  1. Wow Wow Wow!
    And these are from Vinyl?!?!?!
    I just discovered your site when searching for Etta James Second Time Around. What can I say? A fantastic site, the quality of your rips are stunning, I've downloaded Etta and it sounds wonderful, downloaded Art Blakey which I'm listening to now, and also sounds incredible! Looking around your site, I have a funny feelin I'm gonna be here (and a regular) for a very long time. A big thank you for all your efforts!
    Too coooool,
