    Curious Monkey!

    Thank you for this donation! You will recieve a postcard from Ghana from me, Jim, when I visit this fall. Send me a name and address, and it is yours. I will tell you what is going on that day and it will be great. Also, you'll get a download card that will allow you to own the .mp3 version of the album. BTW, monkeys are awesome.

    High Life!, Smooth Groove

    Wow, you must love...vinyl records. I know I do. For your niceness and good taste, I will put your name in the Special Acknowledgements section of the liner notes, send you a postcard from Ghana, give you a download card of the record, and you'll receive your very own LP version of the record once it is complete. *NOTE: enough of these need to be requested in order to be pressed. If this does not happen, a CD will be available in its place and you will get a personal letter of thanks from me.
