    Hey Paul!! I’m very excited about today’s posting. Thanks a lot. Also, I hope things are going fine for your Mom and you. Again, please take all the time you need to get things done for her because the music can wait. You’re the best!

    Thank you Jeff. My mom is doing well. We found out she has glaucoma in both eyes so she had laser surgery done on her left eye on Tuesday and will go back next week to have the right eye done and she is on special eye drops. She will also need katarak surgery in the near future.

    YES! YES! YES!!
    Great to have these keep on coming. Loving it.
    Great to hear mom is doing better. My wife recently had eye surgery, as did my dog for cataracts (yes, I know, my dog). It’s amazing how far all these surgeries have evolved. Very comforting as we all get older. Well, at least I do.
    Be well.
    And, thanks again.

    Hi, Paul, I just wanted to express my gratitude for this incredible run of Associates 12 inchers, particularly those with Alan Rankine. Incredibly adventurous and uncompromising pop music, and your hi res transfers are a pleasure to listen to. Would love to listen to your recordings of all of the singles (and b-sides, of course) the lads released on Situation 2! Thank you very much for such rare treats at such high quality. All the best to you, mate!
