are big fun. It's been a quite sometime since Japanese promoters
started booking many tours of minor acts at smaller clubs around
Tokyo, which is totally unbelievable for a bit older fans like me,
for whom Bootlegs had been the only chances to experience
performances by legendary local heroes.
what a tempting word... Nishi-Shinjuku... Sanctuary for all
collecting rare unofficial stuff... But can you imagine how many
times I got disappointed and cried at home listening to vinyls
sounding like...shit..., which I spent quite a big money on? Too
noisy audience(they are not to blame, of course), unstable sound,
terrible edits in the middle of songs, wrong vinyls in the
sleeves(aaaarrrrgggghhhh!), etc, etc... What the hell is the ad "New
and better tape found!"(but sounds the same or even worse)? Why can
complete master tapes be found several months after the release of
incomplete editions so often?? Why are the limited copies available
forever(even at a bargain)???? Why can't I stop buying
said. My priority no longer goes to buying bootlegs. My intention is
quite simple... trade.
incredible progress of technologies, it's got so easy to contact
collectors all over the world through internet. In addition, sound
qualities of recording sources' got much better than they used to be
and can be easily copied digitally onto any media like DAT, MD, CD-R.
Ain't it better
for us to contact each other, talking about favorite bands, and to
trade whatever we like than spending 30 bucks on a crap???
Due to very
very limited time available for trades in my free time at the moment,
I don't think all e-mails will be answered unless your collection
gets me, sorry. . . . .
