A note on the Mississippi Records tape series:

We have several more tapes to upload, but our tape player just quit on us. If we can find them on the 'net, we'll post them here, but it may be a while. In the meantime, we plan to make good on our commitment to post some of Mississippi's hard-to-find LP releases.

I love these comps, however when you click on the link to download #5, it takes you to #6. Could you fix the link? Thanks!!!

Hey Joe - tape 5, side A doesn't download for some reason...


Liquid Vega said...

Yeah, is there any chance of fixing tape 5 side A? Side B is killer! Thanks so much for these posts!

wow, thanks so much for making this available. Let me assure you, this is only going to fuel my rabid search for these original records, and as for the super rare stuff that's unavailable, thanks a million for helping to make it available.

...but yeah, like the others have said, Side A on tape 5 is broken...

May the sweetest spirits bless and watch over you, this music is warming my heart. Just to be informative, Tape six has digital glitches throughout, could this have been caused by my computer or did it max out durring the digitizing process?

Mar said...

Yep the crunches were on there the 2nd time I downloaded vol 6 as well. Listening to the spiritual singers right now damn!
