NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just found your blog a few weeks ago!!!

Oh, well. You gotta do what you gotta do. Is it too much to hope that the links will be up for very long?

Thanks

wow skids! end of an era! You've got an amazing collection, and I personally have loved your uploads. Your blog joins ausrock and 80stapes as the best 80s music blogs out there, for ever!

good luck for the future, and many thanks!

Sad to see you go, but I have grabbed just about everything you've posted so thanks so much for sharing the music from the best music era. All the best. :)

thanks Skidd all the best in what ever you do...these compilations were the hits in my eyes and always will be. the good thing about them is that record companies will never produce them again to which they make them more a collectable. As i always says it's nice to have a copy, but better when you own the original. Cheers Rod NSW -

Hey Skids
Sorry to see ya hangin' up your 'boots' and leaving us.
Your site was (and still is) one of my favourite's as I too grew up on these K-Tel releases.
Thanks fo all the great posts and to all those who contributed to the site.
Hope to see you still poping your head in at Midoztouch

Brian said...

what is the reason for your departure, skids - I was so hoping you'd fix the download probs of your earlier blogs...circa 2008 or thereabouts, none of the tracks of 20 Red Hot Hits ever came out right :(

bluetone1961 said...

you must have your good reasons and i respect them. Still its sad when a good blog closes/is closed down, and theres been few of them of late.
Good luck and thanks a lot

Thanks mate, you touched the K-Tel Record Selector in each of us. And you didn't let the bastards get you down, even when they tried their best.

I guess all things must pass; we've been lucky you passed our way. I hope what you've built stays around for a while.

reselatte said...

I respect your choice, it's sad, that I found your Blog so late.
But better so, than I can get back some of the mem'ries of my childhood.
Thankx a lot, and good luck to you in the future

I also found this relatively late - a good feeling when you realise that you actually bought the LP many many years ago.

Best Wishes

Any hope of re-ups?
Otherwise this site is a veritable gold mine. Thanks to the uploader(s) - Ron

Costandino said...

Yes, links are not working. Cant even download one of my favs "ROCK EXPLOSION" I have the LP but its soooo scratched.
I love this site. YOur right mister, its a gold mine.\
