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

BLUEBEAT 45's Volume 1

Here is the first of 25 Volumes of Bluebeat Compilations sent in by regular contributor & all round blog friend Paul Baily. Thanks mate ! Essential additions to the collection with some class tunes. This volume features loads of Prince Buster - some rare & some more well known...Anyway, here's the first 20 or so of nearly 500 tracks.

It's such a scorcher today (20 degrees according to the car) that I'm in a Ska mood...

This is dedicated to Lee Bardsley & the Vesperados SC.
