Pretty amazing record from virtually unknown singer/songwriter/arranger.

  1. Oh no. I'm sorry to hear that E. I hope you reconsider but I totally get it. If you do I thank you for all you have done here. You have my email if you ever want to reach out in the future if this comes to pass. Best of luck and hoping you and yours have a happy and safe holiday weekend.

  2. Thanks so much for the wonderful music you're publishing - your Wish List however is so exquisite that I cannot contribute.
    Best regards, Peter

  4. I love this blog. I've only ever downloaded a handful of albums but, true, I should have thanked you. "Sincere thanks".
    What I enjoy(ed) about your blog is the unusual, short bylines that explain the origins of some albums and the implication that some are not too everybody's (anybody's?) taste.
    Thanks again

    1. Not generally a big commenter at the few music blogs I check out on a regular basis, but you definitely have my thanks as well. Cool forgotten and lost treasures -- and amazing trash -- here, and just as cool pithy write-ups. I, too, get how you could get burned out but, selfishly, hope you keep plugging away. All the best...

  5. I know what you are up against since I blog myself. I visit this site every day and will hate to see it go. I took another crack at your request list and got nada. Hope you stick around.

  6. I despise thieves, especially ungrateful ones.
    Would hate to see you go, would love to help. I have a collection of over 30,000 LPs in MP3 format, 1960s to 1970s, some of them quite rare. Please contact me at pitkon@otenet.gr for a list.

  10. I liked this record very soulful, also good work with electric piano arrangements. Just to know, do you have Alasdair Clayre album from 1967? and Michael Lessac album from 1968? are they possible to post. Thank you

  15. So....have you made a final decision on whether or not to shut down? I only ever contributed one album to your site, but I checked the site several times a week, and there is ALWAYS something interesting and/or fun here. I'm voting with the "please don't go" crowd.

  16. Never say UNKNOWN in Phoenix, AZ. He has played New Years Eve at the Celebrity Theatre for many years. He has about a dozen LP & CD's out. and the inventer of the Beamz computer musical instrument. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0WX904-cqks

  17. Jerry is not UNKNOWN! It's just most are fooled by mass market garbage. Jerry is quality, not quantity. He IS known and LOVED by many, who are still rockin to his music all these decades later. Jerry Riopelle is a true musician, lyricist, song writer, vocalist, instrumentalist, recording artist, and live performer. A master. Thank you Jerry!
