Fundraiser #2

Posted by DjPaulT on September 26th, 2014

Hi everybody! Happy Friday and a nice weekend to you all. For the last two years I have been paying a web hosting company to host Burning The Ground. I had a two year contract with them. That two year contract is now coming to an end on October 5, 2014. What this means is I will need to renew my hosting before the deadline. In order to do this, I need to raise $140.00 for another two year contract. You guys were so helpful with the last fundraiser, so I know I can count on your help again. Hopefully we can get the funds raised over the weekend and I can renew the contract on Monday.

I do understand that times are hard for many of us. Any amount donated is appreciated. You can help with this fund raising effort by donating to my PayPal account. It’s easy, secure, and you do not have to have a PayPal account. Just click on any of the yellow “donate” buttons on the site to make your donation.

Thank you,

Paul (DjPaulT)

Grace Jones – Living My Life (Portugal 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on September 25th, 2014

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1983

A. Front

“Living My Life” is a Grace Jones song released as a single in 1983.

The track was originally recorded for the album of the same name, but for unknown reasons (most likely that the pop-oriented record did not fit the overall reggae sound of the album) it did not make the final cut. It received a scarce 1983 release as a UK white label single and was officially released only in Portugal. Jones, however, performed the track on several TV shows. A remixed version was released as the B-side to the UK reissue single of “Love is the Drug” in 1986. This version appears on the 1998 compilation Private Life: The Compass Point Sessions. The original and dub versions are yet to be reissued on CD.
