The place to trade mp3's on
CD-R via snail-mail!

I have an MP3 collection of the Hot 100 of the 1980s and am GIVING AWAY sets (28 disks) to anyone that would further share/pass on these MP3s.

It took me a little over 2 years to amass this collection. I began around June, 2000 and finised December, 2002.

The top 40 songs of the 80s are really easy to get, I got them all in the days of Napster. There were usually multiple versions of the top 40 songs being shared on Napster.

As you go further and further down the hot 100 listing the songs become progressively harder and harder to find. I spent alot of sleepless nights hanging out on Napster servers, than Audioalaxy, then Morpheus (the old Morpheus which I liked better) and came up about 100 songs short (around December, 2001).

I then began buying CDs that had songs needed. A good example is the Nightwalking CD by Alisha from 1986 which contains the song "Into My Secret" which charted #97 for one week. This was expensive (about $15 each for CDs of this rarity) and I could only go so far with this. At this point (around July, 2002) the missing songs were vinyl-only early 80s tunes which explains why the MP3s are hard to find - vinyl rips are techically harder than CD rips. The CD was not introduced into the US until 1983 so most of these songs are pre-1983.

I don't have the equipment for vinyl rips and the missing stuff was vinyl-only at this point so I started snail-mail trading with other people to further complete the set. One 80s vinyl rip person from helped me with 4 tunes. Another guy I met on the net - ChukyG from - helped me with most of the remaining songs but he was still missing the song Shamus M'Cool - American Memories.

I did some research on this tune, it came out on an obscure record label (Perspective Records) from Astoria, Queens, NY that is now defunct. It charted as high as #81 for three weeks in July, 1981. There is basically no info on the artist on the Web and there are several Perspective Records on the Web, all of them diffrent from the one I was looking for. This album is vanishingly rare even on vinyl, I found it on several want lists with offers as high as $50 for it which is unheard of for vinyl. No one is listing it for sale.

Then I ran into DJDaffy quite by accident at the who was able to get me that one MP3.







I like to share MP3 files of music mostly from the 1980s, but also some 1990s and current music. I have very little from the 1970s or before. My collection includes:

1. All of the US Billboard Hot 100 of the 1980s
2. All of the Album Rock Tracks and Modern Rock Tracks of the 1980s
3. Other music from the 1980s

I can trade either over the net or via snail-mail but prefer snail-mail.

Here is a link to the Excel list of the CD albums I have made MP3s from: List of Albums in Excel format

Here is a link to the full list of all MP3s I have: The BIG list of all MP3s (singles, albums, MP3s I got by downloading, trading, making myself, etc.)FILESIZE WARNING - This is a 3.35 meg text file and takes a long time to load if your connection is slow.

Here is a list of albums that I have personally made MP3s from. These are all 160 KBPS constant bitrate MP3s and faithfully reproduce the sound on the CD. In many cases I have improved things by correcting offsets, normalizing overly loud or soft CDs, etc. Most of these are obscure, hard to find albums from the 80s and not-in-print. Keep in mind that I prefer to download my MP3s, it is faster than making them from CDs but if nobody is sharing the MP3 I will seek out the CD to make the MP3s myself. I have a much more extensive collection and if you are looking for something in particular it is best to check the BIG list:
