My name is Judy and I have always been a big fan of Crack The Sky. I've searched for over 10 years for any of their music and finally found it. Many kudos to you. Their music was awesome and I really appreciate being able to find it again...Thank you so much

Dude - you are a rock star in your own right! Thanks for sharing, this is a tough album to find. There are some other live recordings, even one from the same show, but my opinion is that this one was mixed better. Could be my nostalgia speaking, but I definitely prefer listening to this version. Thanks again for sharing!

Brian is the name, and I want to pass along huge thanks for the Live Sky. I had this on wax until someone ripped it off and have been searching for years. Now my Crack The Sky collection is complete.

I love this album in particular, as it holds a lot of great memories. Now i must scour your other posts and see what long lost gems you may have posted!

Thanks again, and rock on!

Brian...thanks for the feedback! Rock on!

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...
