Why I Do This

I was lucky enough to be a teenager through the eighties and I was mad on music, big hair, bad make-up and all that went with being a teenager of the times. All these years later I still have the big hair but now it is "touched" with grey and the bad make-up is gone but the tunes still play loudly in my head and even louder if they grace my radio, tv or mp3player. I will gladly admit to being a"mainstream" fan for the most part but I do have the odd liking for some of the less "played to death" bands of the time. What started all this was a drawer full of slowly decaying cassettes and a fear of losing the music that is on them. So I began to recreate them onto CD and I am loving it and finding some fantastic albums along the way.

I would like to re-dedicate this site to my late husband, he lost his long battle with cancer in 2011, he was a huge 80's fan, possibly even more so than myself. So for you my love.

It has been a banner week for finds.

I have had the best week. I was able to complete 4 more cassette to CD conversions so I am stoked. Now do remember that first and foremost I am a OZRock Gal but the 80's in general are my passion. I have been searching high and low and I have found some fairly elusive (well they were to me at least) tracks needed to complete the tracklists. I wanted to share what I have done so far. So here is where I am up to.

1981 Over The Top
1981 Rocks On
1981 The Sound
1982 In The Sun
1982 Out Of the Blue
1982 The Winners
1982 Up I Lights
1982 With A Bullet
1983 Summer Breaks

1984 Shakin

1985 Come Alive
1986 Just For Kicks
1986 Out Now
1986 Way To Go

Hits Hot '84/85

It has been fun wandering down memory lane to these tunes, classics at best.
