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 FACES : Five Guys Walk Into A Bar (CD1)

Here's the first of a four parter...Absolutely superb Faces box set compiled by Mac himself. Album tracks, B Sides, live stuff, loads of unreleased material, early rehearsals, hotel room demos & more. Essential...

Dedicated to the ongoing support of Martin & Pauli.


  1. The greatest rock and roll band in the world bar none...defo!
    Got this on every cd, computer, ipod etc etc - totally unmissable, every home should have one.
    Got some really dodgy cassette recordings from Crystal Palace gigs somewhere...probably best left buried tho'.
    Looking forward to more ska and Aretha.
    Thanks for all your hard work - Be lucky!
