looks promising...but I keep getting a "format error" when I try to expand the file...

after 200+ downloads, the only comment is one reporting that the file is broken. Has anyone else encountered this problem? axissixa, I'm unsure of the solution, but note this particullar .rar isn't compressed, it just stores the mp3s similar to how a folder would; hence there should be no expand...

Thanks for the follow up...Stuffit Expander couldn't handle it but unRarX did.

Hey I have some psychedelic funk/soul mixes I'd like you to have...they were a post on lost-in-tyme just before it disappeared. I mixed them with sound samples and effects and cover art...enjoy.

the problem is with program you are using to "unrar". We use Winrar to compress all files, hence Winrar should work for decompressing. Also, apparently unRarX will work...try using google to search for both...hope this helps.
