I found one for the mac here at work, but I couldn't get it to play files. It got weird. So I agree with Will...

I got the program MacAmp and tried playing these. The first works, but I can't play "Devil..".

By the way, I guess I didn't send my introduction to the right place earlier. Here we go: My name is Bill, I live in Maryland (moved here recently). I first got into the Jazz Butcher about 4 years ago - I was in a mall record store and checking out the cut-out tape racks (I find the greatest stuff in cutouts!) and noticed a tape (Big Planet Scarey Planet) and thought the name "Jazz Butcher" sounded interesting. You can't lose on 50 cents, so I took it home and loved it. So now most of my JB collection is on tape, and I haven't had a lot of luck finding CDs. My favorite JB albums are "Bloody Nonsense" and "Big Planet Scarey Planet."

Many thanks for putting the sound files up - it was great! Too bad I couldn't go to the west coast...
