FIST – In The Red – All Selections
RAINY DAY EXPERIMENT!
Just a new experiment in music preservation by me. Something to do on this rainy day. As a part of my preservation experiment, I’m taking old LP records and cleaning them up and converting them to mp3s. The cuts heard here are non-existent and not available on CD because they were never released…so far as I know. Furthermore, as a disclaimer – and because I am a songwriter – I don’t promote copyright infringement, but I do believe that good music needs to be preserved. The record companies that once promoted bands like Fist obviously lost all interest in them, given they never saw fit to release a CD version. So, here is some rare good Canadian rock music! I present to you, as part of this rainy day experiment, Ottawa rockers FIST! My initial selection from their album “In The Red” is Over The Line. BTW, I found this album at Value Village I do believe?
UPDATE***UPDATE***UPDATE***March 06 2012***UPDATE
Just digitized the album again. Another day and it should be up. I’m thinking I’ll put it in Box[dot]com for access. Just need another day because I have to process it to get out some of the nicks and scratches. The album is old and I didn’t take too good of care for it. The last two tracks on side two need work. Hopefully, I can restore to it’s full glory. Wait should be worth it. SOOOOOON! 🙂

P.S. Sorry couldn’t make them downloadable. However, I’m sure there is a way to do it? I seem to recall a program mp3tomp3 had that capability. I’m sure there’s others?
Over The Line
March 6th I put the link to the original version of Over the Line by Eddie Shwartz. Just leaving it here as a matter of interest.
