It was a total pleasure to receive R&R
Scars CD in two days of ordering. I
haven't heard this record since I taped
it in 1988. Needless to say I sold my records,
and the tape was all I had. Was a breath
of fresh air to hear this classic disc.

I’ve had nothing but good experiences
with the PayPal service so far. It’s
simple, quick, and saves me having to provide
credit card details direct to online sellers.
Sadly I’ve found I’ve had to
buy more and more Oz music CD’s from
overseas dealers lately because I just can’t
source them in Oz. Things just seem to get
deleted from the Oz music catalogues so
quickly these days (bloody record company
execs). The PayPal service comes in very
handy, and seems to have widespread acceptance
(here and overseas), and I’ve not
had a single problem (touch wood).

Dear Mr Rudd ,
The paypal ordering system service is very
professional ,very prompt and secure. Your
personal touch to confirm receipt of the
order is very refreshing. Congatulations
on getting it right and setting the standard
in online Music ordering . If only Music
Software was this easy to buy (direct )
in Australia .

Mike and Bill,
thank you so much for your prompt delivery.
Murtcepts sound as fantastic on my system
as the original vinyl did before I wore
the grooves clear through to the other side!
Thank you both also for helping me and my
mates groove through the seventies. You
helped us keep our heads and tune in with
varied and exciting aspects of the world
we never would have known otherwise.
You are indeed indelible!

Many thanks for the T- Shirt, its a very
kind gesture & I'll wear it with pride!
I'm a huge fan of you and Bill. I have only
just recently started to rebuild my music
collection after loosing my extensive vinyl
collection in the 1997 floods in Katherine
(NT) ....I think I was suffering a form
of music depression to take so long?, I
had all the Spectrum and Ariel LP's together
with Carson, Chain, Country Radio, etc,
I have found with utter amazement that their
is very little of that magnificent era of
Australian music available on CD re-release!
this is a disgrace and the nob heads that
run EMI and other big record labels should
be 'slung by the pile's' for not re-issuing
this fantastic material! I was however rapt
to find that you and Bill have taken matters
into your own hands and have Ariel Re-issues
available I am also waiting with great anticipation
for Aztec Music to release Spectrum, Part
One and Milesago!
I would be extremely happy to be on your
mailing list, and the PayPal service is
great.......very user friendly! and my T-Shirt
Many thanks again.....keep on rockin'
Lakey - Alice Springs 9.2.07
Many thanks for the great CD's which arrived
Like many of our age I enjoyed your music
in, for us, the formative years of Australian
pop/rock. It was a copy (not mine - sorry)
of what were best, first impressions from
Strange Fantastic Dream which first entertained
when I worked in Carnarvon (not far south
of Whim Creek..) in 1975. A recent cassette
cleanup revealed a still good copy of the
music which had aged gracefully in various
cassette carriers and car gloveboxes for
all those years.
But what did I know about this band? Couldn't
even spell the name correctly since the
pencilled cassette cover had faded (where
the hell are those glasses!) Thanks to the
www & Google your history and present
was much closer than I imagined and what
a buzz to read the key members of this band
were still making music.
Really glad to be paying the original artists
for what I enjoyed all those years ago.
If you ever make it back to Perth or south-west
WA I'll do my best to see whichever act
you're playing in... might even be able
to drag the misses along!
Thanks for making the music.. then and now.
All the best.

Received the CD today and it is fantastic.
I've been trying to get this in Second hand
stores for about 15 years.
Thanks very much. I'll have to make some
more orders in the near future.
Mike, Bill and everyone else
CD's and t-shirt arrived in great condition.
After hearing that the Jellabad Mutant had
finally been released I had to get it. I
hunted about for the band website as I prefer
to deal directly with the band if I can
to give them the $$.I ended up ordering
4 CD's and paid right away with PayPal (gotta
Next day I received an email. I thought
that it would just be an order confirmation
type email. It was from Mike, making the
offer of a free t-shirt.
Well what could I say? Yesssssssssssss.
I gave him My size as a cute XL and sat
there thinking that this is great service.
Cheap postage and now a free t-shirt!! But
most of all Mike sounded like a real down
to earth nice guy. Not many of us left these
This 54 year old body still gets out the
old Spectrum vinyl and plays it. They were
a real ground breaking Aussie band and it
is good to see that they are still playing
in one form or another.
Progressive Rock (evil words in some areas)
and blues have been a love of mine for years
from The Bay City Union and Chain (the first
REAL blues bands I heard live) to Spectrum.
Unfortunately the 60's ended about 1975
and the music changed. But the memories
A few years back thanks to the wonders of
the Internet I found a site www.progressiveears.com
with lovers of progressive music discussing
their passion. I have been a member for
about 5 years now and entered Spectrum and
Ariel in the Artists Directory section a
while back. Not many Aussies were members
then. Have a look if you get a chance. I
use the name Chain there.
Once again, thanks for the CD's, the t-shirt,
the music and the memories.
P.S. I took a pic of Me wearing the t-shirt.
I didn't want anything to distract

I was totally amazed when "Spill"
arrived at my house in the heart of the
Kent countryside here in the UK only 4 days
after ordering it from you guys via "PayPal"
in Melbourne. If only everything in life
happened that smoothly, what a joy it would
be!! I was so happy to receive a CD from
Spectrum that I never knew existed until
10 days ago.I left Melbourne in'76, a huge
fan of the great days Aus Rock- particularly
Chain, Country Radio, Carson, Daddy Cool,
Thorpie to namebut a few - and of course,
Spectrum.. "Superbody" still sounds
as though it could have been recorded yesterday.
The TF Much Ballroom and all those Saturday
arvo gigs in various pubs around the suburbs!!
How the hell did we survive!!
Thanks guys, - amazing memories, and thanks
PayPal for getting those CD's all the way
across the globe "in a flash".
