Over the last few months, we’ve posted about several private torrent trackers that specialize in ROIO (Recordings of Independent Origin), Bootlegs, live music and videos, stage performances, trader friendly music and so on. This post summarizes updated information about eight of these trackers, all of which are currently open for signup. From unreleased albums to studio tracks by popular artists, these sites will help you find rare content that is not available even on most dedicated music trackers out there.
All sites mentioned in the article are open for signup as of 07/2/2009 2.00AM Sri Lankan Time (+5.30 GMT). Please note that trackers such as Dimeadozen and Lossless Legs tend to close (and open) signup at regular intervals. Keep checking back if you couldn’t get in at the first attempt.
