VA 7 77 CBS NOTEBOOK For Students Only

What a joy to hear the raw versions of these old radio songs from my grade school day such as "Time Bomb" from Lake who I have posted before.  Such an odd song that went on and on or even "Hot Summer Night", I seriously haven't heard this since one of those nights from my wee youth and then we have a new rawer version of the Ram Jam song who I posted their LP a month ago.  I was lucky to have parents who liked music!!  And yeah, I had one of these same Notebooks.


YES!!! I finally found the version of 'Leroy Brown' from the radio back in 3rd grade or so growing up in a household/car full of hit songs of the day.

CAFE JACQUES - International LP 78

O.K. when I put up the Anthony Phillips last week with Rupert Hines, a requester reminded me Rupert also played in this band that had Phil Collins has a credit in so I pulled it out early for a rip.


From Cleveland, OH this band had a few hit songs as you will hear.

COURAGE OF LASSIE - The Temptation To Exist LP 86

NAPALM - Tolle EP 80 w It's A Warning 7 82

REPOST Request:  Thanks to Wildevilman for these!  Napalm were a Punkrock-Band from Hamburg.
They existed from 1979 - 1982/83 and the members were Lui (Voice), Martin Witte (Guitar), Frank (Guitar), Arne Wagner (Bass) & Kai Reder (Drums). Ralf Kirstan said NAPALM were the forthcoming 'German Punk & Hardcore Discography' as "one of the best german Punkbands ever!"The abnormally entertaining qualities of the voice from the Singer speaks for itself and were at that time unique in the scene, and theiy handled all instruments in a high standard, especialy in the second Period. A brillant little piece of raw & wild punkrock.More Info can be found here (in german): Napalm
