    Very cool. I would have expected this one to end up on Ramdog’s rough site…

    Big thanks. My vinyl copy is well the worse for wear and this is an under-rated gem.

    I decided to let go of Ramdog’s Roughsite. It’s enough work to keep one page going. So from now on you can expect just any type of music on the GG. I’ll keep it there, it’s still got some content.
    thnx guys..

    I came to this site for the first time a week ago and was hooked instantly. This is probably in my top 3 favorite finds on the internet. It really is a blessing to find a website that does not let music be forgotten and really have the best kind of it. Thank you very much for the good work. You probably can imagine the joy i had while hearing for the first time the gems you have from congo and cuba, but also the bossa nova and dub lps.
    I live in Peru and saw that you only have 1 peruvian lp. I have some old groovy vinyls if your interested that im sure you will love. If you want them so you can put them on globalgroovers just ask and i will make sure i digitize them :)
