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

| Hi Mike,
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. Spectrum/Indelible
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
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, 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
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'

Many thanks for the great CD's which arrived today (Mon).
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
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
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
|Hi 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
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
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
P.S. I took a pic of Me wearing the t-shirt. I didn't want anything

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".
