WELCOME AND PLEASE READ BELOW!

I have revamped this page to make it easier to navigate, I hope you find that's the case. I welcome your suggestions and feedback to help me make this page better.

I've been trading Tori's music since 1992. I trade exclusively CDR, video, and VCD/DVD. Nearly all of my 1999-2002 shows are on CDR, and I'm always looking to find earlier shows on CDR. When browsing my list, please make note of what is on tape, and what is on CDR - on the pages where the earlier shows are, most of them are tapes but are slowly but surely being upgraded. If you ask for a tape to be converted to CDR (which I can do for you), please be aware that the quality does not always turn out great - I DO NOT claim to have excellent audio editing skills. In fact, when I convert a tape to CD, it is converted using a stereo component burner, and little or no editing is done to the actual audio files. If the original recording is very good, the conversion usually turns out the same. So please ASK about the quality of the recording before you ask me to convert it. If I'm aware of a CDR copy already circulating, I will let you know, and refuse to convert it - because I wouldn't want my converted copy floating around when there is a better version out there. If you are just planning to use the copy for yourself and not trade it, consideration will be given. There are already too many bad recordings out there.

My flat fee includes the cost of the discs, shipping and inserts and is reasonable. I DO take on some B&Ps when I can, but unfortunately some people have made it unenjoyable to do this by demanding basically my whole list or sending materials I can't use or have to use on someone else's equipment in order to be able to accomodate their requests. I have also not been given enough postage in the past, or "I.O.U.'s" that have never come through. I usually only accept B&Ps from those I know who do it right. If you really want a B&P please do not request more than 4 CDs at a time, and follow the instructions I give you (which are no different than the basic rules of B&P). If you do not, your package will be sent back to you.

I try to get the best possible copies of shows available. However, I do not claim to know that my copies are the best ones. I have often been asked why I don't rate the quality of the shows I have. This is because I believe rating is purely subjective, and want the people receiving the shows to judge for themselves since they will anyway. So instead of rating my shows, I will give you an idea of the quality when you ask. And if you are unhappy with anything you receive from me, I will either re-record or send you something else. I always want people to happy with the trade. I also always keep people informed of when I will mail their packages, and if you email to ask about the status of our trade, I always e-mail back promptly!

There is a new form on this site, I call it the "Rate-a-Boot" form. People are always telling me I should rate my boots, and I agree. But because I have difficulty doing that, and not to mention I have so many shows so it would be hard to review them all, I decided to let YOU do the rating. So if you have received a boot for me (this form should not be filled out if you want to rate a boot you *didn't* get from me, because I have no way of knowing whether its the same one or not), please rate it. This form is not just for the great shows that you would want to rate, but the ones that are not-so-great in quality as well! In fact, that's even more important.
