    Every where I look, it seems that the recordings I am looking for are only available as trades. How do I get started when I don't have any recordings like these to trade? I appreciate any comment you guys might have. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] Thanks!

    First of all, welcome to the Links! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] If you need any help, do what's called 2:1 trading. For every ONE boot CD, you sent TWO blanks. That way you don't have to buy any bootlegs and it's MUCH cheaper. I'll help ya out on that. Any particular shows you want? I have several in MP3 format if you want a bunch of boots on one disc. That saves lots of time if you have a CD burner. If you want just a regular audio CD bootleg, I'll help ya out that way. Any one you want? I have quite a few really. Tell me what you want and I'll see if I have it. If not, someone else will. I've traded with Greg, homeunit, and Cabo Kid. They're all friendly and prompt. Same with DiverDownInKY. Good luck!

    And one advice:

    Spend a little time finding out which shows are rare...

    And then request those shows from traders, it's the fastest way to get your collection growing...I started trading January this year and now I have over 50 shows and almost as much more is coming... [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Only 3 shows are from blank trades. (most traders are more willing to trade than only do 2:1's so this way is faster IMO)

    And Ken, I'm sure you'll soon find persons from this board willing to help you... [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    Can I suggest vhvault.com, we offer free VH mp3 downloads. With an additional FTP server that probably has about 50 boots on it right now.

    Your best bet, is in forums like this, and sites like vhtrading.com At that site you can post a profile and contact other traders with the same interests/needs, etc.

    Once you get your collection going, you will probably want to make a list of what you have to send to other traders (or in the form of a website on the net)

    Peace out.

    Boy, I sure did come to the right place! Thanks for all of the tips guys, it's kewl to get advise from a fellow VH Fans.

    The shows I am after are the US Festival in 83 (I was there!) and any Fresno shows. I got a direct reply from one person who said they would sell me a show, so if nothing else, look for me here with that one: I'll have it up for trade.

    Otherwise, I do have a lot of comercial CD's (apx 700, mabey 1/2 rock) if anyone has a need, I'll trade for Live VH.. or Who, or Rush, or Bad Company, or Scorps..... etc etc....but I REALLY want some VH from US or Fresno [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    Thanks

    Another good reason why I wish my CD player hadn't scratched one of my US Fest. discs. I have USA 1992. It's from Fresno. Has 2-second gaps though. [img]smilies/cry.gif[/img] It's pretty much the same as the live album, but isn't all polished up like RHRN is. It's better than RHRN anyway. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    I have both the US Festival and Live and Loud that was in Fresno in 1979 if your interested. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] Oh, by the way, I wouldnt buy any boots. Not to bad mouth the guy who is selling it to you, but there are traders out there that will do blank trades with you so you dont have to buy. Just some advice.

    Yeh, thats how I got my collection started - blank trades. I scoured vhtrade.com (which seems to have been bought out by someone??! EEEK!) for a guy in sydney and orginised some 2 - for -1 blank trades

    Then I made a little website, and added a profile to the vhtrade directory, and here at vhlinks.com. Within 2 months I pulled the links off, I had a pretty reasonable collection, and couldnt afford all the damn postage to the states LOL

    I've done some trading with a guy in France and postage wasnt outrageous. Is it that bad to the States from Australia?

    In that case I can understand how it might be expensive. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Hi folks!

    I'm new around here.

    Now I'd like to start trading [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    Problem is: only shows (of Van Halen) I have so far are the Toronto 1995 PPV and a radio broadcast of Pittsburgh 1998.

    All I could offer you is more than 100 Queen shows. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    Hope anyone (European) could help me out... either with Queen against VH trades or 2:1 trades.

    Thanks in advance and kind regards.
