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 Specials, Seattle 1/2/80
Decent recording of The Specials in Seattle, USA, Feb 1st 1980. Copied this for a mate this morning & thought I'd share it out a bit wider via the blog...this is under a new sharecode btw. Referred to on pages 143-145 of Sir Horace's excellent "Ska'd For Life" paperback, this gig was a support slot for The Police : "Jerry is pretty contemptuous of The Police and calls their bass player 'String'. Mr Sumner walked off, snarling. I imagine him thinking snotty support bands- they get in the way". Download, listen & enjoy, but don't forget to leave a comment or two. Ta !! http://rapidshare.com/files/349784046/The_Specials_-_Seattle_1_2_80.rar PS Here's the sharecode again for the Los Angeles Whiskey-A-Go-Go gig exactly one week later. Why not listen & compare... http://rapidshare.com/files/338007406/THE_SPECIALS_-_Whisky_a_Go_Go_8_2_80.rar
