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 Cold Chisel "knocking on Heavens Door". I am pretty sure this was from a live album that was a tribute or charity concert with a massive line up. Do you happen to know what that concert was - I had a tape 25 years ago, but I can't remeber what it was now. Any clue?

This is hilarious. The cover looks ashtough it should be metal and then it has Phil Collins and The Pointer Sisters on it. Love!
