Tommy Keene: Places That Are Gone- Vinyl EP

Short but sweet!

Tommy Keene
Places That Are Gone
Dolphin DLP-2003, 1984

Keene's first LP (1981's Strange Alliance) gained a lot of press, but not the radio attention of this 1984 12" EP for Dolphin. In addition to the memorable title song (rerecorded later his first major label LP), Keene crafted four more chiming, hook-filled guitar tunes and a wickedly good cover of Alex Chilton's "Hey! Little Child." Keene continued to produce consistently fine records (from 1986's Songs from the Film through 2006's Crashing the Ether), but as with so many artists, this first spark of youthful exuberance marks a special place in his catalog.

Side 1
Places That Are Gone

Hey! Little Child (Alex Chilton)

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...
