PASSING ALONG A SMALL MESSAGE FROM BLOG FOUNDER JIM MUTANTSOUNDS

I was just in touch with Mutant Sounds blog founder Jim for the first time in ages regarding the new Rapidshare changes and he's asked me to pass along word that there's a reason for his extended absence from Mutant, as he's undergone dramatic surgery and has been the recuperating at length from his ordeal this last year. Here's hoping this is all behind him now and that he'll be able to contribute to Mutant again at some point in the future, but until then, feel free to offer him a small shout out and wish him a speedy recovery in the comment field.

Hang in there, Jim. I went through a bit of the slashing last year, my first time ever, and I never appreciated it until after the deed was done. Hurt Bad! Now my heart goes out to all who go under the knife. Best, beepee

Blissful Greetings,

Our sincere condolensces. We wish full recovery of health. Though we dance a tango of cops vs. robbers, music is not a concern when a person has well being is at stake. Good wishes and maybe some day we can see under more pleasant circumstances.

Ever since I discovered Mutant Sounds several years ago, it has been an essential resource for obscure jazz, psych, prog, dark-wave, minimal, etc. I hope that you know that what you have already given us is a fantastic gift in itself. Best wishes to you and your family!
