Who doesn't love a good cover version of a great song? This CD swap is all about covers--songs performed by someone other than the original artist.

You'll have three partners for this swap. You should send each of your partners a CD with at least 12 cover songs on it. Please, please, please include a tracklisting, including the performer's name and the original artists' name (if you know it...let's face it, sometimes you just don't).

The sign-up deadline is July 16, 2006. Please make sure you've sent out your CD by July 31st, and remember to let your swap partners know when you're received their CD.

If you've got more than one rating of "1" (for not sending out your items), please don't sign up. Nobody loves a freeloader.

Have fun! If you have any questions, leave them here and I'd be happy to answer them!

Hi there: I'm a new swapper and am curious: should the 3 cds be of the same mix or can they be different mixes of covers? Thanks.

nanette 07/ 4/2006 #

They can be the same mix, since you're sending them to three different people.

hey nanette; i'd like to sign up for this, but i'm going away between july 17th & 31st. however, i can make the three mix cd's now & have them ready to mail, and then get the addresses on july 31st/aug 1st (not sure when exactly i'll be home) and send them in the mail immediately (so they'll only be a day or two late). would that be ok? i have lots of ideas for my mix :)

Do we get brownie points for CD art? :)

Ryan 07/10/2006 #

I say make CD Art if you really want to ... hopefully the mix warrants it. I have received mix CDs that look fabulous but contain songs that sound like doo-doo, and also nondescript CD-Rs with a simple tracklist on a piece of paper ... filled with songs that ROCKED. It's hard to say.

user2104 07/11/2006 #

ah. ok. quality it is!

Anyone opposed to receiving an mp3 CD vs. an audio file CD?

smaller (mp3) files=more songs on CD! :)

perezeeb 07/17/2006 #

heartheather--is that the main difference between the two?

TheShoppingSherpa 07/17/2006 #

Boo hoo - I burned my CDs last night and I must have done something wrong cause when I tried them in my stereo they didn't play. And they didn't play in my computer either.

Rats! Back to the drawing board to try and work out what happened. And I thought burning CDs was going to be easy peasy :-(

heartheather 07/18/2006 #

pretty sure. I'm use iTunes and I'm to convert tracks using Advanced > Convert selection to mp3 option. Alternatively, the program you use to burn your CDs may give you the option between an audio CD and a data/mp3 CD.

hope this helps!

TheShoppingSherpa 07/18/2006 #

Thanks Heartheather.

I've discovered that three of them play on my compter and on my CD walkman. Friends suggest my stereos are too old to cope with CD-Rs which is why they're not playing there.

I'm hoping that's right but if not I figure my swap partners can tell me they can't play the CDs and I'll send them new ones (by then I'll have it all figured out!)

I received two really cool looking discs in the mail today. I'm off to send my thank you messages now.

Annette 07/24/2006 #

I received a terrific CD from Shelley yesterday--Thanks so much!

Courtney 07/25/2006 #

I've received all 3 of my swaps. Thanks! I tracked mine and all 3 were delivered last week.

Shelley, I got your cd and love it! Thank you! -Annie

Would like to rate my person's who swapped with me... Can't figure out how to get it to show up is there a glitch going on? I loved my CD's! Jill sent a really great artfully created cd collection as well as the packaging!!!!

perezeeb 07/28/2006 #

the rating link doesn't show up until a while after the swap ends (after the date by which items must be sent). keep checking back. the link will eventually show up in the yellow box at the top of the page.

Nanette, I got your CD and can't wait to check it out. The track listing looks fantastic!

Annette 08/ 3/2006 #

I got two great CDs in the mail today! One from Annie and one from Ryan. Thanks!

perezeeb 08/15/2006 #

just my luck that the two people who didn't send cds are two of my three swap partners. oh well.

TheShoppingSherpa 08/17/2006 #

Perezeeb - if you email me your address I can burn you a copy of my swap CD and send it to you to try and make up for it - but it won't be for 2 weeks as I'm off gallivanting.
