Queen - The Ultimate Singles Collection (BF Edition)

Someone asked me a few days ago for some Queen and I found that my Queen collection needed upgrading. I like Queen and respect them even more, but I seldom listen to them. They are (IMO) masters of managing their brand. Is it right that they make hundreds of millions of $$ by careful management and marketing their back catalog? I dunno. I just remember that when these came out back in the day, their albums alternated between really good and run of the mill.

Nevertheless, I took the four singles box sets and compiled them into one playlist, tagging each track with artwork. After doing a little research, I found that their box sets had some omissions and inaccuracies. I added in the missing singles and I still wasn't satisfied with the results.

I considered whether to expand it to solo singles and also expand it to today. The solo singles made it,  but the collection ended it where it should: when John Deacon finally threw in the towel and also the last of Freddie Mercury's singles were issued.

So in this set you'll find every Queen single and EP through the '90s. As well, all solo singles/EPs are included. Very few guest appearances are included because it wasn't really the work of Queen or of its members. All of these are correct single versions. A few were very hard to find. Each track is tagged with original art, both "A" and "B". Every track is @320 and many were freshly converted from FLAC files

The was probably more work than it was worth. We'll see. I'm not always the best judge of what people like. Truthfully, most of these projects I make for myself and some friends on a private forum. As I said earlier, I'm personally not the biggest fan so I guess this set wasn't for me. \But I do I hope you all enjoy it!!

The Jimi Hendrix Masters Part Two: Live


Here's part two and the completion of the project of organizing Jimi's officially recorded output. Now the fan can finally make sense of and find context for his complete career.

One of the personal benefits for me in compiling these projects is that it sets me off onto an exploration of the subject. Most often, I don't know where it will lead, but very often, my understanding of the project has considerably changed by the time it's posted. In this case - the live masters - it's not how much has been released. It's how haphazardly it has been and continues to be released -  as you will soon see.

Here are some notes about how this was compiled. I followed the same format as the studio set and  any or all parts will mesh together:

19700530-01- Blue Suede Shoes [Rehearsal] (In The West LP)
[Year][Month][Date]-[performance order] - Song Title (Original Release)

Part Nine - Live Polydor/Reprise (1966-74)
Part Ten - Live Alan Douglas (1975-95)
Part Eleven - Live Experience Hendrix (1997-Pres) (BF Additions are here too!)
Part Twelve - Live Dagger Records
Part Thirteen - Live Session Man

I followed record releases, but where possible I used one source. Let me illustrate using one day as an example. You'll see what I mean about Jimi being ill-served by those charged with his recorded legacy
Part Nine - Live Polydor/Reprise (1966-74)
19700530-01- Blue Suede Shoes [Rehearsal] (In The West LP)
19700530-03- Johnny B. Goode (First Show) (In The West LP)
19700530-15- Lover Man (In The West LP)
19700530-22- Purple Haze (Soundtrack Recordings from the Film)

Add in Part Ten - Live Alan Douglas (1975-95)
19700530-01- Blue Suede Shoes [Rehearsal] (In The West LP)
19700530-03- Johnny B. Goode (First Show) (In The West LP)
19700530-07- Freedom [First Show] (Jimi Plays Berkeley CD Single)
19700530-10- Ezy Ryder [First Show] (Band of Gypsys 2 LP)
19700530-15- Lover Man (In The West LP)
19700530-16- Stone Free (Band of Gypsys 2 LP)
19700530-17- Hey Joe (The Jimi Hendrix Concerts CD)
19700530-19- Machine Gun (Johnny B. Goode LP)
19700530-22- Purple Haze (Soundtrack Recordings from the Film)

