I am new to this forum but a huge 80's music fan and have quite a large collection of mp3 albums that span the 70's all the way to today. There seem to be quite a few MFV albums your site has transferred to cd-r and while I understand they are not for sale, I am interested in knowing how exactly you do trades and if there is a list somewhere of things you are interested in. I'm not sure I have anything you guys don't but since this is only place I've ever seen any of these albums in mp3 format I thought I'd take a chance that there might be some arrangement that might be made. Thanks a lot

Hello, I'm new here, but not new to New wave by a long shot. What you guys are doing for music is great. Do you accept donations through Paypal? I'd be interested in getting a few titles I don't alreay have.

You're best bet would be to email Jim (aka Eno) at: <a href=""></a>. I know he is accepting PayPal. Some of the titles (roughly 25) I contributed to the series, but he's really the main point of contact.

OK, here's the run down on MFV and Obscure80s.....

MFV began life 3 years ago as a fun idea 'tween two friends. I would transfer vinyl to CD-R and clean up most of the pops and clicks and my buddy Jim would do the artwork. We even came up with a name

Thanks for the response, Mike. No problem on the delay. I actually already emailed Jim and he's sending me some stuff this week. Looking forward to it, you guys are great! A wonderful idea, doing this. I have some friends who have done vinyl rips so

I just tried to E-Mail Eno, but it got bounced back saying the mail box is full.

Please contact me as well in regards to MFV, since I'm the poor sap who cleans up all the vinyl anyway!

Then again, Jim does have the most current list. I just keep knocking the titles out while he puts them in some kind of
