Aug 30, 16 RE10: Early 1950s charts frank merrill
 
Paul H, are you reading this?

Are these surveys that you have in your own collection or possession?

If you can contact me please...
fmerrilljr@yahoo.com

I may want to buy some of these from you.  I am talking about incredible
offers...HISTORIC offers...I'm talking about four-figure stuff in some cases.

Any chance of finding out which Stations you have represented in these?
Aug 30, 16 WBBM Chicago 1982-10-16 / WBBM ( Chicago, Illinois ) Paul H.
 
I've recently come across some WBBM surveys from this time period.  I can now
certainly say that the TW and LW numbers on this chart should be reversed! 
Hopefully I'll be adding a bunch of 1982/83 surveys in the coming weeks.  Thanks!
Aug 28, 16 RE4: Tender Years - John Cafferty Gary Pfeifer
 
 Paul,  Thank you for the additional information and clarification! I did as you
suggested and deleted the "Tell Me I'm Not Dreamin" B side listing, after
transferring the songs to the Jermaine/Michael release, of course.  Thanks for
continuing to keep ARSA as accurate as possible!
Aug 28, 16 RE3: Tender Years - John Cafferty Paul H.
 
Gary, "Tell Me I'm Not Dreamin'" by Jermaine Jackson (with Michael Jackson) was
ineligible to chart on the Billboard Hot 100 at the time because it wasn't
officially released as a 45 rpm single.  Despite that, like all things Michael
Jackson in 1984, it became a big hit at Top 40 radio.  Since Jermaine's album and
first single weren't to be released until mid July, Arista issued a 12" promo and
that's how radio stations played it.  The song later showed up as the B-side to
Jermaine's 1984 singles "Dynamite" (which is where those 6 others are currently
listed) and "Do What You Do" (which doesn't currently show a B-side), so that does
confuse the issue somewhat database-wise.  However, I think that by just listing it
once under Jermaine Jackson (with Michael Jackson) and by deleting it as the B-side
of "Dynamite" (after all it's not shown as the B-side of "Do What You Do") that
should take care of any future problems.  It's always nice to see all entries
listed together where they should be.  Of course, it's up to you how you want to
handle it.  Just my 2 cents!
Aug 27, 16 RE2: Tender Years - John Cafferty Gary Pfeifer
 
 Got the corrections made for the Cheech & Chong and John Cafferty songs.  As for
Cafferty's "Tender Years", it's all straightened out for the moment but with two
listings of the same title both in the same year, I don't see how we can prevent
additional mismatches from occurring prospectively.  Guess this is one we will just
need to revisit periodically to clean up.

 As for the Jermaine Jackson song, is the version with Michael Jackson, which is
shown as a 12" promo, the correct version that got the airplay?  I am lacking
knowledge in this and need to know a little more in order to make accurate
adjustments.  Thanks!
Aug 27, 16 RE: Tender Years - John Cafferty Paul H.
 
Oops, spoke too soon!  The very first chart listing under "On The Dark Side" by John
Cafferty & The Beaver Brown Band (on WXLK) should be listed with the song under the
artist Eddie & The Cruisers from 1983.  Okay...now I'm done!
Aug 27, 16 Tender Years - John Cafferty & The Beaver Brown Band Paul H.
 
Here's another one that you may want to untangle.

Technically, only the very first chart entry listed (from 2/7/84) should be linked
to the 45 on Scotti Brothers 04327.  All the rest should go with the 45 on Scotti
Brothers 04682 as they became popular with the success of the re-release of "On The
Dark Side" (which IS handled 100% correctly in the database).

Okay, I'll stop for now:)
Aug 27, 16 Tell Me I'm Not Dreamin' - Jermaine Jackson Paul H.
 
There are still 6 chart entries for this title under the Jermaine Jackson solo
listings in the database.  I'm pretty certain that those should be grouped with the
hundreds of other entries under the Jermaine Jackson (with Michael Jackson) entry.
Aug 27, 16 Sister Mary Elephant - Cheech & Chong Paul H.
 
Just noticed that some of the late 1973 charts that show "Sister Mary Elephant" by
Cheech & Chong have been sorted with the earlier 1972 "album cut" only release in
the database.  It was clearly available on a 45 by that point.  Don't know if it's
possible to untangle those, just thought I'd bring it to your attention.
Aug 20, 16 RE13: 1948 surveys Gary Pfeifer
 
  Paul - Thanks for all the label info and the correction has been made on the Jo
Stafford song!

  
Aug 20, 16 RE12: 1948 surveys Paul H.
 
Just a quick correction for the database...the Jo Stafford record Ev'ry Day I Love
You (Just A Little More) / This Is The Moment was released on Capitol 15139, not
RCA.
