Waking Up rip?

Post by dave202 »

Does anyone have a good quality rip of 'Waking Up'? I tried playing my vinyl copy and it's pretty knackered and am wary about looking for another copy. I looked for a cd, but couldn't see a copy available.

I bought it when it came out originally, though I haven't played it in a long time.

There seem to be a ton of copies on Discogs, if that helps -- these are all vinyl, didn't find any on CD:

And here's a vinyl copy on Amazon Germany:
https://www.amazon.com/Topper-Headon-Wa ... B071DW27GY

Ironic to see some of these going for $30-plus, as -- how shall we say this tactfully -- Topper wasn't a terribly hot commodity after his exit from the Clash. Not that his record label didn't try, though. One of the 12-inches that I bought -- and then, taped, and re-sold -- had the blurb, "EXTENDED MIXES AND EXTRA TRACKS!" splashed across the front cover. So it wasn't as if they weren't going the extra mile (or kilometer, shall we say).

If you're pinching pennies, this site has a working Mediafire link you can access:

Hope this helps in your quest!

Thanks. Yes, looks like it'll be a new vinyl copy I'll be buying.
