What an amazing compilation. I had no idea of this collection before. Do you know of any other place where I can find information. This is so much better than the usual lounge-whatever-volumes.

Only a few titles in these collections are familiar to me. I will spend the next few hours in easy heaven with the company of Mr Hawkshaw, Dale, & Clarke etc.
Many Thanks.

All links connect to a protected link at http://lix.in/. Each requires a set of characters to be filled (like on this page too). I cannot get one to work and allow me in - is the link dead or what is the problem?

Thanks

just tested, lix.in works fine, I've had no more deleted posts since I started using it...
It is CASE sensitive, sometimes its hard to read the characters but try again, it will work. No one else has complained of this problem...

Where did you get the Volume information? I don't think it's right. I actually have these CDs. Paco's Poolside Bar is Vol. 1, Playmates Penthouse is Vol. 2, Golden Cavalcade Casino is Vol. 3, and La Scandale Discoteque is Vol. 4. If you look at the covers, there is a city associated with each CD and all of the cities are listed on the bottom in order. The same order as the UPC.

All I know is I researched the songs in the KPM and Cavendish libraries, and those specifc songs are incorrectly listed.