And you'd think adding Part Eleven - Live Experience Hendrix (1997-Pres) would complete the Berkeley recordings, right? Wrong!
19700530-01- Blue Suede Shoes [Rehearsal] (In The West LP)
19700530-03- Johnny B. Goode (First Show) (In The West LP)
19700530-07- Freedom [First Show] (Jimi Plays Berkeley CD Single)
19700530-07- Red House [First Show] (West Coast Seattle Boy CD)
19700530-10- Ezy Ryder [First Show] (Band of Gypsys 2 LP)
19700530-12- Introduction (Live at Berkeley: 2nd Show CD)
19700530-13- Pass It On (Straight Ahead) (Live at Berkeley: 2nd Show CD)
19700530-14- Hey Baby (New Rising Sun) (Live at Berkeley: 2nd Show CD)
19700530-15- Lover Man (In The West LP)
19700530-16- Stone Free (Band of Gypsys 2 LP)
19700530-17- Hey Joe (The Jimi Hendrix Concerts CD)
19700530-18- I Don't Live Today (Live at Berkeley: 2nd Show CD)
19700530-19- Machine Gun (Johnny B. Goode LP)
19700530-20- Foxey Lady (Live at Berkeley: 2nd Show CD)
19700530-21- Star-Spangled Banner (Live at Berkeley: 2nd Show CD)
19700530-22- Purple Haze (Soundtrack Recordings from the Film)
19700530-23- Voodoo Child (Slight Return) (Live at Berkeley: 2nd Show CD)

because both shows were recorded with very little song overlap, it's clear both were intended for a concert film/multi-record set. The first show has already trickled out over four different releases. So on certain occasions, such as this, the Band Of Gypsys concerts, the Winterland Concerts, and Woodstock, I completed these with BF Additions. That way, major concerts have complete shows. There's not a lot of them. They were added when I thought it was called for; to fill in details that are missing from important commercial releases.

With BF Additions:
19700530-01- Blue Suede Shoes [Rehearsal] (In The West LP)
19700530-02- Fire [First Show] (BF Addition)
19700530-03- Johnny B. Goode (First Show) (In The West LP)
19700530-04- Hear My Train A'Comin' [First Show] (BF Addition)
19700530-05- Foxy Lady [First Show] (BF Addition)
19700530-06- Machine Gun [First Show] (BF Addition)
19700530-07- Freedom [First Show] (Jimi Plays Berkeley CD Single)
19700530-08- Red House [First Show] (West Coast Seattle Boy CD)
19700530-09- Message to Love [First Show] (BF Addition)
19700530-10- Ezy Ryder [First Show] (Band of Gypsys 2 LP)
19700530-11- Voodoo Chile (Slight Return) [First Show] (BF Addition)
19700530-12- Introduction (Live at Berkeley: 2nd Show CD)
19700530-13- Pass It On (Straight Ahead) (Live at Berkeley: 2nd Show CD)
19700530-14- Hey Baby (New Rising Sun) (Live at Berkeley: 2nd Show CD)
19700530-15- Lover Man (In The West LP)
19700530-16- Stone Free (Band of Gypsys 2 LP)
19700530-17- Hey Joe (The Jimi Hendrix Concerts CD)
19700530-18- I Don't Live Today (Live at Berkeley: 2nd Show CD)
19700530-19- Machine Gun (Johnny B. Goode LP)
19700530-20- Foxey Lady (Live at Berkeley: 2nd Show CD)
19700530-21- Star-Spangled Banner (Live at Berkeley: 2nd Show CD)
19700530-22- Purple Haze (Soundtrack Recordings from the Film)
19700530-23- Voodoo Child (Slight Return) (Live at Berkeley: 2nd Show CD)
Now both shows are complete and the first show is a fine performance! Why has only half of it been released?

Also importantly, I used the same source for a group of concerts, so wherever possible, they can be enjoyed with consistent mixes. So that the above 19700530-15- Lover Man (In The West LP), 19700530-16- Stone Free (Band of Gypsys 2 LP), 19700530-17- Hey Joe (The Jimi Hendrix Concerts CD), 19700530-19- Machine Gun (Johnny B. Goode LP), and 19700530-22- Purple Haze (Soundtrack Recordings from the Film) are all sourced from Experience Hendrix's Live at Berkeley: 2nd Show CD. I've found that in most cases, the more current the mix, the more likely it is to have better sound.

The exceptions are the Band Of Gypsys LP, because these are the just about the only recordings mixed and edited by Jimi himself and Live at Monterey because the Experience Hendrix version is dull sounding. I used the 1986 Alan Douglas produced CD.

It's likely that there will be a few errors. If you find any please note it in the comments and I'll get 'em fixed!

The Jimi Hendrix Masters Part One: Studio

This is a project that I'm really excited to create and happy to share - (nearly) all of Hendrix's officially released studio recordings presented in chronological order in such a way that the listener can go in as deep as they like. Special care has been taken to present these in the highest possible quality. Original singles are in mono as well as most of AYE. Axis uses the rare 1985 CD that Prof. Stoned loves, and it is really good. Electric LL is from a Blu-Spec disc and the rest have been carefully chosen. It's @320, each track is tagged with original release art.

