The Del Lords Frontier Days Vinyl Rip

Another 'HFS staple from the early 80' is a vinyl L.P. from my record collection that was ripped a couple of years ago to my hard drive.

Between 1984 and 1990, the Del-Lords released four studio albums plus a mini live album. Most of their output has been made available on CD except the first two LP's which have never been reissued on CD, even though some songs can be found on Get Tough (the CD Best Of). With guitarist Scott Kempner (once Top Ten of the Dictators) penning the material but occasionally relinquishing lead vocals to guitarist Eric "Roscoe" Ambel, the Del-Lords embraced rock's basic components with such skill and verve that they outshone most everyone else on the scene. (Trouser Press).

"How Can A Poor Man Stand Such Times and Live" was a major Weasel song from 1984. I think this song was the most played song from 84/85timeframe.
Do you recall the other ones that HFS played from the Del Lords?
Thanks for the cool rip!

Here's a fun little story about how you're my hero. I'm 22 now, but this story must have happened when I was about 12.

My dad had a vinyl of Frontier Days, and one day he played it for me. I liked it, so I kept getting it out and listening to it. I got up for a minute, and my dog walked by and hit the record player with his tail, leaving a huge scar across the entire record. My dad was a little bent out of shape over it, since there was no way he was going to get a replacement.

Ten years later, his birthday is coming up, and thanks to you, I have the perfect present for him.

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...
