You have a trojan in "Time is Tight"/part4. Not a prob, was going to wipe my HDD real soon, anyway--fixed it enough to run Firefox, but it wiped out IE6/8. I d/l all of the BT&MG I could find--[some of the links are dead], but all in all a great job, keep up the good work!!!!! You guys should have a links page to other sites that do "homage" to good music !!!!
Again, THANKS !!!!!

DJ Kool JB said...

The booker t set doc won't open for me. gives me a "can't decode" message. if its not too much trouble could there be straight links please?? my word converter is most likely messed up

Simon666 said...

Hi DJ Kool JB -
I didn't up that one, but I imagine that you just need to rename the file extension to ".rar" then decompress ....

DJ Kool JB said...

nah, didn't work for me. thanks for trying, guess i'll just miss out on that album :(

SelfScience said...

The Booker T Set (Stax 1969)
