    Hey Paul,
    I wonder if you’d be interested in a donation of a few Grace Jones 12” singles I recently acquired. I was going to try to rip and digitize them myself, but it was an epic fail with the equipment I have–And you do such an excellent job with all your rips, just thought I’d make the offer. The ones I have are ‘Love Is The Drug – Paul Smykle Remix’ ‘Cry Now, Laugh Later/Nipple To The Bottle – Dubs’ and a DMC compilation with the Sanny X remix of ‘La Vie En Rose’ –Please let me know if you’re interested.

    Hey Paul — We’d love to hear a clean copy of the “Feel Up” 12″ mix (never released on CD). Since you’re in a Grace Jones mood…Thanks much!

  11. Jean-Michel Says:

    I Think maybe it’s Alan Couthlard done this megamix for DMC

  12. Disco D Says:

    HI Paul, can you check to see if these links are still working. It’s just timing out for me (on FLAC). Much appreciated, Thank you 🙂

  13. Disco D Says:

    Hi Paul. It’s working now. Must be the server. Fleetwood Mac Big Love FLAC is not working though. Could you possibly fix this, please? Thank you 🙂

  14. Disco D Says:

    Haha… Big Love is working now too. Sorry 🙂
