  3. It's ME.
    This is/was intended to be my Charging Blog - you know... where I would get at least some return for my efforts...

  4. I did wonder, a certain likeness of design :-) So, a Paypal button for donations, or some other means. I'm certainly up for contributing for Hassan, great sound clarity I thought (from my less than robust ear!)

  5. I'd need another Paypal account - as mine (used solely for eBay) would otherwise become a 'business account' - which would incur fees, in some other instances.
    Of course - with a Donations button I'd maybe get *really* upset - given the large numbers of downloads..(though Megaupload now,seemingly, have decided to hide that aspect..).
    I can confirm the 'clarity' of this transfer - that's why it was uploaded - as 'knew' "Pr......'s" was from the very inferior Philips GL re-issue (though that info was 'hidden' - as with the source of the Milhaud, above) - and the CBS Classics doesn't have the 'studio atmosphere' / transient speed, either...and those are aspects I try to ensure are retained from the outset - not 'created' with EQ fiddling, et al.
    But, really must seriously consider making this 'service' at least meet my 'out-of-pocket-expenses'...hence this 'independent' blog..

  6. Thank you for this and for the Milhaud. If you want to start charging, I say go for it!
