Who took the booze?

Here’s the second of the posts I scheduled for publication before I had to dash north to Scotland. The third one will appear on Christmas Day, so watch out for that…

Who took the booze

What, another mix of tunes from the murky depths of December? Well, what else is gonna keep ya warm at night, right? Or during the day, come to that.

I really like this one. I mean, I know I would say that, but honestly, what’s not to love? Some old gems from the likes of Dion, David Essex, Bitter Springs, Honeycombs and Eggs, plus some new sparklers from Wave Pictures, Pink Films, Paperfangs and Sea Lions amongst others. And what about The Tyde covering Primal Scream? Man, I spoil you, I really do spoil you.

And just to spoil you some more, here’s the one day only, never to be repeated (except maybe one more time) offer of the whole shebang wrapped up in one of them zipper files. Huh? You missed it?! That’s a crying shame…
