Default Spreading the Beatlegs around: Take 1, Leave 1

This is a great way to spread the rare recordings about, while building up your own collection quickly. I stole it from a fella named Postal69 at www.backstreets.com (for any Bruce Springsteen fans out there, check it out!)

It works out quite well as long as everyone lives up to their obligation.

Simple to do:

You just choose the boot that you want(take one) from the posters list and list what you have to offer(leave one).

So everyone gets a boot and gives a boot, except the original poster(ME), who only gives one. So you are taking from the post that you replied to, and giving to the first person that replies to your post. It doesn't matter how many you leave, you just have to leave something for someone else to take.

Apologies to the bootless/burnerless this only works if you have boots to offer and burn.

here is a sample of how it works

Quote:
Poster #1
I am leaving these boots
Unsupassed Masters Vol.1, Unplugged, Sweet Apple Trax, Air Time and Ultra Rare Trax Vol. 2

Poster #2
Poster #1, I will take Sweet Apple Trax
and I will leave
Meet the Threetles, Sam Houston Colisseum and Five Nights in a Judo Arena
Bob, Poster#2@here.com

Quote:
Poster #3
Poster #2, I will take Five Nights in a Judo Arena
and I will leave
Wings Over Europe, Control Room Monitor Mixes, The Ed Sullivan Shows, Unplugged, Lost Lennon Tapes Vol. 7 and Unsurpassed Masters Vol. 5
John, Poster#3@here.com

and so on , and so on............
<font size="2" face="Tahoma, Arial, sans-serif">It would help if you put your name and E-mail address in your post so it is easy for the person sending to you to contact you to get your address.

So I'm going to start this off,
I am leaving:

THE DECCA TAPES

UNSURPASSED MASTERS VOL. 1

UNSURPASSED MASTERS VOL. 5

UNSURPASSED MASTERS VOL. 7

THE ED SULLIVAN SHOWS

GET BACK WITH DON'T LET ME DOWN & 22 OTHER SONGS (Yellow Dog)

Enjoy

Charlie H. (aka MalEvans)

another word for the process described above is weeding.

i'm a member of:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Beatlegsweed/

and

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Share_...guid=142783451

i quadrupled my bootleg collection in under 2 months, and made tons of great trading partners. however, the beatlegsweed group has strict rules about weeding (see the FAQ). it's fun for a while and 99% of the people are super nice to newbies.

i overdid it and i'm kinda bailing out slowly. it becomes a lot of time-consuming work. and trading itself, though it all evens out, becomes very expensive. i've gotten myself into a bit of financial trouble overdoing trades. oh well, i'm over it now [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

I haven't replied cause I wanted to wait to see if there is any interest in this, guess not.
I'll gladly take however "GET BACK WITH DON'T LET ME DOWN & 22 OTHER SONGS "(Yellow Dog).

And I will leave.

Gone Tomorrow Here Today midnight Beat. - The Beatles
Live In Japan walrus - The Beatles
Bring On The Lucie luna. - John Lennon
"B" Sides Himself fab. - Paul McCartney and
The Harri-Spector Show strawberry. - George Harrison.

It's against the rules I know, but there are only a few people coming here and one bailed out already, if there is nothing from the above that you like just browse through my trade list

If no-one replies, I guess I just do a trade with Charlie for the Yellow Dog cd, that is if you see anything that you like on my list Charl.
