  1. Looks like in your excitement you forgot to upload it.

  2. No link? In other news, this blog is one of my all time favorite...

  3. Is there any way to write other than comment? Anyway, good stuff man, thanks for the discerning taste.

    Also, judging from your picks, you may like this slept-on nighty-smoothy type album: (the first song has a long intro, let it ride...)

    1. Thanks for the recc, dude! I put my email at the top of the page just now, but I'll put it here too:

  4. you could base an entire vaporwave band on this album alone. nice. goes great with the Ramleh

  5. I just came upon this. My uncle and cousin were both in the band Flight. Ted Karczewski, guitar and Jim Yaeger on Keyboards. Jim passed away today after a battle with cancer. He was a great man and a multi talented musician that went on after three albums with Flight to write many movie scores and has played with Cyndi Lauper,Ozzy Osbourne,Bill Ward,Ric Astley, Billy Squire,Silver Convention,The Tramps,The Drifters,Bobby Lewis, Defunkt,Stu Hamm, Matt Sorum,Rod Morgenstein,Vinnie Appice,Jeff Berlin,Mike Vernon. and others. He will be missed on this earth! You should listen to the first album.
