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

Jethro Tull - With You There To Help Me: The Singles and EPs 1967-99

     Another Tull compilation? There have been too damn many box sets and greatest hits collections that recycle the same material. Further, with the Steven Wilson deluxe reissues they take a deep dive into each album. Sometimes it seems too deep, at least for me. This collection evens out both and creates an even-handed view of their career through 1999, including some material that even Steven Wilson missed. By putting the focus on the singles and EPs, Ian Anderson's and Jethro Tull's career comes into perspective.

This comp may actually "wind-up" in Ian's hands: I scored front row tix for Mr. Anderson and his current crew and I hope to share this with him via a flash drive after the show. The last time I saw him was 3 of the 4 nights they played at the Forum during the Passion Play tour in '73. I celebrated by taking different drugs each night I went. Those were the days!

So, I really tried to get the actual single mixes/edits and when I couldn't, I researched and did the best I could to recreate them. you'd think that with the Steven Wilson reissues, it'd be easy to find them all, but that definitely wasn't the case. So when you see these as "BF Edit or some such with "BF" in it, I had to get creative. When the comp enters the CD era, I included all of those tracks included on the CD Eps.  Is it too long? Did I forget anything? Please let me know what you think! All @320 with original labels/sleeves embedded! I also went through and put stars [**] next to the tracks that are not currently commercially available on CD.

Please note on 15 February part three (only), has been upgraded with 2 tracks and added ten more total added. Thanks a bunch Colin!

Dedicated to my old friend James Thomas!

Bob D*Y*L*A*N - Judas! (The Complete 1965-66 Recordings) Part Five

Finishing up the set are the last five parts, including the very end of the UK tour, Blond On Blond, the final singles (with correct mixes/edits) and ending with a surprise,  a decent copy of the Eat The Document film. Note about G(oogle)-Drive: if you choose this option, you'll need to unzip it twice. This was necessary to keep the links active.

Once again, if you have any material to add, please share it.  If there are any errors, let me know in comments and I'll get them fixed ASAP. For you Dylanologists (almost reads like gynecologist, doesn't it?) out there, thanks for your understanding and support for this set.

Dedicated to my son Derek, who caused me to reexamine and renew my appreciation of Bob.

Bob D*Y*L*A*N - Judas! (The Complete 1965-66 Recordings) Part Four

This seems like a good time to remind that Judas! is both an archive and something to be enjoyed without the difficulty/annoyance of having to search for and change discs. If you want to choose your Dylan concerts/sessions while on a long drive or having a BBQ here it is. I believe Judas! to be virtually complete today. But tomorrow it might not be. This is why Willard was willing to dedicate a separate Wormhole to this project before he closed up shop. If you have an upgrade or something missing (of musical value - Joan Baez singing while Dylan types doesn't count. Nor does hearing his harmonica playing in the background while someone else is being interviewed) please share. FLAC, WAV or 320 is preferred. Once I receive it, I will convert, tag the file to match the rest of the collection, and post the update/upgrade as a separate post.

Furthermore, when it comes to music, I consider myself knowledgeable but definitely not an expert. Dylan especially. The benefits (for me) of putting together these collections are researching, exploring learning and then sharing. If you find an error or omission - or even better yet something to add - please share.

Bob D*Y*L*A*N - Judas! (The Complete 1965-66 Recordings) Part One

So here it finally is, after three 1/2 years! To call this project a bitch would be a HUGE understatement. the lion's share of the work was done in late 2016 and a beta version was released in February 2017 in a small private forum. I was missing a few single edits to complete the set and finally got them a few months ago while working on the KHJ series.

My original idea was simply to arrange The Cutting Edge with Live 1966 so that these would work together and also to put all the sessions/concerts in a folder each. But as I started working I decided the only way to do it correctly was to include all of the 1965 copyright set ............ and Great Danes's 15-disc 1965 Revisited ...... and Vigotone's 26 disc Jewels and Binoculars and Crawling On The Cutting Room Floor. That wasn't enough - I added in all of the singles (in original 45 versions!) and the three LPs in mono and stereo, including known alternate mixes. This is the (damn near) complete Great White Wonder in proper context, in order, as complete as possible, in the best possible quality (for 320) and without having all of that annoying trouble of searching through multiple discs/volumes to get a complete session or show. In fact, many studio sessions have slates, count-ins, and endings restored that were not even included on The Cutting Edge!

1225 tracks. 85 hours. Over 11 and a half gigs. Every concert, studio recording, demo, private recording and interview that exists.  As you could imagine, some of this was a tough slog. Every track has to be individually re-tagged by hand. There are no track numbers. No worries though, it will load and play in the correct order. A small portion of the material is NOT 320 (1965 Revisited) but it's mostly interviews or other non-musical stuff. No big whoop. Going back through it in 2020, I fixed some errors/omissions, did some upgrades, tagged each track with the original source cover art. It's all spruced up!

As new performances are discovered and when I get them, I will post updates to this set so they fit in with the rest of the set.

That said, I can now finally share it all with you. But first, let me explain about the track/file numbers:

19650308-01 - Subterranean Homesick Blues [Mono Single Edit]
[year][month][date][-order][-track title]

[SNB]= Soundboard recording taken directly from the mixing board.
[AUD]= Audience recording.
