First of all I'm very thankful to all the members who take the time to upload music and link it to this blog.

But as a friendly suggestion, why not use a file hosting service that doesn't require 90 minute waits between downloads (as rapidshare does)?

Especially if the album is split into multiple discs/records.

Divshare.com or Zshare.net are two nice alternatives.

i've had some problems with your suggested hosts. i've heard of rapidshare being slow but i have not experienced that myself. thanks for the suggestion and i will keep it in mind.

Hi, thanks for this post. I am actualy working at the NFB and we've been looking for this vinyl for a long time now... It's lost somewhere in NFB's oblivion...

You're saying that it is avalaible on cd, but I can't get a hold on it.
