IGGY POP - FIRE GIRL

 Hello and Welcome Back.. Loving this Track right Now

Such a amazing gem of a song that sits in position 4 on Iggy Pop's 1986 album 'Blah Blah Blah', that song being 'Fire Girl'

If fact, the whole album is  a treasure trove of various lush sounding songs mostly because David Bowie was responsible for most of the production & song writing which includes the smash hit 'Real Wild Child' which can be heard on Raaage (Australian Music Video Show)


All up, this album spawned 5 Singles including 'Cry For Love', 'Real Wild Child', 'Shades', 'Fire Girl' & 'Isolation'.. Not bad for a David Bowie err Iggy Pop album

TAKE A LISTEN

AN EXPLANATION

 Hello and Welcome Back.. An Explanation 

Had heaps of messages and emails yesterday about a take down notice i received by Australian Synth Pop band 'Pseudo Echo', mostly about why they decided to single me out with threats of legal action & also the legality of showcasing music / albums on this site.

I'll start with why they decided to come after me.

Background - I'm a medically retired pensioner that (thanks to a bad car smash), decided, rather than sit on my ass and play Playstation all day, decided to do something with myself in my spare time and being a huge fan of music, (helps block out the pain), i decided to, not only start this site 'Electronic80s' but also hone my skills as music remastering by finding old albums and breathing new life into them by adding lost 12inch singles and other remixes to the mix

I had noticed that apart from the original 1986 CD release of Pseudo Echo - Love an Adventure, this album was screaming for a remaster. So i dug through my library, spend over a week, re-recording the album and various remixes into a 24bit master, gently caressing the sounds so they sound lush and putting it all together.

So happy was i with what i had to offer, i stupidly sent a copy to the lead singer 'Brian Canham' who i followed on Facebook as i though he would care about a fan taking the time to create a masterpiece (well, that's what i thought) asking him 'What do you Think?, This would be a excellent album idea with all the various 12inch singles added and remastered to better than CD quality' I even offered for them to have the 24bit master i had made if they were interested..

A few weeks passed and nothing. I sent a follow up saying, 'Did you have a listen, what did you think?'

Still nothing, until yesterday...

There was no...'I loved the idea, we will look into it, btw i noticed you have some album links on your site, would you mind taking them down so if / when we do remasters of our albums, they don't clash'... Mind you, these albums are now 35 years old

Sadly No.. Legal action threats is what i got...(see below)

 

And that folks, is how they treat their fans..With legal action

(I have a bet with friends that, they will release a remastered version of this album and they didn't want me or another version of the album floating around so the can make their money...Time will tell)

Moving On..

To the Legality of this site..There is a disclaimer on the left of this site that states that NO music is stored on this site, Never has Been, Never Will...

What is on this site, is my work, my thoughts and links to MY music library that i have paid thousands of $$ for various Vinyl, CDs or Tapes (about 7 are Pseudo Echo CDs) pfft... 

The whole idea about this site is remembering music that i grew up with, holds special memories with, special places in time when a certain song came out and have long been forgotten... 

Its not until sites like Electonic80s showcase these songs & albums that many music lovers start remembering a time in their life when they go  'oh shit, i forgot about that song, my dad used to play that song in the car, sadly my dad has passed away but if i listen to this song, i remember when he was in my life"*... they then go on to listen to the album and maybe even download the album where they find other songs they didn't even know that this particular band also played that song...

So it then sets the trend in motion to find the best copy possible of that album only to find that album is now 40 years old.. hopefully its been remastered and can be brought at JB Hi Fi, if not, a Vinyl or CD version on Ebay.

This scenario has played out for me hundreds of times, remembering a time in my life, hunting down  the music, listening, downloading then wanting to find the best possible sound available, spending thousands on CDs, Vinyl, or Tapes over the years..

The Links on this Site are links to my own personal library, the music I Grew Up With.

The fact that Bands, Record Company's & the like think they can still make money with their 40 year old albums is, in one word... Delusional, but as we can see here with threats of legal action to those who share 'LINKS'... its very real

So, to those who say "its Illegal to Share Music'... I'm not Sharing Music, I'm providing Links..Nothing is 'Shared' on this site.

At the end of the day, there are ways and means of doing things, i don't make CDs and sell them at some pathetic over inflated price, No, that's what record company's are for, but to be treated like this for doing something i believed in, is just low.. But Hey, That's the Music industry for You

End of Rant...

PSEUDO ECHO LINKS - DELETED

 Hello and Welcome Back... Sad news this morning with take down notice from one of my fav Synth Pop Bands 'Pseudo Echo'

 


To Say i'm disappointment and saddened is a understatement...

Its a Sad state of affairs that bands and Management just don't get that sites like Electronic80s is literally giving them 'free advertisement' of their work.

Guess how many albums i have brought on CD after listening to a download, love the album and went and brought a better copy, It would be in the thousands..(i'm not joking) 

I Loved this band and their music since High School and listening to their music brings back so many happy memories, which is why started this Electronic80s, to share the love and happiness that music brings to our lives

Being a musician myself with the outfit 'Dream Sequence', sure the music was shitty and weird but it hours and hours i spent crafting these sounds, not to the extent or popularity as Pseudo Echo (The Russians seemed to like it, yay, go Russians) but i'm more than happy for people to share my music, the more the better, but for some, sadly its always about one thing..

Sometimes, Not everything is about Money.

NOTE = All links to Pseudo Echo albums have now been deleted.

Also as stated in the disclaimer on this site, NO Music is stored on this Site..

MADONNA - TRUE BLUE (Remastered & Expanded)

 Hello and Welcome Back... Exclusive to Electronic80s Readers

Over the years, various albums have had the 'Remastered' label attached often with excellent versions of 12" Dance, Remixes & Live Versions... Sadly, this has not happened with Madonna albums, exp the 80s albums for some reason.


 

I have sought to change this, not through a record label because that's never going to happen but for loyal readers of Electronic80s, this ones for you..

The original album 'True Blue' was released in 1986 and spawned 5 hit singles.. That's bloody impressive.

What was missing was the excellent 12inch singles 


TRACKLIST

01  Papa Don't Preach
02  Open Your Heart
03  White Heat
04  Live To Tell
05  Where's The Party
06  True Blue
07  La Isla Bonita
08  Jimmy Jimmy
09  Love Makes The World Go Round
10  Papa Don’t Preach (Extended Remix) (Bonus Track)
11  La Isla Bonita (Extended Remix) (Bonus Track)
12  Open Your Heart (Extended Version) (Bonus Track)
13  Wheres The Party (Dub Version) (Bonus Track)
14  True Blue (The Color Mix) (Bonus Track)

Sadly, i wanted to add more (B-Sides, Live  & Instrumental Tracks) but could only fit so much on a CD

Please, If you Can, hit the 'Shout Me A Coffee' button and help support this site. Every $ is used to keep this site going, from various albums to storage space needed.. Thank You
