Hi and thanks for your interest in doing a trade with me. I know this is a lot of reading, but it's important - please read this carefully...

If you haven't yet read my trading policy, I suggest you do so before proceeding.

Below is my current want list. The availability varies from title to title - anywhere from "currently in print and found at almost any store" to "out-of-print & darn near impossible to find". If I know any specific information about an item (like how many tracks are on it, what record label it's on, catalog number, etc.) I have indicated so in parentheses. Many items (especially the singles) on this list are out-of-print, so don't go nuts looking for one particular item -- but remember, singles may be cheap since they only have a few tracks (especially on eBay). Got a favorite local record shop? I suggest you check the 'imports', 'CD singles', 'various artists / compilations', and 'used' CD sections. If you need to know what the easy ones are to find, look for the Amazon logo or just ask me - I can help you out. Generally, I do not accept CD-R/CD-RW copies -- but if a title is rare and long out of print, a CD-R copy of it may very well keep me happy until I find an original -- so please let me know if you own any titles on my wantlist.

As soon as you get something on this list, let me know what it is as soon as possible, as I likely have other traders looking for the same titles. Save your receipts just in case! You must WAIT UNTIL YOU HAVE MY APPROVAL BEFORE YOU SEND ME ANYTHING. Once you have my approval, I will e-mail you my mailing address. At that time, please type out your full mailing address for me so that I may get your package ready. To save time, feel free to have it/them sent directly to me - but obviously it's your call.

If you send me an item that is not on my wantlist, or you send me an item that I have not given you the OK for, you may either 1) send me a postage-paid mailer and I will mail it back to you, or 2) once you send me an approved wantlist item I will send the unapproved one back to you with your video(s). Promotional copies will be accepted only if 1) I am looking specifically for a promotional title (marked with PROMO on my wantlist), or 2) it has the same tracks, artwork, and booklet as the standard commercial release. Used copies are OK as long as they're not missing anything.

If you tell me you're sending me a particular item, and then a reasonable amount of time passes (I'd say a month) and I still have not received the item, I will assume you have lost interest in trading with me and are not sending it at all, and it will go back on my wantlist. Please stay in touch!

Due to some unfavorable past trading experiences, I ask that you send me my package before I send out your video(s), unless I have traded a few times with you before. I'm a very trustworthy soul, and I can provide references from past traders if needed.

Keep in mind, I don't go to the post office every day. After I receive your package, it may take up to a week for me to get to the post office to send your package out. If you want your package from me mailed out to you the next day, include $4 worth of stamps in the package you send me -- that way I can just drop it in the mail.

PLEASE CHECK THIS LIST OFTEN! It usually changes once a week.

And finally - try not to laugh while looking over my list! I grew up during the '80s and my musical tastes are VERY varied :) Thanks, and happy hunting!
