                             (PayPal, 1$=4PLN, e.g. 20.00$=80,00PLN).

* Still > 30 000 tracks are not pass-controlled. You may support the project, become the Active visitor by finding: 
2. errors (wrong version/description, incorrect link, etc.), 
3. poor copies = poor rips not bitrate (128 is satisfactory), or by leaving
4. comment, preferably under this post.
Your comments are essential to me. Creation of the Let The Good Times Roll Club, the Society that shares the same passion, that is willing to exchange comments, was my goal and that’s why I have added passes, blocked anonymous downloaders. To receive a link to spreadsheet with passes, please contact me via the Contact Field or Donation Button or/and join Facebook,

Google Drive cloud is used: 1. not banned worldwide, 2. updates are uploaded automatically, 3. no pop-ups, 4. no Time2Delete – no need for re-ups, 
all links are active as long as I'm paying for the Google cloud.

Every single track is (will be) remastered*, iZotope RX7 licenced software and Audacity freeware are applied. 
*remastering = fixing any shortcomings of the ripped vinyl or the transferred CD track (de-click, de-noise, normalization, intro/outro silence). The frequency spectrum is not "improved", it remains unchanged, as the norm.

 Files not remastered yet may contain tracks denoted as "missing", however ripped already or acquired the other way - I'll add them during the remastering process..

When remastering Billboard, creating UK chart files, I'm finding many bugs, wrong versions. I'm correcting all bugs, updating the files and the record of bugs/updates is stored on Fb.

---------------------------------------------------------------------  
** If you don’t like donations, you can buy missing or poor quality 45, rip it and send mp3 to me and this is the preferred way of support.

Lost Gems on 45’s, Part 2

 

This Part contains the most popular song in Poland in the early 60’s: L. Fisher & A. Gulino – Telegram Of Love. Those days, access to vinyls was in Poland limited to zero and records pressed on postcards replaced them. Telegram of Love, also frequently played in Polish Radio, was on top for few years. Every 70+, living in Poland in the 60s, remembers this song. Very nice tune, absolutely unknown outside of Poland. 45 was pressed in US and Italy. Also, discographies of other US Forgotten Artists: The Cannonballs, Lenny & The Thundertones, Lois Butler. Track-list and link in the Aggregate Post below.
