Thanks for the links. It it possible to use the FLAC files with iTunes without having to convert them to ALAC?

No, iTunes doesn't handle FLAC- ALAC is the Apple equivalent. You have to convert FLAC to ALAC or mp3 for iTunes.

I've grabbed a lot of stuff from there. Many different artists. Very useful.

And how… Last night I got some stunning shows… Boz Scaggs, Rosanne Cash, Little Feat, Tom Waits… It’s brilliant!

If you are using a MAC, XLD is a great free converter.  You can convert to and from all the different formats.  Works great.

Can anyone recommend a good simple free program to convert wma to mp3 I am on a MAC?

Any-Make MP4 Converter is the one I currently use: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/any-make-mp4-converter/id980190365?mt=12

I've also found Smart Converter to be useful when it comes to conversion to MP3 in the past.

If you upload those album files to a dropbox or other cloud service and provide me with a link, I'll convert them, make sure they're properly tagged and get them back to you.

EDIT: I may even already have some of the albums. I've got thousands upon thousands of albums already in mp3 format.

@JerseyforniaI have these in MP3 so not hitting you up there, but I must say it's a lot to digest. I've never listened to all or even much of it.

What do you consider the essential discs or essential tracks on this set that must be heard? I remember drifting away from these at some point after listening to the third or fourth extreme poor quality version of some song I can't remember.

The standout from what I have listened to is the Nebraska disc (disc 1?). Bizarrely the actual Nebraska album material sounds better than the official record, and the outtakes are astounding quality wise.

Volumes 1-6 and 16-19 are the only ones I really revisit. The three Hollywood Hills Garage discs hold some brilliant songs, though the drum machine can get annoying and there are multiple takes of some of the songs. The fun with these three volumes is finding the version of each song that you find essential, the ones you think are so good they overcome the drum machine fatigue. If you haven't heard Delivery Man, they're worth the listen just for that, but there are several fantastic songs from those sessions.

There's no doubt (and it was seized upon when this series was released) that the LM version of Nebraska is easily better than the official versions, beit vinyl, cassette, CD, 8 track or 78.

Go figure.
