Rapidshare.DE to Rapidshare.COM #2
Anonymous question was 'if I switch to RS.com can I still use my RS.de premium account or both'.'
My answer to him and you all.
Reply to anonymous.
I use WinXP as OS and Flashget as downloadmanager (so NO Rapidget !).
I'm (still) able to premium download on (now) both RS sites. No prob at all. It all goes automatically.
Later I discovered the way I did change to RS.com is described in the FAQ of RS.com. So look also over there (and check the other buttons). Always first read the instructions and than do something.... :-)
I will not give garantee but my advice is to switch (when you use WinXP as OS).
Just one remark about premium points.
I personally duplicated already all my RS.de links to RS.com (very easy to do ; explained at RS.com. See there 'remote upload' : RS.com does 'the trick', very fast !).
I don't give a damn about those points as I said but others will. Lot of people search for items on Google which you have on your BLog. They don't give a damn about your BLog and why you
are writing about your passion and give examples of low rate mp3's of your LP's. They don't want to discuss your items.
So they are just takers/leechers (as you my dear reader maybe are). I noticed my amount of downloads (some/few/super small compared to what I see elsewhere but I don't mind) but very few comments ..!!
Suggestion you/anyone read (I am more than quite certain there are a lot of other places/info also) :
So today no LP to listen to but something else very interesting to read and to reply.

Wedding day : I wanna be your man ?
It's just like a marriage. You see a nice girl and marry. But are all the other girls 'nothing' ?
Somehow one seems to stick to the first one you really like above all the others.
Somehow I think the same goes for your religion. Mostly you believe what your parents believe. That's why the world is so 'devided' in the Christian world, the so called moslim states, the Hindu world and so on.
Somehow I think the same goes for your political view. Aren't you affected by the thoughts of your parents ?
Somehow I think the same goes for .....
Ever thought about that ?
Talking and discussing. I/we did that for hours. Just a few weeks ago I learned that the daughters of one of my best friends didn't like it much at the time (We never agreed and they'd mostly didn't win the discussion) but now they know how important that (educational) was for them. No one can teach them a lesson, they know what they are worth. Independent. Sooo important.
Ah, just some thoughts today. My 30th wedding day. Difficult talking or no talking at all. Problems. Living apart now for almost 5 years. No solution. I'm used to it now. Not satisfied, especially because of the children.
What will you, my readers, think about this all ?
Back to the music you will be interested more/only .....
Paul & John wrote I wanna be your man for Richard Starkey (Ringo, who didn't have much singing capabilities) but gave the song also to the Rolling Stones.
In the seventies I met a, to me special, girl and I wanted to be her her man.
See the comment and hope you like it.

Luckily there were also a lot of sensible people. They liked a real 'band' : The great majestic Rolling Stones !

Fairport's Full House
Sandy has also been part of Fairport Convention. I had already 'in stock' for you an old LP 70-Fairport Convention - Full house. Didn't have time to post it here, but now I will.
Sadly there's no Sandy on it but it's really worth to listen to.
AMG Review by Stephen Winnick & Bruce Eder
Fairport Convention is a group that has always beaten the odds — that's why a version of the band is working in the 21st century. By the time of this, the group's fifth album, key members Ashley Hutchings and Sandy Denny had exited the lineup, yet the group continued here without skipping a beat, for the first time without a female singer — and it turned out not to make a major difference. Richard Thompson and Dave Swarbrick took over as singers, and Dave Pegg (more recently of Jethro Tull) joined on bass, and the resulting album was actually more viscerally exciting than its predecessor, Liege and Lief, if not quite as important as that record, since it came first. Even vocally, this version of the group needed offer no apologies. Thompson, Swarbrick, Pegg, and Simon Nicol harmonize beautifully around strong lead vocals. Not only does the singing here retain the high standard of the earlier incarnation of the group (check out the harmony singing on "Sir Patrick Spens" and "Flowers of the Forest"), but the playing throughout has greater urgency and punch, from the rousing Thompson-Swarbrick opener "Walk Awhile" to the haunting, moody, dazzling nine-minute "Sloth," which remained part of the group's live set for years. An indispensable recording, and one that anybody who wants to truly know this band, or to take in some of the best work of Richard Thompson's career, must own (his playing on "Sloth" and "Doctor of Physick" makes it worthwhile). Swarbrick's fiddle and viola playing is also among the best of his career. Ironically, Thompson would make this his last full-time studio venture with Fairport, but what a way to go!
When I got your interest look in the comments for further details.

