    Hi Moos, <br /><br />I bought that Haiti comp a while back and it is indeed fabulous.<br />It is true to say that one reason I knew I&#39;d want to buy that CD is because of all the wonderful compas and other Haitian styles you&#39;ve put up here over the years.<br /><br />If it wasn&#39;t for this blog, I am pretty sure I wouldn&#39;t have bought that CD. And there have been so many other cases

    Haïti Direct is a magnificent compilation indeed. I&#39;m excited to hear this LP. Thanks!<br /><br />Yann

    Hallo Moos,<br />My interest for this music started with the Dance!Cadence!-compilation on Globe Style in the mid-eighties.<br />….and yes, I also bought the Haïti Direct double-lp…. so I&#39;m really looking forward to listening to this one.<br />Thanks again very much.<br /><br />Wim
