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 !

  2. The Impressions perhaps never got the esteem deserved. Somewhere in a box of vinyl I have a double lp of The Impressions, which I used to regularly play, bought over 30 years ago in a department store sale (Debenhams in Manchester?); back when department stores sold records, and in January sale would try to get rid of the unsold, more obscure vinyl - got several Funkadelic/Parliament, and Ornette Coleman on Blue Note lps that way.
    Incidentally I got the same message as the previous poster.
    The day I go digging out my vinyl and transferring to digital gets ever closer.
    Keep up the good work.

  3. Nice blog, and seemingly great collection of Impressions' tunes, but the rapidshare link says "file not found"
    would appreciate a re-upload if possible.
