Lost links & Re-ups

On any post, if the link is no longer good, leave a comment if you want the music re-uploaded. As long as I still have the file, or the record, cd, or cassette to re-rip, I will gladly accommodate in a timely manner all such requests.

Xmas - No Wave, Musick Slave

This one is for Ib, the truest Sibling of them all. This is not Mechanical Flattery, but it’s definitely the best Lunch.

Original analog master tapes digitally transfered at 24 bits & mastered to 16 bits. Dedicated to the memory of Anya Phillips, Bradley Field, Patrick Geoffrois, George Scott, & Summer Crane.
