May 23, 16 RE: Curly Putman, not Putnam Gary Pfeifer
 
  Took care of the Curly situation.  Thanks, Joel! 
May 22, 16 Curly Putman, not Putnam Joel Bernstein
 
The artist listed as Curly Putnam is also correctly listed as Curly Putman. The same
record - My Elusive Dreams - is listed under both names and splitting the chart
entries.
  This error happens in a lot of places because Putnam is a much more common name,
but he really is Putman (and a very successful songwriter, although not much as a
recording artist).
 
May 22, 16 RE: Incorrect titles K.A. Scott
 
Both are now fixed -- thanks, Joel!
May 22, 16 Incorrect titles Joel Bernstein
 
Prepping a country survey from 1967, I noticed two of the songs are in the database,
but with slightly off titles that would keep them from matching up.
   The Bonnie Guitar song in the database as You Can Steal is really You Can steal
Me.
   The Hank Snow song in the database as Down In The Pawn Shop is supposed to be
Down At The Pawn Shop.
   Both titles are confirmed in Whitburn.
May 19, 16 RE: Rock My Soul - Mr. Google Eyes Gary Pfeifer
 
  Thanks, Paul. Had a difficult time finding anything on that single. Will make the
correction.
May 19, 16 RE: Norma Jean K.A. Scott
 
Hi Joel...

  Thanks for the tip!  I've separated these two artists, and have added a whack of
of records by Norma Jean (the country artist) to the database.

That was me (Lee Tucker) below.

Might be something to it or maybe it's just a combination of circumstances in my
case.  I am also still using Windows 7 and encountered the same Windows 10 install
packet you did & also deleted it.  Just prior to this, Gary was kind enough to
share his offline survey preparation format with me which I am now using; thus, I
am not on the site nearly as long as I previously was.  When I am on the site to
upload offline prepared surveys, I'm  not having nearly the issues I previously was
although it still has it's moments.  Either way, the site is currently more
user-friendly for me & hope it continues.  
May 19, 16 Rock My Soul - Mr. Google Eyes Paul H.
 
Gary, even though Joe August did record for Columbia, I show the record "Rock My
Soul" b/w "Cryin' For You" as being released in 1950 on Domino 350.  Also, the
artist on the actual record is just shown as Mr. Google Eyes.
May 18, 16 Norma Jean Joel Bernstein
 
There are two different women who recorded very different music using this name, and
they are mistakenly combined into one artist entry here.
Norma Jean (Beasler) was a country singer on RCA, and Norma Jean (Wright)was a
dance/R&B singer on Bearsville who was the original female singer for Chic before
going solo.
The country Norma Jean had a lot of hits which are not yet in the database.

Yesterday I deleted the Windows 10 upgrade install packet from my computer. I'm
still using Windows 7. Today, things seem to be running smoother. I'm wondering if
the install packet, which was sending pop-ups every ten minutes, was slowing things
down. Just a thought.
May 16, 16 RE: Lew Burdette Gary Pfeifer
 
  That named popped out at me also and when I saw the song title, knew it had to be
the baseball pitcher.  I'm sure I have some old baseball cards of Lew yet from
those I bought as a kid. :)
May 16, 16 Lew Burdette Joel Bernstein
 
I saw him recently added to the database as an artist, and being an old baseball fan
the name jumped out at me. Lew Burdette was a star pitcher for the Milwaukee Braves
and the MVP of the 1957 World Series. How appropriate that two months later he had
a Top 30 hit in Milwaukee with something called Three Strikes And You're Out. A lot
of baseball players in the 50s and 60s also made records, and I like to collect
them, but I didn't know about this one.  
May 16, 16 RE: Gary Pfeifer
 
 Paul - Made the correction to the George Cates song.  Thanks!
May 16, 16 "Chug-A-Lug" - George Cates Paul H.
 
Gary, I noticed a typo for this song in the database.  The label should be Coral,
not Capitol.  Thanks!
May 16, 16 RE5: Lengthy Delays Paul H.
 
I'm surprised to hear that you guys are having problems.  If anything, the site has
been better for me in recent weeks.  Perhaps you may want to try switching
browsers?  I know that things really sped up for me when I switched from Internet
Explorer to FireFox.  Just a thought...
May 16, 16 RE4: Lengthy Delays Lee Tucker
 
Hi Rick

Sorry To hear that but if it's any consolation, it was even worse this morning.  
May 15, 16 RE3: Lengthy Delays Rick Hy
 
Iíve had the same problems and this morning was the worst. Just like you
experienced, Lee. 
May 15, 16 RE2: Lengthy Delays Lee Tucker
 
Thanks Gary & Gino; at least I know it's not my router.  This was the worst morning
yet as I gave it up after 5 very short surveys which took almost 3 hours.  Hope Tim
can fix it soon.
Cheers.
May 14, 16 RE: Lengthy Delays Gary Pfeifer
 
 Lee & Geno - These lengthy delays have been occurring the last year or so and I
have even experienced them around 1 and 2 AM Arizona time when I would think
activity would be at a minimum. These delays have been reported to and discussed
with Tim.  He said certain functions on the website (the Top Songs, Top Artists
buttons for example) consume a very significant amount of resources which could
cause a slow-down. Plus the function will need to be completed before the next
action can be started possibly causing the error messages.  He stated he would look
into it further.

  I find it best to prepare the surveys I enter offline and then input using the
Autofill function.  That way, if an error message is encountered when inputting,
the data can just be copied over again rather than need retype everything.
