Muchas gracias Alfonso, no era necesario que te crearas una cuenta en Google, y no lo digo porque yo no la tengo, ni porque sepas cómo contactar conmigo, sino porque sé de tu interés, y también de tu generosidad. De todas formas me alegran de veras tus palabras, y espero seguir con "mi labor" en la medida de mis posibilidades. Un abrazo.

Thanks everybody else - Muchas gracias también a los demás.


p.d, Rock 'n' Roll IS GOOD FOR THE SOUL ;)

I have followed your site for some considerable time now, and have noticed how much time and effort you have devoted into your compilations.
I have also benefited by being able to listen to some of them, and I thank you very much for making them available.
I can understand the frustration of those that steal from you, all I can sya is that, the music you compile and make available, brings many hours of listening pleasure to many of us.
And I wish you well for now and the future. Many many thanks - MikeJ

Emiliano, these are great! Thanks. I was wondering also, where is the pic from that is above the "Good for the Soul" list? Is that from an Archie cartoon?

Yes it is from Archie cartoon, found on and picked from the net. Thanks, warm regards.
