Many "hardcore" DMB fans may already know this, but In 2000 Dave Matthews Band worked to put out an album Titled "Lillywhite Sessions".

According to Wikipedia:
Lillywhite Sessions (LWS) is a collection of songs recorded by Dave Matthews Band in 1999 and 2000 and produced by Steve Lillywhite. The songs, recorded by the band as a follow-up to their 1998 album Before These Crowded Streets, were ultimately scrapped by the band.

Track Listing:
"Busted Stuff" – 4:05
"Grey Street" – 5:53
"Diggin' a Ditch" – 4:24
"Sweet Up and Down" – 4:43
"JTR" – 5:36
"Big Eyed Fish" – 5:16
"Grace Is Gone" – 5:12
"Captain (Crazy)" – 5:27
"Bartender" –10:07
"Monkey Man" – 7:21
"Kit Kat Jam" – 5:34
"Raven" – 6:24

In 2002 the Dave Matthews Band released Busted Stuff, a new album which contained re-recordings of many of the songs that were left collecting dust with Sessions. (9 of the above songs were re-recorded and ended up on the Busted Stuff Album.)

The Lillywhite Sessions was leaked on the internet not long after it was scrapped. For anyone who is interested, I found a link to FLAC files of the Lillywhite Sessions CD. These files were supposedly remaster from some dude named Karmegeddon.

I am pretty sure that there is nothing illegal with downloading an album that was never released or sold...

I went back and forth a bit between a couple of the songs linked above and the official re-recorded versions that ended up on the Busted Stuff album.

Without spending too much time switching back and forth, I thought the sound qualtity on the busted stuff album was much better.

Yep, but I am surprised how good this is for a bootleg. It is studio quality, at least on my computer set up. Never played Flac on my HT so not sure how to do that. Will the PS3 play Flac?

After hearing these songs so many times, a new mix is nice to hear for a change of pace.

Get the flac-1.2.1-win.zip from the bottom of this page:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/flac/files/flac-win/

Inside the .zip find the "bin" directory and extract the flac.exe file, put it somewhere you can easily access from the command line "C:\Users\[username]\flac.exe" would be good.

Now open the Command Prompt, change to the directory where you have the .flac files and issue this command for each one:

\Users\[username]\flac -d [filename].flac

That'll produce .wav files which you can burn to a CD, or copy to the PS3.

Yeah, for a disc that was never released, the quality is not too bad.

I play Flac files on my Axioms by streaming with TVersity to my denon 3808.

Thanks for the info about switching to .wav files. can this be done in batch format for an entire CD or do you have to do it one at a time?

It's possible to use the "FOR" command to process more than one file in a loop, but it's cumbersome, and I can't recall the syntax from the top of my head. Google might be of a little help if you ask for: command prompt for loop

Another easy to follow option if you use Winamp and Windows can be found here.

Thanks guys!
