  1. Hi roby

    It's a small world

    Did you get this as a torrent? Only reason i ask is because of the title you gave it "Lost songs reseed" thats the name i gave the file a couple of years ago when i stuck it up on pirate bay(which i no longer use). My first attempt was corrupt hence the "reseed"

  2. i know this album, but , fantastic is your atitude...when divide your music.

    god bless you.

  3. yes, Colin, i downloaded it with bit torrent some years ago, and i don't change the name (strangely, because generally i rename all the downloaded files).
    It's a small small world, dear Colin.


  4. Thanks very much for this, Roby!

  5. I cleaned these songs up with Sound Forge and they sound a lot better. The volume levels and audio is much more consistent (still not perfect, but better). Over the next few weeks I'll post them on YouTube so you can hear the improved audio quality.

    Thanks for making this available!

  6. Great Heep boots here!
    Thank yu very much!
