Just did a blog-wide search for this, and here it is -- and it looks like you've only just put it on! I have the LP, but nice to have digitized now.

Do you have any more of the Oak Label stuff on Tenth Planet?

Thanks!

Hi jeanbernard,

I've downloaded it at soulseek, so it's very hard to say who's got the original copy.

Wow, I always wanted to get this Kingpins collection. But the Tenth Planet stuff was always so hard to find or so expensive. I always thought "Maybe Sometime" was such a wild classic, I like the cheap production.

This singers voice was so deep like Tony McPhee of The Groundhogs and alawys cracking really badly but yet the singer of The Kingpins wrongly thought that he had a thin voice like Steve Marriott. All of which produces a unique result when you hear the Kingpins music, this guy with this heavy Groundhogs type voice trying to do Steve Marriott type stuff.

Thanks!
Mick
