Hi everyone
I'm a new Smiths fan, having only heard them for the first time a few weeks ago (please don't hurt me) i'm currently looking through the pages and pages of bootlegs wondering what to download. Are there any collections of rarity's or shows you guys would recommend for a new fan?
Thanks guys
Josh

Lots of information about the best bootlegs at Stephane's site.
Thank Your Lucky Stars is considered a great recording. Not a bad place to start.

It's cool that you are getting into them. My personal advice would be to start with early shows and work forward. The Smiths never played a bad show, IMO. :)

Thanks a lot guys, i've been downloading a lot of stuff but for some reason I cannot seed. I believe it is due to the virgin media hub I was given when I moved house a couple of weeks back, it's absolutely awful. Luckily there's going to be a firmware update next week (apparently) which will enable me to use my own router and then hopefully i'll be able to seed.

You can seed through the Virgin superhub okay. Just make sure you've got the right ports open and forwarded.

I have the correct port forwarded and the same Utorrent settings I've always had. I could seed no problem until changing to this new hub. While downloading it will seed at 0.1 kb/s and then completely stops when the download is finished.

I've seeded about a terabyte through the Superhub so there isn't an inherent problem. Something in your setup. Have you tried http://canyouseeme.org/.
