    What a lovely Friday morning surprise. Thanks Paul!

    Paul, would be it be possible to upload tracks separately in future? E.g. the b-sides of this release are already available on CD and I have those, it’s just the a-side that is not available, so I’d prefer to just download that. With the size of FLACS, it would help a lot. However, I also appreciate that if you do want all the tracks, a single upload is easier, so it’s nice to have both options. Thanks.

    Hi Andy
    I am sorry but I only upload each 12″ or CD as one single archive file this process alreadt takes a lot of my time to upload and it take more time to upload in both an individual tracks and a single archive. This is the way that I have been doing this since starting Burning The Ground 2007. I realize that some of the tracks are on CD but there are some people out there including myself who prefer the sound of vinyl especially in lossless format. I did not always offer flac and if the file sizes are too large I could revert back to only sharing mp3.

    OK, Paul, that’s fair enough. Thanks for taking the time to reply.
