  1. grazie per il tuo passaggio, guitar
    sarà contenta nina in quella parte dell’universo in cui continua a interpretare (nina non canta .. nina interpreta ..)
    fiori, fiori per lei

  2. Purtroppo il doppio che ho acquistato è una raccolta di registrazioni che non hanno tutte la stessa qualità sonora.
    Pazienza.
    Buona domenica, v.

  3. ciao val
    benvenuta su for nina.

    comunque è sempre beme portare fiori, fiori per nina, nina simone
