This one is especially precious to me for it’s presence of ‘Babylon Queendom’, which ranks very high on my all-time Tosh recordings list. Hope you all enjoy as well.

Depeche mode-the complete hidden tracks

Oh yes, the Mode. We all know that they are living legends in this. While the title of this disc is a bit....ostentatious it contains some cool stuff nonetheless. While I always prefer older Depeche Mode it's hard to deny that some of these b-sides, remixes and such are amazing to the ear. Give a listen and spread it around y'all.

Stone Temple Pilots - Unreleased and Outtakes

Anyone who is remotely near DaddyRich's age (ancient) can recall first hearing these fine fellows first when MTv started playing 'Sex-Type Thing' in heavy rotation way back when. I always liked and still do like that song but they seemed to me to fall in the cracks of what was then and now (sadly) called 'Grunge' (cringe). I am sure that a few people in and around San Diego saw some potential is the then-named Mighty Joe Young and their brilliantly talented rhythm section and freaky singer. But it wasn't until the release of 'Purple' that, to me, it seemed these cats had put it all together and I began my internal countdown that begins ticking when an immensely talented group with a freaky-talented singer comes to my notice. I gave them about 2 years before I figured they would break up and be done and not heard from, again until MTv decided to release a various artists kind of "remember-the-90's 2 disc set". I may have been off by a bit and gladly so, my friends. After dalliances with other bands, and having varying degrees of success they have decided to reunite and, oh, it truly feels so good. Doesn't it? Here for todays helping of goodness is a collection of outtakes and unreleased songs dating from the late 90's to their last studio offering and contains some worthy gems for your esteemed ears. To my (albeit limited) knowledge these slabs have not seen release, official or otherwise as a collection. As always, share this stuff folks and you know DaddyRich welcomes any friends offering wisdom on these cuts if they have it. We are willing to learn and credit will be given. Peace.

Studio Outtakes -

Contains, to my knowledge, untitled tracks and little jams.

Unreleased Stuff -

Culled mainly from sessions for the "No. 4" and "Shang-Ri-La-Dee-Da" albums and are quite tasty.

Back From The Dead!!!!!!!

I couldn't find any pictures of Ben Franklin as a zombie with which to illustrate my being back from the dead, so just try and picture it in your mind my friends. After a period of laying low and waiting for some heat to die down, it's time. Regular posts will begin on here soon. I thank all of you again for all the kind e-mails and words of encouragement.
