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

MADNESS : Palace Theatre, Los Angeles, 27/2/84

Here's a good quality soundboard recording, very kindly sent in this afternoon by Bud the Wiser. This is from the American leg of the 1984 tour & is well worth a download, now all my share host issues have been resolved. (By this stage, Barso had been replaced by Paul Carrick).

Please leave a comment or two of thanks for Bud please...

Coming next : Stooges Jukebox... 2007 Mojo CD compiled by Iggy Pop...
