    I knew I was fishing for Lucky with these posts! Thanks for your comments – and you’re probably the only one to leave 2 comments a day. Keep on the good work!

    continuo – you put a lot of love and effort in your blog here, it’s my duty to tell you – you’re not living in a vacuum, and i appreciate your work as a whole very much, even though i’m not into every single one of your posts, but those 2… you know!

    fishing for lucky is much easier than fishing for continuo, i think… but worth a try :+D

    I have this cassette. Nice to get a digital copy of it, thanks. Mimi doesn’t appear to have released any further compilations, of which I’m aware, after the 1988 festival.

    Hi Gidouille. There was a Mimi 89 Festival LP, though. Would be nice to hear it, I think. Thanks for dropping by.

    Interesting, I have the first two vinyl Mimi compilations, but have never come across the 1989 one.
