  2. Thanks for this and part 2. I think there is a problem with this Vol 1. Only 8 of the tracks are complete. Part 2 of vol 1 is only 92.1mb while vol 2 part 2 is 162mb. If both albums are of comparable length then vol 1 part 2 is missing some data. Sorry to bother you with an older post but I only now opened the folder and discovered the problem. I downloaded it again and had the same results. Is it too late to ask you to check this?
    Thank you,

  5. Thank you Crimhead for the new link. Everything worked fine. I appreciate you taking the time to look into this for me. I used to have Vols 1 & 2 on cassette and was very happy to finally get replacements.
