    Tell me Pearlsmusic isn't really gone. I barely had a chance to scratch the surface of all the discoveries there. Any chance of restoring it? Is there a list of musicians ?? [I only explored the last half of December to the present.] You guys have amazing ears - so many good postings. Please let me know what happens. Does Jotien have a blog? What about your other co-conspirator? Can't wait to explore your site here.

    thanks for everything

    PS: I never knew that about Twister.

  2. Hey LD... Yeah we have our new site at http://musicalpearls.vlsweb.net.br
    It is a bit out of date, but any albums you saw and don't have let us know and we can surely repost... Kinda sucks we lost the last three weeks, but the biggest chunk is still alive.
