I'm looking through your archives, and you've got some GREAT music on this blog. As for the stuff that was on Mediafire and Megaupload, do you know where one could find it again? It seems like it'd be a time-consuming task to reupload all of them, but if they can't be found anywhere else, would you be willing to reupload any particular albums if you're asked?

 
At Tuesday, 23 April, 2013, Blogger Emiliano M. A. said...

I will keep on loading and re-loading certain old and new compilations for free, when? who knows! And I won't upload others for free anymore. I like money like everyone and I need it more than most of them. Anyway swapping music & intersting trades are always welcome. Sorry and thanks for your interest and words!
