unless someone provides either a 8khz mp3 from the reference encoder
or a copy of the spec describing 8khz decoding i wont look into this
any further, also note that all decoders (mpg123, ffmp3 and mad)
contain notes in the source that 8khz is (likely) broken
/* the 8000 Hz short block scalefactor bands do not break after
the first 36 frequency lines, so this is probably wrong */
/* this is probably wrong for 8000 Hz short/mixed blocks */
/* this is probably wrong for 8000 Hz mixed blocks */

In the past you could go to a library and read, borrow or copy any book
Today you'd get arrested for mere telling someone where the library is
