Repeating Problem

Some people keep walking against this from time to time.
If the numbers you fill in to download keep coming back,
do not despair. If you try again on a later moment, it
will probably work as meant. We can’t seem to find out
why this occurs, it just does. Hang on, stay tuned and
eventually your patience will be rewarded ..

  1. My solution: Come back and retrieve your download during overnight or other slow hours. It’s worked well for me.

  2. Maybe to help out with determing a “pattern”… Sometimes it works at the first try…. If not, it almost always works on the 2nd try.

  3. I tend to open downloads in a new tab by Command-clicking links. On this site, I only click one link at a time, and then fill out the captcha, and then download. If I click more than one link (open more than one tab at a time containing live captchas) and then start filling out captchas, I will have to fill out each captcha twice, because it will reject the first captcha I enter on each page/tab. Maybe that will help some readers? – Love the blog, extremely thankful for the all music. Cheers Moos!

  4. Does your hoster have multiple instances of your server running when under load? It could be a load balancer configuration issue. If so you might need to enable persistent sessions so the codes get sent to the same server for each user.

  5. Sorry you’re having troubles, mate.
    Hope you find a solution with a minimum of frustration.

  6. uk, three different Mac computer and operating systems. Snow leopard to Catalina. Everything on your site working fine. Thank you so much for the time and effort you put in, we really do appreciate it.

  7. Hi Moos,

    I also noticed that the On-U Sound records are showing up again… I don’t want the On-U cops to get you again 😉

  8. I wonder if when the site gets back if you have any Abdoulaye Diabate to post. If so, please do. Thank you!

  9. i never had a problem until I updated my Firefox browser. I thought it was the AdBlocker at first, but the problem keeps happening, a never-ending loop of numbers to enter that just reloads only to enter more numbers; enter; reload, enter new numbers; enter; reload, enter new numbers; enter; reload ….. repeat. before it only would happen once, now its continuous. i won’t give up. maybe i’ll try another brower. because I LOVE THIS SITE!!

  10. Moos, I am not exaggerating in saying that your ambassador work has changed my life.
    Thank you so much and may you be blessed with a long and happy life

  11. … it’s been a while since I passed by here and I missed something, it seems …….. some great music, at least 🙂
    thanks for the reuploads and for all you do! <3
    yesterday it worked.
    personally I prefer the blog to youtube, as far as it matters 😀
    hope the best for you
    cheers from italy

  12. How are you doing. I have been following your blog for over 15 years now or more. Great job.

    I am looking for this song Chief Commander Ebenezer Obey made to praise King Sunny Ade. I believe the title is Sunny Ade mi.

    Would be glad if you can find it.

    Thanks again for the great job. Whats a better email to reach you.

  13. There is no problem. You want one, you download one. When you tag more, you get this problem. so tag one, download one. tag the next and dowload the next etcetera can one be more clear

  14. First of all, thank you so so much for the music! Much appreciated.

    I find that most of the time downloads work fine. However, on the odd occasion (usually UK evening time) when they don’t, it doesn’t matter how many times I try, I can’t get the downloads to work.

    I’ve now learnt to be patient, if the download isn’t working then I simply accept it and try again the next day. I have noticed that I have never had an issue if I tried during the day.

    Take care.

  15. I can confirm the timing thing; went repeating forever… tried the next morning EST, and no problem!

    Thx, NO BIG THX!!! so excellent!

  16. I can’t be 100% sure, but to me it looks like a timezone problem: I’m on the west coast of the US, and I pretty consistently experience it after the date has changed in UTC (or possibly GMT+1), but not yet over here. I suspect there’s a check in the captcha that verifies not too much time has gone by that fails to take time zones into account.

  17. Bij mij geen verandering. Het gebeurd wanneer ik twee elpees heb getagged. Als ik dan de eerste captcha invul, krijg ik altijd een tweede in te vullen. Dat is nu nog zo.
    Groeten Richard

  18. yeah its happening again. i thought the ad-blocker was the problem. i’ve experienced it before and i’ve also gotten thru it. this time is different t

  19. Here in my timezone, the issue occurs from 19:00 to 21:00, so within those two hours period of time the numbers keep coming back. After that it works pretty fine the rest of the day, so I see no problem in having those two-hours break as it seems to be always at the same time and lasting the same hours. We surely can get used to this.

    By the way, thank you for all your recent posts. Amazing afro-sounds to chill in the afternoon.

  21. How are you MOOS greetings from Panama, I have followed your site for many years and the truth is that it is EXCELLENT, thanks to you I learned to appreciate African music and music from other latitudes, I also saw that you have posted very good records from my country, some Cumbia Tasty, thanks for everything you do for the benefit of music, and if you need a particular Panamanian album to collaborate on your Blog, do not hesitate to contact me, my email is Greetings my brother, a hug in the distance.

  22. Dear Moos,
    First of all many many thanks for your shares all of these years.
    Great Music , Great Artists.
    Could you please explain us why are you still sharing uploading FALSE rips?
    70%-80%l of your rips have real bitrate 128-192 kbps….and you “baptize” them as 320 kbps . Why are you doing this?
    PS. Most of the blogs now, for ex the greats hollandtunneldive , musicrepublic are sharing now mostly flac files, and surely not false rips.

    • Dear Leonidas,
      I don’t understand how you find 70% of my rips at this
      lower bitrate. I have always used Winamp-Pro to make my
      Mp3’s. It is standard on 320 kbps, if I open them in my
      playlist and check the bitrate, okay, it tells me 319
      instead of 320, but never 128 or 192, really never. Can
      you give me examples of records that you found at 128 or
      192 please ? I’d like to do my own check ..
      P.S. I would NEVER lie about it.

      • Dear Moos,
        Check for examble all of your Docteur Nico rips.
        L’ afrique dance 5 ,10 …..

        PS. i think almost none use winamp now…for ripping/sharing.
        Basically winamp was one of the main reasons for the spreading of false rips.

        • Dear Leonidas, I’m so sorry to hear this for the first time. In all
          those years I am using Winamp, nobody took the trouble to tell me this.
          I never knew. However this may be true, people always told me my rips
          sound so nice. having said this, what is a good alternative for Winamp ?
          I love it for its appearance, the possibility of making playlists in two ways,
          the search options, is not Winamp I wouldn’t know what to use.
          I’ve been using for 14 years now ..

  23. Foobar 2000 ( free and open source software for LISTENING, converting wav, flac files to 320 kbps CBR.
    Since 2 years ago i am visiting your blog , and i am downloading your files only for the covers while i am searching for a better bitrate.
    My sound system cant play your files without noise.
    Thank you again for your time and please stop spreading false rips.

    PS. Your blog and your knowledge are valuable for the world music community.

  24. Just to say thank you for all that you offer and really enjoy your choices and comments. Hope everything is alright really missing seeing your uploads….
