A revelation - opens with four lost classics, the air crackles as they ride out of the distance like apocalyptic horsemen all hopped up on Pinot Noir and an interesting array of cheese. And it just gets better. How wild is that? Nothing in my life so far has quite prepared me for Pesnyary, Pram and Archie Whitewater.

Uhhh, the mix is gone. Just found your site and the mix really looks promising.
Any chance or a re-upload?
