The Fools on the Hill compilation series is a staggering achievement! Each comp stands on its own thematically and the series is cohesive and thorough. The care and attention that went into cataloging all these comps is impressive and a great gift to listener.
You were absent from the blog for a time, but the new listing is a generous payoff after the long wait. My thanks.

all I can say is WOW and thank you!

Thanks for your work, as jaytingle says each comp stand by itself, I' ve been listening to them for years and pontificating your knowledge. I even used some of my favorite songs of your comps to animate some garage/60's parties in bars here in madrid.
I would love to see a FOTH-Captain Groovy Vol. 2 sometime!
