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 MARK FOUR (& Mark Five) Complete Recordings

Essential listening today - compilation of the handful of singles released by The Mark Four in 1964 & '65, before they became Mod - Pop Art Freakbeat heroes The Creation. Please leave a comment or three...

10/8/10 : NEW SHARECODE added - file can now be downloaded. DO NOT miss this gem!!! Thanks to David for reporting the broken link.


  1. How do, me again (the City/Medway fan) - getting an odd message in Rapidshare about it not being fully loaded(?) - any ideas?



  2. Cheers David. It seems that the file didn't upload fully - only 1074kb went up rather than the 53,000 or so required. I'm reuploading now & will add the new sharecode to the post with a note confirming when this has been done. I was a bit surprised that nobody had downloaded this gem...

  3. All repaired & file is now fully downloadable. Thanks again David !

  4. Cheers for this one, Skamanc!
    Haven't been around for ages. Glad to see you are still here and putting out the good stuff!

  5. Good to see you again Chris. Thought of you recently when "Shakin' All Over" was played on the radio...

  6. found this blog very late - any chance of new d/l link for The Mark Four Complets compilation

  7. Hi friend,
    The link is broken, please post new link of Mark Four...
    Thanks advanced
