The Day They Ate Brick; The Legendary Radar Sessions
I don't know how many people out there still remember the days when record shops existed and sold records. Finding any particular record was sometimes a hassle. You couldn't just order a record from Europe. You had to go to a special Import Record Store, where they'd happily charge you double what you'd pay for a domestic record. Bootleg records were something so rare and special that they were almost magical. Every once in a while, you's see one for Pink Floyd or The Beatles or Dylan or Led Zeppelin - the big names. But, a bootleg for a smaller player like Robyn Hitchcock... Well, you really needed a special connection to find something like that.
I have been waiting patiently for a long time now for high-quality transfers of Robyn's bootleg vinyl to emerge from the ether. But, it just hasn't happened. So, I've decided to take the plunge. I will be posting a new Robyn Hitchcock bootleg every day or two for a week or thereabouts. Please do grab them. Please share them on your favorite trackers, hubs, cheese shops, and sex clubs.
These are 24/96 resolution transfers. If you want to burn a CD, you'll need to convert to 16/44. I have tried to include decent cover art, which is to say that I know the heartbreak of getting images that are only a few KB. I've gone to some lengths to make sure that you'll get something worth looking at.
Hope you like'em!
