1981 Posting

Postby ukcharts » Sat Feb 27, 2010 5:10 am

For those of you who waited well over a year for 1980, it must seem a bit like Christmas at the moment, so I'm going to try and carry on the momentum.

Sorting through 1981 I'm up to track 300 so far with the following missing;

u81_189 UB40 - Don't Let It Pass You By - Single Version
u81_216 Thin Lizzy - Killers Live (EP) (3 tracks)
u81_250 Children Of Tansley School - My Mum Is One In A Million Now received
u81_251 Coast To Coast - Let's Jump The Broomstick Now received
u81_274 Gillan - Mutually Assured Destruction Now received

I'll complete the missing list and post a variances report soon. In the meanwhile, if anyone has any of the above ...

Cheers.

I've got one of the tracks from the Marc Bolan EP

03 - The Lilac Hand Of Menthol Dan

It's only 128 again but is it any help?

Just uploaded the UB40 track to the server.

Only 128K again (sorry) but it's the only copy I could locate.

Source - vinyl rip, a friends not mine but guaranteed as genuine.

Just uploaded the Electric Warrior EP to the server - the three tracks are zipped into Marc Bolan - Electric Warrior.Zip.

Only 128K again but again a vinyl rip.

Thanks Tel,

After further trawling around, here's those that are still missing from the 1981 list;

u81_360a - Video Symphonic - The Flame Trees Of Thika
u81_375a - The Tweets - Let's All Sing Like The Birdies Sing
u81_451a - The Look - Feeding Time
u81_462a - Barron Knights - Blackboard Jumble
u81_490a - Mike Berry - Memories
u81_519a - Trini Lopez - Trini Trax

I'm now loading the rest onto my pod ready for a weeks worth of poptastic 1981 nostalgia and weeding out poor copies, and I'll have a stab at marking which versions need replacing by next weekend.

I can supply one from the list, and keep my credibility intact to boot lol. u81_451a - The Look - Feeding Time uploaded to Usenet. It's a 192k/s rip from an old powerpop boot which appears to be a singles comp so I assume it's the 7" version. Not my rip, credit to the original ripper.

Thanks again to all those pitching in.

[Updated 09 March 23.50]
[Updated 12 March 00.30] 75 to go
[Updated 17 March 03.00] 72 to go
[Updated 17 March 22.45 59 to go

Still missing; None. At least one version of all tracks now available. Thanks to all.

Here's the first prune list. The first column is the believed single version duration, the second the version currently in my collection; It could be either time that needs correcting, and I probably have 25% on vinyl to rip and check myself yet ... so at this time if you could confirm any corrections and keep any rips to one side that would be appreciated.
