DO NOT use those fancy adhesive labels on your discs
I used to put them on my discs and they would look nice as I
would import all these cool colors and graphics and run them thru the color printer
over time, the adhesive interaction with the media rendered them useless
My CD player wouldn't read them, the ones it could read had an incredible
amout of static.
I was able to save about 100 or so recently but must have lost 100-150 discs...
Regarding essential 1980's shows (as that was the original topic)
in addition to what's been mentioned:
9/2/80 quite possibly the year's best show & a '77-esque Sugaree IIRC
6/30/85 killer Shakedown!
I am in the process of transferring 3000 cassette tapes to CD. As they are transferred, I no longer need the tapes. But I just cannot dump them in the trash. Right now I have about 1000 tapes in 2 large boxes in the garage. They are free for the taking. I live in San Rafael, CA. Send me a note firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
Best regards, Mark

3/20/1986 -- songlist nothing eye-popping however the show WAS ELECTRIC -- Every note with maximum energy -- BOBBY BOBBY BOBBY. Seek a high-quality audience tape of this show -- they are out there and will help complete your 80s quest
I don't have noncommercial recordings to trade. I can offer four blank CDs, two of which a friendly taper could keep, and the other two could be used to record the final set of the 13th. The recorded pair could then be mailed back in a stamped, self-addressed bubble envelope. I'm particularly interested in the 3rd set, the electric one with Dark Star/The Other One/Turn On Your Love Light.
I wish I had more to offer. If anyone is interested please contact me.

sorry, but trading for commercial releases is not allowed here. Even if they're out of print.
Hey now Timmay!
I know what you mean about the man coming between you and the music. No love for Rhino/Edgeboss here.
I have a friend who walking down the street in Greenville, SC recently, wearing his funky old SYF cap, and a guy stopped him and asked him if he wanted his GD collection: 1257 hours of LIVE DEAD on CD.
My friend ain't a deadhead. If you want it, let me know (PM me)
