I just want everyone on Dreamsville to be aware of the massive amount of work John Fisher did to bring this together.

It's not something I would have tackled. Just the sheer number of things that had to be tracked down.

My hat's off as well, John. Amazing job, sir.

Hell, the check's in the mail already.

Joking aside, Thanks Phil. I couldn't have tackled the technical and graphic side without your help.


But I want to take this opportunity to thank my partner in crime, Mick. I may have taken care of the organization, construction, and nagging, but at least I didn't have to do all that writing! Mick put in a massive amount of work writing all of the Collector's Notes for each release. And don't forget the necessary research that preceeded each entry. He's a real trooper, and I'm proud to have him as compatriot. A good team I'd say.

John

A massive thank you and well done to all involved.

That's my reading material sorted for a few days.


Correction - Weeks!


Thanks. We appreciate your kind words.

Did you realise you're quoted in a few of the Fan Thoughts sections? Even when you said "Holy Shit!" Keep 'em comin'. Enthusiasm is contagious. And besides, Bill deserves all the support he can get when he releases new albums, and I'm glad at least you realise it. Thanks for guiding others.

John

Okay, it's official - I'm stupid. I find no link. In the Salon, you say. So I go there, and end up in the reception. No link. Where should I look?

Hi Captain,

The link is closer to the bottom of the first post in this thread. It's highlighted in blue, but it's kinda small. There's also a link at the top of the FAQ thread.

I've got a whole closet full of 'stupid' badges that I earned along the way, so I'll send you a badge as an honorary club member. But I'm president stupid, mind you.

John

The link to the PDF is broken.
Could someone repair the link?
I have my treasured copy, but I wanted to pass the link on to someone else.

Mick and I have decided to put the guide out to pasture, so to speak. With the info from the guide we created now guiding fans via the website, we felt it had fulfilled its original purpose.

Believe it or not, I only utilised the pdf format in order to have people visualize what it could look like in the old website. Originally it was our dream get the guide integrated into the old website. Then I pushed to help create a new site design that mirrors Bill's modern yet nostalgic Technicolor aesthetic. (Thanks for putting up with me Jon.)

Since the guide and the discography on the new website are created on two different programs, I'm not updating the guide anymore (it would be double the work). I'm happy to let anyone download it from my cloud site. Just send me a pm.

But I don't think we would want to offer it up for download on the new site - since it is already out of date (ending in May 2017), and also because it uses the old site design.

Hope that makes sense.

cheers, John
