Groovy Christmas!

December 7th 2007

This will be my last entry for a while as I'm about to leave for another digging trip. I won't yet tell to the destination but this has the potential to be anything from total bust to a gold mine. After that, I will spend the entire month of January in Benin.

This is my favorite African Christmas Funk 45:

Let me take this occasion to thank you all for the time you spent keeping up with this blog and most of all, thanx for your comments, mails and responses, you have really encouraged me a great deal and given me motivation to dig much deeper than I would have without you.

There were some bumps in the road around the start but all in all, it's been an amazing year so full of impressions that looking back, it seems to have lasted much longer than just 12 months. All the best, good health and peace for 2008 everybody!

Hi Frank,

Safe and happy travels! In Belgium/UK (for 2 weeks): cold and wet. I downloaded the last batch of mixes: wonderful and amazing as always, making me forget the winter outside!

Take care,

Happy Christmas and thanks for all the music! You must be rescuing stuff that would otherwise be doomed to be lost forever - hope you make up a proper long-term archive at some point. Did I mention you deserve to get your K at the very least? Services to music and all that...