So let me try to explain how this work - I'm posting eight parts that are as follows:
01 - Studio Masters Polydor-Reprise (1966-74)
02 - Studio Masters Alan Douglas (1975-95)
03 - Studio Masters Experience Hendrix 1 (Unique Songs) (1997-Now)
04 - Studio Masters Experience Hendrix 2 (Jams & Alternates)
05 - Studio Masters Dagger Records
06 - Radio and TV
07 - Session Man

See how the different parts fit? Imagine what it's like when it's all finished! So what I have done so far is to put the different parts into my smartphone and added the folders I wanted into a playlist. For me, it's worked really well. If you're using a PC and something like Foobar2000, just add the folders you want and click on the Track Title Tab to reorder them all together correctly. I've tested different Apps/Programs and have been able to make it work without trouble. Personally, I'm diggin' parts 1-3 put together. I've reconfigured this in a few different ways.  It'll be even more interesting once the live part is completed.

Most importantly, all of Hendrix's are all put together in order, as it was created. a whole lot of clarity and new insights here. I don't know why no one ever tried it. An MSWord document is included in the first folder. Jimi often worked on a track over many studio sessions. The date selected is (I believe) when recording the track was completed.

I hope you like it, as you can probably tell, I'm pretty excited about it.

Elvis Costello - Forty-Five: The Singles & EPs 1977-2010



A long time ago on these pages or similar, I posted EC's Singles 1-2-3 with the bonus tracks separated into a fourth folder. Here's an update to that attempt to correct my mistakes from that old post, omissions from the Singles 1-2-3 box sets and expand it to Elvis' most recent singles/EPs with new material. My criteria is to include all of his unique songs released on 7/10/12" vinyl, CD 3s/CD5s or digital download. To ensure that set is listenable, 12-inch remixes, most live bonus tracks or song duplications were left off. One of these days, I'll make a companion that includes these plus film soundtracks, tributes, and collaborations.

As usual, each is tagged with original cover/labels and made to be played as one long playlist. She's 10 hours, 182 tracks and about 1.4 gigs. And she's got her share of hard-to-find goodies here!

I have a tough time thinking of anyone who has consistently put out such great material for so many years seemingly so effortlessly. Because he has been around for so long, I believe he's been consistently overlooked and under-rated.

Dedicated to Myrez, with whom I shared a love of EC and The Attractions for 40+ years

Elton John - I'm Still Standing /The Complete UK-US Singles 1965-2020



   
Never in a million years did I think that I'd compile a set like this, but an odd turn of events lead me to this - I was upgrading my EJ collection when I found a nearly complete set of 45 needle drops along with later CD singles/EPs.  That and the fact my fiance was on an EJ binge led me to put this together.  Once finished, I found that most of it was quite a good listen and makes a pretty strong case that EJ is indeed more than just his 70's-80's hits and the occasional duet or soundtrack.  I hope that you'll give it a listen, especially the last four volumes.  It came out much better than expected.  There are a bunch of really rare and hard to find tracks here as well.  Elton should consider making one of his own. He deserves better than the endless repackages of the same old hits.

My rules for compiling this was about the same as last year's Bowie 52 Years set - all UK/US commercially released singles in the order of date with no duplication.  All songs needed to have active involvement from Elton - if he only played or sang backup, it wasn't included.  I did make some exceptions - some of the really early singles had his involvement because he was a band member, not a leader yet. Even in the few songs he doesn't sing on, you can hear what he was adding to the band. I really wanted to tell his complete story. It's all @320, 324 Tracks split into 15 CD-sized volumes, each tagged with original artwork.

Note: The early US Uni singles were mono, often with dedicated mixes. If I was able, I defaulted to those. Also, I'm guilty of creating a promo edit of Tiny Dancer. I prefer it. I hope you agree!

The later years became problematic as 45s went into CDs and especially when CDs went into downloads and back to vinyl.  Nevertheless, I tried to compile a collection that used all of the correct single versions and if a clean digital version wasn't available, I used needle drops.  Please let me know what you think and also please tell me if there is anything that is wrong or missing. I do plan to continue adding on the last volume and adding future volumes as his career progresses
