Thank you very much for this !!!

Thanks for these again. Looking forward to the 1st LP.
Do you happen to know A Modest Proposal? They also released an LP on Rosebud, Mekanik Kommando's label after they left Wereldrekord. Seems to be very rare. Don't know if it's any good though...

Only the Dancing Elephants songs appear to get downloaded, not the Snake is Queen album. Would be great if this could be fixed.

Thanks in advance :) !
