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.

Another great album! My bro's vinyl copy is stuffed/warped/scratched and the cover was scribbled on. Thanks! 2 thumbs up :)

My favourite track on this (along with the others) is Who Made Who - AC/DC, it's a good rock track. Not crazy about Samantha Fox so much these days, although her 'Touch Me' song was a hit back then. heh :o)
