COPYRIGHT LAWS: If someone has copyrighted work, another person does not
have the right to copy it or to produce a derivative work based on it,
without permission from the copyright holder. Electronic sampling is also
considered a violation of the law. An exception to the copyright law, the
"Fair Use Doctrine" (U.S.C.A. 17 Sect. 107), allows copyrighted
material to be used in a reasonable manner, without the owners consent,
for such purposes as criticism, comment, and research. Non-profit exhibition
of copyrighted works, in a general sense, is not unlawful, and is typically
exempt from legal recourse. These live recordings are not copyrighted,
and are in no way intended to compete with the professional recording industry.
I HAVE NO INTEREST WHATSOEVER IN MAKING ANY PERSONALLY PROFIT (MONETARY
OR OTHERWISE) FROM THIS ENTERPRISE, BUT ONLY WANT TO COLLECT MORE 'RARE'
AUDIO AND VIDEO RECORDINGS AS A HOBBY. My lists are compiled as a guide
to understanding, examining and chronicling actual concert recordings and
to serve as a reference to other fans and collectors of such material.
The purpose of which is to document the history of various bands and artists.
These lists are intended for use by other fans and biographers and contact
and exchange in a non-profit manner is encouraged.
Here are the general guidlines I use when trading tapes and discs:
You can email me at
- I trade tapes, cdrs, videos, and dvds as a hobby. I DO NOT sell any recording
nor do I attempt to gain any profits by trading recordings.
- I use (and like to receive) MaxellTM tapes for both audio and video trades Maxell Gold or Hi-Fi (T-120, T-160
video), Maxell Silver (T-160 video), and Maxell XL II or Maxell XL IIS
(100-90-60 audio). Maxell discontinued making their 100 minute audio tapes.
I do not like or want Maxell 110 tapes. Instead, I use (and will accept)
TDKTM SA 100. I will also make video trades using Sony, Maxell, or JVCTM Hi-8 video tapes.
- The CDr FAQ website says that the color of a disc does not matter, but rather quality counts.
Quality DOES make a difference. I prefer to use name brand discs over generic
brand discs. I usually use media brands such as MitsuiTM, Maxell, Memorex TM, Ricoh TM, Sony, TDK, or VerbatimTM perform well in some cdr burners. For dvds, I can use either dvd+r or
dvd-r. If you have a preference, please let me know in advance and I will
try to accomodate your request.
- All cdr trades MUST be done using a Disc-at-Once burn (DAO). I do not trade for discs that
are burned using Track-at-Once burns (TAO). The TAO burn produces short
(2-3 second) gaps between tracks on audio cdrs. Whereas, DAO burns provide
for a continuious flow between audio tracks. This is crucial in order to
keep the "live" feel of the show. For more information on this
issue please see one of the following websites:
- All video tape trades MUST be done with tapes recorded in SP mode. I do not trade for tapes that
are recorded in LP or EP mode. I do not want recordings made from a tape
that was recorded in EP or LP mode. Some recordings will fit nicely on
standard T-120 (2 hour) tapes. However, many concerts and now running over
2 hours. To fit the entire show on one tape you will need to use a T-160
(2 hr. 40 min) tape. Alternatively, if the show is naturally split into
two sets, then each set could be recorded to separate T-120 tapes. I would
also consider receiving shows dubbed to Hi-8 video tapes (MUST be Hi-8, not just an 8mm tape)
- I only use NEW blank tapes and cdrs. That is, I do not re-record material
on a tapes that have previously been used. I expect the same in return.
Using re-recorded tapes lowers the integrity of the tapes and can leave
"bleed-through" material left behind from the previous recording.
And, of course, previously used discs should never be reused. This includes
cd-rw and dvd+/-rw discs. I do not use them and and do not wish to recieve
- I trade tape-for-tape and disc-for-disc regardless of length. That is,
I do not try to equate for the number of 60 min, 90 min, or 100 min tapes
or the overall time on the cdrs in the trade. Rather, I just try to equate
the overall number of tapes and discs being traded.
- I do not use (and do not want) DolbyTM noise reduction unless requested. If you do want DolbyTM noise reduction used, please specify "B" or "C" level
- I do not cut songs between sides of a tape or between tapes. If there is
not enough room for the complete song, I will put the complete song on
the next side of the tape or on a new tape. I expect the same in return.
The only exception to this is if the song on the tape that I have (or the
master recording) are already this way.
- I do add (and like to receive) "filler" material to fill in any
blank spaces that may result from not cutting songs (see above) on tapes.
In general, if there is less than 2-3 minutes of blank space on a tape
- I'll leave it blank; but if there are 4 minutes or more of space I try
to find enough material to fill in the blank space on the tape. Also, the
material I use tends to come from the same artist or band from which the
main recording comes.
- I do NOT add filler material to video tapes, cdrs, or dvds (unless specifically
requested). I also prefer not having any filler material added to my video
tapes, cdrs, or dvds unless I request it.
- I DO NOT trade for blank video tapes, cdrs, or dvds. However, if you have RoIO
material on cd or dvd disc but cannot create a copy yourself, then we may
still be able to make a cdr trade. I will trade one (1) audio tape for
each cd/cdr you lend me. I will trade one (1) cdr or dvd for each cd/cdr
or dvd/dvdr set that you lend me. Just send me your cd/cdr (with the artwork)
and I will burn my own copy, then return your originals with the trade
- I am willing to trade for blank audio tapes. The standard trade is two
blank tapes per recorded audio tape. Adjustments to the (2:1) trade ratio
will be made for larger trades (e.g., 16 blank tapes: 10 recorded tapes).
I may even consider larger trades for blank tapes. Note that I will record
your requests on the blanks you send and keep any additional tapes as part
of the trade agreement (eg., if you send me 16 blank tapes- I will record
10 tapes for you and keep 6 blanks for myself). Note, the additional tapes
are requested to offset the cost of shipping and handling fees.
- For trades with blanks, you MUST send the blank tapes to me ahead of time. I will use any brand of tapes
you send to record your selections but I do expect Maxell brand tapes (see
earlier guideline for list of types) for the additional blank tapes in
- I am also open to trading recorded audio recordings in exchange for video
recordings. The standard trade is 2-3 audio tapes per 1 video tape, or
2-3 audio cdrs per 1 dvd. If interested in this option, let me know and
we can discuss it.
- Finally, if you have ANY questions or do not fully understand any of the
guidelines above - ask them NOW. It is much easier on everyone involved
to work things out ahead of time rather than try to fix any problems or
