The recordings on the lists below are available for trade only (i.e., not for sale).
Here's the deal. Physical media: I don't trade for blanks, I don't use re-writable
discs (CD-RW), and I record in real time or use disc-at-once at no more than 4x
with no SCMS. I am not interested in lossy source files (MP3, AAC, etc.). Non-physical
media: I will provide level-8 .flac files made from .wav masters. I can upload to
a number of file repository sites where you can retrieve the files. Whether we are
exchanging discs or files, please do the same.
Dates and locations are as accurate as I have been able to make them, but I'm sure
that some inaccuracies remain. Some venues, locations, and dates are unknown or
approximate. I will be grateful for any information that I can use to correct errors
or replace uncertainty.
In most cases I don't know the history of these recordings -- who made them and
with what gear, what generation they are, etc.
Quality (I use +/- for finer-grained distinctions)
A = Excellent: full sound, good highs, no clipping.
B = Good: some loss of highs, dull transients, clipping.
C = Poor: getting hard to listen to.
Sources of the music
RB = Radio broadcast (with details where known)
TV = Television broadcast (with details where known)
aud = Audience or band recording
SB = Studio or soundboard recording
Many of these recordings came to me originally as analog cassette tapes. In these cases the
analog-to-digital transfer was done using Nakamichi ZX-7, ZX-9, or CR-7A cassette
decks and a HHB CDR-800 recorder. In some cases I have corrected the pitch or done
other cleanup as needed.
If you want to search the collection for groups, locations, tunes, or musicians,
there is a query form designed for that purpose.