Cliff in Spain
Nowadays we like them both.
Someone asked for some Cliff Richard songs and he seems to be especially interested to get 63-Richard, Cliff - When in Spain in a short time.
Although I have quite a few I sadly don't have this, or do I ?
I wanted to give the link but sadly it's gone due to inactivity.
So I had to re-upload it but at the same time I can offer it to you, thanks to nong sey nyo !
To listen to Cliff in Spanish look in the comments.

Paul Simon happy birthday
So today Paul is celebrating his 65 birthday !
In a career dating back to the 1950s, Paul Simon has established himself among the best and most popular songwriters of the rock era. Growing up in Queens, NY, Paul Simon befriended schoolmate Art Garfunkel, who had an angelic tenor voice, and the two teamed up as Tom & Jerry, taking the names of the cartoon characters.
Look at the picture above. Isn't that cute compared to the way they looked when they recorded those well known songs as Simon & Garfunkel ?
Paul continued to try to score hits in the late '50s and early '60s, reaching the charts briefly in 1962 in the group Tico & the Triumphs with "Motorcycle" and under the name Jerry Landis in 1963 with "The Lone Teen Ranger."
I played today some of his solo albums but I also looked in my archives for some of his real oldies. I decided to offer you Paul as Tico.
Look in the comments to get some of those songs. Included is his small hit 61-Motorcycle. Sorry for the 'crackles' but that belongs to the real oldies.

Some Buddy covers
I must have at the moment 350-400 on various sources.
How sadly did Buddy die in a plane crash together with Ritchie Valens and JP Richardson (The big Bopper).
Here's one of the Newscasts about that crash. I have also a short videotape of the accident. Looked at it again last week and was wondering how things should have been if not ..... Memories.
Of course Buddy's been covered a lot. Look in the comments to listen to a few.
The mp3's of this event only got 5 downloaders as of today... So I deleted this broadcasts.

McLean, Don - American Pie
When Buddy Holly, The Big Bopper and Ritchie Valens died in the plane crash it really was to me the day the music died.
Don Mclean made a great song with that title on his second LP made in 1971.
Also included is the song Vincent which is about the great Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh.
See the comments to listen to it.

Moments of Popcorn on Laser radio
You can count with us Popcornlovers using the counter on the left untill zero.
Tonight's show is called Moments of Popcorn named after #06 Davis, Joyce - Moments (to remember).
Moments to remember .... I intend to join Theo and his 'side-kick' Brigitte in the studio. Of course flowers to Brigitte and for Theo 3 DVD's with almost all of his shows of the R192 years in mp3.
What a superb choice Theo has compiled again. Look and look again at the playlist !
How many of these songs/singles/LP tracks do you have in your collection ? Five, seven ? Of course there are some songs we Popcorn lovers know for a long time but again he managed to get some completely unknown songs. I can already feel the enthousiasm in the chatroom when they are air played !
One of the songs Theo will play (#13) is the beautiful 64-Danleers - Were you there.
One can say this Brooklyn group was a one hit wonder. Their first hit 'One summer night' was also their only one : it sold over a million copies.
Still The Danleers became one of the most successful vocal groups of the late '50s.
After performing at Alan Freed's Labor Day Extravaganza at the Brooklyn Fox Theater The Danleers joined Frankie Avalon, Bobby Darin, Eddie Cochran, Connie Francis, Dion & the Belmonts, Buddy Holly & the Crickets, Clyde McPhatter, and the Coasters in a nationally touring road show.
See as usual the comments to get some extra info about the Danleers .... :-)
Saturday you can JOIN us at 20 hrs EET to have some wonderful oldies to listen to.
If you do and like the prg (and of course you will like it, I'm certain !) please leave a comment in the guestbook/gastenboek over there !

When you look at my BLog you may think I only like the real oldies.
Made today 2 dvd's for my daughter with something they call today 'music'. Really hope she will like it. I don't.
Same goes for my musical appreciation. You can like/dislike it.
Take for instance Frank Zappa's music. I have 20 LP/CD's by him.
I personally like his early music. To a not American it is more understandable than his later compositions. I understand his later work is still great but I have the problem I don't really quite understand his orchestrations.
Anyway I had tonight an enoyable evening with (amongst 2 others) his
68-Mothers of Invention - Cruising With Ruben & The Jets
I know this may be not his best LP/CD but to me it brings backs back some nice memories of the end 60's.
See the comments.
