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.

Rotary Connection: Peace


Okay, Silly Earthlings! Who Stole My PEACE Pipe!?!

And I'm not talking about a sorry bit of Drug Paraphernalia. I'm talking about one of the many and very impressive and incredibly important tubes that pokes out of my very impressive and incredibly important helmet. It's the one pipe that helps me control my Madness. I mean... My Temper! It also helps me keep my Brain Gas inside my skull!

Damnit! My Very Impressive and Incredibly Important Martian Intelligence is going to seep out of my Freakin' Hat thanks to you people!

I should be quite angry and, out of retribution, not share with you this incredible recording. I'm not gonna do that, though.

It's called "Peace" and it's by Rotary Connection. It has everything you could ever need during the Holidays... Traditional Christmas Tunes, Loud Wailing Psychedelic Hippie Guitar, Sweet Smooth Soul and, even, Obvious Drug Reference Lyrics!

Various Artists: Christmas Guitars


Happy Holidays, Silly Earthlings!




I'm Back! The idiot Traitor Vic forgot to lock the door after I left in August and now I, Voldar, have returned to wreak Holiday Havok on The Tuna Melt!

I got here just in time for the Holiday Season! Yesterday was Thanksgiving here in the USA and that is, traditionally, the beginning of the season that encompasses Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and New Years. There aren't many people, of course, who celebrate all four of those, but it's a fairly good number of holidays in a relatively short time. I say that's a good reason to celebrate all by itself!

I have always avoided ripping from Cassette Tapes, but that is the only format that I had a copy of this on. Luckily, our pal Eddie Riff (over at Eddie's Riffs) was kind enough to supply a copy he ripped from his Compact Disc. Thanks, Eddie!

This one is called Christmas Guitars and it features performances by Larry Coryell, Al Anderson, Taj Majal, Adrian Belew, Terre Roche and a few others.
