All the VA - Hillbillies In Hell, Country Music's Tormented Testament links are still active.
Please use a VPN to download these files . I understand this works for those who cant use Zippyshare in their countries. The Opera Browser has a built in VPN and seems to be a good solution. Good luck.
PS Happy Birthday for April.

When you get the time, could you please re-post this as it has been deleted. As stated above, great music. It's a shame that they (Kraken) couldn't hold them longer. Thank youReplyDelete

Not sure if there is an alternate way of doing this any better to get a message to you. I do not have a comment related to this selection [ February Charts 60 Years Ago ]. The compilation that I am interested in is "VA - Gone But Not Forgotten Vol.01 Soul and Blues Artists (A Butterboy Compilation) CD1+CD2 " and on that particular page there is no Comments link. As the posting is rather old, (Friday, November 9, 2018), it has expired and the links taken down. This appears to be a magnificent compilation containing great songs and artists, I am hopeful that you would please re-post it. Thank you.ReplyDelete
The link has been renewed.
Here is a link for your convenience.
VA - Gone But Not Forgotten Vol.01 Soul and Blues Artists (A Butterboy Compilation) CD1+CD2
Have you done January 1961 or have I missed it? I'd very much appreciate it if you have and you could re-post it please.
I didn't do a January 1961 post. The idea only came to me in February. I will do it at some stage as a missing link to the series.
That's ok - I've only just found the series. I thought that you'd closed the blog until I checked on something last week. So pleased to have all your music again. Best wishes, PaulReplyDelete
There is a lot to find in the sidebar links.
