Beggar's Banquet stereo copy listed in www.stonesondecca.com as no.14/version 2 is Dutch, actually. The picture used to illustrate the entry reads 'made in Holland' on labels and my copy also sports typical Dutch matrix numbers. Just a mistake or somebody tends to consider this as a British record?
Hi Jan I was wondering when will 70's Decca page on the website be open?
Kind Regards Paul
That is a good question for sure. I am wondering myself actually. Low priority on that project for the moment. Let's see if I can find some inspiration in the fall when the temp will go below freezing point.
Hey Jan! Did you take down the matrixlist you started?
Yes I did. I was not pleased with the presentation. I need to find another way to list the matrix numbers. But I can link the existing pages again. I have them on the server, it is just a matter of linking them onto the page again. I'll do that tonight
Just a quick recap on the situation of my stonesondecca page. The server provider has been very generous and nice as they have upgraded the platform and software to use for building and updating web pages. On the same time they have stopped to support the old platform...... SHIT SHIT SHIT. This is a total disaster, coz the new platform is totally useless and do not have any kind of support / user manual. So I have not been able to update ANYTHING on the page since beginning of 2015.
This has forced me to start to rebuild the whole page on a new platform on another server provider. This will only take about two years to do. Stones collecting is not my only free time activity nowwadays. I am also into arranging big vintage car exhibitions that takes about 9 months of the year. So I am down to three months for stonesondecca.
I need to redo EVERY picture, try to find the original, work with it in gimp and a few other places before I can use it. There are close to 1.000 pics to go through. Need to redo a lot of text as well. There is about 95 different pages on stonesondecca for the moment and I have now completed about seven of them on the new platform.
I have lots of updates that should be added, but that will be only in connection with the launching of the new page sometime in the next couple of years....
