Eighties Covers Redux!

I took my Eighties covers project from last year, expanded it, shuffled the order, and replaced some weak tracks. I think it's pretty killer. If you downloaded it last year, definitely replace the old version with this one.

I'd like to do a write up on all the songs, but since there's almost 150 of them, for reasons of space I won't. I'll let the tracklist speak for itself.
There's indie bands, folk versions, some country, blues, punk, straightahead pop, a cappela tracks... It's a smorgasbord. 

The sound quality is great throughout. Out of all the songs here, there's maybe 5 YouTube audio rips. I've also revamped the metal covers (Volume 7), and it's just awesome now! Dig in. (And the last song on volume 6 was a typo: it's a choral cover of Toto's "Africa)

A Few Words On Things

Ok, I think a little explaining is in order..

I'm not here to be the boss of anything. I'm not here to highjack Scott's blog. He trusts me with the Blogger pass, so that's good enough for me (and most of you). And also, I was mentioning Willard in passing, not comparing myself to him. And I DID used to have a blog of my own, before Google took it away from me.

I'm here to keep a friend's hobby afloat, not open myself up to abuse. So, as much as I've liked hearing some of your encouragement -Simonthecat, yours has always been appreciated - comments will be disabled on my posts for the foreseeable future. If you like something I've posted, "+1" it.

Got a good one coming. Should be up by morning. Anybody remember my Eighties covers project? I've expanded it and restructured it. Coming at you soon.

New Cover Project!

This is my first new cover project in a long time. This group has had several tribute albums dedicated to them, but for me they've always been kinda lopsided. Using them as a resource, as well as finding tracks from bands' albums and EPs, I think I put together a pretty kickass set.

I'm avoiding using the band name, but it should be obvious to you. There's punk bands in here, some metal acts, even some acoustic songs.

Holy Shit! An update!

Hey, everybody. Brian here. Been awhile, huh?  Don't know how many remember me. I've been quiet blogging-wise the last 12 months or so. Just couldn't think up any interesting compilations, and frankly, given the pace of the posts here at GB, I didn't want cool links of mine just buried. 

Along those lines, contributors - if you're still around - thanks for everything, but we won't be taking any till Scott comes back. There were too many, in my opinion, and it just drowned this blog. [Enough stoner metal. Seriously] It's why I haven't checked back here in months, and when I did, I find Scott hasn't posted all summer. To my understanding, he's without a computer right now, so I'll steward things here for a little while.

A little over a year ago, I did some work cleaning up this blog, and I don't wanna see it die just yet. Also, different things have affected the blogosphere this year - wiping a lot of its users, and the retiring of Willard. I don't know how many of you frequented the Wormholes blog, but it really was the ultimate place to go to find stuff! I found a home in his Reader's Links for many months, and was happy with the exposure. There were some cool things I found only there, and I wanna showcase some of them here when I have time. But it'll never be on his scale.

You want content? You want cool stuff you can't find anywhere else? Then bear with us. We're gonna get something together....
