Truly amazing blog ya got here, Monsieur Melanchthon!
I happen to be assembling a Shorty Rogers discography of sorts, kinda compiling album after album simply 'cause his work captivates me (quite rare to find, by the way). So I just stumbled upon the above gorgeous contribution by Grumpy and... you know, I cannot thank both of you guys enough!
For anyone interested, I've prepared the following (listed by recording date, not release):

Classic Period Discography:

01. Modern Sounds (Capitol, 1951)

04. The Wild One [EP] (RCA, 1953)
05. Shorty Rogers Courts the Count (RCA, 1954)
06. East Coast–West Coast Scene (RCA, 1954)
07. Collaboration [w/ André Previn] (RCA, 1954)
08. The Swinging Mr. Rogers (Atlantic, 1955)

12. Clickin' with Clax (Atlantic, 1956) [UK only]

14. Wherever the Five Winds Blow (RCA, 1956)

16. Portrait of Shorty (RCA, 1957)
17. Gigi in Jazz (RCA, 1958)
18. Afro-Cuban Influence (RCA, 1958)
19. St. Louis Blues [w/ Eartha Kitt] (RCA, 1958)
20. Chances Are It Swings (RCA, 1958)
21. The Wizard of Oz and Other Harold Arlen Songs (RCA, 1959)
22. Shorty Rogers Meets Tarzan (MGM, 1959)
23. The Swingin' Nutcracker (RCA, 1960)
24. An Invisible Orchard (RCA, 1961)
25. Quintet with Jeri Southern (Studio West, 1962)
26. Bossa Nova (Reprise, 1962)

& A brief selection as sideman/arranger/composer:
Stan Kenton - The Innovations Orchestra (Capitol, 1950-51)
Howard Rumsey's Lighthouse All-Stars - Sunday Jazz á la Lighthouse, Vols. 1 & 2 (Contemporary, 1952-53)

Pérez Prado & Shorty Rogers - Voodoo Suite plus Six All-Time Greats (RCA, 1955)
Betty Bennett - Nobody Else But Me: Sings the Arrangements of Shorty Rogers & André Previn (Atlantic, 1955)

Is there a chance anyone could post any of the following? (whatever format is welcome!):
- Shorty Rogers and His Giants (just those extra 4 tracks)
- The Big Shorty Rogers Express (same as above)
- Portrait of Shorty
- Bossa Nova
- Jazz Waltz

I provide links to a few items I found out there in blogosphere

Again, a million thanks to everyone involved!!!

grumpy said...

Rafaelian: an interesting list and I'm pleased to see most are now available.

Portrait of Shorty is available in flac from LP at 'the jazzman' (he specifically asks for no links to his blog).

'Bossa Nova' and 'Jazz Waltz' have been paired on a Collectables CD, which unfortunately is an expensive import in my part of the world.

Thank you for the links to the Eartha Kitt and Perez Prado, though I believe the correct etiquette is to post links to the site page and not to reproduce the download links?? However I must admit, in this instance, I'm glad that you didn't as 'con1' is now a private blog and inaccessible to me!

I'll add my request for the four missing tracks from July 56, issued on 'The Big Shorty Express' - can anyone help?

Rafaelian said...

Grumpy, I appreciate your quick reply.

I guess I shouldn't have reproduce any links not uploaded by me, but I'm also glad you benefitted from my 'incorrect etiquette'.

By the way, is 'the jazzman' a blog? 'Cos I couldn't find any site with such a name...

johnem said...

Hello dear friends! What a blog (and what a section too)! I thank you all for your contributions, especially for the Shorty Rogers’ series. By the way, does anyone have Joe Wilder’s “Softly with feeling” and Clark Terry’s “Color changes”? Thanks in advance. And keep surprising us!

Rafaelian said...

Grumpy: thanks for the tip, pal!

I just found an addition to our list:

Elmer Bernstein - The Man with the Golden Arm (Decca, 1955) [jazz arrangements by Shorty Rogers]

You can find it (along with a bunch of soundtracks) here:

Hi Mel - This is just to record a note of thanks for your wonderful blog. I download occasionally but love to visit frequently to catch up on new artists & read the comprehensive notes you provide. Always something new & interesting.

All the best for 2010

grumpy said...

