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

TRAFFIC : Perfumed Garden (Radio / Live tracks 1967-8)

Fantastic - what else can I say ? One of my favourite outfits of all time. Highly influential stuff & a joy to be able to share with my discerning blog followers. Here's a dead set treasure trove of rare studio & radio tracks from Stevie Winwood, Dave Mason, Jim Capaldi & Chris Wood. A gross danke schon to our friend Herr Pauli for this. More Traffic stuff to be found elsewhere on the blog, plus there's a Live John Barleycorn file from 1973 to follow soon.

Dedicated to the late Chris Wood, Jim Capaldi & Dave Mason. Plus to Anthony "Jethro" Wheeler - rest in peace my old mate.
