    That’s ok. Wish it wasn’t so expensive to post from Oz to US. I have a heap of 12″ that haven’t appeared on CD that I would love to send to you to work your magic on 🙂

    Never fear guys, d-Wizz to the rescue, and I will be sending the other two 12″ as part of the crate of Oz 12″ very soon. I’ve got multiple near mint 12″ of “Think of Me” which also happens to be my favourite of theirs.

    Thanks for putting this one up Paul, it’s not their best song which probably explains why I see mint copies of it for $1 at almost every record fair here. I don’t mind it, though my favourite album track which was not a single is the ballad “Drift Away (Don’t Let It)”
    d-wizz.com/junk to get the CD.

    Hello D-Wizz, I must say that certainly like attracts like, in that Paul puts out such positive energy and he is rewarded with much the same. I think that it’s so cool of you to be sending Paul these twelves of yours. I’m really, really excited to hear what may be coming done the line very, very soon. That Paul is so amazing in his execution of the perfect vinyl rip. I am really psyched at the potential of what we’ll be hearing. Thanks for your input as well. I so admire Paul’s commentators and the people who donate their hard earned cash to make this a Heaven on earth and in Cyberspace.

    Cheers!!

    Kudos Jeff, there’s tons of great material recorded Down Under that most of the rest of the world is oblivious to. It’s the aim of people like myself to end this ignorance. I have no doubt Paul will likewise be blown away by some of the stuff he gets from me.

    Australian material has proven to be the most difficult to find on CD and online, probably because of our relatively small population. Like most music these days, what little is released has usually been brickwalled (yuk!)

    I’m as excited as you to at the prospect of finally hearing some of my vinyl in near-CD quality! I’ve already ripped off 82 DVDs worth of vinyl, but Paul’s rips blow mine out of the water, so I’m really keen to hear the improvements.

    d-wizz.com/vinylmp3 if you’re interested. The samples will be missing for a few days while I upload them all back. info@d-wizz.com if you want to know more.

    Would you be willing to tell us what it is that you are sending Paul or is it a secret.

    d-Wizz Reply:

    Pretty much the entire Machinations discography will be in the crate I send to Paul. Happy times coming!
