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.

Touche' [1982]

I have something a little bit different today. This wasn't actually my album but was "inherited" along with a few others which I am working on posting soon. Don't you just love Ex's? Anyway I couldn't scan the cover and it has taken me ages to find a picture of the cover but today I struck gold thanks to this site. Its an odd offering with double ups of artists but a great tracklist to say the least. I have been off work sick for a few days but today finally felt human enough to get back into uploading so along with this I have also added a link to 1982 Out Of The Blue. Enjoy!!

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.
