RE: Gramofile - please can we have it back?

It would be very nice to have the online PDF Archive of prior issues back.  It used to be very simple to access and download entire past issues for free, and find reviews and articles that way.  

You used to be able to download issues as single PDF files by...

(1) logging in to the site at   http://www.gramophone.net/   and then 

(2) in any open browser window - in the address field/box, entering in a URL based on this pattern: 

http://www.gramophone.net/Issue/Pdf/Month 4-digit-year/ 

and then press the return key (on the keyboard).   

E.g., if you wanted the March 1983 issue, the URL would be 

http://www.gramophone.net/Issue/Pdf/March 1983/

 

Or if you wanted the June 2001 issue, you'd enter:

http://www.gramophone.net/Issue/Pdf/June 2001/

You'd enter the URL for the issue you wanted, and then download it to your computer, for free.  Some of the issues (I had downloaded a couple, but wish I had gotten more!) are very interesting to read - not just for the information they contain, but also, more broadly, shed some insight on the times when the issue was published. 

Gramophone, could you please bring the above back?  OR -- could Gramophone make available for sale on this site (or sites like amazon.co.uk, etc.) a CD-ROM set of the back issues (these would contain all the PDFs that used to be available for free) that people can buy?  (National Geographic magazine did this same thing - sold a CD-ROM set of their back issues, going back to the first issue.)
