Hi Paulm. Nice version with the sticker. I have not seen this sticker on boxed TTPD LP before. The pictures are too unsharp for the stonesondecca page. I would need a bit better quality. One thing you could do, probably you held the camera on free hand when you took the photos. Put a stack of books ore something similar, put the camera on the books and then shoot. The camera will not be shaking rattling & rolling then
Thanks Paulm, I can use these photos Too much to other stuff going on just now, so it will take some time before I put the pictures on stonesondecca Going to London next week to celebrate 50 years of R&B

I was checking the statistics that the webpage gives on my stonesondecca today and it was nice to check where my page has been used and linked. Not only direct links to my page was given but I also found that images on my page that has been used on other pages were listed. Through this I found a French discussion forum by the name of "forum.yellow-sub.net"
There is a guy by the name "olivierh" on this forum and he has been taking a lot of information and pictures from stonesondecca and he is posting them as "his own information". Other posters congratulates him on well done research and so on. What a drag, this guy is steeling all my information and not mentioning the source.
Yeah, I know, you can freely use everything on the net blaha blaha blaha. But at least you should give credit to whom it belongs...
I can't copy the exact links from my web statistics but the tread is named "Décompte Rolling Stones : Some Girls (1978) + 45 Tours" This tread contains about 20 or so posts by this olivierh with my material Seams as if you need to register to get officially in on the forum.
Anyone here a member of that forum? Can any of you French guys put in a few posts and inform the public the original source of the fantastic Stones material on the forum...

I am sorry to hear this. Unfortunately, it is the way of the internet. People plagiarize all the time on it. That is one reason I watermark most of my photos. Much of my friend James' book on the early days of the Stones has been stolen, lock, stock and barrel. In the academic world, you would be ostracized and ridden out of town on a rail if you did that. Now, it is accepted. It really makes me sick. Again, hope this gets worked out.

The thing is that I need to watermark everything now. That means the following: Put a watermark on each and every picture separately on my own hard drive Upload every picture again to the server Take out each and every non-watermarked picture from each web-page and link in the new watermarked picture. This is just too much work, so it may well be that I will close down the whole project and just enjoy all the good information on my own
