    Thanks again! This was the one I was waiting for! Still sounds good many years later. Any Wendy & Lisa coming our way?

      Glad you got this one, by now your Wendy & Lisa question has been answered and there will be more of them to come as the blog continues on…

    Dude, thank you much! I have been scouring the Web for this one, and Lord Behold, you have it! The quality is very, very good! Kudos! I do have the original 12″ in my collection, but did not have the time or the software to do the audio/music file conversion. Keep up the GREAT work!

    Thanks to your uploads I rediscovered Sheila E. (I always listened to the In Romance 1600 MC as a little Boy.)

    Can you please post the Sex Cymbal & Droppin’ Like Flies Remixes, if you have them. Thanks
