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

JONATHAN RICHMAN : Rockin' & Romance (1985)

1985 studio release from the mercurial Jonathan Richman. Enjoy this material & please leave a comment for Dave, who sent me a CD of this album...
download here...

I start full time College tomorrow (Auto Electrics) so I may well not be posting as prolifically as before - will try to post another gem 1st thing in the morning before I leave & then we'll take it from there. Thanks to everyone for the continuing support.


  1. Thanks for your postings, much appreciated. Rockin' & Romance link seems connected to Dead Kennedys, though. Or is only me?


  2. Thanks for pointing out the error Bruce. Sharecode has now been corrected to the right one !!

  3. Cheers for all the JR stuff (and a large chunk of the other stuff too!). Really looking forward to catching him live next month. Maybe I can sneak a recorder in...

  4. Enjoy the gig & please let me know if you manage to record the show...

  5. So much JR - this is just terrific. Thanks for more tunes from him. Too bad he doesn't like to do his old stuff in concert now (at least last time I saw him, unless he has changed his mind since) but there's so much to draw upon.

  6. many thanks, one of the couple of his I haven't been able to find
