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.

The vinyl version came with stickers - each sticker was one of those 'artists pictures' that was on the cover. i could never bringmyself to actually remove any ofthe stickers though.

The tape version also had the stickers (or was the person at the record store just being nice?) - I remember having them plastered on my wardrobe :)

I have this tape as well and was thinking of doing the same as you have done. You have saved me the grief of going into my loft and digging out my cassette player and plugging it up to my pc.. You get the drift as you've already done it. Only problem is.... The Zip is password protected, So I guess this is a request for the password please. On a related note I managed to acquire all the ch00nz for what I consider to be the greatest single disc compilation album ever released... 1982 Out of the Blue.
