  1. Leon Haywood, Hank Jacobs, Packers, manque plus grand chose pour revenir à l'époque du Groove à Ostende. Le Bobby Moore "searching for my love", le Ray Bryant "Cold Turkey" peut être. Tu fais des heureux. Un grand merçi.

  2. sois patient cela arrive j'en ai encore beaucoup a poster.....

  3. Excellent album de Leon Haywood et Super blog que je viens de decouvrir, rien que du bon! Bonne continuation!

  4. Thanks a lot & best wishes for the new year.
