Kate Bush - Sat In Your Lap: The Singles Collection and More

She's in the trees! She's coming! Here are all of KB's non-LP releases from 1978 - 2016. Singles, 12"ers, Original Soundtrack and what have you. All of them! So if you have her albums, all you need is this set. There's some song duplication here, especially during The Red Shoes.  I split these between two volumes to improve listenability. This is a nice collection completer! These are have all been tagged with original artwork and they are @320.  Some were sourced from needle drops so they may be a bit noisy.

Manfred Mann - The Jack Bruce Sessions

While researching for the Cream "Like a Bearded Rainbow" set, this was put together so I could look at Bruce's short time with MM. At the time they were a (moderately) successful band with a long-ish career and installed Jack Bruce as their musical director/visionary.  The time Jack spent with MM was only a few months and ended when he joined Cream. Here in the States, MM didn't really register much in our consciousnesses, at least on the West Coast, but results of compiling these were so fascinating, I had to share it! All @320, tagged with original art and sequenced in the order originally released. Worth a listen, probably not the Manfred Mann that you'd expect. 

1 Machines (Machines EP) [4-66]
2 She Needs Company [Mono] (Machines EP) [4-66]
3 Tennessee Waltz (Machines EP) [4-66]
4 When Will I Be Loved (Machines EP) [4-66]
5 Pretty Flamingo (Single A-Side) [4-66]
6 You're Standing By (Single B-Side) [4-66]
7 Still I'm Sad (Instrumental Asylum EP) [6-66]
8 My Generation (Instrumental Asylum EP) [6-66]
9 (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction (Instrumental Asylum EP) [6-66]
10 I Got You Babe (Instrumental Asylum EP) [6-66]
11 It's Getting Late (Pretty Flamingo LP) [7-66]
12 Driva Man (Pretty Flamingo LP) [7-66]
13 I Wanna Be Rich (Mono) (Just Like A Woman Single B-Side) [8-66]
14 That's All I Ever Want From You Baby (AsWas EP) [10-66]

Bob - Side Tracks (Deluxe Expanded BF Edition)


Earlier this week, while I was filling in some holes/upgrading my Dylan collection when I just stumbled on this Wikipedia page that listed the songs missing from Side Tracks, the 2CD/3LP set that was issued with 2012's Complete Album Collection's  Missing Songs.  I thought this would be quick and simple, but when dealing with The Bard's discography, it's never that simple.  The first attempt had only the added songs from the Wiki page, and 1978's Renaldo and Clara 12" promo. Looking deeper, that wasn't going to cut it.


This version, though, comes much closer to doing the intended job. So the idea here is to collect ALL of the Bard's commercially released recordings through 2012 that has never made it onto an LP/CD, and put it together in a way that is interesting, instructive, and listenable. Mix variations, single edits, session work, duets on other artist's records, and, most importantly, anything that had to do with the Bootleg series was not part of this project. 

This is part one, now 60 tracks and divided out to four CDs, all tagged with original covers. I haven't given it all a spin yet, but the lineup looks both playable and relatively complete. Virtually all is @320. 

BTW, "**" means this is a track not originally included on Side Tracks. 

One more thing - I'm not anywhere near an expert on Bob. There could be some oversights. Should you notice any (that fit within the parameters above), please let me know!

The Rolling Stones In Mono (BF 2019 Upgrade)

About a year ago, I got FLACs of some mono Exile On Main Street singles and then I know that at some point my original post (from Oct 2015) would have to be revised. I always wondered if this collection inspired ABKCO to finally get off their duffs and finally issue the 'official' version. It's possible. Willard told me it had had 30,000 + DLs. There are also some hints that it might have been the case. I added some songs overlooked by ABKCO in past releases and they were added to their set. Too bad they chose to use their same old UK/US version strategy (Out Of Our Heads, Aftermath, etc). ABKCO's needless duplication meant that about 40 duplicate ABKCO tracks were left over when I was compiling this set. As with my original post, there is no song duplication.

This time I rebuilt it from the ground up and I can confidently say that this is the most complete collection of The Stones' work in mono, packaged nicely and coherently. I took 24/192 FLACS of the ABKCO release and did a fresh conversion to 320. and then I completed the set with the missing tracks (marked ** below). After that, I decided to add the Got Live If You Want It, both EP and LP combined to form a new "LP", volume 8 which turned out pretty well. Now, along with the Exile mono single mixes, it's really complete.

