This one just doesn't want to open once it's downloaded. Is there something about the password that I'm just not getting? Thanks though for all the other cool tunes...

AtticRock said...

Thats strange.
These files were downloaded more than one hundred times each and no one complained...
Do a copy+paste and you should be fine:
I Heard It On The Soundaboard

Agreed Gio.

It doesn't work...what's the point of passwording the damn thing anyway?

The mirror link for Part 1 doesn't work; all I get is 'The document contains no data'. Please fix this.

Hey, I recently added a news widget from www.widgetmate.com to my blog. It shows the latest news, and just took a copy and paste to implement. Might interest you too.

Thanx a lot, works fine.
I taped the show life myself from radio while looking it on tv.
I'm living in Essen now and then but was too young to join the show, my parents won't let me.
My tapes still alive but in bad condition so I'm glad to find this download :-)
Thanx!

ZZ Top played at Rockpalast in 19-20 April 1980. It was their first show outside USA. Look:

this was the first international concert I attended, before that I only visited some local group gigs - I was 1ike 18 and blown away by Ian Hunter and ZZ Top that night, good old times...
thanks
