Some great files from the Dave Sez archive

Dave Sez has been sending me stuff forever,remember the ultra-great Jam and Au Pairs collections,
as well as many others......well, it's been a little while since I've posted any of his fine stuff, and it is piling up a little bit, through the fault of one person (me)......so today and tomorrow, I'm going to empty out his file, a lot of great if unrelated stuff.......check out below, everything here is EXTREMELY rare and stuff you are going to want!

Let us start with the great Linton  Kwesi Johnson, Live on the BBC 1984....tried to post this before but it was an unsplit FLAC file which was too big for Zippy's liking, so I converted it to MP3 files which should work just fine.....still unsplit, but you'll still love this show, with artwork included.....here is the information:

For a June 2001 review of Lloyd's album "The Cover Doesn't Matter", see http://behindthebeat.com/2001/06/richard-lloyd-the-cover-doesnt-matter/.
Richard Lloyd - Stock Audio (c. 2012, 320)
Stock audio is music that has been created for use as background music for videos, films, television, etc. Lloyd has produced a set of stock music himself, and it’s not just instrumental background rumblings either, as much of this material comes in the form of structured song composition with vocals. As far as I know, none of this material has ever been on any album and seems to have first been made available in 2012, though we have no idea when it was actually recorded.
01 Want You (3:21)
02 Murder Boogie (5:36)
03 We Will Climb (6:34)
04 Diogenes (1:36)
05 Want You To Stay (3:03)
06 Tasting Quicksand (2:01)
07 Pull (4:13)
Many thanks to Willard at http://www.willardswormholes.com/?p=12701 (mediafire link still live).

Thanks, to Dave Sez for his generosity in sharing these, and there will be more to come.....my apologies for dragging my feet for so long, welcome to MY world!


A sad note, I just wanted to say that the guy I spoke about (Stooges post, several months back), my longtime "drifter" friend, on Wedensday night actually tried to jump between the cars of a train which started, he tripped, his leg was cut off, and he was dragged by the train....he lived, but the prognosis is not good, I don't think he'll make it........he lived a kind of a storybook life, and a more "fitting" ending couldn't have been written in Hollywood. Hope he makes it, but it seems VERY unlikely.

One of the saddest things about getting old is watching the people you've known for 30-35 years check out......I'm not the biggest "prayer" guy in the world, but in this case it seems like the best option.
