Hey guys - inspired by another post here: I am, I guess, the increasingly rare Deadhead who collects tapes. I understand there are a lot of folks digitizing their old XLIIs these days, and I just wanted to post that, before you throw the tapes away, please write me! I can provide blanks (CDRs, natch) + postage, or money via Paypal (I know this is ethically weird, but all I have in exchange are other TAPES, with a few exceptions, so just putting it out there), or trades (I DO have about 40 or 50 shows on CD / iTunes, send me your wants!). I drive an 87 Dakota and my wife merely tolerates and does not love the Dead, so a lot of my listening time occurs while driving - and my truck only plays tapes. Also, not to get into an aesthetic debate, but I prefer the analog sound - yes, with speed fluctuations and all - to mp3s and CDs. I'm old fashioned that way.
Anyway, carry on! Great forum, glad I stumbled upon it.
