Once in a while you get shown the light
In the strangest of places
If you look at it right

Magic is what we do. Music is how we do it.

Fare you well, fare you well
I love you more than words can tell
Listen to the river sing sweet songs
to rock my soul
- Brokedown Palace (Garcia/Hunter)

August 7, 1999
Dick "showed me the light" via his Dick's Picks series several years ago. Always a GD fan (since Terrapin first came out), I truly didn't understand the Dead until I rediscovered them in the 90's, when I stumbled across DP7, and thought to myself, "Wow, this looks cool!".

I've never met Dick, though I've read a lot about him in the last 10 days. I sincerely understand his joy in spreading the music. For me, that's what it's all about, helping someone discover something that touches their soul. I can't thank you enough Dick, for rocking my soul.

[ Red Light ] [ Red Light ]
Ever since my (forced) upgrade to Win2k, burning has been a long and painful process for me. As such, I'm not really looking for new trades, and am taking on very, very few B&Ps. Still, there's nothing wrong with dropping me a note asking for one or the other; just don't be too upset if I don't get back to you right away (or even at all).

Trade Guidelines

My basic list of trading guidelines:

Trade Status

If we already have a trade set up, and you'd like to check on the status, please visit my Trade Status page. If you don't know your trade ID, drop me a line at headlight@northbound-train.com or bnp@northbound-train.com.


Equipment Setup

Some info about my setup:

If you want more details on why I bought these drives (and where and how much), drop me a line at headlight@northbound-train.com. [So many people have dropped me a line that I created a FAQ]

An important note about the software I use:

I use Adaptec's Easy CD Creator. More importantly, I do not usually use EAC. There are folks who would only like to trade with others if they use EAC; hence my little disclaimer here. I have nothing against the program, however I feel it is unnecessary for me, and no one has said anything to convince me otherwise. I spent the extra money and went the extra mile in researching my purchase, so that I could do flawless DAE and accurate burns, CD to CD when possible. I choose not to take the extra time needed to use EAC because time, for me, is very precious. I go out of my way to document any imperfections in the source CDs, and if by some chance I introduce diginoise because I kicked my machine while doing the burn, then I will gladly re-burn and re-mail the CDs at my expense.

Note to Newbies

Having been one myself, I know what it's like to try and get started. Don't dispair! There are plenty of people out there willing to help out, myself included. If I have the time, and you have the disks, I'll copy anything you like. Just ask!

Don't let anyone rip you off with 2-for-1 deals, or extra postage or anything like that! If someone isn't willing to spend the time & energy to spread the music for the sheer joy of it, then they shouldn't be doing it! Please don't encourage these people; I'll burn anything you'd like, if I have the time; just ask nicely!

-=-=-=-=-=-
The way I see it, the music isn't mine, so who am I to hoard it?
- me

B&P Requests

[B & P == Blanks and Postage - you supply the CD blanks and pay postage both ways, I copy the shows. For more information, see Ed McNichol's most excellent B&P How-To.] Please don't think badly of me for putting these "rules" in place. I do upwards of 15 B&P deals a month, and these rules help make things run a whole lot smoother on my end.

In addition, here are some links to get you started:


(lambda) Live Free, that's the message! (rainbow flag)
