Over the coming months, you're going to see an old face to "Left and to the Back" rather than a new one... I've taken the decision to reupload some of the oldest entries on this blog to Box.net, and provide updated information on the bands where it's available.
Quiz question: Do you think I'm doing this because:
a/ Sharebee never did allow people to preview the tracks easily, meaning time-pressed people missed out on some of the earlier uploads?
b/ The blog's readership during the first year and a half of its life was quite low, so a lot of people have missed out on some of the better tracks?
c/ I've got a lot going on in my life right now, and can't keep on and on thinking up new entries for this blog all the time?
If you answered a, b or c, you are of course absolutely correct.
Don't worry, though - I hope to make the re-uploads an occasional appearance rather than a regular one, and the aim is to still update the blog twice a week with something, with at least one new entry in the offing. If you don't think the idea is working (which I'll be able to gather from the stats pretty quickly anyway) please drop me a comment telling me to cease and desist. In the meantime... let's see what happens.