We now seem to have all of the Contemporay recordings of Rumsey available on this blog!
Melanchthon has posted several albums by Marty Paich, including recently, my favourite with Art Pepper. I thought I’d offer:

http://rapidshare.com/files/320776095/Paich__Marty_-_The_Picasso_Of_Big_Band_Jazz__1957___flac_.part1.rar
http://rapidshare.com/files/320809777/Paich__Marty_-_The_Picasso_Of_Big_Band_Jazz__1957___flac_.part2.rar

Paich is renowned for his work with singers. Steve Voce, writing many years ago in Jazz Journal, described the collaborations with Mel Tormé as ‘distilled jazz’. Well I wouldn’t claim this is jazz, just an exquisite example of a superb singer and great arranger working together!

swingingduck said...

Grumpy,
Thank you very much for Prelude To A Kiss.
I have somewhere MP3 version of it and this is very important upgrade for me.
Big Torme & Paich fun.
Much appreciated.

Thad said...

Not a contribution (yet), but I wanted to thank for you for having so much great music available. It's great to have FLAC backups for my vinyl. Thanks for all of your time and effort!

Just in case anyone missed this elsewhere. To complement Mel's recent Jimmy Rowles' post, a rarity only reissued in Japan:

Kenton Presents: Bob Cooper, Bill Holman, Frank Rosolino
(Mosaic MD4-185)

In the mid-1950s, Stan Kenton cajoled or pressured Capitol Records into recording some of the best of his sidemen as leaders. The few "Kenton Presents" albums released before Capitol killed the series included superb sessions by Bill Holman and Frank Rosolino and good ones by Bob Cooper. This Mosaic set brings them together with 12 previously unissued tracks from Holman and Rosolino. It also resurrects Holman's Great Big Band album of 1960 and the instrumental tracks from the Cooper-June Christy show-tune album, Do-Re-Mi. ~ By Doug Ramsey [October 1999]

Je reposte ici, vu que je viens de comprendre que j'aurais plus de chance d'être lu ici !
.........................

Merci beaucoup pour tout Melanchton. Je pille ton blog depuis des mois et suis toujours impressionné par la qualité de ce que j'y trouve (pour qui aime le jazz des années 50 à 70).
Je viens juste de comprendre que je pouvais laisser un mail sans être obligé de m'inscrire à un bidule ou à un autre : laisser le moins de moi possible sur Internet.
Voilà donc pour des remerciements tardifs, mais très sincères.

mr. memory said...

Hi Mel,
I have recently discovered your blog which is absolutely amazing. Thank you so much for your great work. By the way in several jazz/classical flac files there is a quite disturbing hiss: is that an issue with the orignal recording or maybe the codec/player I am using?

rje said...

@grumpy - thanks for the dempsey wright. never heard of him. good to remember a forgotten guitarist, can't wait to listen.

Anonymous said...

Thank You Melanchton for all the great shares, especially the Savoy reissues! And speaking of Savoy, big thanks to grumpy for the mp3s of Kenny Clarke's Klook's Clique! Klook is my fav. drummer and i love anything with him on it.

Speaking of that, does anybody have to share these rare ones: Ernie Wilkins/Kenny Clarke Septet on Savoy (this has a drum solo version of Now's The Time which i've always wanted to hear but could never find), and also Johnny Griffin's Night Lady which i've heard is a very rare one as well (only ever heard the title track on WKCR once!)
Thanks for all the great classic jazz i now can enjoy due to this great blog!!!! -dandor

Bhowani said...

@Grumpy : Thank you for the Klook's clique...even though I had another version elsewhere (where ? I don't remember...

but now I would like to propose here "100 % Proof" by Tubby Hayes...in flac with high res scans...is it still the right place here ? Mel ?

Melanchthon said...

The right man at the right place for the right post. You're welcome, Bhowani...

Neal said...

Hi Mel,

Glad to see your blog was only on temporary hiatus yesterday! I'm trying to get some lp transfers uploaded, but here's one: Teddy Charles Tentet album, from a nice new 180g pressing, which I think sounds better than the cd reissue. Both 16bit and 24 bit Flacs in this folder:

http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=8be54655e00c1d39ab1eab3e9fa335caf0f522c07ef4095e

I think I'm not going to use Mediafire in the future, it's getting very prone to upload errors, so please let me know if any files need re-upping!

Cheers!

Anonymous said...

