All good things...

...must come to an end. And so it is with this blog.

Blogger has taken down posts on this blog in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) on several occassions now.

I have always enjoyed posting out of print/hard to find mixes on this blog but when posts disappear into thin air it stops being fun.

A big thank you to everyone who emailed, supported or otherwise contacted me since the start of (I LOVE TO LISTEN TO) DERVISH_NL.

This is really sad, I know how much this blog means to you and the effort you put into it.

Sharing your knowledge and great taste has been a life enhancing benefit to a lot of people, I'm only sorry I came late to the party.

I hope it isn't really the end of course... I can hope...

Big hug from me

Yours was one of the best blogs on Earth - and even if it swan songs with Filter - it always will be one of the best blogs on Earth. Thank you for sharing the lost, beloved, undiscovered out of print gems with us. Your efforts have fired up stereos and lifted spirits all over the world. May the record labels take notice, raid their archives and put all these lost gems back on sale like they deserve to be. No matter where your path takes you, I am honored you shared so much of your journey with us.

I looked forward to seeing your picture almost as much as seeing what you would post for the day. *sigh*

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the efforts to upload and share many of the songs which are not available on mp3. You complete a large part of memory which I have been holding dear but largely missing in my life - the music! It is a shame that you are to close and end the blog...

You have been appreciated from far and away Singapore. ~ chwee

HELLO JOHAN,I AM VERY SADDEN TO HEAR YOU HAVE TO CLOSE THE BLOG. I WILL MISS IT VERY MUCH. IT IS SO SAD THAT IT HAS TO COME TO THIS. MANY OF US MUSIC FANS SUCH AS MYSELF ENJOY AND THANK YOU FOR THE EFFORT AND TIME YOU HAVE TAKEN TO DO THIS BLOG ON A WEEKLY/MONTHLY/DAILY BASIS. I FOR ONE HAVE BEEN A BIG SUPPORTER OF THE BLOG. I HAVE BEEN BUYING MUSIC SINCE MY EARLY CHILDHOOD IN THE 70'S. MANY RECORD STORES HAVE CLOSED IN MY STATE OUT HERE. THE BLOG GAVE ME THE ENJOYMENT THAT I MISSED GOING TO THE MUSIC STORES. IT WAS ALWAYS A SURPRISE TO SEE WHAT TREATS WERE THERE JUST WAITING TO BE SHARE BY MUSIC FANS ALIKE. AND LATELY IT SEEMS AS IF MANY BLOGS ARE DISAPPEARING. I GUESS THE MUSIC FANS STILL DON'T MATTER TO THOSE WHO WANT TO TAKE OUR JOY AND PLEASURE AWAY. I THANK YOU FOR ALL THE MUSIC YOU SHARED WITH US. AND ON A PERSONAL NOTE THANK YOU FOR POSTING/FINDING THE ANNABELLA WAR BOYS AND ADAM ANT VIVA LA ROCK 2 VERY SPECIAL AND HARD TO FIND TRACKS FROM MY CHILD HOOD. JOVANN YOU AND THE BLOG WILL BE MISSED. I THANK YOU AGAIN. I WISH YOU. TAKE CARE. AND THANK YOU AGAIN. A J A/K/A DJMPHACTOR
