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

JOE JACKSON BAND : Volume 4 (2003)

2003 album from Joe Jackson & band. Iniial copies included a free bonus disc of 6x live tracks from 2002, which is included here....
Please keep the comments, e-mails etc coming. My main PC will (touch wood!) be back up & running tomorrow afternoon so I'll be able to take the blog off the backburner. That is if Mrs Skamanc has paid the broadband bill...ain't life complicated ? I bought a T Mobile mobile broadband dongle as a back up - used the months data allowance in 2 hours. This means I can still surf unlimited though not up or download...


  1. Recently discovered your blog, and what a pleasure it is to recapture a little of my youth!

    Am I totally missing it, or are the links to Vol 4 and the bonus not there right now?

  2. Hi Andy & many thanks for your kind comment. Thankj you also for pointing out the sharecode error - a stray bit of html has now been repaired & both files can be downloaded as intended. Best regards, Skamanc.
