V.A. - Ripples (Vol. 1-8)

Here's a bunch of rips that were all from different sources. The bitrate differs from volume to volume but once this series was requested, I decided to post it. Actually Vol. 7 was missing but a real nice person has sent me the rip of this volume so you and I can enjoy the complete set (THANKS A LOT TO YOU).

Great CD set, I have all in the series, but on Vol. 6, in my opinion, an amazing track by Michelle fisher, her version of When You Walk In The Room. Does any body have any info on her??

3 years after the compilations are always listened with great pleasure.
A request;in the land of repertoire has Buffalo in his collection the cd Dave Clarck Five - Washington DC's ?,more for the second group.A friend recently spoke me of the group and it seems only repertoire issued something in the beginning of the nineties.Thanks Buffalo.
