I was pretty stoked to get my turntable out of storage in early September, and since then I've been buying up a good selection of cheap vinyl. I also got a new boondoggle for my laptop so my new rips will be in proper stereo.
I wanted to post this one first because I could not find anything out about this band over the web, and I love a good mystery. Ted Lindsay and the Democrats were from Nashville and recorded on the equally mysterious Ancient Mystic record label. It's a relatively short, but impressively dynamic album. Further information would be very welcome.

Nice of MediaFire to suspend my account without even bothering to let me know about it. This means all of the rare singles I have posted in the last three or four years are not accessible at the moment. Regular visitors will know I try hard to avoid circulating things that have been issued on CD or download and are easy to purchase.
I have some webspace of my own now so I will start migrating files there. If there is a single you are looking for and the link is lost let me know and I will see what I can do.
[Update] I have started posting various singles to my Box account. Hopefully this should be a bit smoother going forward. Follow me on Twitter for details on new links as I add them.
It's been pointed out to me that the rips I have uploaded from my laptop - i.e. everything in the last two years - have not been "true" stereo rips because the laptop microphone input just double tracks one channel into two. So if you are a connoisseur of these things my apologies.
At the moment I don't have a desktop computer and all the singles I have worked on recently are in storage for at least several months so I'm not going to be ripping any of these again for a while. I also have several album rips which I will check but I suspect they will have the same issue.
On a positive note, I have been reunited with my CD collection in the USA so requests for reups for Terry Hoax, This Other Eden, Dubh Chapter and Nicky Holland will shortly be fulfilled.
This blog is mostly dedicated to the music I enjoy. My favorite era is from 1985 to 1988 when I first started buying singles and albums. I grew up in Britain so there is definitely a bias towards English music but I've also lived in the US.
I may also mention more contemporary music and other pop culture that piques my interest.
Thank you to everyone who stops by, I hope you find something you like here!
