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 !

Feel free to give me a shout : waltjabsco@hotmail.com

Chess Chicago Originals : Blues & R&B

A cracking compilation from the Chess series this afternoon. This consists of blues & R&B type material fro the vaults of the famed Chicago record label. Artists include Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, Muddy Waters, Etta James, Sonny Boy Williamson & more. My favourite is the original version of the much covered "Susie Q" by Dale Hawkins, featuring the great guitar of James Burton (who went on to play in Elvis' band for years). Download & enjoy some class tunes... http://rapidshare.com/files/352148629/Various_Artists_-_Chess_Originals.rar
