    I love me some Rick Springfield Paul! So looking forward to hearing your rip as you really know what you’re doing to bring out the best from the 12-inch. I bet the quality is stellar.

    Thank you Jeff. No remixes but when I get a request along with a donation I am happy to fill it. Some of my readers just love having their favorite tracks from vinyl especially 24bit 🙂


    Jeff Reply:

    I fully understand and appreciate it all. I just know you’ve made the person who requested this record oh so very happy. Reading over your output over these past two years I see that a lot of requests have been filled throughout the history of BTG. You’re also VERY psychic Paul, because, you seem to get to a lot of tracks some of us start to think about. This makes your Burning The Ground such a hallowed place for many. That’s why our donations count. They help maintain your site and your equipment plus, you’re able to purchase a lot of the requests that are asked of you. You give back so much of yourself here Paul and you make me humbly grateful. I will send you an e-mail of a certain track I’d like to track down and pay for your time to rip it too and soon. So happy that you take our requests.

    Aw man… Kim Wilde, the Go-Go’s and now THIS, you’re killing it with these 1981 singles!

    10 year-old me used to listen to the 7″ on a cheap Mickey Mouse children’s record player in early ’82!

    Thanks a million for this, Paul!