Neal, Thanks for the Teddy Charles Tentet from your new LP pressing--sounds very good! (Didn't even detect any vinyl noise!) Definitely sounds better than the horrible Atlantic(?) cd pressing. It's one of my favorite recordings, and those early cd technology Atlantic jazz reissues were some of the worst sounding cds i've ever heard. really bad. The only thing that comes close to those in terrible sound quality was the abomination that was Columbia's cd reissue of the 'Jazz Messengers' self-titled classic '56 album with Blakey, Mobley, Byrd, Silver & Watkins. All the extensive bonus tracks were fantastic but the sound was flat & horrific! All the warmth of the original mono record was destroyed!
Anyway, your LP transfer sounds great, and the Mediafire files worked fine! thanks, dandor

johnem said...

The sound is terrific in the 24/96 version, but file 3 of the RAR archive is corrupt. And I can't repair track 5. Can you do something for this? Thanks in advance.

Tibau said...

Teddy Charles. A Great album. I was looking for this album a long time ago. Thanks.

Neal said...

@johnem, and anyone else having trouble with the 24bit version of the Teddy Charles Tentet, here's an alternate (same files as the Mediafire...could you let me know which of the 4 parts showed the error, rather than the track #s? thanks!)

Hello!
You may probably be very curious to know how one can manage to receive high yields on investments.
There is no need to invest much at first.
You may begin earning with a sum that usually goes
on daily food, that's 20-100 dollars.
I have been participating in one project for several years,
and I'm ready to let you know my secrets at my blog.

Please visit blog and send me private message to get the info.

P.S. I make 1000-2000 per day now.

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my web site to get additional info.

re.Grumpy's request for Dick Morrissey's cd of "Storm Warning".
A friend of mine (Paul Walker) and myself obtained permission from Mercury to issue a limited edition of this recordng in order to raise funds for Dick when he was suffering from cancer and could not play very often.If Grumpy would like a copy of the cd (which he can the download onto your site-as I do not know how to)
if you can give me contact details I will send him one free. I am sure Dick would have been delighted to know that people still enjoyed his music
Thanks very much for a great site..

@Rowgatien,
Many thanks for the Pettiford and Jones!

I've noticed the the Pettiford hasn't been posted on the Bethlehem blog, you should share it there; are you a member? If not email
yourfeetstoobig@gmail.com
and ask to join.
And you're an admirer of West Coast jazz so while you're at it ask to join the Pacific Jazz blog (same email).

Thank you Rowgatien for the Pettifords!

A request and a contribution:

I've been trying to locate the Duke Pearson Mosaic Select but it seems oop and only available at exorbitant prices. Can anyone share a preferably lossless copy?

Something I've recently uploaded that is sadly no longer in catalogue.

HANK MOBLEY - HI VOLTAGE (Blue Note BST 84273)

Blue Mitchell (t) Jackie McLean (as) Hank Mobley (ts) John Hicks (p) Bob Cranshaw (b) Billy Higgins (d)
Rudy Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, NJ, October 9, 1967

01 - High Voltage
02 - Two And One
03 - No More Goodbyes
04 - Advance Notice
05 - Bossa De Luxe
06 - Flirty Gert

Review ~ The Wire Issue 24, February 1986:-
Sure it's a formula. First listening to Hi Voltage might well cause the eyes to roll back like cherries on a one-armed bandit, the mind to un-couple from its locomotive body, un-oiled limbs to creak. It has that sound: The Blue Note Machine; the great record label that never recovered from its hit record.
But then after a while you start to hear the music bound into the fabric of these fierce, corny structures and the pleasure imitates the ordering of a fine meal: you know what sort of food you're going to eat, but dare you really predict its nuances of taste?
But let's not get too precious about this.
Higgins swishes along like a breeze, as ever, while everyone else rides his cymbals in breezy, friendly fashion. All except McLean, who leaks battery acid and contention in equal proportion to Mobley's bell-like nobility. This is Jackie at his lemon-sucking, l-can-do-this-sorta-thing-in-my-sleep-but-I'm-fucked-if-I'm-going-to-deal-in-half-measures best, mixing his patented droopy phrasing with sizeable dollops of post-Parker psychorama till water starts from the eyes (just check the fabulous "Bossa De Luxe"). Mitchell is suave, while Hicks succeeds in being casually weird: not very funky, but not lacking in imagination either.
Of course this is formula stuff: if you want Hank's real creative oeuvre then listen to Soul Station. But if, like me, you also enjoy the disciplined stretching of familiar forms, then Hi Voltage is a simple pleasure. If it tastes good, I'll eat it. ~ Nick Coleman

