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.

Sounds Galactic: An Astromusical Odyssey


Re-Upped and Re-Mastered! An Astromusical Odyssey.


This one was up for a relatively short time on the old site and it's a Really Awesome record, so I figured I'd better post it again.

This record is a Space Age Pop Monster. The back of the cover contains the only clue to it's actual contents in that it sports a line that says "Arrangements JOHN KEATING".

I find it rather hard to believe that Arranging was the only thing John Keating did on this record, though, as it is easily comparable to Keating's "Space Experience" records. It's possible that someone else conducted the orchestra, but it certainly has the John Keating Sound (including a fair amount of synthesizer work).

If you didn't get it before, you now have another opportunity. DO NOT LET THIS ONE PASS YOU BY!

Thank you so very very much. That's a record I will never forget. I delete the tape by mistake and I've been searching it since I was a child.

Glad to see people who love this record can find it! I, too, discovered this one as a youngster and only happened upon it, years later, in a Used Record Store. It really is a a Wonderful Slab o' Wax!

Vic, Could this possibly be re-upped to a different site as rapidshare is now gone. Zippyshare perhaps ?

Many thanks

John
