    Thanks for another great post. Hoping to discover more Megatone tracks here at BTG. You are the best. Any possibility that Tantra – The Hills Of Katmandu (The Patrick Cowley Megamix) will appear here someday? All the best!

    you’re welcome Kookoo. Sorry don’t have the Tantra 12″ that is a pretty expensive and hard to find single.

    I’ve been searching for it for years, with no luck. It seems impossible to find. I have an mp3 I found online, but as you can imagine, the sound quality is not good. It is such an amazing track, you would think there would be a hi-quality version of it somewhere online. All the best.

    Hasta ahora no te he dado las gracias por esta magnífica página, pero al escuchar el tema “Right On Target” no me he resistido a agradecerlo. Precisamente el viernes pasado la estuve pinchando, junto a mi hermano, la versión editada en España.

    Gracias DjPaul.
