My New Listening Pleasure "Let Em Riot"

Have to put my hands up and say until the other day i've never heard of Let Em Riot but saw one of there videos posted on a forum and thought may as well have a listen and mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm i like :)

Not sure if you would call there music retro ie having that 80's / 90's synthesizer sound as they have add a little extra something to the sound to give it a more modern sound and feel which my ears really enjoy

Couple of my fav tunes Let Em Riot - Don't Stop Running and Let Em Riot - Say Whay You Need To Say



Would love to see there music available on Vinyl but don't think it would be something which will ever happen as it would make me and my Rega very happy so your have to be happy with CD and iTunes downloads

Liberal Democrats Are Using One Of My Photos

Liberal Democrats are using one of my photos on there web site and they didn't even give me a back link "now that's being a bit to Liberal"

It's very rare but have been asked a few times if a photo could be used which i don't mind as my photos aren't the best just from a point and shoot and if it's for personal use or if it's used on a personal blog and they give me a link i'm ok with it

But today by luck was just doing an image search and saw one of my photos which was being hosted on a different site so went to look and its the local Liberal Democrats so i'm a bit peeeeeeed off as can't stand any of the UK political party's and then i find out they have used the photo for the last two years i'm not happy

Desiree Heslop aka Princess The Album




Picked up Desiree Heslop aka Princess album off Discogs the other day after having most of her tunes on my YouTube playlist




















I know it's a Stock Aitken Waterman production so it has that sound all of there records had in the day but Princess vocals take the songs to another level which most singers of then and even now will never match

Album is full of great tunes from the hits "Say I'm Your Number One" "After the Love Has Gone" "I'll Keep On Loving You" plus many more

Side One
In The Heat Of A Passionate Moment
I'll Keep On Loving You
After The Love Has Gone
Say I'm Your Number One

Side Two
If It Makes You Feel Good
Tell Me Tomorrow
Any Time's The Right Time
Just A Tease

Just a shame she didn't have more hit's but the ones she did will be forever spinning on my turntable

Ps one of my fav album covers as its a stunning photo

Smokin' Beats Compilation Album



Not played my Smokin' Beats vinyl album for years which i've had from new, not sure when this record was released as can't find info on cover or record but i picked up in the 80's sometime from Cloaks in Croydon

Worth picking up as it has may classic tracks from the likes of "Davy DMX"  "Master OC & Crazy Eddie" plus many more which are all great scratch mixes

Record Label: Tuff City Record Group

Side A
Davy DMX "Davey's Midnight Ride"
Charley Chase "We're Gonna Need A Little Scratch"
A.J. Scratch "Get-Get-Get It Now"
Spoonie G "Streat Beats"

Side B
Master OC & Crazy Eddie "Masters Of The Scratch"
Marly Marl "The Man Marly Marl"
DJ Quick "Scratch Attack 2"
Phantom Rock "Be Bop Beats"

If you look at rear photo of album cover it looks like there a 5 tracks on side B which must be a print error due to it being in red for "Masters Of The Scratch" which should be Master OC & Crazy Eddie "Masters Of The Scratch"

PS Long Live Vinyl :)
