2000 f****king posts!! Months/years of my time spent. 592,012 views (at last look), 56 followers throughout the world, 1,645-best daily view, averaging around 900 a day.
So what to put on to mark this, my milestone ????
Can’t say I’ve prepared anything. What with at least 3 more “Tunes From Oz and Beyond” posts to put up. About 30 really interesting twelves from the 90’s, Mike “money’s-no-object” B providing the rarest slabs of vinyl this side of Jupiter and the few comments I do get (mostly requests!) it has been a blast! Thanks!
So last year this man died, unexpectedly and suddenly, amongst a raft of other great musical loses. For me his death was the most poignant as I had followed his career from the start. Seeing him develop from a synth influenced New Waver to an accomplished, folk infused troubadour. I met him a few years back and got this signed, shared a few sincere words of gratitude and departed, box ticked. He has the most lump in throat to song ratio of anyone I listen to.
From 1986 and in terms of stuff already on here it ain’t worth much (too me that doesn’t matter) but contains three great tracks recorded in a rawer state. The honesty of “Wonderful Life”, “Birthday Night” a personal favourite. The New Romanticism of “Everything’s Coming Up Roses” completes the trio.
