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 !

THE JAM : Farewell Tour Gigs, December 6 - 9, 1982

Further reposts, due to the original shared files being deleted / removed. Very inconvenient & a pain in the arse though par for the course in the blogging world...

Due to file problems, I have reconverted these to MP3 (@ 320) from the original Cd's.

The historic final gig (Brighton, 11/12/82) repost is on the way soon...

Dedicated to Lee Bardsley (Vesperados SC) who was at the Manchester Apollo gig...

Royal Spa, Bridlington, 6/12/82

Manchester Apollo, 7/12/82

Stafford Bingley Hall, 8/12/82

Civic Hall, Guildford, 9/12/82


  1. I was the the Guildford show and had my cassette machine confiscated on the door. Ticket was a fiver and it was a blistering show.

    Thanks for posting and sharing.

  2. Big thanks for these shows Skamanc.
    Realy worth the hard work needed.
    Take Care.

  3. For someone who's been collecting vinyl lp's with The Jam since the mid 80's it's amazing to see how much more recordings there is out there than those that made it to vinyl. Many thanks for sharing!

  4. No worries & thanks for taking the time to post your comments.

    Intrigued by your vinyl collection Martin - if you decide to share any of the albums / files then please give me 1st shout for the blog.

  5. Just love The Jam and saw the amny times I was at the Stafford gig which was 1st of October 1982 :) Is there any chance you could re-upload these as the files have been deleted and I would love the Stafford gig Many thanks Daz

  6. Sorry I might have been a bit hasty as I just tried the Bingley hall Birmingham file and its downloading now :)! Just love your blog its a goldmine for any fan of good music - just love the Jam live - Brilliant you had to see them - they were electric live! - Dazzer
