Jive Scratch Trax  

 Back in the distant past I posted up both the 1982 released Jive rhythm version albums, 'Jive Rhythm Trax' and 'More Jive Rhythm Trax', but I never put up the third in the series, 1983's Jive Scratch Trax, because my copy is beat to shit and I always said I would hold off on the tedious task of ripping all four sides of this double album of electro instrumental dubs until I came across a decent copy. Well I never came by a decent copy, and I refuse to buy one on the internet, so I'm just going to record and put up the one I have, at least it gives you an idea of what its all about.

The first track on the A Side, BPM 117, is especially noisy, but they get better..

1. BPM 117
2. BPM 111
3. BPM 122
4. BPM 120
5. BPM 115
6. BPM 99
7. BPM 110
8. BPM 107
9. BPM 117
10. BPM 120
11. BPM 112
12. BPM 118

    I was sure I did, but looking for it now I can't find it either. I apologize. If thats the case I will put it up.

    All I can find on this blog is "More Jive Rhythm Trax", which is awesome, and I've been using for years.

    Any chance you can post the first album in this series as well?
