ernie, this has been an amazing run of amazing records, made possible by an amazing guy: you! i have to tell you that, in all honesty, christmas 2006 will be a memorable one for me because it was the christmas of this blog, these records, and the amazing christmas spirit they generated for me and my family... we've all enjoyed listening to these fine albums, and every one of us thanks you. i can't believe all the hard work you've put into this, from shelling out your hard-earned cash for the albums in the first place, on down to digitizing them, scanning the art, uploading it all and then finally writing about it. it's pretty astounding. i'm not the kind of person who gushes much about anything, but i can't help but gush about your amazing work with this website. thanks a million times, and i hope to see you, read you, and hear you again next christmas. in the meantime, i'll be checking in to check on your fine photography throughout the year. take care! annie.

Impressive collection I must say overall...but I do have one suggestion on file storage... Rapidshare's driving me nuts on the hour and a half waits between downloads and I am hoping that you can find another site (say for future uploads... Other than that...keep up the good work...

Sorry about the RapidShare, but at this point, I'm sorta stuck with it. I think I've got over 250 shares on there, and it would take a while to move them. Just take your time, the downloads aren't going anywhere. And stay tuned for Christmas in July. Not far away now...
