For those who experience trouble when trying to download with FileFactory :

On the Filefactory page, you have to go on the bottom of the page to find the download link: "Download now with file factory basic" or something like that.

Then you will be redirected on a page with a countdown (20 sec wait) and you'll have access to the file.

Sorry for the inconvenience of this file service (full of ads, pop ups etc) but it was the only one I could access at the time (Rapidshare or megaupload broke the upload each time I tried to use them).

well there IS a problem with filefactory, that is as long as you keep the "basic formula" which stops download systemetically before complete, but it works fine with their "premium" offer. All in all, your compilation is well worth it!

thanks a lot I'm looking forward, patiently :) for a revA of this fantastic Robert Wyatt set. I write this because I d/l it and lost in a hard disc crash. At that time I didn't have any CDR left, otherwise, such great CD would have been on audio CD immediately...

I still remember how I was suprised by some tracks; the Lennon unexpecter cover for instance...
