thxs for those gems ! 1980 link doesnt seem to work...am I wrong ?

The 1979 comp is wonderful. The previous poster is right, though. I have dl'ed the 1980 comp twice and both times got an "unexpected end of file" when trying to open the zip archive. Any chance of re-upping this one? Thanks!

These really need to be reissued.

Unforgettable compilations,Ithank for that
Karlos

Thanks again for your amazing work!

Great documents of 80s, thanks i fond your blog full of memories and good music I expect can find some early DAF recordings here best regards

The link for Indie Scene 1980 it doesn't work anymore. Please, recheck and post again.
Thank you. Your blog is great!

yeah the 79 link doesnt work any more :(

Many thanks for these, Jörg! Interesting mix of big hits and forgotten gems.

And following up from the previous comments, it seems that 1979 has indeed gone. Fortunately though, the "I Was Saved By Music" blog has that one available here.
