SUGGESTIONS & GUIDELINES FOR USE IN DISCUSSION FORUM
 
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 .

Flemington Dream - Vaughan Hillier with Grand Junction

Hi Everyone, I found this little oddity on ebay some months ago.
Being a Flying Circus and Grand Junction fan, I had never heard of this single before and could not find mention of it anywhere here.

So I have ripped it to MP3 at 320kbps and scanned the cover and labels. The 45 I have is a promotional copy (white label on Epic).


Here is what I can tell you about this record (which is not much)

The lyrics were written by Hughie Mackintosh Davidson.

Vocals were performed by Vaughn Hillier

Music was performed by Grand Junction. (Side B is an instrumental so it's a Grand Junction track)

It was recorded at Kanandra Studios (spelt incorrectly on the record label) which was in Westmead, Sydney NSW. Vaughn Hillier was part owner of the studio.

Released in 1981. CBS/EPIC ES664

Here is the link to download the single (artwork included).

Enjoy

Re: Flemington Dream - Vaughan Hillier with Grand Junction

when I was Vaughn hillier I had to think for a minute!
I was in his band ,it was my first real band ,I was only about 17,we are talking 1972/3
the studio wasn't going then,but was functional,to record our own demo's the guitarist/trumpet player was related to guy Lombardo ! I remember,vaughn made the desk,and although he was legally blind did all the soldering himself,his glasses were as thick as coke bottles,at the time they had a scully reel to reel,which replaced a revox and ferrogram, they had jbl monitors ,like a 4312,and all crown power amps, the studio was opposite Parramatta park,in westmead and was his grandmothers place,at one stage,as he lived in castle hill,looked a very normal house from the outside but was insulated,and made into a very nice studio,the band became less important as the studio became more and more finished,and eventually became full time for Vaughn and I think a guy called dave, sorry about the rave but theres some history of a studio that recorded some big names in its day,nice guy too! and he liked playing Derek and clive too,
