after browsing this place for a few hours and downloading multiple albums, i came across this posting, which solidified your place as my new favorite music sharing blog.
as soon as i get around to hooking up my record player to the computer i can get you a copy of an earlier release of this album with different track listing.

Thanks Christopher, we're glad you enjoy The P5. As you know we DO NOT host any music files on this site. We simply point you to other blogs that choose to do so. But, let us know when you get that USB turntable and we'll be glad to link to the album.
