    Yeah, another re-rip! Just great Paul. Another one I can tick off my list. Hopefully you’ll re-rip Streisand’s Promises very soon too…

    Thank you so much for this Wang Chung.

    Always loved this song and the ‘Insomnia’ mix is a pretty good extended version. One of their best songs, in my book. Thanks!

    Dear Paul,

    Upon returning from vacation, I could almost cry with happiness. Thanks for these re-rips Paul. I mean, I was pretty much computer-less while visiting my Mom, so I’m just checking on my new e-mails. What a treasure trove you’ve provided us. I humbly thank you so much for your tireless work. I’m very excited. Thanks to you, Wang Chung’s 12-inch discography is almost complete. I hope maybe one day you’ll be able to find their “Don’t Be My Enemy” twelve, as that mix is wonderful.

    Anyway, I love what you provide for us. You’re the tops Paul.
