Using FLAC Files.

Colin is now using Bandcamp as his preferred Digital Download platform.
Whilst you can download from Bandcamp in MP3 format, you should choose the FLAC format as this delivers the same audio quality as a CD. Any track or album you download in FLAC format can be burnt onto a blank CDr and will sound identical to a CD release.

So, whilst MP3 files are smaller and quicker to download, FLAC, whilst a bigger download, provides the very best quality.


Download And Convert

If you download MP3 format files you can import them straight into Apple iTunes or Window Media Player.
If you download in FLAC format you will need to convert the files into .wav, .aiff or MP3 as you prefer. Only then can you import them into your chosen music player or burn a CD.

To burn the music to a CDr from FLAC, you must first convert to .wav or .aiff and then use a commercial or free Burning program to create a CDr to play on your hi-fi.


FLAC Conversion Programs

Audacity is a free program available for Windows PC and Apple Mac.

audacity.sourceforge.net

Run Audacity: Import each FLAC file and re-save it as .wav or .aiff

Collect all of the tracks together in a folder and make sure the tracks are correctly numbered so they burn onto a disc in the original playback order. ie. track01, track02, track03 etc.


CD Burning Programs

There are many commercial programs available such as Toast for the Mac or Nero for Windows PC.

Free WINDOWS software:

Easy Burner
www.easy-burner.com

BurnAware
www.burnaware.com/burnaware_free.html

Free MAC software:
Depending on which version of the OSX you have, the Mac can burn a CD without the need for third-party software. Alternatively, you can download Burn for free.

Other Useful Utilities

Foobar 2000 is a freeware audio player for Windows and plays FLAC without conversion.

Track Name: Getting Ready For The Trip
Getting Ready For The Trip
By Colin Lloyd Tucker

I am the bark on the bouncing rubber tree
I am the wind, the wind that blows through me
I am the set, I am the setting
I can’t forget what it is that I’m forgetting.

Take off the phone
Get rid of anyone uncool
Put the man in a suitcase
The man from uncle
Tonight we’re alone...

How far the star? How far infinity?
In your back yard put a kennel there for me
And you, you are as good as your very worse day
You know that you should…

Take off the phone
Get rid of anyone uncool
Crackerjack pastry
Meditating monks all
Tonight are alone
Swimming ‘round the whirlpool.
Track Name: William Shakespeare By Candlelight
William Shakespeare By Candlelight
by Colin Lloyd Tucker

William Shakespeare by candlelight
Fills his pipe with dynamite
And bowing his head he begins to write
He’ll keep going ‘til morning light
William Shakespeare by candlelight

Down in the town they call him ‘Old Red Eye’
They don’t approve of those who call by
By his cottage late at night
William hangs out with itinerant types
William Shakespeare by candlelight

William Shakespeare blows a cloud of dreams
His heart is aching from all the beauty he sees
While all around the blind are leading the blind
William is frozen, frozen in time
William Shakespeare by candlelight
Track Name: I'll Be Your Parachute
I’ll Be Your Parachute
By Colin Lloyd Tucker

Halfway there (halfway there)
A shine of rainbows in her eyes
The universe resides inside my old guitar
(his guitar) My guitar
If I could write a song for you
I’d paint a picture free of blues

Seems so long ago
We spoke of the poets
And how you like naughty English boys.

Rooted Here (rooted there)
A head of high activity
Try to move a muscle and be free
(you’ll be free) Yes indeed
I thought you were quite nice until you asked me
Was there anyone I really didn’t like?

I hated a girl
‘Cause she stole my Spangles
We played in the churchyard on the hill

Don’t worry my love
Don’t worry at all
Coming down is alright
It’s the way we fall

Don’t worry my love
Don’t worry at all
Coming down is alright
Enjoy the fall (halfway there)

Close your eyes (you’ll be free)
Down we go
I’ll be you parachute
Track Name: Little Dunnock
Little Dunnock
by Colin Lloyd Tucker

Little dunnock sitting on my wall
You’re so pretty, incredibly small
I could kiss you but you would fly away
Off to do what dunnock’s do all day

You remind me
Of somebody I once knew
They were pretty
And flirty just like you
Anticipating every coming day
Keeping a diary…organized that way

Little dunnock (Hello) please don’t you fly away (my love)
Like my sweet girl, say you’ll come back again
Stay forever…never say never

She would call me ‘the never-never man’
Living for the moment in a never-never land
I am here now and now here I am
We might get back together..no I never say never.

Little dunnock (Hello) please don’t you fly away (my love)
Like my sweet girl, say you’ll come back again
Stay forever…never say never
She would call me…
Track Name: Yours
Yours
By Colin Lloyd Tucker

I know how much you like your look
In this photograph I took…keep it, it’s yours
You always loved this hat
No I don’t want it back…here, it’s yours
This book it was so sad and soppy
I had to get an extra copy…it’s yours
Though I can’t lasso the moon for you
I could write a tune for you…it’s yours.

For sure I’ll give you anything
Give you my heart and song to sing…it’s yours

I knew right away there was something about you
Seems I can’t live without you…dedicate my life to you
Though I can’t lasso the moon for you
I could write a tune for you…it’s yours.
