Welcome To My Blog

Thanks for checking the blog out... Hope it offers something a bit different every now & again. Though I come from a pseudo - Mod background (Soul & Ska in particular), I have a diverse taste in music & hope my varied posts will reflect this.

Cheers Skamanc .... I'm not after your undying gratitude, but please leave your thoughts, comments & opinions on the posts & content. I regularly up- & download material, plus buy and trade items. As such, if I have inadvertently "trodden on anyone's toes" in posting anything then please let me know & accept my apologies. Also please support the artists involved & remember that the blog is merely a pointer toward these various downloads, which are stored elsewhere. Legally, any downloads should not be retained for more than a week. So now I've told you the legal bit !

The Small Faces From The Beginning

Originally rush- released by Decca when the Small Faces left to join the Immediate label, this LP highlights thir blue eyed soul credentials admirably. Their faithful take on Booker T's "Plum Nellie" is wonderful, whilst Steve Marriott shows his mastery of the soul genre on three Tamla covers. "You Really Got a Hold On Me", "Baby Don't Do It" and "Come Back and Take This Hurt Off Me" are the standout tracks - have a listen & leave a comment. http://rapidshare.com/files/339326281/SMALL-FACESFromTheBeginning.rar
