Errors / Typos in the playlist

Knowing most of the rabid listeners are as anal as I am, I thought I'd start a thread where we can point out mistakes in the playlist, i.e. songs mis-titled, typos, and other errors.

For example: Camel Who Are We s/b Who We Are
or: Steve Morse listed as: Morse Band, The Steve and: Morse, Steve
I know there are a couple of Sigur Ros songs mislabeled (Mossy, help me here)

Not trying to be critical; I know what it's like to manage a large a database. If the mistakes are brought to light, perhaps they can fixed over time.

excellent

Excellent, Steady Stan! I'm glad I'm not the only one! To fill you in, there is already a thread about this. It's here:
Library Corrections and Inconsistencies


Secondly, I think all the Sigur Ros is correct. I know Von, Angels of the Universe, and ( ) are, because I donated those. The only think I can think of that might be the corrections you are thinking of is that little symbol that looks like a defored "d" with a cross in it. It is pronounced "th" and so I put that pronunciation in the place of the "deformed d" because it's not a normal character. If you know of something else, I'd like to know it too!

OK OK I'll pile on

I did remember one. Finch's "A Passion Condensed" is listed as "A Passion Condenser".

Is a Passion Condenser a device put on a car to keep one's daughter from staying out of the back seat???

Two More

the track by Magnetophone called "Oh Darlin'" is in the library twice. One is 2:01 in length and one is 2:04 in length. Maybe the first one cuts off too soon?


I've posted this before, but here goes again. That controversial 9-piece from Montreal on the Kranky label is called
Godspeed You Black Emperor!
not
Godspeed! You Black Emperor


The two Tony Palacios songs "Epic Tales of Whoa!" and "Late Night" are crossed referenced. "Epic" is Late Night and "Late Night" is Epic.

I think Avian has it right, for the moment.

At some point they moved their ! for no apparent reason.

Exclamations without explanations...

don't forget

about the other corrections mentioned. Seems like everything in these forums gravitates back to Godspeed.

How about Goodness You're Boring Everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Then insert exclamations as you see fit.

sigur

Yes, Stan.

There is indeed an error in the sigur ros listings. Agaetis Byrjun is listed as Olsen Olsen.

I assume what is listed as Agaetis Byrjun is, in fact, Olsen Olsen.
Will do a request on it just to make sure.

double double tracks tracks

I noticed that KBB's "Hatenaki Shoudou" is listed twice, with a one-second difference in the timing.

Same deal with Salem Hill's "Sweet Hope Suite" but that one presumably has the track with and without the silence/bonus track at the end.

One more... Rick Wakeman's "Bedtime Stories" just played, but it was titled "Beadtime Stories" ... just a typo, I'm sure.

Avian, are you hanging out with Mary Jane today? That link brings up a pic that cleary says Godspeed You Black Emperor!

Secondly, thier homepage is here. I have all thier cds. I just looked them over to make sure. On F#A#(infinity), Slow Riot For New Zero Kanada, and Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven, thier name was "Godspeed You Black Emperor!" On thier last album, Yanqui U.X.O., they changed thier name to "Godspeed You! Black Emperor." So some websites have the first one and some of them have the last one.


I think the difference is this. The first three releases are on Kranky and the last one is on Southern. My guess is that it's a contractural thing and they couldn't record with Southern under GYBE! and had to rename themselves, so they picked GY!BE. Similar to the way Styx had to re-record "Lady" as "Lady '95" to get it on thier Greatest Hits album.

So my ideal would be to have all of the tracks listed as GYBE!, because if the bands was indexed both ways, two Godspeed tracks could play very close together because SAM would read it as two seperate artists.

sigh

Like the man said, look at the page title. That would be the thing at the top of the browser window. The pic on that page may be from the old version of the band, or it really is a letter from a fan, as it appears to be, and he just exclaimed his greeting. Nonetheless, delve further into the site, http://www.cstrecords.com/html/godtourdates.html for instance, and you'll see that the ! has indeed moved consistently to after the You.

WoW! touchy!



I just edited my post. Here's the new part


"I think the difference is this. The first three releases are on Kranky and the last one is on Southern. My guess is that it's a contractural thing and they couldn't record with Southern under GYBE! and had to rename themselves, so they picked GY!BE.

PS, Rick, how bout I give you all of GYBE! cds on your birthday?

Explore the webpage indeed...

f#a# infinity
Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven



Oh, and I must correct myself. All thier releases do appear to be on Constellation, a Kranky label. So the name change was not, as I speculated, contracturally motivated.


Anyway, the final analysis, as I move on to other things, is that 3 albums are Emperor! and one is You!. Th.thh. thh. that's all folks.

but in all seriousness, please continue to point these things out. We fix them from time to time.

Dual songs usually results from having one song from a sampler or something, then I acquire the entire CD. I try to delete the duplicate, don't always remember.

Godspeed! You Black Emperor was my mistake, but I know I've seen the exclamation point after the G - I think they're trying to make up for their obvious lack of musical talent by being creative in naming themselves. Talk! about pretentious...
