|So….here we are my friends. What I thought was “the last vestige” of what I considered a “safe” haven for my files has apparently been shut down by Mediafire. It looks like I can download my own files, but the rest of you are up shit’s creek. For Now. I don’t get it. Nothing posted here is for profit, and what really bugs me is that the vast majority of it is so old and obscure, no one really gives a shit. But I get Mediafire’s angle. They have a business to run and they don’t want the FBI breathing down their back, so EVERYONE gets treated like crap, and everyone loses. In the meantime, keep looking me up as I find alternative ways of sharing this great music with you. Perhaps I’ll do a CD-R type thing at a minimal cost to all of you, or maybe I’ll just find a better way to distribute this freely. We’ll see. Thanks for all of your comments and feedback It’s what’s kept this blog going for the last few years, and it’s what will keep it going in the future.Best wishes and I WILL BE BACK!|

I’m not exactly sure what’s up with Mediafire, but I’ve had one file booted from the site and I’ve since made “adjustments” to it and so far so good. But I did receive a comment from a follower from overseas (I must admit and apologize I couldn’t understand fully as he was writing in broken English) who said that they couldn’t download. I checked a few links and they were all working, although you had to enter a chapta to access to some, but that’s a minor inconvenience in my book. If anyone out there comes across any bad links let me know. I may have to go to “plan B” soon. Thanks
Bo Street Runners – Alladin (1966)
13th Precinct – You Gotta Be Mine / Junk Yard (1967)
Although long thought of as a group from the south, The 13th Precinct was from Sterling, IL which is west of Chicago. They originally were called “The Inspirations” and had an ace 45 on Feature titled “That Girl” which has made it on a few comps. The group also included Michael Murphy who ended up in REO Speedwagon for several of their albums (better ones I might add) before Kevin Kronin stepped in and made them a “hard pop” powerhouse. You can get lots more info on the fantastic website GARAGE HANGOVER.
