Pete Best Beatles - Sounds For The Sophisticated Cabaret Music Lover EP

Here also is their EP from 1985. How good is that - a twofer. Both of their releases for the completists and OCD freaks (like me).

Pete Best Beatles - Stench of Wealth

I've been after this 1984 Aussie gem for quite some time. With ZERO luck. Can't see it on Discogs. Ebay. Not even for sale at exorbitant silly $$$ on some random website. What the heck. If you can help out, please make contact using the comments section or email.

I really consider myself to be very lucky. Someone spotted this initial post then offered the mp3 files. So, here they are! Finally. a holy grail bites the dust. Thanks Dave.

Loxene Golden Disc 1972

New Zealand compilation from 1972. Always seem to enjoy this, especially to hear Steve Allen's verion of the David Bowie song 'Life On Mars'. Worth getting just for that. Then there's a track by Blerta, Headband etc.

FIMO (Friends In Mutual Orgasm) - Self Titled

Great band name. And then there's the seahorse. Mutual Orgasm indeed (Dad carries the eggs, Mum does a runner). Released on the Way Over There label in 1997 (WOT025). One and only release.

Sore Throat - Sooner than You Think

This is one of those finds from the el cheapo bin. It sneaks up on you then you're hooked. Great album. New Wave Pop-Punk band from the UK. Released in 1979. Bunch of extra tracks from their singles also included. It's a fairly complete collection well worth your time.

Beyond The Southern Cross

Aussie artists compilation from 1984. The Triffids, Whirliwind, Tactics, The Clean, Severed Heads, Other Voices etc. A lot to like. You've probably heard of it - but never been able to find.

Martha's Vineyard - For A Small World

Mini LP from 1986. I finally got a copy. Found it reasonably priced at the Gold Coast in 2021 - the day before one of those endless lockdowns. Great find.
