Boogiewoody @ Joan Selects, thank you for these stacks of great 45s.






Thank you for using Mega.

Kostrow said...

Thanks of lot! This is Brilliant! Do i have a chance to listen it at good quality ?(not 128 kb ,please!)

boogiewoody said...

Sorry Kostrow, that's all there is. There are no better quality rips for these tracks. I usually put on the inbuilt equaliser on my media player to boost the sound when I'm playing mp3s especially lower quality ones. My laptop is connected to my HiFi amp so I find that the sound quality is usually OK for general listening.

Thanks! I tried to look for same tracks in better quality but it is no use (nothing found)...
