Blue Floyd's TaxMan
It's been a few months since I've posted any newly discovered versions of George Harrison's classic TaxMan song.
I recently came across a bit torrent download of a concert from 1/20/02 by Blue Floyd. Instead of their normal set list of Pink Floyd songs, this over three hour long concert was all Beatles music, including TaxMan. The entire download is 1.1 gigabytes. Before listening to the entire show, I was anxious to check out the almost seven minute long TaxMan, which is very good.
As are most bit torrents, the original file is in the lossless FLAC format and is 45 megabytes in size. To make it easier to upload and store on my website, as well as for quicker downloading, I made an MP3 version that is only 6.5 mb. Playing the two versions back to back on my computer, I couldn't tell the difference.
