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.

The Lucy Show: Mania


Lucy! I'm Home!


I don't know much about this band. Despite the information available on the Net (primarily at http://www.thelucyshow.net/) I find it hard to really know a lot about a band without having heard much out of them. That being said… I would LOVE to know more about this band.

I do know the band was formed in South London in 1982 by two ex-pat Canadians,
Mark Bandola and Rob Vandeven, and that they remained together until 1989.

This record was released in 1986 and is simply amazing! It's Pop, but it has a Punk Informed edge and just enough of a Guitar Band quality to keep it squarely in the Pop-Rock category. This is the beginning of the Alternative scene that swept through in the 90s. In this record I hear R.E.M., The Psychedelic Furs, Rain Parade, David Bowie, several other bands who's names I can't recall at the moment, and (at some level) The Hoodoo Gurus? Maybe?

Anyway… It's a great record. Enjoy!

Boy, you sure had me fooled:
Thought this blog had disappeared forever due to your comments recently on the YourPalDoug blog and the title of the group, sounded like the title of a TV "Lucy Show" with Lucille Ball soundtrack [cue veteran radio/TV comic character actor Gale Gordon from the show:"Lucy Carmichael"!!]