Hank Mobley - A Slice Of The Top (Blue Note [UK] LBR 1028)
[US issue - LT 995; Japanese issue GXK 8177; CD reissue B1 33582]

Lee Morgan (tp) Kiane Zawadi (euph) Howard Johnson (tu) James Spaulding (as, fl) Hank Mobley (ts, arr) McCoy Tyner (p) Bob Cranshaw (b) Billy Higgins (d) Duke Pearson (arr)
Rudy Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, NJ, March 18, 1966

01 - Hank's Other Bag
02 - There's A Lull In My Life
03 - Cute 'n Pretty
04 - A Touch Of Blue
05 - A Slice Of The Top

Review ~ Jazz Journal Vol 34, No7, July 1981:
Hank Mobley's 'A Slice Of The Top' (am sure that should be 'Off!') is most rewarding. From March 18, 1966 it's an octet date with, aside from A Lull In My
Life, four Mobley originals arranged by Duke Pearson, who makes full use of the timbral variations is an ensemble including a euphonium (Kiane Zawadi aka. Bernard McKinney) and tuba (Howard Johnson). The middle and top instruments (also the soloists) are Mobley himself, his beautifully rounded tone and highly developed rhythmic sense outstanding, James Spaulding, McLean based and pushing to the 'outside', and, yes, Lee Morgan a-fire if a little erratic. McCoy Tyner's strong presence and flowing invention integrates beautifully into the deeply swinging team of Reggie Workman and, of course, Billy Higgins. The ensemble punctuates and comments periodically but could perhaps have been given a little more to do. ~ Brian Davis

Ripped from the UK vinyl with audacity. Scans including Japanese LP cover.

ramson said...

2lp's on 1 cd:
The 4 Most + Bob Stewart - Sing The Arrangements Of Joe Derise + Sings With The Mat Mathews' Quintet (1956 Dawn, 1998 Blue Moon)

The 4 Most was a vocal group quartet that consisted of Al Evans, Chuck Sedacca, Joe Derise and Marv Falcon, supported here by an octet that included Dick Sherman, Gene Quill, Al Cohn, Hank Jones, and others. The 4 Most's style was very reminiscent of the Four FreshmenHi-Lo school of jazz vocal harmony, and especially close to the upper range that the Hi-Lo's often highlighted. On the dozen titles from this group, there are several occasions for solo features, including a scatted “Bernie's Tune,” “Let A Smile Be Your Umbrella,” and “Bye Bye Blackbird.”

In 1956, singer Bob Stewart and the members of the Mat Mathews Quintet recorded twelve tracks at the New Jersey studio of Rudy Van Gelder. Let's Talk About Love, originally released on the Dawn label, has now been digitally remastered and licensed to Fresh Sound Records as the second part of this reissue (now called simply Bob Stewart). Listening to this music, now just short of fifty years old, one hears a first-rate jazz crooner. Stewart's voice has deepened since this recording, as his 1990s albums, largely on his own VWC label, attest; his sound here could be compared to that of Mel Torme or Dick Haymes

http://rapidshare.com/files/361168062/Hubbard___Shaw_-_The_Eternal_Triangle__1987___flac_.part2.rar

Hubbard's return to Blue Note was best realized on these two records, where he was set in inspired partnership with Woody Shaw. Although Shaw's playing had by now become somewhat unpredictable, both sessions mustered many creative sparks, with Garrett taking an occasional solo and the rhythm section in prime form on both dates. As an example of two-horn lead playing both records are celebratory in nature, and the brassy brilliance of the unison passages is enough to make up for any shortfall in some of the solos. Another plus is the choice of material, an unusual collection of jazz themes associated with trumpeters: Double Take includes Clifford Brown's 'Sandu' and the Navarro-McGhee 'Boperation', while The Eternal Triangle features themes by Little Benny Harris, Kenny Dorham and Lee Morgan. Both are recommended.

