Okay, I think I'm pretty good at rating sound quality. I'm not at all anal about time listings - although I try to get fairly close! I prefer CDR trades (as opposed to cassettes, minidisc, DAT, reel-to-reel...but I can trade in any of those formats if you have something I truly desire) and I prefer name brand discs.
I made up a few abbreviations for my list, so let me give a brief rundown of what they mean:
CDM: This is just a standard, mass-produced CD that I own (hence CDMaster)
VM: A vinyl LP that I own...transferred to a CDR. I am slowly transferring my fave boots to CDR - following my CDRs, I have listed the vinyl that I still have to transfer. Please don't hesitate to request transfers of a
ny of these LPs (since I have to do it anyway!).
CDR: A CDR that I made from one of my tapes, or received in trade.
The List will go like this: Title/Sound/Source/Time/Comment. Here goes...
Lexicon of Love Live: 9.5/CDR/70m: Martin Fry and Co. dish up a slick-sounding show. Early 90's show
