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

Boomtown Rats : A Tonic For The Troops & San Diego (1979)

More Rats as promised... first up is the excellent "A Tonic For The Troops" album, followed by a live set from San Diego, California, 1979.



I have more Rats material though some files appear to be corrupt. Assistance would be more than welcome - files by e-mail, sharecode or even cd-r / data dvd...
