New Checksums

Postby kirkm » Sun May 20, 2012 5:11 am

Greetings :D

There's a new set of Checksum Files for all posted mp3's and labels.

http://www.britburn.co.uk/files/tools/bbChecksum018.zip

If you use them and find any fails this may mean a newer version is in the library.
Just send a request to britburn@gmail.com

The latest labels are always available from http://www.britburn.co.uk/files/site/labels.php

Cheers - Kirk

Hi Kirk,

I ran a check on my files using the bbChecksum018.zip in combination with Britburn Verify v2.23.

For the fifties I found the following files in the checksums missing on my end:
u52_514 - Alma Cogan - Half As Much.mp3
u52_514 - Guy Lombardo - Half as Much.mp3
u52_514 - Hank Williams - Half As Much.mp3
u52_514 - Lita Roza - Half As Much.mp3
u55_132a UP - Jimmy Shand Band - Bluebell Polka.mp3
u55_131b - Ferko String Band - Sing A Little Melody.mp3
u58_188a - David Whitfield - The Right To Love.mp3
u59_623a - Tommy Dee & Carol Kay - Three Stars.mp3

The following file is failing the checksum:
u58_178a - Bobby Day - Rockin' Robin.mp3

Any chance of a repost? I will be checking my 60's and 70's files later this weekend.

Thanks in advance and keep up the good work!

Best regards,
RonnieV

Hi Ronnie,

Can you re-do the check with v019 and see if the results change. I'll post those anyway, but you may not need them all. 55_132a UP is a potential upgrade and I couldn't decide if it, or the 80k original version was the best ! 500 series are sheetmusic files still being processed/collected and there's not been an official post yet.

Cheers - Kirk

Hi Kirk,

Thanks a million, I grabbed the posted tracks and my fifties collection now fully matches the v019 checksums!

I ran some checks on the eighties as well and found the the following results:

Missing files:
u80_042abert - The Nolans - I'm In The Mood For Dancing.mp3
u80_351aUPa - Billy Joel - All For Leyna.mp3

Failing checkums:
u80_278a - John Foxx - Underpass.mp3
u80_298b - The Monkees - Monkees (EP) - 02 - Last Train To Clarksville.mp3
u80_298c - The Monkees - Monkees (EP) - 03 - Daydream Believer.mp3
u80_541a - Laurel Aitken & The Unitone - Rudy Got Married.mp3
u82_281a - Sylvester with Patrick Cowley - Do You Wanna Funk.mp3
u82_316a - Theatre Of Hate - Do You Believe In The Westworld.mp3
u82_472a - Junior - I Can't Help It [POOR].mp3

Should the following still be in the checksum/collection?
u80_042aWrong - The Nolans - I'm In The Mood For Dancing.mp3
u81_011awrong - Soft Cell - Tainted Love.mp3

I hope to do the 60's and 70's later today.

Cheers,
Ronnie

Hi Ronnie,

I've just posted the ones that failed... the other 4 probably should be removed from the library and the checksum. Bert will know for sure, we'll get this sorted asap. Those additional bits in the filename usually are temporary while a track is confirmed, or binned.

Hi Ronnie,

Thanks for the feedback... I'll post your missing ones and also clean up the checksums.

Basically, anything odd in the filename probably indicates an upgrade or reject, and ideally should be removed from the library before the checksums are done. But they're not always... the process is automatic - whatever is in the folder gets included. But you're finding them and that's good.

The .bb file is just text, and its possible to edit and resave them. Ideally they'll never be wrong, and I'll try harder! :D

Cheers - Kirk

Ronnie, if you don't mind can you stand by for a couple of days for those 1960s files? The 1974 set is currently posting and I'll do it right after that (if no-one else does in the meantime).

No problem off course!

As a matter of fact I'm already listening to the first 1974 files as we speak :D

Hi Ronnie,

I'm just about to post your batch of failing checksums to the 60s group. Most of those showing as Missing are actually sheetmusic tracks inadvertently included when the checksums were last created.

They exist mainly to do spreadsheet testing with, no sheetmusic post has been made yet and no years are even close to completion. Once the 1970s are finished, all going well Bert will take over with the 1980s+ distribution and Tel & I will focus on 1936-1965, hopefully with theDoctor(GB) and anyone else interested.

If you do want the sheetmusic ones marked as Missing, no worries, but I'll send you links rather than post as they may cause a bit of confusion being so incomplete.

Cheers - Kirk

Hi Kirk,

Thanks once again; I just grabbed the files and completed a couple of years again.

My current status is:

Missing:
u60_331a - Johnny Carson - You Talk Too Much.mp3
u60_331b - Johnny Carson - Now And Always.mp3
u65_447b - Adam, Mike & Tim - Summer's Here Again.mp3
u65_464b - The Foresters - Lonely Boy.mp3
u65_471b - The Hi-Lites - Groovey.mp3
u65_482b - Val Doonican - Much Too Much.mp3
u65_493b - The Caesars - Can You Blame Me.mp3
u65_506b - New Faces - You'll Be Too late.mp3
u73_317b - Lynsey De Paul - Blind Leading The Blind.mp3
u73_341b - Ricky Wilde - Round And Round.mp3
u73_363b - Dan The Banjo Man - Everything Will Rhyme.mp3

Failing:
u66_082b - Cilla Black - The Right One Is Left.mp3
u67_172b - Cilla Black - Over My Head.mp3
u67_181b - Cilla Black - From Now On.mp3
u69_043b - Cilla Black - London Bridge.mp3
u69_225b - Johnny Johnson & The Bandwagon - I Ain't Lyin'.mp3
u73_252a - The Temptations - Law Of The Land.mp3
u73_312a - Billy Preston - Will It Go Round In Circles.mp3

I understand your remark on the Sheetmusic ones and the confusion a partial posting might cause. Probably the missing 1965 and 1966 files are also extra's that haven't been posted yet?

Now checking the years 1975 to 1979 while listening to 1974 ;-)

Cheers,
Ronnie
