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 JAM : Rockpalast (German TV) Dusseldorf 30/11/80

I watched this on DVD rcently & thought a re-post was well over due. Excellent track list & performance, preserved for posterity by our friends @ Rockpalast. There is some confusion over the venue - I've seen both Dusseldorf & Dortmund on different files, cd's & dvd's over the years. though mine says Dusseldorf & I'll stick with that...
