Requests & Contributions Forum #41: December 2016

Here's your place to post your request and contributions.

Shares are more than welcome.

For those of you who are not familiar with this forum rules please read the following guidelines.

R&C Guidelines by Aclev:

This part of the site has become quite popular and active, and we certainly thank all of you for participating.  Like any other active forum a few guidelines will ensure everyone has a positive experience here. We're not trying to impose a bunch of rules, but a little common sense should prevail.
1. Do not make anonymous requests. (Use the "Name" option instead of the "Anonymous" one. It doesn't have to be your real life name, a nick will do fine.)
2. Please don't post a laundry list of 25 requests at once. Even if you're active in sharing with the forum, that gets to be a bit much.
3. Be specific. Some of the artists we deal with have vast discographies. A request that reads "Any Miles Davis? Thanks!" is not the way to go.
4. Please don't request things that are already available elsewhere on the internet.  That means you have checked Munju and Google first.
1. Please don't share brand new releases here. There are plenty of horrid sites out there like IsraBox and Plixid that are doing that. Contrary to what the occasional troll may say, we're not here to rip anyone off.
2. Bitrate snobbery. This can be tricky, so here's the deal.  Many of the releases we deal with are quite obscure, and some haven't been seen on the internet for years. It wasn't that long ago that 256 was state of the art, and 192 and 128 were the norm. Sometimes the only rips out there of that rare disc may be at a lower bitrate.  If you have an upgrade, then by all means offer it, but don't grumble about someone's share. A lower bitrate rip may be better than nothing at all.
Again, we're not trying to get rule happy, just trying to make everyone's experience here (yours and ours) a little smoother. That said, back to shares and requests..

1. Prior to making a request, please check first the "Blog Archive: Musicians List" .
2. If you have a request for links re-up that you've seen in previous forum, please post your request in the current forum and not at the original one otherwise the chances that people will see your requests are slim.
3. If you can't find what you're looking for, click "Load More" located at the bottom of the comments page. You may need to do this several times, when "Load More" is no longer shown you'll be seeing all the comments.
