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 .... A great place to start with 80's compilation tapes.If you were to play these tapes chronologically (had to check the spelling) by year, you would see how the different styles of popular music progressed through the eighties. One good things the "tapes" had over some vinyl compilation releases is that they had **two bonus tracks**. Although not prone to scratches like vinyl, an even scarier thought was the tapes getting chewed ....aaaaaargh!

Don't know where to start on converting my hundreds of tapes and cassingles .....

During 1990 I did a fair bit of club DJ'ing in both 'straight' and 'gay' nitespots throughout Newcastle and Sydney (under a different DJ name), and the first two tracks on this tape were 'must-plays' for me. Thanks for upping these, as they're both hard to get and essential to any collection of 80's tracks.

Stumbled around the internet finding my old albums... landed here :) I vaguely remember this album - what is the password for the file?

PJ said...

The insert shows 2 bonus tracks but those tracks do not exist in the zip file. Why?

PJ said...

Nevertheless it is a good album. Excellent quality.
