All the new discs have been entered into the database, and the new update sheets are printing out as I type.

The count is now at 13,093 tracks, of which 9866 are unique.

I started at something like midnight, a bit after I got back from dinner, and, well, now I won't exactly be fully rested for tonight's show. That's the way it goes, an' all.

It was of course damned Music Maestro and their damned unattributed latin songs that took most of the time. What was worse was that they'd frequently list the authors. Incorrectly, for a number of them (Alberto Beltrán is not A. Bertrand, and Juan Luis Guerra was listed as J.L. Guerrerra on one track), but at least they'd taken the time to track that down.

But now I've got most of them attributed, and some of those, I'm relatively sure, correctly.

I don't know who's represented by the version I've got of Yo No Camino Más (Not a lot of samples to compare to, and many covers), all I know of Rosa María is that it's not the Lucero version (he claims the original lyrics are by D.A.R. - and I doubt he means the Daughters of the American Revolution), I threw up my hands and attributed Compadre Pedro Juan to Alberto Beltrán (at least I know he did a version), La Paloma dates from 1863 (and may be the most covered song on the planet), who knows whose version of Angelitos Negros I've got, Alma Con Alma and Encadenados were kinda thrown to Jon Secada and Luis Miguel, respectively (in the latter case, despite stylistic differences. I was getting tired and cranky), that version of Hipocresía doesn't really match Los Pasteles Verdes, and Mi Cucu isn't quite the La Sonora Dinamita version (but that's what people know, so I ceased caring). Also, I got too fond of listing stuff as Cheo Feliciano. What can I say? I like the name.

Sleep. Now.

  • Stuff

    I have another little batch of new songs, this time some requests, but also several that just seemed interesting. The track count is up to 24,153,…

  • Yet More

    I've added a significant chunk of new songs. Granted, quite a few are from "Kiss Me, Kate", but hey. Take a look. There are a few very old requests…

  • A Fair Chunk

    I've added a reasonable chunk of new songs, mostly requests, some of them quite old. Take a look! The track count is up to 24,083, and the unique…
