Please leave me a comment if you download...

...because it's nice to feel appreciated ;-)

Today, a few odds & sods that I like. A bit of a mixed bag! Download them individually, or get the whole lot here

Biljo - Clodagh Rogers

I just think this is a great pop song, one of the lost classics from the late 60s.

Jealousy - The Boothill Foot Tappers

Along with the Pogues and The Men They Couldn't Hang, one of the best of the punk folk/skiffle bands of the mid-80s. I worked with them a lot at the Robey.

Bye Bye Baby - The Bay City Rollers

Yes, really! It's wonderful, just like 'pop' music should be.

Star Trekkin' - The Firm

One of the few comedy records that stands repeated listening to.

Arfur Daley - The Firm

Same again.

Heart Of Mine - Hi-Fi

Ian Matthews teamed up with David Surkamp of Pavlov's Dog and made an ep and an lp. This is the only decent track on either of them - but it *is* a cracker.

The Gaol Song - Peter's Private Army

I know absolutely nothing about this single. It's fantastic though, mid-80s folk-rock of the highest caliber. Does anyone know anything about it?

Romeo - Mr Big

Another great pop song. Nuff said.

Gerdundula - Status Quo

This is the best of many versions IMO, from the b-side of an old single (can't remember which one)

You can purchase the complete works of Hi-Fi from David Surkamp's own website

The version he is selling contains the album and the EP (or is it two eps?? can't remember) along with copies of the first four Pavlov's Dog albums.
