I thought of trying that, but before I got round to it, runnersdialzero tested a couple of The Big Beat Qoboz files for me. Well, really, for us, you might say — for the benefit of the board. He rules.

As you may have read on the KAEOS64 thread, which has temporarily dropped down the board in all of the fuss surrounding BW's Q&A appaearance, runners concluded that the Qobuz Big Beat files are NOT compressed.

As a result of this, I am tempted to re-shill for KAEOS64 from Qobuz — after all, if The Big Beat from Qobuz is not compressed, there's a chance the KAEOS64 ones aren't, either — and ask runners to test a couple of the 1964 files, too. But I haven't got round to it yet. It sticks in the craw a bit to pay twice for something. But if the end result is that I can have an archive copy that isn't slightly degraded, I would much rather have that than the iTunes versions.

The Big Beat 1963 now appears to be unavailable for downloading/streaming on any service as far as I can tell. Has this been the case for a while? Wonder why was it taken down?

 Man that sucks. The impermanence of streaming is an incredible drag.

Truly a bummer, especially since the compilation was only available as a digital download or via streaming. iTunes in the US has 10 selections available (album only) all by either Brian Wilson, The Honeys, or Bob & Sheri. All the Beach Boys stuff is gone.

Glad I bought  my digital copy years ago when I did. 

Taking stuff off iTunes only encourages piracy.  I'll never get why they would allow something to lapse like this for whatever legal BS that might be the cause here, money is being lost.

Yes I got the digital download as well, thank goodness.
I'm re-reading Becoming the Beach Boys. It's great to be able to listen to those songs that are referenced.

Oh blast! It's still available on 7Digital but only in mp3 format and I really want it in lossless. I guess that's what I get for being too slow. Hopefully it'll be available once again...  Undecided

I got the Big Beat as zip file for free by runnersdialzero, then-Smiley Smile member. 3D Nice music.

Same here! I have the lossy mp3 from Amazon. Great music, but always hoped for the flacs to become available.

It's never been available in Japan, so I've never got around to listen to it  Sad

You're right. Slow isn't the right word. I'll be honest and say that I had little or no interest in the Beach Boys (or music in general) at that time...  Embarrassed
