Here's one I forgot to post from a long time ago

I was going through my rapidshare links I noticed this hadn't been downloaded in a long while, so I checked and I had never posted it here (at least I don't think I did).

So here is the first album from Ginger Baker's Airforce.

And also some wonderful folks out there in blogsville are adding my links to their rapidshare link folders (curse rapidshare for coming up with that horrid idea) and passing them around and links are being killed off. It's not that many (7 so far) so if you happen to click a dead link please let me know so I can remove the old link and I will get a new one added. Most of them seem to be fairly deep into the archive so basically unless you are new here, it's not a real big problem and nothing I'm going to fret about.

Just a note to say please see my comment/request posted in response to your July 04 offerings, specifically D. Beaver's 1973 one-shot opus Combinations. Thank you, Time Traveller!

P.S. - In my haste to leave that request, I forgot that I had created a login identity months ago. I really am clickclack53, honest.

Hi CC53,

I wish I could honor your request, but I no longer have the album. The only thing I can think of for you is to go to a warez site and download an MP3 joiner. Most are fairly slow, but you will eventually get the whole medley in a single track. I sold the album to a friend who really loves it and has wanted it for some time.

Thanks, TT. I will explore the avenue that you have suggested. I am certain that your friend must have been genuinely thrilled at finally being able to own a copy of this terrific LP. Meanwhile, it's been entertaining just to look through your other audio offerings. What a trip down memory lane! I well recall seeing most of these covers during the many hours of my life that were spent idly browsing in new & used record stores from the 1970s onward. Sometimes the covers provided more entertainment and creativity than any of the music embedded in the grooves of the enclosed vinyl disc, and in other cases, the dullest covers proved to be hiding marvelous treasures. BTW, you can tell your friend that apparently "D. Beaver" was one David Beaver, who had previously been the keyboardist of The Gentrys. That's all I was ever able to learn about him, and I don't know what became of him after he recorded that one fantastic solo LP. Thanks again for posting so many items from your trove of often obscure and otherwise unavailable recordings. I don't suppose you might have a copy of UNUSUAL, the second solo album by ex-Bonzo Dog Band sax maniac, Roger Ruskin Spear, do you? It has a lot of great tracks on it, including a cover version of Elvis P's old hit, Heartbreak Hotel, as sung by a matter-of-fact BBC news reader. Very funny stuff. Any way, cheers!

Hi Bryon,

The album Blue Epitaph - Distortions has been deleted by rapidshare. Could you please upload it?

Sorry about the delay, (goddamn Megaupload!!!), hope you enjoy it.
