I don't think the button next to my tune is working :)
edit: seems like it is working. My mum must be online then. :)

Just had a listen to all of the tracks & I think it's gonna be really hard to choose 3. All excellent works!

I still need to listen and cast my vote but I'm playing at a mini music fest this weekend so it'll be a few days. Can't wait to listen to them!

Don't rush me; I'll get there before the guillotine comes down (I hope...). That'll be 10 voters, which is about average. I'd discount the 'thousands' of members, anyway, in the same fashion that I discount the hundreds of ads in the Marketplace flagged as 'On hold' since Noah built his ark..! Stats are worthless, as we well know.
If all of the participants vote, that good going, I reckon (and some may not, for various reasons... ;) ).

I will be listening tomorrow, so another three votes from me.
After all, I don't fancy leaving my head in a wicker basket.
I have been legless a few times in the distant past, but headless ? That's a whole new ball game.
:o

Doubt you'll be headless. You'll be too high. The rate your track is going you will be heads, hands and feet above all of us.

Some beautiful pieces in this month's collection. Toughest choice yet, my shortlist wasn't short by any stretch of the imagination.

I've yet to vote, but I will be. It's hard to choose just 3 from this lot!

[quote name='MoonBassAlpha' timestamp='1472567101' post='3122175']...what is the greatest number of entries in a month?
[/quote]

Three times, 15 entries, in 2013, 2015 and early this year. Lowest was 4, July 2014 (holidays..?). Normally between 10-12, with a slight dip in the summer period. Overall healthy, I'd say, with a fairly consistent following of regulars, with the exception of one month where a very fine bass was on offer as a prize, and the voting was quite massive in comparison. An inquiry as to how to better promote the subject found that promotion was considered rather too invasive; folks participate (by offering an entry or by voting...) or not, and it's counter-productive to even [i]try [/i]to raise more interest or awareness. Those that [i]do [/i]participate find it great fun, in general, and that's the main thing.
Does that quell your curiosity..? B)

Voted..... Mr Lurksalot has ruined my life. I can't stop singing his song and although I would probably chuck a brick at him if I met him he still deserved a vote. I can't say I liked them all, however, they were all well put together. Excellent piece by mr lowdown also, well done to all and hopefully I'll put an entry in next month.

This month has shown a fantastic insight to the inspiration drawn from the picture , from massive inclusivity in a social sense, isolation in a personal sense and some superb contemplative overviews , it has produced the whole gamut ,from fun and frivolous to serious soundtracks and a few in between , quality absolute.
