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

THE R&B SCENE - Various Artists (60s UK R&B artists).

Thanks to my old mucker Steve of Colwyn Bay for this material. An interesting compilation of early-mid 60s British R&B from the Decca label offshoot Deram.. Some well known or later to be famous names & sidemen, with others completely forgotten or obscure.  Download & leave a comment or two for Steve...


  1. Cheers, mate.

  2. This is why we keep coming back :)
    Nice one !!!

  3. & I thought it was my natural charm & charisma lol

  4. Great comp. Well worth a listen. And how good is that Lulu track???

  5. Yeah. There's another Lulu track, "Surprise Surprise" (a Jagger / Richard song) on a compilation called "The Weekend Starts Here" which is a cracker.

    The Birds, featuring another Stone, Ronnie Wood, (on this post) were excellent - check my blog archive for a Birds compilation.
