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 !

Big Star : Keep An Eye On The Sky (Part 1) - Alex Chilton In Memoriam
"Keep An Eye On The Sky" is a fantastic 99 track (over 4x CDs) Big Star retrospective / box set. I've had this for a while & have been waiting for the right time to post it. I received many favourable messages about the "Best of Big Star" post and had just finished uploading the files with this in mind when word reached me about Alex Chilton's death yesterday (17th March). As a result, I'll be posting the set in four parts, all respectfully dedicated to the late, great Alex Chilton & Chris Bell. As usual, comments are very welcome.
