Just another site that's giving you hard to find music

These will be some Rarer tunes (Mod, powerpop, punk, ska, - if it's got a good sound I'll post it) ripped from my vinyl collection. The idea is that now you Know about them, You can seek them out!
If anyone is unhappy about any of these posts please contact me & I will take them off

Roy Hill - From The Bottom Of My Heart (1980)


b/w - And Two Three Four

Nice pop/rock on the A-side & an ever nicer track on the flip - I'd say someone had been listening to XTC.

I'm posting this as a follow on to an earlier post (you'll need to have a look to understand the next bit) The dead wax has HS 404 scratched out & 3 scratched in (someone really cocked up at the mastering / pressing stage)

If you want to know about Roy then there's a bio from May '78 in the download or a plethora of info here (strangely no mention of this 45 though)

There's a myspace that also fills in some of the gaps.

I suspect the players on this 45 were the same as those on the 2nd Peel session

Roy Hill (Guitar Voc)
John Knightsbridge (Guitar)
Chas Cronk (Bass)
Tony Fernandez (Drums)
Mike Taylor (Keyboards Voc)
Peter "Bimbo" Acock (Sax Voc)
