Morrissey stuff around?
Great idea you've had there.. nice one!

Now this is a great idea !! I'm one of those who came late to this site and have been trying to catch up on all these recordings. Can't complain to what i've already gathered but this seems like a great way to get it all in one go !! :)

This is a wonderful idea of sending this hard drive around the world. Perhaps a journal could accompany it, so the current downloader could add commentary and photos of its travels. Count me in from California.
