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

DUSTY SPRINGFIELD : The Complete BBC Sessions

Here is a compilation of all known surviving BBC sessions recorded by Dusty, from 1963 onwards. A lot of stuff was wiped in those days to reuse audio & video tape. Occasionally some "lost" gems resurface, often "rescued" by BBC staff at the time... 

PS Please leave a comment or two.... 65 downloads (as I type) of Dusty's complete a & b sides, with only a couple of feedbacks...
