Hiya Steve
I only doscovered your blog tonight following a CM mailout.
Picked up a few great looking comps I'd missed in the past like the continuing 70s and the Joe Jackson, plus this rocksteady one too.
I'll have a good evening tonight and tomorrow.
Please keep up your sterling work.
Cheers

THIS BLOG IS AWESOME

I added you to my links

May I recommend uploading files to zshare.net as users can download as many as they want at the same time, whereas megaupload restricts it to one.
