    Finally! A rip that is not clipping. I have a copy frome somewhere else and it clips really bad. Keep up the awesome work Paul 😀

    Thanks Neil. Clipping is something that I am very particular about. That’s why remastered CD’s sometimes are so terrible because they try to push the volume limits way to high because they think it sounds better. In reality it is destroying the music. Glad you like the rip.

    I too really appreciate it. I think I requested this a few months ago after coming across the rip I have and noticing it was really in bad shape.

    I hope “Love come down” by Evelyn Champagne King is in line for a future post.

    Thanks so much.

    Hi Matracas you and someone else both requsted this one. Sorry it took so long. I havn’t posted Evlyn because her CD was just re-issued with the mixes as bonus tracks. I need to check out the so called “remaster” to see what is ounds like then I will decide.

    For me, my favourite Julian Lennon single is Saltwater. Totally beautiful! A sequel to John Lennon’s Imagine.

    I’d say it’s Great Minds Think Alike!!!
    Now that we’re pampered with two excellent rips of this single, really shows how blessed and fortunate we are to have BTG and FWV!
    Thanks Paul and Richie!

    Many thanks for this! I’m a huge Julian Lennon fan and it’s awesome to see this great single up for download. I recently lost all my music in a house fire so it’s going to be a HUGE job putting it all back together and your blog is where I came first as you’ve got so many great rarities here. You’re my complete and total hero, Paul. 🙂

    Thanks again!
