Tasavallan Presidentti - Tasavallan Presidentti II (1970)

The second album from 1970, long out of print and regarded by Jukka Tolonen as the bands best work. Classic progressive rock with great instrumental interplay, tight arrangements, strong melodies and extended solo performances on flute, sax and electric guitar. Flashes of psychedelic rock merge into jazzy instrumental excursions. One of the best Scandinavian albums. Freak Emporium

I am very happy to see a blog with this kind of music. But the password http://ezhevika.blogspot.com/ does not seem to work for about half the people who are leaving comments. Is your blog for PC users only?

MAC users problems were widely discussed in comments - hopefully this will help:

It seems like the trouble is that the files dont work with the "Stuff it expander" applikation on mac os x.

Instead use the applikation UnRarX (download at http://unrarx.sourceforge.net/ ) and it will work.

(dont forget to first write the password before you drag n´drop the file in UnRarX window.

Yes, the problem is not copying the passwords correctly (which everyone seems to be doing) but rather the various unstuffing programs incompatibility with the encrypted files - especially mac osx's apps and older versions of stuffit.

I'll try that, thanks. But FYI I download about 10 RAR's a day through RapidShare, and never have this problem. The only reason I care about this so much, is that I love the kind of music you're sharing here!
