  1. Wow! What a comp. Many thanks, BB!

    1. Glad you like this one too, pmac.
      A lot of great singers and songs.

  2. Hi BB showing me this when i try to download ??
    Oops! An Error Occurred
    The server returned a "500 Internal Server Error".

    Something is broken. Please let us know what you were doing when this error occurred. We will fix it as soon as possible. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

    1. Hi Jimbo100.
      Yes, Krakenfiles server error.
      Now fixed.

  3. This a great collection, but the link gives me "The server returned a "500 Internal Server Error"."

  4. KrakenFiles had a server problem today. They say the unstable server has been fixed.
    But... unfortunately they lost the data uploaded and the user accounts created between 2023-01-23 2:30 - 2023-01-23 12:30.
    In other words, your files uploaded on KF on Monday can now not be downloaded, in certain parts of the world :-(
    Cheers, Andy

    1. Thanks for the feedback, Andy T.

  5. Yes I got the 500 Internal Server Error message too, hopefully the link gets replaced later today, this looks like a real nice collection.

  6. I guess Kraken was acting like a Diva. Thanks for the music BB.
