Eight Prefab Sprout CD Singles

Here I am sharing my collection of Prefab Sprout CD Singles. Eight discs in all containg some unreleased and alternative and extended versions. 28 Tunes altogether.

This is how I discovered Prefab Sprout. I was totally into Thomas Dolby, Aliens Ate My Buick album and was thirsty for more. So I called Weasel at WHFS in Annapolis, MD USA(an extermely knowledgeable DJ) and asked him what else Mr Dolby was involved in. He hung up on me stating, he was running a contest and didn't have time. I was pissed, so when the contest was over, I called back and Weasel barked out something about Thomas Dolby produced some Prefab Sprout albums...WTF? Luckily he was right and I went out and purchased everything I could from Prefab Sprout.

Interesting fan website:

WMA 9.1 96kps; 79MB; 28 tunes

Thanks for that! I just bought the Dolby-remastered version of Steve McQueen - it sounds even better, and the bonus CD of acoustic versions is just stunning.

Thank You So Much!
I too was a Dolby fan, and bought Two Wheels Good because He produced it (Hell, I even bought Foreigner 4 because he was on it!) Ever since then, I have been in thrall to Paddy's work. It sets standards that you can't just emulate, you have to ASPIRE to them, and hope that something you write will be thought of as something approaching their ilk.
This is GREATLY appreciated!

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...
