I don't know about everyone else, but I get a little fed up sometimes when trading tracks, beacause of all the crap I get sent.

You know what I mean. Fakes, fan mixes, live tracks traded described as studio tracks; composites; the eYe tracks; fiddling with stereo affects, the list goes on.

I don't blame people of this, very often they might not realise what they are trading is crap.

Personally I would never trade a track unless I knew what it was, and I was confident it was genuine.

So, as a community can we come up, or do we already have, some basic rules around trading. A guide to 'best practice' if you like.

I welcome your thoughts

People are simply lazy. Most of them don't even know what they have, they don't listen to the tracks they download. Back in the old days, we were eager to hear every "new" demo or B-side or remix. We hardly ever made a mistake and we definitely didn't spread fakes (at least when it comes to studio tracks). It's funny that now - when there are plenty of websites and forums where everybody can find out info about the real and fake tracks - people seem to spread fakes more and more.

Read, learn, research, think. Trust no-one. Deny everything.

P.S.: Best advice for the newbies - buy Queen The Eye before start to trade, and they won't fuck you up...

Personally I would recommend www.pemcom.demon.co.uk/jason/home.htm (bit out of date now, but very good for older stuff; www.ultimatequeen.co.uk and JSS's Ultimate Collection thread here.

If you research properly there is no excuse for trading fakes

Pesonally I recommend buying actual records - you'll get a lot less fakes, plus you'll know what's official and what's not.

As I said, I would never trade a track if I didn't know what it was. I didn't know what this was, so I uploaded a 45 second sample and asked for help. Is that so wrong?
