I am wondering whether that is the recording I've got on an external drive? There are loads of files on there.I burned one act of the opera,or part of it,onto a cd-r. The cd-r is in a box. (It could be the whole opera? I'll have to look!) If not it's probably all on the drive?! I thought I got it from here? But I think I might have downloaded it from the "other forum",during or just after the brief Dundonnell (Colin) era,when they had some music from post BC!

I've opened a new Mediafire account (the old one had been removed) and Our Man in Havana is uploading,albeit,very slowly,from my pc,right now!



He's on his way,right now! ::)

Our Man in Havana!

Not doing much of this kind of thing and being an analogue man by heart,I'm not sure exactly what to do now?!! (Although,I was able to do this once! I've just forgot! ::)) Also,the two files I uploaded have been labelled "Track 01",when one track is Cd 1 (that would be the biggest file!) & the other is (or,hopefully is?) cd 2! So,Albion will need to check it out,first! Also,I haven't listened to cd 2! (I kept meaning to! ::)) The whole opera is on the external drive,I believe? Somewhere?!!
