About the Reifenstahl upload : the last 2 songs are the same song ...and the order of songs is confusing.
I checked on the net the LP track listing which is like this (12 tracks) :

One Two / Die Wunderwaffe / Der Wüstenfuchs / Epilog / Space Invaders / Zerbröckelnde Gesellschaftsstrukturen / Bonanza / Intellektuell / Reumütige Raumfahrer / Tritt bitte nicht auf mein Glas / Je T'Air / Ich denke oft an dich

Can you fix this little confusion ?
Anyway, I must thank you for the music you are giving us.

There are some *nice* tracks here, but also a lot of bad ones. Cannot understand why you like this one so much - must be more memories than quality, could that be? Not to offend you or something, but often with this old stuff one does not know: do I like it so much only because I know it? Or would I like it the same if I heard it today for the first time? : )

mutantsounds said...

especially in this compilation there no bad tracks...concerning what each one likes ...well,haven't you ever heard of different tastes?

Could you repost it? I got 2nd LP (Another Thing...), so it would be nice to know the 1st too. Thx.

Looks like this link has gone dead, my friend. I know it's rather an old link but it has taken a long time for me to work through your site. If it's possible to reupload, I'd much appreciate. Either way, THANKS -- A.Y.
