  1. Hi, Just found your fantastic blog by chance. Some excellent stuff on here. Is there any chance of a reup on the Gary Numan 12″s – Such Music For Chameleons etc please? Thank you. Merry Christmas! Best wishes M

    1. Will do ! “Music For\” and …..? πŸ™‚

  2. Hi, thanks for the kind reply; the other Numan 12″s that I was looking for were; White Boys And Heroes (12β€³), Warriors (12β€³), My Dying Machine (12β€³), She’s Got Claws (12β€³), We Take Mystery (To Bed) (12β€³) – I am really grateful for all your kind efforts. Thank you. Best wishes M

  3. Hi, found your blog on a random google search for an album I can never find (Systems of Romance – Dare the Dance) – been looking for more of this forever (20+ years) it has a fave song (Shadows) among others from an old skateboarding video I used to have. Was so excited to find your page about it, but even the 2017 link says expired, any chance for a re-up? Also, is it in 320k or FLAC? Being so rare, I’m hoping for a decent copy. Thanks! (Wish I could find a handful of other songs/bands from that video which seem to be from almost non-existant bands!)

    1. I’ll sort this out for you. The blog is quite a beast to maintain. I think it’s 320 MP3 like a majority of the stuff.

      1. Done and re-upped! πŸ™‚

      2. Thank you so much! Happy Holidays and New Year!

  4. Hey, first, holy shit! what an archive! This is incredible! Seriously! I have a lot of vinyl myself.
    I was wondering if you can remember an 80’s female musician. For the life of me I cannot remember her name. I want to say Joan, or Kim … but a google search is not bringing up anything. She had a keyboard and I would classify her in the same group with Thomas Dolby or Peter Gabriel (80’s version) Her sound was different. I don’t know if she had any major ranking hits.
    Also, she had one album that was a lot like Grace Jones, Slave to the Rhythm. It was like a story … or something. … I believe she had blond or light colored hair.
    Anyway, if this rings a bell, I’d greatly appreciate any suggestions, should you have any.

  5. Found her – Laurie Anderson ….. sigh ….. that was killing me lol

    1. I thought you were thinking of the great Anne Clarke for a minute πŸ˜€

  6. Dear djjedredy, any chance of The Fall’s singles appearing in this most excellent blog?

    1. Never really got into them, sad lost to music tho’ !

  7. Hi,very nice Blog,thx for your all uploads!
    Have you maybe Gran Records β€Žβ€“ GR-2319,GR-2321,GR-2322,2323 releases?

  8. Wow! You have some great stuff! Good to see things that weren’t “Top Ten.” Could you re-up “Red Flag – Broken Heart”? Many thanks!

    1. I never did Top Ten Ned! πŸ™‚

      1. I could tell you were “deep!”

      2. And one more, also expired, and then I’ll leave you alone for a while! – Warren Zevon – Leave My Monkey Alone (US 12β€³)

    2. I know you’re “deep” into other things, but when you get a chance, could you please add “Duran Duran – All She Wants Is (US Promo 12β€³)” to my re-up request list? Thanks!

  9. Whoa! Just went through “01 Broken Heart (Extended Remix)” in Adobe Audition and can see (and hear) the rip has zero noise. How do you do that? Especially impressed by the fade.

    1. Of course Chris but next time please put your request on the actual post not here, I can keep track of them better πŸ™‚

  10. I really love your site, this is the 1st time that I’ve made a request. I have been searching for 2 albums from a Pittsburgh band called The Silencers. The albums are Rock N Roll Enforcers (1980) & Romantic (1981). Any chance you might have these?

    1. Sorry don’t have these but will put it on my “Must Find List!” πŸ˜‰

    I’ve been following your wonderful blog for a while now, and it’s full of the stuff I love from my main record buying era . Keep up the good work!
    Any chance of a re-uppage of Black’s – Black CD/Vinyl (8 track mini album).? I have both 12β€³s that make up the comp, but, sadly, they’re both well worn now.
    Cheers, Martin.

    1. No probs mate , will do tomorrow πŸ˜€

  12. Hello my friends, iΒ΄ve been searching for years the song: Jane (Perfectly Extended) by the band Perfect day
