CATERWAUL - The Nature Of Things, 1987 [Needle Drop]

I put in a request a few weeks ago for this album at Willard's. No one it seems has it to share, so I purchased it and ripped it today.
 Seems to be fairly obscure. Think of Romeo Void meets The Cult. That's my take anyway. Betsy Martin on vocals seems to have quite the following on the web. Fine, so called 'Alternative Rock' from the 80's. 

A1 A Flower And A Stone     4:04
A2 Yonder, A Honey Sky     3:01
A3 Moth To Rust     3:46
A4 Cinnamon Color Of My Heart     3:24
A5 Tickled Whale     3:22
B1 Way Beyond     4:35
B2 Hence The Hangover     4:07
B3 Butter And Eggs     3:45
B4 Maeven     4:57
B5 Diminutive Do Se Do     3:16

    Bass – Fred Cross
    Drums – Kevin Pinnt
    Engineer – Joe Carrao
    Guitar, Mandolin – Mark Schafer
    Producer – Caterwaul

    Vocals, Mandolin – Betsy Martin

 3 more vinyl rips can be found at downunderground's blog. Highly recommended. Enjoy!

Super Contributer Jim Gives us a Christmas Present!

This has been fun but here is my last tape from the ‘HFS-102.3 days.  I know versions of this have been posted before.  In fact, I’d be interested if you would repost your last 3 hours tape.  To give it a bit of a twist, I’m including some of the newspaper clippings showing the announced sale of 102.3 to the Outlet Company and the speculation that HFS would re-surface on AM 1390.  Thankfully, that didn’t happen and the long run on 99.1 did happen, although for most of the fans of the old 102.3, the 99.1 years were a slow fade to irrelevance.
Last Hours of 102.3
Here is my last tape of WHFS-102.3 FM Bethesda, MD.  Fittingly it is the last 90 minutes or so of the final sign off on July 14, 1983.  The announcement of WHFS’ sale to the Outlet Company (as shown in The Washington Post story from December 31, 1982), got hundreds of tape recorders busy in the 6 ½ months to follow.  There were many references to ‘The Other Side’ which was intended to be 1390AM.  Interestingly that stirred resistance from another generation, as 1390 was playing a Big Band format at the time.  As we know, that move never happened and the other side ended up being a move across the river to Annapolis and 99.1 FM.
Milo spinning tunes on 102.3 for the last time
Followed by the group sign off and the first verse of the Velvet Underground’s ‘After Hours’ … and the tape fades out…

Jim shared another 'HFS tape with DJ Jim Dunbar

Saturday Morning, May 14, 1983 – Jim Dunbar
Kind of a strange mix here.  An early Saturday morning --too early it seems-- set from Jim Dunbar which features: Siouxsee and the Banshees (Switch), The Minutemen (East Wind- Faith), MX80 Sound (More Than Good), Depeche Mode (an alternate mix of Get the Balance Right), Simple Minds (Premonition), Roxy Music (Just Another High), Dream Syndicate (That’s What You Always Say)…and just after Jim introduces the ‘News Blimp Goes to Hell’… the tape switches to something slightly noisy (was this taped off an AM station?), unintelligible at first…, until you realize it’s about 10 minutes of an episode of the National Lampoon Radio Hour which features a parody of AM Talk Radio in the 70’s among other things.  No commercials, but around the 37 minute mark you get a sampling up and down the DC rock/pop radio dial. Then back to the National Lampoon which starts fading out at the end of the tape.

Many thanks once again Jim!

What This Is All About

I've been collecting live music from various sources since the mid to late 70's. Radio shows, TV broadcasts, radio show pre-FM CD's and vinyl LP's and some trades. Most of the shows posted here, I recorded and ripped myself. I always had top of the line stereo equipment and cassette and open reel recorders for those on air broadcasts.

I've downloaded plenty of bootlegged concerts from various blogs. As a rule I will only post stuff from my collection and not what is already available out there.

I also post out of print CDs and LPs from my collection.
I will repost from my readers anything someone sends me as long as it is either out of print or something that's not from someone else's blog. If you want to share a link for a cool item on your blog, or someone else's, please feel free to post it in the comments........

Enjoy and please leave a comment and pass this blog along.

Can you believe that so many out there are starving for the old WHFS? Amazing!

If you leave a comment, how about using a nickname instead of Anonymous. At least make up something please. Thanks!

I have reconsidered my position...and will re-upload dead links, so long as you go to that particular post and make the request from the comments page...
