I predict 55,000 by January 1, 2009. Let’s keep this project rolling! 60,000 by next memorial day? we’ll see! so much of the recorded library out there for all bands is already up on archive.org, the next 10,000 would have to be mostly new stuff. get out there and ask your favorite band if they are okay with sharing their live recordings on archive.org’s Live Music Archive project!
