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

A Place To Find Some Rarer Tunes (Mod, PowerPop, Punk, Ska) ripped from my vinyl collection. If it sounds good I'll post it. The idea being 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.

Laurie and the sighs - Only the lonely (1980)

B/w - Sympathy

This is a UK issue 45 for the North American Broadway star Laurie Beechman & friends. (I'm not even sure if this was released in the States - I suspect the answer is probably!!)
Neither of these tracks are featured on their one & only LP

Anyway this is cool powerpop/pop rock cover of the Roy Orbison classic. Whilst Sympathy is co-written by none other than the powerpop demi-god D.L Byron (for more of his stuff go here)

Sounds & scans below



  1. Cool one (Roy Orbison and D.L. Byron!)

  2. Could you please re link this? I love Sympathy and can't find it anywhere else
