    I think the file is busted!
    I’ve tried twice and I continue to get an error message when I try to unzip the file.
    Anyone else having this problem?

    Just downloaded to test, works fine. It’s a large file (100MB), make sure you’ve downloaded the entire thing before attempting to unzip.

    I cant make sendspace work. The page loads, then bounces to something else. I tried to click quickly, but I’m not as fast as I used to be.

    There should never been an issue, but I’ve uploaded to Mediafire.

    Thank you so much Greg! This is sounding awesome! I can’t express the scale of my gratitude for all the magical music you share with us all, you’ve changed my life in the most positive of ways.

    Mediafire worked perfectly!

    Thanks a million.

    Sometimes you never know what you’re looking for until you find it! Just discovered this dude today, and now I’ve found your wonderful site by searching for him. Beautiful, beautiful music. Thank you so much for sharing!

    I owned this record many years ago, and it’s great to hear it again. Thanks so much for ignoring copyright law and enabling me to illegally download this work!

    Thank You!

    Many years of searching now ended!

    Only thing now remainig on the wish-list of treasures is the Fahey EP on finnish Savel Records from 1968! :-)

    Thanks for this, I think GC is an amazing guitarist who was and is largely unappreciated. Very strange and sad to think he was gone less than ten years after recording the sublime music of Wind in the Heather.

    Much appreciated, thank you!
