Live List

Here's a list of live Carlos related shows I have.  I have encoded ALL of the shows to .mp3 files (192 kbit) and have burned them to 3 DVD's.  You can take the  DVD's and put the songs on your computer, iPod type device, or burn them to your own CD's.  Some home DVD players can play back .mp3 files too so you can pop the disc in your player and listen to the shows on your home system.  This way you get all of the shows on 3 DVD-R's and it's really easy for me to make the copies for you.  If you want CD' of just certain shows, I can do that too.  Whatever you like, I can do.

I will trade for blank DVD-R's or whatever you may have to trade.  Just email Frank and we'll work something out. Have old audio, video, photos, handbills, ticket stubs, or ????  Just let me know and I can get them onto CD's for you (video, photos, audio can all be preserved digitally!).  Don't have anything to trade?  No sweat, just send a couple blank DVD-R's along with a buck or two for return postage and you can have all that you see below.
