Where can I listen to the full Dreamscapes Compilation online?

Hi together,

Do you know where I can listen to the full Dreamscapes Compilation online? On YouTube there are only 10 minutes of each CD.

Well, this was meant to be an item for collectors, so there was an original issue, then a second print, and it was available on iTunes for a while; but it seems the band decided to keep its value for collectors again. Probably in a couple of years, when there is a collective demand for it again they'll make it available for a new group of fans.

AFAIK the original Dreamscapes + CrazyShow have not been released digitally / for purchase that way. There's a site out there which sells both of these albums digitally (FLAC + MP3), but it appears to be a very shady / fraudulent site so I can't disclose the name of it...

There are a lot of torrent sites that I know of have true FLAC files for both boxsets. Some of the boxsets contain the number of the box in the Artwork folder

@MarianGoldFan: I don't remember about CS, but DS was definitely available on iTunes for a while; they even released it with a bonus track (a version of Whales). Later I found there were only a few songs available, then nothing.
You're right not to tell the name of a suspicious website. Thank you for that. :)

I was not imploying the fact that Alphaville products were not available through torrent sites. I did not mention any sites that had Alphaville products. If Marian could produce the actual boxsets that held a number to prove that the box is rare, why didn't he produce a site that fans could download the box sets and the discography, including live shows, that we could all purchase the released albums and live shows, including the rare demos from DS and CS?

In any case, I do agree with you that if there were any official sources for listening to this material, the band would have already published them. :)
