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 !

Power to the Motown People !!

Here's an interesting compilation from the Motown archive, spread over 2x cd's. Some very familiar names together with the more obscure, linked by a theme of Protest and Civil Rights. We tend to forget these days that Racial Segregation was practiced in certain US states until the 1960s. In fact, during the early Tamla Motown days, in some places it was illegal for an album sleeve to show a photo of a "negro" ! Thankfully we live in slightly more enlightened times... I hope ! As usual, download & enjoy - would love comments as always ! http://rapidshare.com/files/350306963/Various_Artists_-_Power_To_The_Motown_People___Disc_1_.rar http://rapidshare.com/files/350286767/Various_Artists_-_Power_To_The_Motown_People___Disc_2_.rar
