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.

glad i'm not the only collector of these EMI compilations of the early 8-0's, mine are vinyl copy's not tape.

i'll never part with em' in fact i've stocked up and i've got upto 4 of each " 81 rocks on " etc etc.
same with the 'ripper' compilation series from the 70's.

they just simply don't compare with todays easily charted rubbish filled compilations.

Well done

i have this vinyl at home - i've also got the tape and lp of the Starstruck album, what a shame that it has never made it to a CD release.

This would have to be my favourite 80's compilation *Ever*.

It got chewed up in a dodgy tape player once, but I loved it so much I actually pulled the tape out and ever so carefully put it back together. It was never the same, of course, but I wasn't prepared to give it up completely.

My Dad just passed away & we found this tape in his stuff! I was born in 1982, so I like to think he got it for me. But my Dad & I's favourite song Berserk Warriors is also on there - a special tape for lots of reasons :)

Hi Meggsy. Is it possible to re-up this file as it is no longer available. Thank you for all the work you have done to bring this music back.
