    1. Thanks Peer.
      This CD combines the two LPS I have posted. I assume the sound may be better than my rips ...
      Cheers

      p.s. If I have still have the time to rip it (I'm gonna travel again soon), I'll post the LP Gijs Hendriks Quartet - Dom Rocket. Unless you've posted it already.
