Marios said...

Hi friends, Thank you for your response, I have received quite a few requests, I am trying to respond to all of them, I have already uploaded a couple, and I have send some via email.

Josef Kloiber said...

Hi Marios,
i made a list of 20 bands i'm looking for.

Can you offer them to my e-mail ?
I would prefer that if you could send me the data via my mail address.
I would then give your the list via your e-mail.

Marios said...

Hi Josef, yes sure, use the form on Plain and Fancy blog, via email is Ok.

Josef Kloiber said...

Fabulous idea!

Hi Marios,

This one's probably impossible to find - I've been looking for this album for at least 10 years - but one never knows.

It's mentioned in Richie Unterberger's book on folk-rock. I'll paste his comments:

Jackie DeShannon, 1965 Metric Music Demo (1965, Metric Music Co.). Probably the most fiendishly rare item referred to in this discography, this album of publisher demos was only circulated within the music industry. A solitary acoustic guitar serving as accompaniment, it features strong, movingly sung, and from the sounds of things Bob Dylan-influenced, personal songs that approximate the approach frequently tapped by early folk-rock composers. Among them is a version of "Don't Doubt Yourself, Babe," which the Byrds covered on their first album.

Thanks for everything!

Marios said...

REQUESTS UPDATE: Hi FRIENDS, I try the best I can with lots of your requests, some of them are out of the music style I'm working on, some of them are from later dates, and others are very difficult to find, but I'm willing to do the best.

Anonymous said...

Dear finvarra,
you've been looking for J.DeShannon album for at least 10 years, perhaps 15 years?
You need to google 'Don't Doubt Yourself Babe - Acoustic Demos (1965)' and you'll find it in 5 seconds.
You are welcome, enjoy the music!

finvarra said...

Thanks, anonymous.
Yes, I know about that fan-made compilation. However, the "Metric Music Demos" that I've been looking for is at least 3-4 albums worth of material, not just the sampling that you referenced,
Take care!

leesa said...

I got one... prolly not something you're in to... but these guys are one of my fave-rave 80s Bands and I've been looking for this for some time: Go West - Kings of Wishful Thinking LIVE!

Marios said...

Hi Leesa, I don't have your e-mail, If you could send a message via "Request Form" on Plain and Fancy blog. Thank you!

leesa said...

I'm with Michael here. I'd LOVE that Jackie DeShannon collection!!!

Hello... Anybody knows why the blog is suddenly vanished?

Iconic Cacophony said... was a treasure trove - hope it comes back

Marios said...

REQUESTS UPDATE: Hi Friends, I've send many requests through email, but haven't any response, only few users answered, if someone used a fake e-mail address will never receive his file. One thing more, please let me know if you want flac format or is it ok with mp3, because most of your requests can be found on lossy format. Thank you.

leesa said...

Hey Marios!

I've been trying to find this lossless for a long while... I checked-out all those "certain places" (wink, wink, nudge, nudge) with no luck.
it's ironic in that I actually have the CD, but it's in storage where I can't get to it... sigh.

I had a crash recently. One album I can't find is Masquerade by ULC Quintet. I would be overjoyed if you could post it.

Marios said...

Hi Friends, I've respond many requests the last days,
check your mails, links last only for 7 days..

Beatnik said...

Hi Marios
I wonder if you can help me with a flac version of 1972 debut album of german krautrock band KRAAN. Thanks for investigating and rockin' regards Beatnik

Marios said...

Hi Beatnik, please fil the request box on Plain & Fancy blog, I'll send it to you via email.

Beatnik said...

Hi Marios, thanks for your reply, will do so. Can you please re-up this wonderful item ?

All the best :-)

Greetings Marios. Did you receive my request for James Gang Live In Concert (SHM-CD version)? Just making sure my request went through. Thank you

Marios said...

Hi Scmitty76, yes I did, everything is OK!

Psyclist said...

Hi Marios,

Request for the first 4 albums by Doug Orton

- Richard Brautigan's Body
- Sleepy Town
- The Attic Tapes
- Louise In Paris

I do have Satyrs of Sodom. Years ago I had these 4 LP's send to me by Doug Orton including sheets etc and letters. I bought them as mailorder after I heard Richard Brautigan's Body

It's psychedelic folk (mostly, except Satyrs of Sodom). I've never seen them anywhere shared. I would be forever grateful to find them here. Thx in advance.
