Subject: Re: Brian Wilson dream

Wow! I had a dream that I had never actually heard that god awful "Pet Sounds
Live" cd, then morning came and reality set in once again. It's been rough, but 
I'm coping with it one day at a time.

I don't know him other either, other than having spoken on the phone to order more of his wonderful lists. Please support his valuable work.

Message: 3 Date: Mon, 12 Aug 2002 08:23:54 -0000 From: Erik Subject: Re: Paul Pelletier's lists Times have changed. It's been 25 years now since he started this & he still has his ass on all these listings & is selling them piece by piece: 5.00 for everything on the Dawn label, 6.00 for Top Rank, another 4.00 for Ember etc. If you bought these listings 20 years ago & you want an update now, you will have to pay for them again....that's what I was told. I don't want to critize Paul Pelletier personally. He once did a fantastic job to gather all these informations (often FREELY supplied by collectors worldwide, by the way), but it's time now to think of something else. Either you publish a book that compiles the listings of all labels, a sort of Record Collector (Non-Price) Guide, or you put everything on the internet... wouldn't that be a wonderful addition to the Spectropop Research Center? There are lots of these "labours of love" available on the net, "Bubblegum The Punk", "Tapestry of Delights" etc. made by enthusiasts who are willin' to share their passion for free with the rest of the world + providing much more than just the standard artist, songs, label, number, year listings (well, isn't that what we actually do here at Spectropop as well?). Even BMI has made a lot of their files available for the public. What about a database in the same vein as the fantastic "Searchin' for Shakes" (database for 60s garage, psych compilations), so that you can sort by artist name! that would be great! I'm a collector myself for more then 20 years & I have gathered a lot of "vital info" etc. by exchanging them with fellow "kindred spirits" from around the world. If you need to know anything, just get in touch with me. E-mails that offer money for info will be disregarded :) Erik -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
