Usenet groups are as ancient as the net itself.  They are what they say: basic bulletin boards to exchange news and ideas.  Over time new groups were created for almost every facet of human interaction (yes, including "erotica").  The binary groups are not news posts per se but uploaded files, split into pieces that need a decoder to download and decode.

Yes, they are entirely legal.  At this time.  RIAA seems to not know or care about them, so it's best to not advertise them too much.  But pictures were always disseminated this way, and mp3's and avi's are now as well.

There are freeware decoder programs (X-News which I use but is not the easiest in the world to use...I still don't know 80% of what the heck it does), check download sites.

If you have a newsreader and a newsserver, sure:

alt.binaries.beatles
alt.binaries.sounds.mp3.beatles

A lot of duplication but that's ok.

NEWSSERVER: Teranews.com allows 50 MB free each day after a $3.95 setup fee.

I paid and received my password straight away... and it works! It still seems like a good deal to me - it's saving me a lot of money on Bootlegs! :)

That's really great. It kind of restores my faith. I could have sworn this was a scam! I was just too cynical!

The subscription has changed though (did anyone else notice that?) - the minimum is now 3 months instead of 1 month.

I don't think you can pay by credit card - I tried but couldn't fathom it out! I paid via my Pay Pal account - you just enter in the Unreleased Beatles email address (remember to suppy YOUR email address or you wont get the password!) and they do the rest.

Some GREAT downloads this week too! ;D

Thanks End. Sorry about having to go to a bandwidth surcharge, but bandwidth consumption was getting way out of hand and doubling every week. To give you an idea, I had 15% (20GB's) of my daily bandwidth going to (only) several points in Japan. I had HUNDREDS of people who were using 300-500 GB's a day. They must have been playing the music from the site all day, over and over again. I had MP3 search engines who were sending me thousands of downloaders a day, and on and on...

Bandwidth consumption was really preventing me from going to where I wanted to go with the site. Now I can put a lot of material up (an interesting selection of "core" beatlegs) instead of 1 or 2 albums. If I was a beatleg visitor, I'd much rather pay a small bandwidth surcharge and have access to several new "core" albums a week, than pay nothing and only have access to 1 or 2. The amount of money we're talking about is less than what you would pay for postage alone if you were to do a trade(assuming you could find the material) and the "trade" at Unreleasedbeatles.com is done instantly instead of having to wait several weeks, hoping your counterpart actually sends you the quality product they've committed to. The site is a lot faster and more stable for those that have supported it, which seems only fair to me.

My goal is to provide the best and most "core" beatlegs to new and intermediate collectors in an organized, expediant and inexpensive way. It's a shame that some of the best Beatles material has to remain under lock and key, gathering dust on vault shelves when there are so many people that really want to appreciate it.

Thanks,
UB

Hi Bruno,

Check your PM's.

If anyone else is interested in an alternative to Paypal, follow the directions on the site and send a request (for a PO Box to send a Money Order to)to "unreleasedbeatles@yahoo.com".

Thanks,

Oops, that should read "I had HUNDREDS of people who were using 300-500 MB's a day.

--not GB's.

Hi UB!

Thanks for the info - but more importantly, thanks for Unreleased Beatles.com!

One SMALL question... what happened to track 21 on Get Back Journals 4? It's not there! ;D

Keep up the brilliant work - it's much appreciated, and I agree, VERY good value for money.

Cheers
AL :)

Hi End,

A heads up that on Sunday or Monday I'll be posting Upgraded BBC 2004. This is all the best off of Great Dane, Upgraded BBC and the recent YD release: Sounds like the authoritative issue of the BBC's!
