I've never been able to find a version of When my Eyes without a small glitch at 43 seconds (messy rearran-GLITCH-ging). Does a glitch-free version exist? Also, the best version I've found has a cutoff at 17kHz. Does anyone have a better encoding?

Here it is! I've just uploaded this video a few months ago.

I've also noticed that annoying glitch on the song too.

I cut out the glitching part at 0:43 seconds VERY precisely and this is the best result:

Thanks for you effort, but I was not looking for fix. That I could do myself. What I was wondering was more if the original leaked file had the same glitch. As you might have gathered from my other posts I consider myself an audiophile so I don't approve of transcoding between lossy formats. I want to get as close to the original leaked file as possible without a long lineage of lossy transcodings. Your Youtube version has a hard frequency cutoff at 16kHz whereas the best encoding I've been able to find (MP3 CBR 160) has a soft cutoff at 17kHz.

 

When editing a lossy encoded file, do it in a application capable of editing without re-encoding or save the file in a lossless format. Youtube has unfortunately lowered their audio standard so any audio sourced from YT will have significant audio degradation.

I really think the original audio source didn't had that weird glitch on it.

 

Both of these songs ("When My Eyes" and "Long Day") got uploaded on YouTube with some strange buggy noises on them,

so I really doubt those weird sounds are originally from the leaked files themselves...

 

I also find these strange buggy noises REALLY stressful and they kill the flow of the song...

 

This is the first upload of each song on YouTube:

I wonder if When my Eyes and Trilby originated from Ian Barter's website.

 

This thread was started only 1 day before the 1st Youtube upload:

https://www.amywineh...and-ian-barter/

 

The audio doesn't seem to be there anymore. A poster says the bitrate was 160kbps, so maybe the file I've got is the original leaked file after all.

 

This is the best sounding version I've found: https://www.dropbox....(2001).mp3?dl=0

This is "Long Day" saved directly from Mick Lister's Myspace without the Youtube lineage: https://www.dropbox....ource].mp4?dl=0

 

Here's 2 other encodings of "Long Day" without Youtube lineage:

I'm still trying to figure out who leaked the song "Jazz N' Blues" and how it got blocked on YouTube...

I've actually got the original 1st gen leaked file of "(Money) No More Jazz N' Blues". This is the best lossy encoding of any leaked Amy song.

 

Here it is for download or direct playback: https://www.dropbox....(2001).mp3?dl=0

Mick Lister embedded a little message inside the media info of the source copy of 'Long Day' from his MySpace page ...

 

Now this song is a little favourite of mine called "Long Day", tis only a simple demo with the now famous Amy Winehouse of which we co wrote this tune together. Amy was only 17 then and was being developed by 19 management and this song was written on the infamous day of 9/11. I recall everyone loving it except for dear Amy who thought it was too "pop" for her. Then it was almost covered by Macy Gray to be finally  covered by Tyler James who was dropped before even opening his mouth to sing??!! So this little song has a bit of history and thought it only right that you can now listen to it for yourselves, /  / Hope you like it, /  /  Mick.

 

Thanks for sharing it @ MingusMonk&Amy

 
Amy, if you are up there listening, thank you for sharing the incredible soundtracks of your life ...

@Uno I copied that text from his myspace to save it with the audio file. I always make sure to save accompanying info/file history for my huge Amy collection.

Ha, I would have never thought to embed it into the media, I just keep all that info in a huge Excel file with links that open all the media

So did anyone ever manage to get Lucky Trainers and Jewel from that website?
