  4. ah, nevermind, i figured it out after perusing some comments on past posts... thanks for the uploads, can't wait to hear this old school freshness! keep it up, it seems that all the dope music blogs are dying out!! also, it is a day later than me wherever you are, so my comment came up as being posted tomorrow and i had a moment of panic thinking i'd written the wrong date on every document at work today!

  5. excuse my ignorance, but am i overlooking the down load link. I have used your site many times (and let me thank you for these rare posts too) and never had a problem unless the servers no longer carried the files. Just wondering. I would love to here these. Once again THANKS for keeping this stuff out there!

    1. Hi Mike, i uploaded the tapes to skydrive (a cloud service from microsoft, like dropbox). In the folder http://sdrv.ms/V0XkhK you will find all the tapes and you can download them. Don't think that it matters what kind of computer you have, mac also has the software to play the music files
