The Sweet Inspirations What The World Needs Now front

D.J. Rogers - It's Good To Be Alive front

The Brothers Don't Stop Now front

The “Brothers” appeared to be little more than a New York set of studio players, led by Bhen Lanzaroni – but they did an amazing job of replicating a Philly instrumental sound, with plenty of heavy bass at the...

Nikos, It is always better to vinyl lossless 24/96. How to listen to and make music out of it (the samples). CD can be in mp3 and listen to 320, there is no great loss.
