Finally after all these weeks I fixed my quality problem. It seems the crossfader lever was the wrong way which lowered the signal causing raspy treble and I needlessly compensated with boost which caused booming bass sounds. I do apologize and it's mostly not noticeable except in my new car stereo but I have kept most of the good records so if I get a repost request and I have it I will re-rip. So in the coming weeks, years you are in for a real treat of sound now that it sounds better...just notice this weeks selections and just in time for the mini theme of male solo ending in "y" or "ie"--you know, the ones people get affectionate for with those names so fitting that the problem was fixed. R.I.P. Tommy Bolin here, way before his time.

REPOST Request New Better Rip: Well I decided to go forego the vinyl rip I did of this and re-rip from my old cassette copy that I would listen to endlessly in my room growing up. It was recorded on my buddies stereo which was pretty good quality and tape saves all that--he would play bass to this endlessly. I added their song from the Throbbing Lobster comp. Since I started blogging I have accomplished all of my original goals of finding specific rare punk, etc. releases....all but the first Flies 7 inch with the Tilt-A-Whirl on the cover..anyone have this? I gave up checking at Ebay. Oh here' a good background link forya!
The awesome file with Dylanesque vocal stylings: http://www57.zippyshare.com/v/86332193/file.html
P.S. I figured out it was really my taping with a box recorder off my multi-band radio in fourth grade of Bob Dylan's "Stuck Inside A Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again" and memorizing the lyrics with repeated listenings that really got me into the irreverent punk attitude bandwagon. Then it was the Gary Numan in 1979 on the radio and subsequent rejection of Led Zeppelin collecting to all hardcore after hearing the yodeling punk rock singing of Ian MacKaye. Someone on American Idol should do the exaggerated Dylan vocal styling like Nat Freedberg here...I'm sure they would win if they did it right.

REPOST Request: This one got a lot of listens by me back in the day but I have no idea where the 11 bonus tunes came from included here on another post within as I only remember the 28 from the LP rip.
REPOST Request: From my hometown Minneapolis, MN

Well I couldn't rightly post a shitload of Beat Farmers stuff and not also post their number one opener band for over 200 shows! A nice intro on the 1986 record by the late great Country Dick Montana is a classic piece of writing. I've added a few bonus live tunes and one with Jello Biafra but missing two earlier slabs.
