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 !

DUSTY SPRINGFIELD : In London (Lost British Recordings)

A real classic here.... This compiles tracks from approx 1968 - 1971 that were released in the UK on the Phillips Label, though never made it over the Pond, as Dusty had signed to Atlantic (in 1968) and contractual problems stopped the licensing of the Phillips tracks in the States. I've spent several hours putting the tracks together from various sources and it was well worth the effort.

As always, comments are more than welcome.

...And here's a period clip of one of my faves (with live vocal) from the Tom Jones Show (1968)
