John Adams - Strip This Heart

7" single, released in 1987

More from John Adams, lead singer with UK band Private Lives. The single was taken from his first solo album, Strong, but the B-Side was exclusive to this release in the UK.

Dansette - This Summer (Gotta Get Up)

7" single, released in 1985

The band changed their name to Heyday and released one more (excellent) single in 1986.

Colour Code - Dance With The Times

7" Single, released in 1984


It took a while, but I have updated links for Private Lives, Clark Datchler, The Recognitions, Sherri Kean and The Producers.

More rare and obscure rips coming soon!

The Big Picture - Cold Emotion

7" Single, released in 1986

By request. I just got this single recently and didn't realize at the time it was by the band East of Java under a different name. The B-Side is a great Bob Dylan cover.

Random 80's Wednesday

More 99 cent acquisitions on random play this week.

Social Security - Irrawaddy River (from Waterfalling, 1986)
Ups And Downs - The Living Kind (from Sleepless, 1986)
Heroes - Driftaway (from Here We Are, 1987)
The Metropolitans - Catch A New Wave (from Storybook, 1986)
The Fabulous Pop Tarts - New York City Beat (12" Single, 1986)

Full disclosure - The Metropolitans album only cost me 25 cents. These are all the opening tracks apart from Ups & Downs as the first track was a shorter introductory piece.

Heroes is a band fronted by former Wang Chung drummer Darren Costin.

Random 80's Wednesday

This week I am going to post the opening track from some 99 cent albums I got from The Great Escape in Nashville.

Ian Cussick - The Supernatural (from Danger In The Air, 1983)
The Lost Tropics - Zoo Story (from The Lost Tropics, 1983)
Favorite Nation - Sometimes A Silence (from Favorite Nation, 1988)
The Way Moves - Shadows Of Love (from The Way Moves, 1988)
The City - Season Of The Heart (from Foundation, 1986)

After I ripped the Danger In The Air album, I found that the artist has made the album available on CDBaby, where you can preview the whole album. I've linked to it so you can support the artist.
