                       TYDmusic.com Listening Centre: Rare Grooves

Welcome to TYDmusic.com's Listening Center. Here you will find tracks that to me, are pure 'Rare Grooves' in every sense of the word. I would of liked to put the entire songs themselves but due to bandwidth restrictions and the size of the flies, I thought it would be better to just put samples of them. To listen, simply click on the track you'd like to hear. Each track is roughly between 30 seconds to 1 minute long. You will need IE 6.0 and a 'Media Player' to listen to the tracks.
