As is now well known (except to me, who only learned about it very recently) the FreeDB server was supposed to be shut down permanently by Magix on March 31, 2020 although it actually remained in service until June 13, 2020 when it finally was deactivated. Since I only learned about this after FreeDB went out of service, I no longer have the ability to download the Windows-format database directly from FreeDB.org in order to provide me with a a "local FreeDB database" for MP3Tag or any of my other programs which depend on FreeDB cloud-based or local database for queries.
I have downloaded that March 2018 complete database for Windows posted by @DetlevD, and have also found on the Wayback Machine web site all monthly updates from June 2019 through June 2020. Unfortunately the Wayback Machine has now removed all earlier monthly updates which would have covered the period from March 2018 through June 2019, so I cannot use the FreeDB Updater Utility to bring the March 2018 database current through end-of-life of FreeDB on June 13, 2020.
So, I am now trying to find a source for either:
(a) complete FreeDB-Database for Windows from any month from June 2019 or newer, since I do have all monthly updates coming forward for that time period, or
(b) all missing updates for UNIX database for the period March 2018 through June 2019, since if I had those along with the newer monthly updates I already have and the complete March 2018 database I also have I could again do all of the monthly updates from March 2018 up through current FreeDB end-of-life on June 13, 2020 using the FreeDB Updater Utility.
Does anybody have either of the above items that could be made available for me to download?
Or does anybody know where I might retrieve either of the above items?
Any help would be much much appreciated.
thanks in advance for your help
