I'd just like to say thank you for everyone who uses this blog, the stats (assuming they are accurate) say every month it is getting more and more visits, and the download count is going up, up, up! Every new album I post seems to be getting plenty of downloads from day one, and the figures for some of the older ones, which have been up here for years, is actually quite staggering! I enjoy doing this, but it's only really worth doing if I know people are making use of it, which apparently they are, and the comments I get really mean a lot.

I know for the past few months my posting has slowed down to just a couple of albums a week... That's because my life is getting busier, not because I am running out of albums to share. There is plenty more music on the way!

So thanks to everyone that uses this blog, let me know about it, it encourages me to keep going.

Also, I have been busy recently recording an album of my own music, which I will be offering to you all on this blog the usual way within the next week hopefully. Here's a little preview for you.

Thank YOU, Sir Stuck!! You've brought back some great music and, for me, lots of "Oh, wow" memory moments. Your range is amazing, and your reviews are spot-on.

Your efforts are really appreciated.
Move at your own pace, don't ever feel pressured to keep up the posts when you don't feel like it.

You have provided a chance to listen to a lot of music that is not available anywhere else.

Thank you,
Tony

Like to say thank you to you for all the interesting music you make available for us. Like yourself I have a fondness for all the great music that came out of the 1960s-1970s, and you put the best of it on your blog. Thanks again...

It doesn't matter about how frequently you post, it just matters what you definitely choose. And that's Ok with me. Thank you.

Wow! Just listened to your Track Mr Stuck In tHe Past...and I love it! Your voice is very nice, genuine and mellow, The guitar is understated in a good way, and the quuiet roll of the 1960ish organ is just slighly under the waves Really like the track Coming Home. Now to gush about your blog....It's my favorite site on the web after google..Ha Ha. I look at it daily. I've read back every single one of your posts. I end up digging further into many artists and groups just to trace the heraitage that got them to where they were. Your music blog is awesome and should be enjoyed by more, if they will find it. SC

You should compile a top 10 list or 50 or 100 maybe because there's so many.

The thanks goes to you for doing a wonderful job of providing some great although somewhat obscure music that is not found elsewhere. I especially love the Fame studios material which I never really knew about. Thanks again and keep up the good work.

Wonderful to hear so many of the tunes you provide! So much of my collection has been lost, stolen or is otherwise unavailable at the moment and this is one way i can re-live those heady good times until better times come along for me and my own collection.

I enjoyed your Coming Home track - very professional.

Thanks for your wonderful posts, they've really given me a greater depth of knowledge and enjoyment of artists & styles that I thought I already knew a lot about.
And just because the this digital world keeps moving faster & faster, doesn't mean you have to post that way. Like Robert Hunter says "All good things in all good time."
Many thanks,

Coming Home sounds really well!

good luck with your own music,a lot of blogs are very classic rock oriented. i enjoy visiting your blog with its great mix including soul which is pretty difficult to find these days.

courtney said...

Having absorbed all the influences from these great albums you've posted, you're sure to create music of your own that'll be equally transcendent. Good luck, and thanks for all the music !

Thanks for all your work on this blog!

I've really enjoyed learning about more of the "mid-level" soul singers of the 60s and early 70s.

Happy Christmas, too!

It all started out listening to Motown & Soul, then I moved on to Rock, Disco, Hi-NRG, Italo Disco, Northern Soul, Southern Soul, Western Swing, Country, Doo Wop, Big Bands & Electro-Swing. So much talent, hidden by time and the paucity of outlets.

Thanks to the talent, dedication & knowledge of the music blog Masters it's back for us to re-enjoy.

Signed,

All of us
