Sep 15, 14 "I Want To Take You Higher" - Sly & The Family Stone Paul Haney
 
Some of the 1970 re-entries are sorting with the original 1969 release of this song.

 All taken care of.  Thanks, Cary!

Let Them Talk by John Gary on the 5-30-1959 KXOK singles survey is not in the data
base, and is incorrectly linked to Let Them Talk by Johnny Preston from 1961.
Sep 13, 14 RE: I Hate To Do This Again But..... Tim Warden
 
Jeff, thanks for point out the mismatches -- I fixed them. No "sorry" needed: with
everyone's help the database only becomes more accurate even as it is growing at an
astonishing rate.

Sep 12, 14 I Hate To Do This Again But..... J. A. Theroux
 
I found another title that has an issue...Edwin Starr's Stop The War Now has 9
surveys directing to it that have the title War in them but are directing to this
title instead.  This one doesn't seem to have any rhyme or reason to it.
Sep 12, 14 RE: Peter Skellern/Brownsville Station Gary Pfeifer
 
 Paul,

   Took care of them.  There are a ton of songs that have and will require a
modification to the year of release in order to match under the new, tighter
matching algorithm.  We're taking care of them as soon as we can after they arise.
Sep 12, 14 Peter Skellern/Brownsville Station Paul Haney
 
Gary,

There's a couple of more songs in the database that need a year change: "You're A
Lady" by Peter Skellern and "The Red Back Spider" by Brownsville Station, they
should both be changed to 1972.

Thanks!
Sep 11, 14 KYA San Francisco RE: 1970-05-18 / KYA ( San Francisco, California ) Gary Pfeifer
 
   Figured out an easy way to handle the Jackson 5 mismatch so that's all done!

   However, even with the new algorithms, entries of "ABC" as "A B C" and "A-B-C"
are still directing to "Christmas Won't Be The Same This Year" for some reason. 
Tim will need to address this issue.
Sep 11, 14 Jackson 5, Donovan & Dawn Gary Pfeifer
 
  J.A. & Paul,

   Thanks for pointing out the anomalies and duplications. I took care of the
Donovan and Dawn situations but the Jackson 5 one will require more time to
straighten out.  It will be done tho and with Tim's newly implemented tighter
matching algorithm, hopefully this mismatch will no longer occur.
Sep 11, 14 "You're A Lady" - Dawn Paul Haney
 
I was wondering why this title got the "red dot" when I entered it.  Turns out that
this title was already under the artist Dawn Featuring Tony Orlando, but the year
was 1973, instead of 1972 (which is the correct release year).  Anyway, it's now in
the database twice (once under Dawn and once under Dawn Featuring Tony Orlando) and
should only be in once as it's on a few different surveys.
Sep 11, 14 Donovan/Goo Goo Barabajagal J. A. Theroux
 
Gary/Tim,

There is a duplication of the Donovan title Goo Goo Barabajagal (Love Is Hot) in
the singles database, one has the correct longer title and is credited to Donovan
(with the Jeff Beck Group), the other is listed only as Barabajagal (Love Is Hot)
and credited only to Donovan, but both have the same catalog number (Epic 10510). 
The confusion probably stems from some surveys listing the title only as
Barabajagal. Right now only four surveys are listed under the truncated title, just
wanted to let you know.
Sep 11, 14 KYA San Francisco 1970-05-18 / KYA ( San Francisco, California ) J. A. Theroux
 
Gary/Tim,

When I entered ABC by the Jackson Five for this survey, I spelled it A-B-C as it
appears on the original survey.  However, when I clicked on the title it directed
to the song Christmas Won't Be The Same This Year, then I found there are several
charts from March, April and May of 1970 listed under this title.  I clicked on a
few of these and found they all contained the title ABC, but spelled either A-B-C
or A B C.  Apparently it only matches up properly when you don't add dashes or
spaces inbetween the letters ABC.  I fixed my survey posting of ABC easily enough
but I just wanted to let you know there are several more that are incorrect as I
have described.
Sep 9, 14 KYMS Santa Ana RE: 1971-05-17 / KYMS ( Santa Ana, California ) Gary Pfeifer
 
   The 1971 Earth, Wind & Fire album was not in the database resulting in the
mismatch.  It's now been added and matches fine.  Thanks!
Sep 9, 14 KYMS Santa Ana 1971-05-17 / KYMS ( Santa Ana, California ) Paul Haney
 
For some reason the Earth, Wind & Fire album on this 1971 chart is sorting with the
1978 release The Best Of Earth, Wind & Fire, Vol. I.  The one on this chart is
their first album from 1971 on WB 1905.
Sep 8, 14 KEWB San Francisco RE2: 1961-04-22 / KEWB ( San Francisco, California ) J. A. Theroux
 
Thank you, Gary!
Sep 8, 14 KEWB San Francisco RE: 1961-04-22 / KEWB ( San Francisco, California ) Gary Pfeifer
 
  Thank you for letting us know about that duplication/error. I merged both entries
into one with the correct Link-Eddy Combo designation.
Sep 8, 14 KEWB San Francisco 1961-04-22 / KEWB ( San Francisco, California ) J. A. Theroux
 
I found something unusual while checking out the titles for this survey I
posted...there are two artist entries in the ARSA database for the song Big Mr. C,
one by the Link Eddie Combo, the other by Link-Eddy Combo (the latter is the
correct name), both have the same catalog number (Reprise 20002).  The group
consisted of Ed Cobb of the Four Preps and their session pianist Lincoln Mayorga,
they also recorded as the Piltdown Men and had hits in the UK in the early 60's
under that name.
Sep 6, 14 KLIV San Jose RE3: 1964-09-04 / KLIV ( San Jose, California ) J. A. Theroux
 
BTW, thanks for fixing the chart!
Sep 5, 14 KLIV San Jose RE2: 1964-09-04 / KLIV ( San Jose, California ) J. A. Theroux
 
Actually I wasn't that surprised, at that time the Beach Boys were hitting their
stride in terms of popularity and that may have generated interest in their back
catalog.  Also, KLIV played a lot of surf music, or surf pop if you will, back
then.
Sep 5, 14 KLIV San Jose RE: 1964-09-04 / KLIV ( San Jose, California ) Gary Pfeifer
 
    Made the correction so it now matches to "Surfin'",  Odd that a 1964 survey
would show the 1962 song "Surfin'" as a 'Klimber'.
