I have received the CD and I was most impressed. instrumentals are rare so that and the quality of the music makes it a natural mix for my radio shows.

Hi Harry ,
Thanks very much for the CD & sorry to take so long to get back to you.
I think all ABARAC announcers get inundated with music & it's really hard to get through everything.
Like your release very much & will play 3 tracks on Top Shelf Music in the near future when I can.
I wish you nothing but success & thanks again for giving me the chance to listen.
