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.

hello !!glad you're back...
Look, I've got this idea :
maybe you could make all tracks from tapes available separately
and not in one big file.
There are obviously dupe tracks
in tapes so everyone could pick up only the interesting ones !

Hi Again, Sorry to say it but doing it track by track isn't an option for me. The time involved is too great. I am a shiftworker and I'd prefer the time to sleep :S Just think of the way I upload as the way you would of bought the item originally, bad tracks and all.
Cheers

Did same thing as before (cut n paste) but worked this time??
Thanks, I could have a lot of fun here!
I am in US and showed this site to co-worker from Queensland and he was cracking up at the bands from Aus.
He figures a lot of the tunes are right up my alley.
Thanks, Monty
