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 !

DEXY'S : One Day I'm Going To Soar album sampler (2012)

I was delighted to receive an electronic copy of this album last night courtesy of Big Gaz, who was apparently responding to my recent appeal for help with blog matters.

Been listening to it on and off all day, and its grown on me like you wouldn't believe !! Excellent songs and performance, and a great "comeback" by Rowland and Dexy's. (The "Midnight Runners" part of the name has apparently been dropped).

Here are three selected tracks off this fine new release - download it, have a listen & please post your comments, thoughts & the like.

Back on that borrowed laptop here in McDonalds... there's limits on how long I can nurse a single cup of cold coffee so I'd better post this & get going... !!

Just noticed that this is the blog's 950th published post - we should mark the 1000th with something really special...
