There And Back Again Lane (1995)

Post #1000

One thousandth post! And the final one. I'll write more about that later, but this blog as it is right now, it's over. Finding what to post to end this blog was a no-brainer. It's not very original and I'm pretty sure most people visiting this blog already have a copy in some form or another, but rarely do record labels have such an influence and devoted following.

Scans of the booklet are enclosed as well as the label's last two newsletters (Sarah 100 & Sarah Obituary). And the record of course. 75 minutes and 20 seconds of pure indie-pop goodness. It's impossible to pick a track as they're all equally good and they all fit nicely together, but these days if I had to pry one apart, I guess it would be All Of A Tremble by St. Christopher. And yes, you are allowed to be sensitive and shed a tear (for the loss of Sarah Records, not of this blog) after Drown's final whistle...

  1. Congrats om making the thousand, sorry that that's it. You posted some good stuff here that I've not found elsewhere so you'll be missed. Hopefully you'll be inspired to come back under a different guise some day.

    1. Thanks :) I already have some ideas but nothing definite yet. I need some time to think about it.

  2. indeed :)
    off the top of my head: elevate, pure morning etc.
    great music and i feel i should mention that the blog itself was really nicely laid out and easy on the eyes. all in all, great to visit!

    cheers for everything!



    1. The blog's layout is probably my only creative input here, so I'm really glad someone noticed! Thank you :)

  3. thank you for everything, buddy, and all the best :)

  4. All good things must come to an end. I understand. I'm ending my blog, as well. A-Sides, B-Sides, and Seasides and pyrolysebred can share a cab to that little blog in the sky. You did excellent work. I appreciate that you always had great stories to accompany your posts. You will be sorely missed. Truly, truly, truly.

  5. Aya! My favorite destination…out of the (truly) 60 or so music blogs I frequent.


    : )

    1. You now have a bit more time to yourself! ;-)

  6. Thank you for the posts! Hope you return :P

  7. thank you! blogland won't be the same without you. :(

  8. thank you from the bottom of my heart

  9. echo the robster - having got to 1000 posts and then ended myself know how hard it is to keep going to hats off for getting this far.. Got this cd when it came out - love th ehit parade and sugargliders tracks

    1. It is time consuming, so unless you do it for a living, you better have a lot of free time to keep it going.

      I agree with the Hit Parade / Sugargliders tracks. 6 O'Clock is Rosary was also among my favourite tracks.

  10. Sorry to hear of the blog ending. :( Our musical tastes are so similar. It was nice to come here and be taken back to music that use to matter to me more earlier in life. I've gotten lots of music from you. Thank you. Hopefully you do reincarnate in some matter. Cheers.

  11. A big huge thanks for all shares. We will miss you.
