Subject:  Oriental Traditional Music from LPs & Cassettes

Many of you are familiar with the priceless blog library of music and information called,
Oriental Traditional Music from LPs & Cassettes
https://oriental-traditional-music.blogspot.com

The creator of that collection, Axel Elbin, aka Tawfiq, left his body last year.
His last blog post was in March, 2019.

Axel stored all of the blog's audio files on public file storage sites...
adrive, dropbox, and mediafire.
Axel's subscription to adrive has now expired, resulting in all of those
audio file links to now fail.  I suspect the same thing will happen with dropbox and mediafire.

Louis Farrugia, Daniel Fuchs, and I have worked to preserve this important
library of incredible music.

A clone of Oriental Traditional Music from LPs & Cassettes, with all of the
audio files, can now be found here:
http://www.rudraveena.org/theBlog/oriental-traditional-music.blogspot.com/index.html

It does not work exactly like the original.  
The little triangle zip expanders do not work, so click the link next to it, instead.

This outstanding library must be preserved.

I encourage anyone, to use a website copier, such as HTTrack, do download the
http://www.rudraveena.org site, which includes this blog clone.
I may be told to take it down, in the future.

Big.
The blog is 299 GB.
Add on what is in rudraveena.org, and the total download is 305.12 GB.
Expect it to take days.

Shout out to the owner of Marion Street Records, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, https://marionstreetrecords.bandcamp.com/
for finding some broken links on the blog clone and sending me an email with the details.  I've fixed those links to the 2ème Festival Algérien de la Musique Andalouse 1969 and
3ème festival de musique Andalouse Alger 1972 music files.

If anyone finds any more problems, please let me know.
Thanks.
