HI! Emiliano, you have the greatest oldies blog I've ever seen. Your compilations are great from start to finish. And what's even more incredible, I found a song on one of your comp. and It's a cover of my all-time favorite oldies:
Mister Murray - DOWN CAME THE RAIN (1965). I've been looking for this song for years, Bombalurina - DOWN CAME THE RAIN. You would make me the happiest man in the world if you could post the links for "ALMOST PERSUADED". Thanks in advance & thank you for the great music you share with us, you're doing a great job.

Hello! Again Emiliano. First let me say THANK YOU for your quick response. You should have seen me waiting for the software to decompress the file. I looked like a crazy man. Could not wait to hear "DOWN CAME THE RAIN" again. When the song started to play, I was in heaven. I even phoned two of my friends who love music like me to play them the song over the phone. Usually I prefer the original version but in this case, the bombalurina cover is better, for me anyway. I also discovered great songs I never heard before like Blondie "In The Flesh". You sure have great taste in music. And you know what??? YOU MADE ME THE HAPPIEST MAN IN THE WORLD:). Thanks a lot Emiliano & have a nice weekend:)
