Is there an mp3 link to use? I can't seem to decode flac files.

onxidlib said...

There is a free software available for de/encoding flac to wave - wave to mp3...

It's called "traders little helper" > http://tlh.easytree.org/

Any chance of a re-upload? All links were dead ends (and Megaupload closed, naturally.)

onxidlib said...

A re-up is due soon...

onxidlib said...

Uploading will take a bit longer - I do not have the files on my PC anymore....

I will use the excuse of still being somewhat new to music blogs (about a month now) to mention a desire for someone to post...
Around the late 70's early 80's ( i think) there were at least two, Oliver Lake AND Jump UP, albums released. I think they are out of print (I did amazon search and all it mentions is used vinyl)
DUUUUUDE "Breath Of Life"(a song on one of the albums, cmon man that is one of the most wonderful pieces of rock and roll ever recorded!!!

onxidlib said...

I do not understand entirely your comment - do you (also) want and re-up?
The link is still working. Tried it some minutes ago and it worked without being logged in.

No I posted the comment in the wrong place, I was down loading the "Sky Cries the Blues" because it caught my eye as i was looking for "Oliver Lake with Jump Up: Plug It"
I found out the name of the album after a while googling.

It still looks to me like it is out of print as i only see vinyl. i dont really understand the criteria for "out of print" .. I just remember the song, 'Breath Of Life' on Plug It, as being worthy of being a Rock Classic... except for perhaps too enlightened to qualify.
