Thanks for the understanding most of you have had for the loss of my partner. The situation was unexpected and has not been easy, but I am better. I have been very busy since, with the aftermath and work, so I really haven't had the time or desire to post here. But I do check occasionally and will try to update requested links when I get a chance. No idea when or if I'll get to new posts, but you never know. He did support this blog, so maybe I'll get back to it. Thanks for your patience.

If you wish to download an album off of this blog and the link is dead, please request it either in the comments or the Chat Box and I will reupload it as soon as possible. :)

And don't forget to follow the Isle on Facebook and Twitter!

Meri D. Marshall - My Obsession (1985), Follow Me (1986) & On Y Vas (1987) TRIPLE POST!!!

Hey all! I'm moved and am ALMOST back in action. I've taken note of your votes and will post the most requested albums when I can find them in the many unpacked boxes I have. LOL To tide you over, I give you the only album by Meri D. Marshall, courtesy of the extreme generousity of Musicbeing. Thanks so much! I know nothing
about this woman other than she starred in some movie called Valet Girls. I've never heard this album till now either and it's perfect for this blog! It reminds me of a lost Laura Branigan or Bonnie Tyler album. Enjoy, and I promise I'll get back into the groove SOON!

**UPDATE - After a bit of surfing I discovered that Meri released two other albums in Japan as simply Meri D., one a 1986 re-release of this album titled Follow Me with the songs "Follow Me" added and "Watcha Gonna Do" omitted, and another entitled On Y Vas, which was also the name of the first single. Thanks to Consolecharlie for offering links to these two albums as well!! Thanks so much yet again, CC!

**UPDATE #2 - Thanks again to the indespensable Consolecharlie, Meri D. has been located!! She's alive and well and still singing, and has her own website HERE. Now known as Meredith Marshall, the native Texan continued to write and record with many well-known artists through the '90s and 00's (even recording a duet with Bruce Willis!) and she was part of roots-rock band Zelda. Delightfully she now lives in my homeland, Canada, in Montreal and is now working on a new album. Go to her website for more!!

And she now has her own Facebook page!! Please go there to keep up on everything Meri! She's a class act! :)

  2. I think she released Goodbye as a second single. If you look her up on Amazon.com, My Obcession and her movie are available as well as a 12-inch of Goodbye.

  4. Oops, it won't let me post the whole link, but it's called On Y Vas and is on a Japanese label, released just as Meri D.

  8. I can remember watching the video for "We Stand Alone" back in 1985 on one of the local music video shows in Dallas/Fort Worth. It was cute and colorful.

  9. Thanks for sharing the first two albums. I got "On Y Vas" awhile back on vinyl when I was trying to put together a complete soundtrack to "Valet Girls", which Meri acted in.

    Hey Nasty G, can't believe I didn't notice this earlier since I've had the albumj for ages but Brigitte Nielsen on her album "Everybody Tells A Story" covered My Obcession - it's not too bad but prefer Meri's version - she's got better pipes :)

  11. Let me quote you: "I give you the only album by Meri D. Marshall, courtesy of the extreme generousity of Musicbeing. Thanks so much!"

    Extreme generosity?? That's not the work of Musicbeing, because if you look inside you'll find a (to me) well-known msn address of "baba69100" in France, grandmaster of messy releases in the French funk scene.
    Same as here: everything encoded in 320 except for one piece that's only 128 ???
    Looks more like single files nicked off emule and other sources and copied together, than a decent rip.
    Sorry for bitching, but there ought to be ONE MOLD an album is done from, no mixed-bitrate crap cross-copied from everywhere.
