    I’m having problem downloading Vol.1 on sendspace…please help. This one is too excellent!

    • Deirdre S says:

      I downloaded a zip file of Vol. 1 from sendspace and could not download either. Today I went back on and noticed they have taken the download option off of sendspace and left a note saying they are trying to fix something…

      So I am waiting to be able to download Vol. 1 as well!


      What… Great… Music!

      yeah love this….love a hook up with Volume 1 if it can be tracked down…cant seem to find it although there are references to it!! ATFA are magic! Simon is one of the key players/producers from ATFA I presumed!!

    Lovely selection. There is an error that I know of though:

    Yatouloveras – UCAS Band de Sedhiou – Senegal is in fact:
    Regret (Mome Boufigneuve) – UCAS Band de Sedhiou – Senegal
    I have this record and so am sure of this.