Here are my original notes from 2015:

This has been something that I've wanted to see for a long time! I finally got tired of waiting and made it myself! The complete London/Decca studio recordings presented the way they were meant to be heard! I was one of the many searching for any stereo version of an RS song - I think in part because they were so hard to find and also we all spent many years listening to the earlier records in re-channeled stereo. The truth is that I believe these were made to be played in mono. Do you remember how great it sounded on the radio or in a club?

So here are some notes on why it's compiled the way it is - we all know that London/Decca had little rhyme or reason for why they selected tracks and sequenced the RS early LPs. It does seem that looking back on the 2 greatest hits collections, High Tide and Through The Past Darkly, they are great albums. The obvious thing to do would be to put together a "Past Masters" type collection (which ABKCO did and called it "Stray Cats") or add bonus tracks to each album, but that's not very Rolling Stones-ish to me. I like the idea of having every mono RS LP. In my opinion, these all stand alone as fine LPs, even the collections (like "Around and Around", "Flowers" and here, "Stone Age") are not just simply a collection of songs. I hope you agree. So this is a collection of stand-alone albums, each designed to be enjoyed separately, without song duplication.

Hence, this set has had a few extra albums created. The second LP is a recreation of "Around And Around", that great German collection. My version completes all of their 1963-64 tracks that weren't on albums or greatest hits collections. This sews up those years perfectly. "High Tide and Green Grass" pretty closely follows the UK version, with a few changes.

Maybe the strangest one here is "Stone Age". This collects all of the B-sides, USA and other leftover tracks from 1965-66. I know "Sittin' On A Fence" and the other USA Flowers tracks came out in 1967, but I'm pretty sure they pre-date Aftermath. Anyhow, they fit just fine here! For this compilation, I stayed pretty close to chronological sequence.

"Through The Past, Darkly" uses only the mono single mixes and follows closely to the UK version, only removing duplicates and adding in more 67-70 unique single mixes/edits. "CS Blues" is added to the end of this only because it really didn't fit anywhere else.

Because you can sure that ABKCO would be charging a pretty penny for this set, it's only right that they throw in some bonus 45s, right? The first is their never-released 2nd single finally seeing an official release! Also, that Bill Wyman/Stones single (which is barely different from the mono TSMR version) sits here best, and not on TtP,D. Trust me, I tried it! Finally, the really hard to find (for me, anyway) Original mono mix of the "Brown Sugar" single.

The Beatles "2" (Blank Frank Edition)


From 2012: One of these years, I think the surviving Beatles will get around to putting out their own version. Until that time comes here is my version of the "2" album. My criteria was that it had to fit on one CD and it must include the "B" sides of the "1" album and other singles that never made onto "1", using only UK and USA chart info, just like "1" did. Also, there can be no duplication from the "1" LP.

I did not include the Capitol Green Swirl 45s, such as "Boys" or "Kansas City" and to make it fit onto one CD, I had to leave out some of the US 45s from A Hard Days Night - I think those were released only because United Artists had the rights to the soundtrack album in the USA. These are @320 and tagged with original artwork.

So here goes, it uses only 2009 remastered versions. Notes on why I have included some songs are noted below. Thanks to A-1 for providing the inspiration for this post!

1 P.S. I Love You
2 Please Please Me (Ha! I think the only track that actually was #2!)
3 Ask Me Why
4 Thank You Girl
5 I'll Get You
6 This Boy
7 I Saw Her Standing There (USA "B" side)
8 You Can't Do That
9 Things We Said Today
10 I Should Have Known Better (USA "B" side)
11 She's A Woman
12 I Don't Want To Spoil The Party (USA "B" side)
13 Yes It Is
14 I'm Down
15 Act Naturally  (USA "A" side)
16 Nowhere Man (USA "A" side)
17 What Goes On (USA "B" side)
19 Rain
19 Strawberry Fields Forever
20 Baby, You're A Rich Man
21 I Am The Walrus
22 The Inner Light
23 Revolution
24 Don't Let Me Down
25 Old Brown Shoe
26 You Know My Name (Look Up The Number)
27 For You Blue  (USA "B" side)
