If you want to upload an album or songs to this section of the site, please ensure that it's not already on a physically available CD or one that's slated for future release on CD. By that we mean the actual Disc with artwork and packaging which you can physically hold in your hands.

To check on that availability, most often but not always on independent labels, the best sources  are reputable music traders like JB Hi Fi, Sydney's Red Eye Records & Timewarp's mail order division and for major label releases only, Sanity. Also check an artist's or a record label's online website ie Aztec Music, Raven or Canetoad Records. If you're still unsure then please ASK as someone is sure to know.

The minimum bitrate to upload at is 256kbps but must be 320 if ripping the music yourself.  Lower bit rates may only be accepted if there truly is no other option ie you are a 2nd or 3rd party . Many would disagree, but it's sometimes better to have something of extreme rarity in poor quality than not at all. But again ask if someone has a better rip before uploading your inferior one.

Artwork is highly desired but not a pre-requisite when uploading as someone in the group may be able to provide it later if you can't e.g. you have no scanner. However in all cases when posting an album in the discussion forum, please let us know if the CD art is included or not. If it is then is it

(a) the full artwork CD ready ie front & back cover scans, any gatefold inserts and tray insert. For best results we recommend scanning all 4 corners of L.P. covers before stitching so all information on the cover is available.
(b) just front & back only with no tray insert
(c) or just front cover scan only. The latter is to be discouraged completely unless you intend providing the back scan later. In which case wait till then & upload both.

ALWAYS: If providing art, please also list it as A SEPARATE LINK even if it is included with the main music file. This is so that others who only need the art don't have to download 80-100 mg of music they already own to get it.

Lastly, we appreciate that some here do have difficulty in stitching the scans together, so it is initially acceptable to upload unstitched scans. Someone may help & do the job for you, uploading these at a later stage. However it is strongly suggested that you keep practicing your own skills .

Re: Steve Hoy - Anticipation

Thanks Tarago,
After Life Next Door, looking forward to this ....with...well...anticipation.

Re: Steve Hoy - Anticipation

Thanks very much for this one tarago. Really looking forward to giving it a spin.



Re: Steve Hoy - Anticipation

Thanks so much for Anticipation - been on the wants list for a long time!

Re: Steve Hoy - Anticipation

Greatly appreciated Tarago. Very sought after album.

Re: Steve Hoy - Anticipation

Another thanks here too Tarago

Nice to see that Steve, who always seemed to commance the very best backing musos if not commercial success, is enjoying some belated popularity though our group

Foe those who are interested in such things (thanks for the support guys ), this was Steve's 1984 debut album produced by Joe Camilleri & released on Joe's own Spirit label. Interestingly, apart from Joe also doubling (tripling?) on sax, the other musicians include 3/4 of Daddy Cool: Ross Hannaford (Guitar), Wayne Duncan (Bass) & Gary Young (Drums)

Add Steve's music which combines elements of blues, folk, country & rock and I think that's all the recommendation one would need to give this one a try )Isn't it? )

Thanks again Tarago

It's enough for me (& looking through the archives, I see Richard & Jeepster were both after this back in 2008. Hope you're still around guys)



Re: Steve Hoy - Anticipation

Yes still around Micko and enjoying the great Midoztouch site. Hope to get a little more involved now having moved back to Australia from NZ a few months ago. Now on the beautiful Sunshine Coast in Queensland.
