so pleased to have been around when this was …..happy days

Bit of a 1 hit wonder…..But what a wonder

So all the good plans to blog a few things that have happened over the last few days, and things that the oldmanleslie clan are looking forward to ….go right out of the window when I realise, I love the tunes, and whilst they don’t sound as good, And I have it on vinyl some where …..you tube is great for memories and instant access

happy ” dancing like a loon “

So this one makes me sad….

as reported on www.bbc.co.uk/news  I think this  is a wrong choice by the BBC, Charts should be based on sales, where s  the fun in clinically clicking a button for your music, maybe I’m too ” old ” Oldmanleslie.

it was fun buying vinyl, it felt good. it still sounds better and it looks good ( only my opinion)

but here’s the rational argument. For example, one of my old faves. I have this  behind me on a cd, and somewhere on an old vinyl. bought in shops, so I assume I have paid my fees to the artist. And therefore I can listen to it on some service for free.

but if all I pay is to stream the track and listen when I want, I don’t own a copy out right. so if this is the thin end of the wedge, will there one day only be streamed music available ..

rant over , let me know what you though of the old classic

 

So How Many Music formats do you span…

at the time , one of my favourite tracks on the first album that my girlfriend at the time ( Now “mrs Oldmanleslie” for a long time bought me ) ….. It was played to almost breaking in the car at the time , and i think finally the cassette player managed to chew it up , I couldn’t even repair it with a Bic Biro.
It just made me realise, i have a vinyl collection 7,12 inch and albums that sound great , a stack of CD’s and still a few tapes that i can no longer play , Various hard drives of MP3 tracks , and little Micro SD cards in the car ….
And of course like the link at the top , i can tap into non existent music that is streamed…..  But i never had any 8 tracks

So whats the next format do we think

still sounds good, to me any way ” boss drum ”

used to be on of my old fave raves ……..

 

and then it was just 3 clicks away to   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lIUoV7ZP-ag  I wonder if i was always destined to find solice in a drum 

 

B* Witched

hey hey hey , i’ll huff…………….

so is it bad to blog about a tune that pops up that you had forgotten, all i was doing was a shuffle whilst blogging.

” im a wolf today ” love it

happy Sunday

 

Inspiration comes from Many places …

Another tune, Not quite so far back this time, But one I remember thinking was pretty good  ” back in the day ” and now , I’m thinking of trying to get our band to have a go at it .
