A True Gem of the Web

If you like us love music, specifically if you love having your ears mind aesthetics and heart opened and fed by true Music, then you like us will be jump-up-and-down-yelling happy to discover the wonderful web adventure Pathway to Unknown Worlds

Appearing in blog format, each post (there were 30 in April, 59[!] in March) begins with some text about, and concludes with a link to download a great album or occasionally a concert film. the site's creator, a being who goes by the name of bumkuncha, has exquisite taste and a great record collection (i guess!)

also note that the site's Link list is extremely valuable: it seems like these must be the best music blogs on the web. if you've ever tried to use somebody's link list...you'll appreciate bumkuncha's curatorship. all are live, active sites sharing education and beautiful vibrations. actually the link list alone would make Pathway a jewel.

Wow! What a post! Thanks!
Indeed I have a big record collection, but on vinyl, which I'm really too lazy to rip. Most of the stuff I'm posting is just rareties I found over the last years on the net, mostly "relaunches" of long closed blogs or dead links.
...and the highly praised link list, well it's just the one I use personally, therefore I try to keep it "live and active" and delete dead links. It's more that I wonder why so much other music bloggers don't try to keep their link list up-to-date...

Hello, I know this is totally random, but I’m trying to get an email address for bunkuncha of nightofthepurplemoon. His(?) oustanding blog has just gone to invitation only and I’d like to keep reading it.
Thanks, Charlie
