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 HIGH NUMBERS (The Who) Live 1964

Sheer class & an absolutely essential download / addition to the collection. This has been drafted for a long time & I've just been saving it as a treat for all you bloggers. It's been such a cracking weekend, with the competition win & well over 1000 hits a day so her it is... The earliest surviving material by The 'oo (under their temporary monicker The High Numbers). A very interesting mix of live & early studio demo tracks showing their Soul & Blues influences (Tamla Motown stuff, Bo Diddley, Howling Wolf, Chuck Berry, Booker T & The MGs, Rufus Thomas). Reasonable sound quality bearing in mind its rarity so stop reading this crap & click on the flag NOW!
Dedicated to The Ox & Moon the Loon.
