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 !

DAVID BOWIE : The Lost Beeb Tapes (1967 - 72)

To say I was delighted to received this on data dvd from Pauli is a massive understatement. I recorded this from an FM show one Christmas about 20 years ago (onto a chrome C90 - remember them ??) and played it until the tape simply wore out. I never managed to find a repeat or a decent copy until now.

What a class bootleg & one I am honoured to be able to share with all you bloggers. This is essential stuff - god bless the BBC for saving these performances. Needless to say this is already on CD & will be a permanent fixture in the car...
