The compilations that I post here were originally made for my own enjoyment and that of my family, but out of the generosity of my heart I want to share them with the world ! They are made with tracks from my own vinyl collection but also from tracks that I've collected trough the years from all over the internet. It's impossible to credit the original poster, but consider yourself utterly thanked.

Meanwhile I added this 'globe' thingy to my blog. I thought it fun to see where in the world the music of Monsieur Maurice is appreciated.  After a few days I noticed something strange...
The green dots are people that visited the blog... but notice the green dot south of Africa in the middle of the Southern Ocean...

Who's that ??? Where does he live ??? On a boat ???
If you are the mystery visitor please come forward in the comment section. I would love to know where you are.
