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 !

Received this cd as a pressie this morning & after my initial apprehension decided that it wasn't bad at all. The title (like 1000s of previous, similar compilations is a bit dodgy), & you'll either love or hate the "Sound Affects" pastiche cover. Some tracks are derivative & veterans of many previous comp's, though one or two really stand out & make this an interesting addition to the collection. All in all, well worth downloading & sticking onto a CD to play in the motor...

1. Small Faces Tin Soldier 2. The Fleurs De Lys - Circles 3. The Eyes - I'm Rowed Out 4. Dusty Springfield - Little By Little 5. The Supremes - Love Is Like An Itching In My Heart 6. Martha Reeves & The Vandellas - Show Me The Way 7. Rod Stewart - I'm Gonna Move To The Outskirts Of Town 8. Alex Harvey - Agent OO Soul 9. Billy Nicholls London - Social Degree 10. The Marvelettes - I'll Keep Holding On 11. Yvonne Baker You - Didn't Say A Word 12. Etta James & Sugar Pie DeSanto - Do I Make Myself Clear 13. Billy Stewart - Secret Love 14. Timebox - Beggin' 15. David Bowie - Can't Help Thinking About Me 16. Tony Jackson & The Vibrations - Fortune Teller 17. P.P. Arnold - (If You Think You're) Groovy 18. The Impressions - Meeting Over Yonder 19.
