NO LINKS FOR DOWNLOADS HERE - JUST PICTURES, THE BLOG IS CLOSED, 16 Nov 2010
UPDATE FEB 2011
DEAR FRIENDS, AFTER RECEIVING FIVE NOTIFICATIONS FROM DMCA, I HAVE DECIDED TO CLOSE MY BLOGS, SO ALL THIS SHARING-LINK ACTIVITY IS FINISHED. YOU CAN READ THE COMPLETE TEXT I POSTED ON MY PILOT BLOG - - > HERE
FOR THE MANY MANY PEOPLE WHO KEEP ASKING FOR RECORDS: I'M SORRY, I CAN'T FULFIL THEIR REQUESTS, IT ALL CAME TO A POINT THAT'S 'S TOO DANGEROUS FOR ME. I HAD TO REMOVE THE 97% OF THE ALBUMS I HAD POSTED ON THE SERVERS. The few exceptions are: the bootlegs and the few studio albums authorized directly by the copyright owners.
FOR ALL THE OTHERS, Cyrus (who wants to buy some of my vynil records), Maxoom, Caroalt, Jiro, Trolley Dolly, Phil (who wants my copies of the COB albums), Marnie (who wants my copy of the original "Ptooff"), XJ64, Antiamnbient, Arman, Nicolas, Rick, etc etc , please WRITE ME AGAIN WITH YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS, AND I WILL ANSWER YOU, OKAY?
Last: I RE-UPPED THE FOREST'S LIVE ALBUM FOR THREE PEOPLE WHO ASKED FOR IT, SO IF ANYONE'S INTERESTED, HERE'S YOUR CHANCE.
No pretention of completeness in mind, this blog sees the light with the idea of filling a good number of gaps here and there, where I notice that certain music that I particularly like is missing in other blogs. Therefore my intent is avoiding posting albums that are present elsewhere. Exceptions are: where I'm reported of dirty record scans, incomplete reissues often remixed and unfaithful to the originals, or when I can offer higher bitrate scans, or also when posting a title is necessary for the completeness of a thread or a discography.
Here you won't find links leading to downloads, whenever the "Link" is featured, the album is available, otherwise, it means "work in progress".... If you want an album, please write me a request in the comment section including your email address and where in the world you visit this blog from.
...and if you don't get an answer from me after a certain time, please write again - I'm sorry, but it's not rare that some emails get lost in outer space, unfortunately...
After seeing that certain people keep using some of my pictures (which are not first class, I admit it, but nevertheless were made originally by me) for their blogs, without mentioning me as the owner, I decided to apply a "watermark" on some of them.

******************** For collectors:
MARC BOLAN - Sunken rags - I couldn't find this acoustic version on any of the expanded editions of the re-issued T. Rex LPs. An "electric" version with T.Rex appeared the same year on the EP "Children of the revolution", with... "fluorescent" contributions by Flo & Eddie.
above: the EP "Children of the revolution" / "Jitter bug love" / "Sunken rags", EMI 1972
If you compare the EP with the worldwide success single "Telegram Sam", EMI 1972, you can see that the covers are exactly the same, probably in order to get advantage of the band's big popularity.
BRINSLEY SCHWARZ - Love song - same version as on the LP "Despite it all"
DAVID BOWIE - The supermen - not the version on the LP "The man who sold the world" EDGAR BROUGHTON BAND - Out demons out - not the version on LP "A bunch of 45's" HAWKWIND - Silver machine - it's the studio version appeared on single, but with a different vocal track overdubbed.
SKIN ALLEY - Sun music - same version as on the LP "Two quid deal" PETER TOWNSHEND - Classified - appeared years later on a single "Let my love open the door"/"Classified" (Atco, 1980) and on some bootleg, prior to be officially reissued on "The genius of PT", in the '90s.
Curtsey to Ava Gardner, a real Countess :-)
I get happily lost in gothic enterprises, not least masquerades and light witchcraft rituals. The Castle is the perfect space for this and for playing great music day and night. I love to collect vinyl records (from folk to acid, psyk, prog, pop rock, jazz, etc.) and, place number two, BOOTS, Stivali, Stiefeln.....!
Whoever feels to be as bizarre as I am , please follow me.. we're definitely ensured to get LOST together...! LOL
Don't "twist" your eyebrows for the title I use for myself ... originally, till a few generations ago, my family was really still of noble descendance... Hence the "Countess" :-))
One big KISS,
your gothic Dame Vanessa **
