The End

Hello !! .. to All who Know About, or may Stumble across this Blog..

Today is April 16th, 2019..

& I've had this Blog running  for almost 8 years now...
and...oh, i dunno,..
as much as I have been Grateful for these LP Blogs
that opened up a world of exposure to Rare Records over the years,
it seems that doing it "this way",  is a totally passe'/dead  internet "fad" if you will,
and doing it this way  is Soooooo '10 years ago'...lol..
due mostly to the emergence of  i.e; iTunes, Spotify, Pandora, etc,..
but not to forget  YouTube
and their recent allowance of MUCH longer duration time (and then some)
to be on a Single Uploaded Video..

So,..with a Heavy Heart,... < {i'm Lying, i could give a shit!..lol}
this will be the EotL for this Blog  < at least as a "DL site"  that is,..

note; I WON'T take this blog down, NOR will i remove the DL links...
{i.e;. if This Blog / the DL links  go dead, blame Blogger / Mediafire,..Not Me..lol)
id actually like to keep this blog up  as a 'side conversation' < {whatever that means..}
but any more 'main additions'  will be moved to a Streaming YT Channel..

..this Link Directly Below is My 'Main' YT Channel,
& a " Sister Channel "  to it,  beneath that..
which is Focused more towards;
Strange/Odd/Weird/Bizarre/Obscure Records & Recordings..

     For the Love of Good Music

So  if you've enjoyed what i have shared over the years,
feel totally free to let me know in a comment,
and what i could do to make my YT channel(s) more appealing...

A Big Thank You to All who have Appreciated My Taste in Music !

See You on Zoo...
uh,..i mean; You Tube!

Voltage Brothers - Throw Down (1978)

                                Funk/Dance Group out of Rochester NY {i believe..}
                                                       Good Late 70's Funk,
                                              but i can't help giving an opinion,
                                that the Disco-ish tunes on this LP (while very enjoyable,)                                                                      were sounding a little 'Dated' by then,..
                                                  ..Even by '1978' Standards...
                                     {i.e.; .. the "Philly Soul Sound"  Went 'Out'  after 1976..}                                                                                                   

Matrix - IX (1977)

                              Horn Based 70's Jazz Fusion group out of Wisconsin
                                            This Release is Actually a Reissue
                                                 of their 1st LP from a year earlier,
                                            on Independent Label; Ultra Nova ...
                                                when they got signed to RCA
                                         More Info & Discography on this Group


WNOK 105 - Columbia, SC.
May 7, 1983

                     Here's a Treat for all of you Columbia South Carolina Residents,
                                                  ..who are more likely in the 45-55 y.o. Range for this...

          I found Old Dirty Cruddy 8 Track Tapes at the bottom of a Box at a Junk Store..
       and one of them, was this homemade recording from someone (in Col. SC obviously..)
                        taping snippets off of  105 WNOK Top40 Radio  back then...
               i won't get into what i had to do to make this playable after all these years,
                                    but i fixed the damn thing so i can transfer it.
                                           {you can see the actual transfer in progress a few posts ago,...
                                                             ...i know, like anyone gives a shit...lol..
                                 ... surprising  that someone was still messing with '8track tapes' in "1983"}

                                 It becomes Very Apparent early in the broadcast
                                       that it was taped off of the radio in 1983...
                                            and towards the end, the actual date
                          is indirectly revealed in a "Jewelry Warehouse" commercial....

 {also,..if someone can find me the 'old 105 WNOK logo' from the Early 80's, let me know in the comment section...thx}
                                            Note : Dare i mention the Obvious,..
                          though i did my best during the Transfer & Digital Clean-up,
                              This Recording by its Nature,  is Less than 2nd rate,
                                       Excerpts, Abrupt Stops between Songs,
                                          ...& Tape Hiss Galore..lol....enjoy!


Impact - The Pac Is Back (1977)

                                                  This LP Begs the Question;
                                                         Which Came First,..
                                                 Emotions - Best Of My Love?
                                                         ...or This Album?...


Hey Hey !, ...
Back with More ! ... lol

                             directly above, you'll notice a pic of the state of the art,
                                  high tech transferring process  in my Laboratory...

                                                      LOL... Ok, On with the Show...

Jeff Wayne Space Shuttle
theme from "Star Trek"
& "Planet of the Apes" {Apes' Shuffle}


                           at first glance, this looks like another mid-70's kiddy LP..
                           ..not really...
                           This LP is a Bizzare Hodgepodge/Mish-Mosh of
                           60's Surf / Groovy-Jazzy-Funky-Lounge {a'la spacey-synthesizer} /
                           & 2 - 60's TV Show themes {just Bizarrely  thrown on there..}
                           Listening to this whole album,
                           one could surmise, that this 'jeff wayne' dude, was a musician
                           that wanted to Cash-In on the geeky Sci-Fi craze of the time,
                           so he pressed to vinyl whatever was on his Revox tape machine
                           from the previous 10 years,
                           and threw that 'barely-correlated' theme on the cover...
                                {In Actuality,..this Album really has NOTHING to do with "Planet of the Apes".. lol..}