My small contribution to you - Artist: Herb Ellis
Album: Nothing But the Blues
Year: 1957/58
Label: Verve
Size:123 mb
Audio: mp3 320 + scans
Total time: 58:18
--------------------------------------------

Tracks:

1. Pap's Blues (Ray Brown) 7:09
2. Bid Red's Boogie Woogie (Herb Ellis) 5:41
3. Tin Roof Blues (Georg Brunis/Paul Mares/Ben Pollack/Leon Roppolo/Mel Stitzel) 3:02
4. Soft Winds (Benny Goodman) 6:04
5. Royal Garden Blues (Clarence Williams/Spencer Williams) 4:48
6. Patti Cake (Herb Ellis) 6:03
7. Blues For Janet (Ray Brown/Herb Ellis/Stuff Smith) 7:15
8. Blues For Junior (Ray Brown) 4:56
9. Les Tricheurs (Roy Eldridge/Stan Getz) 3:15
10. Clo's Blues (Coleman Hawkins) 3:22
11. Phil's Tune (Roy Eldridge) 4:23
12. Mic's Jump (Dizzy Gillespie) 2:15

Personnel:

Herb Ellis(Guitar)
Roy Eldridge (Trumpet)
Ray Brown (Double Bass)
Stan Getz (Tenor Saxophone)
Stan Levey (Drums) — 1-8
Dizzy Gillespie(Trumpet) — 9-12
Coleman Hawkins (Tenor Saxophone) — 9-12
Oscar Peterson (Piano) — 9-12
Gus Johnson(Drums) — 9-12

Guitarist Herb Ellis considers this is his favorite personal album and it is easy to see why. With trumpeter Roy Eldridge and tenor saxophonist Stan Getz contributing contrasting but equally rewarding solos and lots of inspired riffing while bassist Ray Brown and drummer Stan Levey join Ellis in the pianoless rhythm section, these performances have plenty of color and drive. Ellis does indeed stick to the blues during the original eight selections yet there is also a surprising amount of variety. This CD reissue has been augmented by four numbers from 1958 originally recorded for a European soundtrack. Getz, Eldridge, and Coleman Hawkins all have their features but Dizzy Gillespie fares best. — AMG

CHICO FREEMAN _ SPIRIT SENSITIVE (1979) [flac,cue,log,scans]

Apparently discontinued this stunningly beautiful album by a master saxophonist.

This is what Chris Sheridan hd to say writing in the May 1980 Jazz Journal:

If sufficient of my esteemed colleagues lend an ear to this album, it will undoubtedly figure strongly in the end-of-year Poll, and deservedly so, because it is one of the most uncompromisingly beautiful ballad albums I have heard. Yet, Freeman had to be persuaded to record it; he disapproved of the concept initially because he was wary of the compromise that has emasculated so much of our music during the past decade.
Although this is tenor playing in the 'Grand Tradition', it is in no way merely re-creative. Freeman develops his melodies strongly, using modern as well as 'mainstream' resources, so those who have questioned the value of certain latter-day explorations of pitch and timbre will find some pretty answers, notably in shimmering passages during It Never Entered My Mind. This performance, perhaps above all, encapsulates his mastery of time, rhythm, melody and construction so perfectly that, for this listener at least, Stan Getz has had to relinquish ownership of the tune.
Autumn In New York is touchingly austere, with a remarkable interplay between bass and tenor that sparks the entire album, especially Don't Get Around, which, like Horace Silver's Peace, provides the album's medium-tempo contrasts. If Chico is to become 'King' of the upcoming tenors, then 'Spirit Sensitive' will be a pearl in the crown.

01 - Autumn In New York
02 - Peace
03 - A Child Is Born
04 - Lonnie Lament
05 - You Dont Have To Say Your Sorry
06 - Wise One
07 - It Nevered Entered My Mind
08 - Close To You Alone
09 - Carnival
10 - Dont Get Around Much Any More

Michel Petrucciani - Promenade with Duke (1993)

FLAC + scans

In an interview, Michel Petrucciani said "...my biggest inspiration is Duke Ellington, because in my very early age he gave [me] the inspiration to play the piano." For Promenade with Duke Petrucciani not only honors music Ellington composed, but music with which he was associated. There are some Billy Strayhorn pieces and other songs where Ellington's compositional contributions are arguably marginal. That the album offers an adventure in harmony is predicted by the first cut, "Caravan." Stretching over seven minutes in length, it explores, in-depth, virtually every nuance of this 1936 hit which Ellington wrote with trombonist Juan Tizol. Bold approaches to harmonies notwithstanding, Petrucciani does not desert his basic let-it-all-hang-out romanticism which he celebrates on "Lush Life." He emphasizes feelings of sentimentality in his rendition of "In a Sentimental Mood." His interpretation is brooding and introspective, but every now and then some bright chords hold out the hope that the somber climate may be passing. Petrucciani is a master at clarifying the mood he is trying to create with his piano. Not all the music on the album is familiar Ellington, as shown in the presence of two rarely performed pieces, "Hidden Joy" and "One Night in the Hotel." It is on the well-known "Take the 'A' Train," however, that Petrucciani expresses best the joy he experiences with Ellington's music and the influence it has had on him. His is a rousing, twisting rendition of the Duke's signature tune. Promenade with Duke is one of the more innovative and stimulating sets of solo piano performances of Ellington's music on disc.

