wow, there must be something in the air today - 5 posts from 3 contributors, full blast!

thanks for this very focused triple-post, reservatory!! the cover art for them are pure jewels for the eye, and i'm sure the music is just as thrilling! and it's quite some work to rip 3 lp's, scan the covers and upload them! all for the sake of generosity... :D

Something in the air, Lucky. One of these had been sitting ready to go for some time, there were three, inexplicable forces I couldn't fight... Actually it's all about those theoretical dollars.

From the Department of Internet Money (DIM), of course. I intend to retire very comfortably.

Reservatory, Thanks for all the Syliphone love. I got 10 and 11 to DL fine, but this one won't be found on the server. Is this at my end, or is it something you can address at your end? In any case, thanks for the extraordinary music!

I've redone the link, which seems to be working now...
