  • Smiling Islands - Robbie Patton/Stevie Nicks

    I'm looking for a download of this song, "Smiling Islands." It was done around 1983. It's consider as Robbie Patton's song, but most people remembers it as Stevie Nicks.

    http://www.nicksfix.com/smilingislands.htm

    I check itunes, amazon, mp3, and no one has it available as a download.

    There is Robbie Patton's LP for sale at $74. That's not what I'm looking for.

    Can any web or music expert help me find it?

    Thanks,

    The song is not available on any digital media... and hasn't been for years. The only album by Patton available on Amazon.com is "Distant Shores" originally released in 1980. I don't think it has the song on it. "Smiling Islands" was issued on a later Robbie Patton album called "Orders From Headquarters".

    The album is available on vinyl and "personal CD+R" at this place:

    At $42 it's expensive.

    If you are on Oahu, you may be better off just going to Jelly's to see if they have the vinyl version there, either on LP or 45. The song was released on both formats by Atlantic Records in 1982-83.
    I'm still here. Are you?

      Thanks!!!!

      I'm sure there is a local used record store here (AZ). Then again, that does not mean they would have it. I just found a used 45 on ebay. Came out expensive at $9 with shipping. It's the only way I get to hear it again.

      Oh...well.. I brought home lunch today at work. And home lunch again tomorrow to make this up.

          Thanks....

          I totally forgot that youtube has "music" too.

          That may have been enough as I can pay this 1000 times.

          As I wait for my 45 to arrive, now I got to make sure I still have the "plastic circle thing" to fit on my turntable.

            I forgot about it too and should have remembered to post it on my initial reply to this thread. May have saved you the $10. In all it is a good thing to get the record. There are ways to import analog sound into digital. I have the same record and used my Mac and Giffin's iMic device to convert the song to an MP3 file some years back.
