For best results, open each of the songs in its own window and play them all simultaneously. Man, what a racket!

Hey Debbie, did you snatch this from Soulseek and/or nimereht/Kogar? I originally started this mess a couple of years ago. Still got enough tunes sitting on my HD for about two or three more vols. Billy helped out along the way too, tipping me off on some interesting non-recorded tunes.

Debbie D said...

Hi Benjamin,

I've been compiling these comps for years too! I've done a bunch for the other WFMU blog. Billy told me you were keeping the master list for the A-Bones, but I never got around to getting your email address. I figured this post could be added to over time...

I think the Heinz link is the same as the Betty Dickson track.

Debbie D said...

Thanks for the heads up about Heinz. It is working now.

many thanks for this - any chance (master) list of other tunes can be made available - happily without mp3s?

Debbie D said...

I'm working on a part 2! Hopefully, coming soon.

Hey Debbie - This is great! Thanks for the head's up. So cool to hear the original "Wah Hey" again. So, "Someone's Gonna Get Their Head Kicked In" eh? Yeah like once live in Port Chester 15 years ago. If Billy included that he should probably have owned up to "Rain" by The Beatles and "Hot For Teacher" by Van Halen! I'll email you some others. xoxbb
