Hello everyone

first of all Thank you for following this blog which represents my modest contribution to the recognition and dissemination of the work of these many artists, a majority of which has now disappeared.

then a little point of information is needed as you can see I use "softeners" of links and I know that for some of you it is painful but unfortunately in this mercantile world we have nothing for nothing and the little that reports these shorteners and I already said it serves only to pay the servers (uptobox, Uloz etc ....)
at no time do I do this for personal gain !!

I also noticed that the videos are prone to shipping ads again it is not my fault, because I do not have the rights properties and do not want to spoil them. to enjoy youtube you must unfortunately go through it.

here is the blog is now more than 8 years of existence and I hope to continue it a few more years (finally if we can continue to have free internet!).

meanwhile keep the groove attitude...



Bonjour a tous

tout d'abord Merci de suivre ce blog qui represent ma modeste contribution a la reconnaissance et diffusion de l'oeuvre ces nombreux artistes dont une majorité est aujourd'hui disparue.

ensuite un petit point d'information s'impose comme vous pouvez le constater j'utilise des  " raccoucisseurs " de liens  et je sais que pour certains d'entre vous cela est pénible mais malheuresement dans ce monde mercantile on a  rien sans rien et le peu que rapporte ces raccourcisseurs et je l'ai déja dit ne sert qu' a payer les serveurs (uptobox,Uloz etc....)

a aucun moment je ne fait cela pour un profit personnel!!
j'ai remarqué egalement que les vidéos sont sujettes a embarquer des publicités   la encore ce n'est pas de mon fait , car je n'ai pas la propriétés des droits et ne veux en aucun cas les spolier. pour profiter de youtube il faut malheureusement en passer par la.

voila le blog a maintenant plus de 8ans d'existence  et j'espere continuer de l'ailmenter encore quelques  années (enfin si on peut continuer  a  avoir l'internet libre!!).

en attendant gardez "la groove attitude"
