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.

Meggsy - I love you *sniff*. I spent hours reading through the blog looking at all the albums. It was fantastic.

1986 Out Now was one of my first cassettes.. I don't mean to pester, but is there any chance of getting this uploaded?

Would have been Christmas '85. It would have been well out of print by late '86. My LP also contains an EMI music survey that came with some issues at the time.