Nat Adderley - In The Bag (1962) [flac,cue,log,scans]

This album was possibly the first modern jazz studio recording in the city which gave birth to jazz. This rip is from the early 90s CD with extra tracks, sadly this is no longer in catalogue.

Riverside JLP 75
Nat Adderley (cnt); Cannonball Adderley (alt); Nat Perrilliat (ten); Ellis Marsalis (p); Sam Jones (b); James Black (d).
New Orleans. June, 1962.

Review: Jazz Journal Vol 16 No 12, December 1963:

This is an unusual album, in that it presents the results of what is probably the first modern jazz record date to take place in New Orleans. The Adderleys and Sam Jones are reinforced by three excellent young musicians, Nat Perrilliat (tenor), Ellis Marsalis (piano) and James Black— the latter being an outstanding drummer, influenced by Elvin Jones more than anyone else. Even if the other two newcomers are less than outstanding, they illustrate something I have long suspected —that there are almost as many good musicians (if not brilliant ones) who never see the inside of a recording studio as there are modest talents who are constantly thrust upon us.
Nat Adderley is in fine form on this record, playing inventive solos on most tracks. As might be expected, most of the tracks are blues of one sort or another, several written by the locals. An exception is R.S.V.P., a pleasing ballad feature for Nat. Adderley addicts will want this, of course, and others are advised to hear it for James Black. ~ Michael Shera

Hi, could you give us the exacts titles ??

I have 2 versions of the Siamese Children (320 and mp4)

"Long night" seems to be OK as well

now i tried to extract with 7zip. 7 zip extract the files in contrast to winrar, but shows the same errors: crc error - data is damaged. and i can hear many faults

swingingduck said...

@petrucelli...you're not the only one. I have the same problem.
I also managed to extract files with 7-zip, but there are so many faults.

petruccelli said...

thank you swingingduck for the resonance. now i know that i am not alone with this problem. for me seems that the most don't care about things like this. incurious, no matter what happens

swingingduck said...

petrucccelli, you're right. I also have the same impression, that almost nobody cares for things like this.

So I want to take this opportunity to ask our dear host something.

Mel, on Dave Pell's album Jazz Goes Dancing posted on April 17, tracks no. 1, 2 & 4 have very annoying " metallic " distortion on one channel.
Can you please re-up them?
I wouldn't mention this, but the album is so wonderful that it breaks my heart to listen to it with that very unpleasant "attachment".
Thank you anyway.

swingingduck said...

Bhowani my friend,

Don't take petrucelli's reaction too offensive.

Remember, it's not only petrucelli who has that problem.

Here is the list of damaged tracks:
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 16.

If you would be willing to help, that would be really great.
If not, I'll understand.

Rapid share change again today the rules , also for premium user

Is now by far more expensive and complicated than before.

I think maybe is better ( I'm also a RS user , for almost 3 years ) to switch to another storeage service.

What you think about this ?
Several people are going now with megaupload, before this last change of RS ( i.e : jazzman )

Megaupload seems simple as the old RS, and the storage of files for premium user d'nt have any limit time.

welcome back Mel!
excellent news for all SVNV's friends!

Mal said...

PLEASE, anywhere but Megaupload!!

For whatever reason, MU is NOT accessible to users of many developing/Asian nations...

we get this dreaded message instead...

"This service is [temporarily] not available from your service area."

temporarily being the past few years!

Hotfile and suchlike,

please, pretty please..

RS has morphed yet again, much more user friendly with unlimited carryover of traffic. Apparently lots of complaints.

If anyone has EmArcy's 1955 album of the Eddie Heywood trio, titled 'Eddie Heywood, and is will to share track 10 - Heywood's Bounce - I'd be grateful, since mine has a glitch in it!
