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

Here's another Prisoners rarity - the live LP of a session played in front of an invited audience at Oakwood Studios, 23/9/84. Plus there's the added bonus of a Milkshakes set...

I'd just like to say a quick & sincere "thank you" to everyone who has logged on, downloaded, donated, sent files, left messages & in any other way helped the blog over the last 9 months. We're over the 90,000 hits mark now & I'll send a couple of data cd / dvd's to the 100,00 visitor, which will be reached in the next couple of weeks.
