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 !

Excellent item this morning - early-ish Jam live boot from the El Mocambo, Toronto, Canada, March 21st, 1978. (A sought after Elvis Costello live bootleg was also recorded here). Great, rare track listing in that there are few tapes / recordings still in existence from this period. This sees a selection from the first two albums plus a handful of early singles tracks. Just uploading some more Jam material - selection of out-takes & demos from 1975 - 81... watch this space. Comments & feedback is, as usual, more than welcome... its only a handful of faithful blog regulars that seem to be leaving anything at all, despite the always very healthy download figures from Rapidshare...c'mon, get in touch !!!
