VA - The A to Z of Australian Rock (A Butterboy Compilation) (22xCD's) PART 11 S CD2 + T + UVWXYZ



VA - The A to Z of Australian Rock (A Butterboy Compilation) (22xCD's)

Most of the tracks chosen for this compilation are related to an artist’s first single. Where possible I have included the first single A or B side. Where these were not available I have included the album track which became a first single or an early single. The mix of tracks is thrilling. You may discover hard to find singles and/or hear a side of a band you may not have heard before. The acts are presented in alphabetic order and by year released.

I will share these in Parts (3 parts per week until completed).  I hope you have fun digging through the 714 track that make up this compilation.

This is the final installment of the A-Z of Australian Rock. I hope you enjoyed picking these up.

  1. Thanks a lot for this amazing set of compilations. I am really looking forward to learning more about what you guys were producing musically. Much appreciated! Cheers

    1. Thank you hotrodmike,
      I am pleased you find these rewarding.
      It was a laborious task pulling this together and one I enjoyed thoroughly. There are some omissions, I know, as I simply did not have some artist's material in a decent quality. As you know there are many compilation of Australian music out there, but I don't think many concentrate on an artists first singles.

      To receive your comments during the presentation of these set was encouraging and appreciated.

      Stay safe, enjoy the music and enjoy life.


  2. What a fantastic collection! Thanks, Butterboy!

    1. Hi Unknown,
      I truly hope you have been enjoying this set of over 700 songs by Australian artists (even though I made one mistake , earlier).


  3. Hi Butterboy,
    thanks for your fine compilations. But actually I am facing a download problem. Some downloads work and some others don't.
    The A-Z of Australien Rock did only work with part 11. Part 1-10 didn't work at all. It says error appears. The same happend with Rare Black Doo-Wop Sounds. On the other hand Part 1 and 3 downloaded well, but Part 2 did not. Any chance to solve the issue?
    Thank you und regards.

    1. Hi oldie Freak,
      Sorry to hear you are experiencing problems with some downloads.
      I have just reviewed the files you mention and all links work fine.
      I do not understand why some work and others do not. I had another visitor recently who suggested the same and the then realised the file had already downloaded for them. Very fast download.
      I cant explain why these are not working for you. I can only say from experience when visitors have such issues it is usually to do with their computer set up. Please try again.
      Further I just notice that the Krankenfiles site has been having some issues - There is a message on their home page.
      Warning. The datacenter, where our website store the files, had a serious accident. Therefore, one of our server "s3" is currently unavailable. We will try to restore all available files as fast as possible. Our other servers work continuously, so you can use our services further.
      We apologize for any inconvenience.
      This server may be effected. I am sure they will sort the issue out sooin, But I also don't feel it is to do with that as I can download the files.


  4. Thanks a lot for your prompt reply. It really seems to be a server issue. I just tried again the affected files and the following statement came up:

    File not available
    The datacenter, where our website store the files, had a serious accident. Therefore, one of our server "s3" is currently unavailable. We will try to restore all available files as fast as possible. Our other servers work continuously, so you can use our services further.
    We apologize for any inconvenience."

    I also just tried your actual upload from as March 12th, the download worked fine. The others, where I had trouble as mentioned first still don't work.
    So I will wait a while and try again in some days. I do not believe to have an issue with my computer set up since all other downloads work fine, except the ones from this s3 server.
    Thanks & Regards

  5. Hello and Sorry, it's me again. The part 1-9 (A-Q) of the "A-Z of Australian Rock" and also part 2 of "Rare Black Doo-wop Sounds" still do not work due to the known server s3 issue. Would there be any chance to reupload those files to another server that is working and available?
    Thank you and best regards.

    1. Hi Oldie Freak,
      What I will do is redo the Australian A-z all in one page . I will also redo the Part of Rare Black Doo Wop.

      Please allow a little time for these to be completed. I will let you know when they are completed in the comment here.


    2. Hi Butterboy,
      that's great. Thank you so much in advance. I will check the comments frequently.
      Best Regards.
