REPOST Request: Thank you to the commenter for pointing out the Ben Bernie track with an old childhood favorite tune of many, The Big Bad Wolf. I am going to seek out this Ben Bernie now (Burt and Ernie from Sesame Street paid homage to him??? perhaps he can tell us in comments). I am honored Sir!

REPOST Request: Thanks again to Camarillo Brillo for buying and ripping at 320 the first album--now that is the kind of gumption I like to see in others. Also check for them on some of the Enigma Records or Scream compilations.

THE BOOMTOWN RATS - st LP 77 w A Tonic For The Troops LP 79 w The Fine Art Of Surfacing LP 79 w 12 EP 82 w V Deep LP 82
REPOST Request: I'm sure you folks who watched MTV back when they had music on it (??) know Bob the singer here. I grew up with a sister who had the 'Surfacing' record I would listen to as I played in her room. Had never heard the first very punky album nor the others like the mature last album that is fine. I think the song 'Dangerous Minds' is where my favorite Facebook group got their name.

Some cool finds at the Good Will so similar I thought I would just group 'em together. Bands featured top to bottom: Tony Bennett, The Brothers Four, Percy Faith And His Orchestra, Robert Goulet, Patti Page, Dave Brubeck, Bobby Vinton, Ray Conniff And The Singers, The Crystals, Leslie Gore, The Cascades, Jan And Dean,The Jaynettes, Jimmy Gilmer, Trini Lopez, The Angels, Lenny Welch, The Chiftons, The Dells, The Foundations, Brooklyn Bridge, B.J. Thomas, The Equals, Percy Sledge, Clarence Carter, Classics IV featuring Dennis Yost and Marmalade.
This old Miami label is really unique, they had one guy Bobby O writing all the songs! Eventually on the last song of Volume Two they struck it gold with the Pet Shop Boys 'Western World' overseas band along with Roni's hit from US in the early days. I learned recently that CD's came out in this year so maybe that was why a dance label like this didn't grow and is not around today if this was not available early on in the hot new format.
Vol. 1 2LP: https://www115.zippyshare.com/v/J0vL2tjp/file.html
Vol. 2 2LP (tape though): https://www115.zippyshare.com/v/NYc71iO5/file.html
Always did like her after a neighbor let me tape the 89 LP above so when I saw the 87 tape--got it!
REPOST and ADD ON: Really love this guy whose house is where Dr. Hook liked to hang out. His voice has the same inflection as the band right below this so thought I would put it here!

Child Molesters - (I'm The) Hillside Strangler w Ace & Duce 7 78 w Wir Lieben Die Jugendlich Mädchen 12 EP 81 w The Legendary Brown Album LP 96
I had a request last week in a comment by Claude asking if I had any better quality rips on this group then he did and to post what I had so here we go. The 7 inch from KBD (Killed By Death) blog is where I first heard of this L.A. band active from 77 to 82 and perhaps the best quality. The lead singer went by the name Ace Farren Ford and sings in the best of 'frat rock tradition like bands the Scotsmen, Men In Black (New Orleans), Drunks With Guns, The Novas (Da Crusher tune) or even the Pork Dukes. My kinda bands for sure! The Brown Album released posthumously is worst quality of the bunch I have at 128 kb/sec MP3 rate. Thanks also to the old 7inchpunk blogspot and of course Felipe's Isksp defunct blogspot from Brazil as he always has all the good stuff!. Please post your links if you have better recordings in the comments and enjoy!! Few members on the break up formed 'The Mystery Band' and not sure if any releases are available, check out links enclosed.
SEARCH ABOVE FOR MORE and ADD ON: Wow, a double CD from 2004 from this band!!?? Must have missed this one on the post or did the original release, check and see! British Rock!!
More submissions from Jungle Jim-- this here being Krautrock which I have chosen not to intentionally collect as it is well covered on blogs already and stemming the tide will save me a little money....just don't fall into the trap to get away from me...Ha Ha! (would rather you support artists still around and he just might be).
