Welcome to The Tuna Melt Music Sharity Blog!

It is here that I post old records that I've ripped
to Mp3 format (and grouped in .ZIP files) via File Sharing Sites,
album cover scans and, sometimes,
somewhat coherent ramblings related to said shares.

None of the shares here are "borrowed" from other blogs.
All of the items shared are rips of Out-of-Print
(or, at least, very difficult to get)
Vinyl Records from my own collection.

Come on in. Look around.
Scroll downward to find available links.
I hope you find something you like.

If you don't,
you can always come back later, as the variety
of what is made available should be pretty wide-ranging.

Of course your blog has literally zillions of readers* who don't want you to go. We check every few days or so to see if you've had a chance to post, read comments, etc... new download or not. Perhaps if you could elaborate on what brought you to question it's worth we could give you some more relevant arm-twisting. Still, do what you have to do. I can say I've learned a lot here. And the Tuna-Melt is the closest thing to a perfect sandwich. I would hate to lose that one either.


*Yeah, zillions. I'm not kidding. We're just too shy to post most of the time, but we're there.

Gotta agree with SM. It's hard to be helpful without more info.

That said, this blog is a product of your effort and passion. Only you can determine if the hurdles are worth jumping.

My hope is that you will continue to entertain and inform, but if not, just wanted to say thank you.

Hi Trader Vic. I check your blog regularly and can appreciate the hassle of a-holes deleteing your uploads. I hope you stay but would understand if you go. By the way - Thanks again for reposting the Fleshtones - Roman Gods for me. It has always been one of my favorites.

Sometimes blogging can be a pain in the arse but I only do it when I can be arsed, I think having a more laid back attitude makes it all the worth while & you know people are gonna stumble across the site even if you don't do anything and you might not do anything for months. If the quality is there then others will keep the blood flowing through the site by visits/downloads etc. Most blogs pack in after a year though...

Only found you a month ago. Regular visitor since then (about 2x/week). Would hate to see you go because you seem to understand that sometimes quality was lost in the marketing or whatever. Lots of great music out there and the fact that you care enough to make it available for a listen is a service to all.

Hope you stay.

I've been checking out these blogs for a few months now but I'm afraid I was a Johnny come lately to your site. I only learned of it through the Rolling Stone post but I've thoroughly enjoyed the high quality of this site in the short time I've been visiting. To be perfectly honest, I'm one of the silent majority in the comments department too, sorry about that... I'm sure it's a total pain in the ass to have to rebuild something that took your time and effort but clearly this site was a labor of love for you. I hope that you'll find it a worthwhile endevor to continue, but in the event that you don't, thanks for lots of cool words and tunes.

So sorry to see what's been going on with your blog, Vic! :((((

I hope the mailing list idea works out and that you keep the sharing flag flying high!

Have a high ball on me and don't let them get you down!! :))
