Thanks, at the very least we then have confirmation of the time and something to compare "finds" with, best case it's an early fade of the longer album version which we can rip from CD and replicate. Therefore rips always welcome!

Hi

I have the missing Blues Band track - Ain't It Tuff. It's 2m 30secs in length. Is this of use?

Hi Bassman,

Having received the vinyl through the post the other day, but thanks to poor packaging and an over-zealous postman, snapped in two, yes please! The label times the track at 2.23 so yours is probably the correct version - when I get time I'll glue the bits together to at least get a comparison rip.

Many thanks

Many thanks.

Just Status Quo and the Reading Choir to find now, I believe.

Currently 64 tracks under investigation for single version status, 201 believed to be correct version but below 320k and 386 believed to be the correct version and at 320k (1 in pretty poor shape though). I'll try and post a spreadsheet with full details including labels and lyrics at the weekend.

OK, finally managed to pick up a copy of this ... all being well it'll arrive in one piece in the next couple of days and that makes at least a version of some sort of every track. Still quite a few left to dig out the proper single version, but it's a start!

Hi Eurofan,

The latest status is regularly updated here http://www.britburn.co.uk/Britburn_1980.html ... the anomoly list is here http://www.britburn.co.uk/Britburn_1980_Wanted_Version.html

Once the anomolies are (mostly) eradicated then we can post, so any help from anyone in filling the gaps will speed things up!

Hi Bert,

I've found one off your anomoly list "u80_389a - William DeVaughn - Be Thankful For What You've Got". It's from a compilation CD called Love Power 2 and is the correct length but unfortunately it only ripped at 128kbps. I've posted it on the 80's newsgroup and also included the Lyrics.

Cheers
Glinty

Small update - I'm back on the 80's and have just completed the first draft of the release version for 1985.

Done 3797 releases
A Time 94.57%
A Author 100%
A Producer 98.58%
B Title 100%
B Time 89.91%
B Author 96.39%
B Producer 93.39%

Remaining 2574 releases
Of these, done already
A Time 32.44%
A Author 100%
A Producer 41.69%
B Title 46.50%
B Time 30.42%
B Author 42.27%
B Producer 36.40%

So I reckon about 1600 or so to check, which I hope to complete by the end of next week, give or take...

Bert

I have ripped a few of the incorrect versions from 7" and the timings are as follows, minus any run-in/out:

Cockney Rejects - The Greatest Cockney Rip-Off 2:06
The Plasmatics - Butcher Baby 3:22
The Buggles - Elstree 4:06
The Cure - A Forest 3:55
UB40 - King 4:15

So "Elstree" and "A Forest" are needed by my reckoning. Should I upload these to Usenet as flac? What about the others (and the CD rips I mentioned to Bert by email)?

I came across a correct copy of A Forest yesterday, by chance, but it's only 192k. Upload or e-mail anything you rip, if you can, it'll all be useful either as a drop in, replacement, or simply to confirm a CD rip is the same version.

Cheers,
