WDRQ usually listed the top albums on its survey.  However, on this survey, the
album listing was replaced by an entry blank for its contest for a trip to San
Francisco.  Entries were to be sent to WDRQ, 15933 West 8 Mile Rd., Detroit, Mich.
48235.  This is the same 8 Mile made famous as the title of the Eminem movie.

Done -- I removed the duplicate.

On a separate note, I started cleaning up a few of the album entries for Zep,
Chicago & Santana.  More work to do there, as occasionally a "Zeppelin" in 71 will
match to Zep III instead of IV, depending on how it is entered (e.g. untitled vs
listing it as "IV")...  I don't even want to think about Peter Gabriel's first 4
untitled albums...

 I alerted Tim about the duplicate survey.  He's the only one who can delete it. 
Thanks!

Just a heads-up -- this particular survey appears to have been entered into the
database twice. This is a very rare occurrence here on ARSA, but I guess
occasionally one sneaks past!


Cheers,

Thanks Gary, Kenn,

If that is how ARSA wants it that is how I will do it.

I think it is good though to have my notes about this song somewhere, which is why
I made one about this song on the chart if first appeared as a double song. 

While this song was a double sided single release in the USA (like Kenn's Queen
example), in Canada, from it's independent band release on Extreme ER-1 in 1979, to
the re-release on Extreme/WEA in 1980 the song was not a double sided single but
listed as This Beat Goes On-Switchin' / Switchin' and then the re-release as This
Beat Goes On-Switchin' To Glide / My Habit. Complicated even in Canada with the
promo release of Switchin' To Glide to radio before the full re-release of the
single.

Luckily for our neighbours south, a 12" promo was released to radio with both songs
on both the a and b side so that there weren't flipping issues while playing :)


However, I do not wish to get too nitpicky.  I am involved in other online
databases, that go way too far with preciseness and it drives me crazy.  

I just find the issue interesting, especially due to the intricacies of
licensing/copyright in various countries.

Thanks for the comments

 Derek,

   Looks like Kenn has already aptly handled this one.  I agree that the easiest
way to handle the Kings song is to create indivual entries for "This Beat Goes On"
and "Switchin' To Glide".

Hi Derek...

  I know this medley quite well -- a classic piece of CanCon! I've had to enter it
into the database on numerous occasions, and for stations that list *both* tracks I
have dealt with it as a two-sided hit.  This meant that I created separate chart
entries (with identical chart placings) for both "This Beat Goes On" and for
"Switchin' To Glide".  The database picks up on both of these entries.

  The situation is similar to the Queen two-sided hit "We Will Rock You" and "We
Are The Champions", which many stations wound up playing back-to-back as a medley
(as it appears on the album News Of the World).  Again, ARSA lists both tracks
separately, and treats it as a double-sided hit.

  Hope that clears things up!


  Cheers,

  - Kenn.

There are a handful of songs that cause nightmares for catalogers.  The Kings aong
This Beat Goes On-Switchin' To Glide definitely qualifies as one!

The song first charted as Switchin' To Glide. In actuality, that was only part of
the song and the full song was This Beat Goes On-Switchin' To Glide. It recharted
as the full single.

It was released in varies forms, with Switchin' To Glide and This Beat Goes On as
A/B sides, and vice versa. The full single was also released as an A side with the
B side being  My Habit.

Radio stations played various incarnations of this song over the song's radio
lifespan. The cross border US/Can copyright and releases also help cloud the
issue.

When this first charted on CIHI, it was as Switchin to Glide and is linked to that
song in the ARSA db.  After a few weeks it recharted as the full release. That
isn't linked in, as per this chart.  

So after all the rambling, how this should be linked in is the question.  Then,
I'll enter it appropriately so it does on future charts.

Thanks
Derek

  Derek,

   There was a US release of this.  The label/number and flip side are the same as
the Canadian release.

Hi Kenn,

Thanks for the warm welcome.

yes I have almost all CIHi charts through 1991.   In the mid eighties instead of
attending classes, I spent many hours pouring over microfilm at the university
library.  :)

I'm just glad I've found a reason to dig all those charts out, and relive my past.

Derek

 Thank you for the label info, Derek.  Everything I've found seems to indicate that
"Trouble" was on both sides of the single - one side mono, the other stereo.

Hi Derek...

  Just want to say welcome aboard, and thanks for these great surveys!  It's
terrific to see some material from New Brunswick, an under-represented province
here on ARSA.  Hope there's more to come!

  And I know Gary appreciates your work on tracking down info about those obscure
regional hits.  Actually, I think we all have a special fondness for those
"forgotten" hits on this site.  Sometimes, ARSA is the only place on the web where
you can prove that some of these songs *were* hits, at least at one or two radio
stations...

  Cheers,

  - Kenn.

Sorry, I could not despite finding the label and the catalog number find anywhere
what the flip side was.

Hopefully it looks like there won't be too many of these regional small city hits
to add :)
