steamsounds recordings  
40 years of steamsounds
To mark the final update to the steamsounds website before it goes static I set myself the almost impossible task of picking a single track from my collection for each year since I started recording. To say that the choice has been difficult is an understatement as I had over 4300 recordings to choose from and, if I ever decide to, I'll need to set aside over 350 hours to listen to them all.
Although I won't be regularly updating the site from now on, I do expect to be able to continue making recordings for a while longer so, to make the caption above accurate, I'll be back at some point to add something from 2017 to make it the full 40 years.
Until I do that, here are 39 recordings; one from each year starting with one of my earliest from 1978...
