Regarding Volume 7

Apparently UW Volume 7 is currently unavailable for download due to a copyright claim on the John Keen track. I'll re-upload this volume with a different track in place of that one - my apologies for the down time.

(edit: I've replaced John Keen with Damnation of Adam Blessing and replaced the download link.)

Uncharted Waters Volume 10

Here we are at Number 10...hopefully this series will keep going for a while and I'll be able to make it twenty, or thirty, or even farther. To the moon!

There was a delay in making this one because I had to order a new stylus for the turntable...didn't want to ruin my records any more than they already have been ruined.  So if these sound a little odd, it could be because the stylus hasn't been broken in yet - but they sound OK to my ears, so no worries there. On this one we've got a couple of overseas hitmakers (Blue Mink, Pickettywitch), some great promo-only records that never had a shot at being hits (Mancini & Fox), and even a complete mystery record (Child). Here's the track listing...

1.    Cotton Candy – Billy (ABC Dunhill 45-D-4190, 1969)
2.    Mancini and Fox – (But I Could Reach) The Wisdom Of Soloman (Event EV 210, 1972)
3.    Heaven Bound with Tony Scotti – Five Hundred Miles (MGM 14314, 1971)
4.    These Vizitors – For Mary’s Sake (Capitol 2163, 1968)
5.    The Berkeley Kites – Hang Up City (Minaret MIN-132, 1968)
6.    Willie and the Red Rubber Band – I’ll Stay With You (RCA Victor 47-9628, 1968)
7.    The Fuzzy Bunnies – Lemons And Limes (Decca 32364, 1968)
8.    The Razor’s Edge – Let’s Call It A Day Girl (Pow! 101, 1966)
9.    The Savage Rose – Long Before I Was Born (Polydor PD 2-15007, 1971)
10.    Pickettywitch – Maybe We’ve Been Loving Too Long (Janus J-118, 1970)
11.    The New Lime – Sunny (Minaret 150, 1969)
12.    Blue Mink – The Banner Man (Bell 45-125, 1971)
13.    Stone Country – Time Isn’t There (Anymore) (RCA Victor 47-9301, 1967)
14.    Child – World Of Liberty (Cobweb 001, ????)
15.    Sixth Day Creation – You’re Better By Far (Laurie LR-3483, 1969)
