    I ain't got this one one, unfortunatly.... But I really love it. It's a shame that it is so expensive nowadays.
    I missed the chance to buy it a few years back when it was available for cheap from a certain seller.
    Anyway, I'm still not sure whether these were bootlegs or not. The rest of your list looks a lot like the songs I play out on the regular.
    Fryer, just out of curiosity, what kind of music do you paly these days? Still that hardcore funk 45 dj?
    Since I cant log in on the deep funk board anymore I'm a bit .
