    Maybe file transfer was interrupted when you were downloading it and the file became corrupt. Try downloading it again if you are still having trouble.

    is the hawaiian band BET still around?

  11. jayfnz says:

    i have a mac, and it unzipped just fine. try downloading it again.

    also, not to be nitpicky, but it’d be great if this was reformatted so that it’s not all different bit rates. otherwise, great mix!
