  1. Beautiful...thanx! Hope you don't mind that I have linked to this, if you don't want me to more than happy to remove.

  2. Hi,
    I've just now discovered your wonderful blog & am so looking forward to listening to every one of your 'mixtapes'. However- forgive me for asking this...but would you hate the idea of including a song-by-song zipfile option along with the mp3 download? I would love to isolate some of the tracks & not have to experience them in 'mixtape' form every single time I want to hear that song, you know? A lot of my favorite r&b sites offer that option, which I always appreciate. Thanks for listening & thanks for the music!

  3. Hi...for some reason yr comment is not allowing itself to be published at my end...Thanx for allowing me to repost. Stan is my friend who alerted me to this post...

  4. @Steve Thanks for commenting. I haven't had time to archive zip files for these lately. I might do so in the future, though. I hope you enjoy them!

  5. @Mona Ah, I see. Tell Stan I said 'Hi.'
