Anyone know what the deal is with Kufala?

 

I went to their website with a view to possibly getting hold of the odd Crowdie live show, and the site no longer works. A quick look on Google and it would appear that they've changed their name to LiveMusic2U, but there doesn't appear to be a working website for that either. They've got a minimal page on Facebook, but no apparent place to order CD's from.

 

Anyone dealt with Kufala / LiveMusic2u recently?

 

Cheers

I'll try to find out a definitive answer about the Crowded House live CDs. According to a message on their Facebook page, the LiveMusic2U business shut down in January, This probably affects crowdedhouselive.com . Will let you know after the weekend.

I've just had confirmation that the CDs and downloads at crowdedhouselive.com are no longer available now that Kufala's gone. 

Thanks for the info.  They really should take down CrowdedHouseLive.com if the shows are no longer available!  Or at least put a message up.

Shame. I was looking into finally getting round to buying the 2010 boxset. Guess it's even more of a limited edition now!

Just a heads-up for those intrested:

I successfully downloaded a couple of shows yesterday from the crowdedhouselive.com web site.

The unfortunate demise of Kufala has not yet impacted the ability to download at www.crowedhouelive.com

Although based on Jaffaman's post, it may well be a very limited option.

So if you've procrastinated on downloading your local show, the time frame for doing so may be running out this week.

Ordering of physical CDs is not an option, but the download mp3/Flac alternative was still operational yesterday, but I would say approach with caution.

Thanks for the update.  I still want THE ENTIRE 2007 TOUR, but I don't have the resources to download it all this week.  What more can a poor boy do?

 

Thankfully I do have the entire 2010 tour, which is absolutely amazing!

Does anyone know what happened to all those cd's from KUFALA? If they went out of business did they sell their stock off? Just wondering if anyone knew anything more...

Some discounter was selling all the extra discs on ebay.  I almost bought some, but ended up buying 2007 shows from the UK tour off ebay instead.  I think I made the right choice.  The UK tour had much better sound quality.

Anyone know anything about those box sets Kufala offered? USA Tour 2010 and 2007 - long gone? no chance of locating?... I saw pictures on the now defunct Kufala facebook page - box looks pretty cool - anyone here pick that up?... thanks for any info!

Those box sets are long gone and certainly no longer commercially available.  I remember seeing the last of the individual discs being sold at a deep discount on eBay a couple years back.  I've enjoyed collecting all the shows digitally, but never splurged for the box.  2010 sound quality is far superior to 2007.

The most terrible thing happened! My external hard drive that had all of my music on it including the entire set of live shows from both 2007 and 2010, is now broken!

 

All of those beautiful shows gone forever
