Aloha all!
Recently got turned on to this amazing album and was wondering if anyone knew of a nice, clean (reasonably) copy of this album available digitally for download anywhere? I found one but it is low bit rate and pretty noisy.
Thanks for any help!

I have a download of this I got off of Xtabay's blog some twelve to fifteen years or so ago. It's pretty good, but I no longer have the album scans. I was using dial up then and it took over four hours for one thirty minute album to download. I could put it on a thumb drive (send one) maybe if you can't find it elsewhere. I have a poop load of stuff from that site and others that I could include, so if you need anything else on there, holler.
If you'd like it on a cd-r I could just send you one. I use Windows media so there might be a slight loss of harmonics to purists. Send me a private response with your address. There's usually room for a second album on a cd-r also, so again, just ask.

This is a pretty good album begging for a CD release. Someone posted the entire album on Youtube. If you're clever you can dupe it off and separate the tracks and... voila!

Go here:

https://my-free-mp3.net/

type in "Phil Moore," and scroll way down for the tracks from Paradise. You will have to download each track individually, just click on "download" to the right. Don't know if it's the complete album.

Wasn't familiar with this album, but I'm listening to these tracks now - nice!

Hey Mr. Fab,
That site is a gold mine. Just lost an entire evening hunting!
Here's the front and back album covers for anyone looking.

This is a great album. Thanks too for the tip on the website (where I was able to find another elusive album I’d been curious to hear). Interesting though, that the sleeve calls track 5 “Pearls of Paradise” but there it’s called “Pearls of Palmyra”, which matches this image of a label from Discogs.

Whatever happened to Xtabay's blog? I downloaded a lot of music from Xtabay. I rip my own vinyl to digital but Xtabay was a great place to get digital versions of albums I couldn't find on eBay or in thrift stores.
