Re: Steve Sullivan - Encyclopedia of Great Popular Song Recordings (Volumes 3 and 4)

Hi Steve!

I'm sorry it took time to get back to you. I have asked Rob who would like to request a review copy. I think the review will be posted here in the forum, but I can probably link to the review from the main site somehow. Does it sound good to you?

Spotify tracksets no longer working :-(

Spotify have deprecated the support for tracksets (a custom set of tracks without creating a playlist that I had an automatic script for) in the Spotify Play Button. This means that the playlists on all artist pages and the top songs by country pages are no longer working. https://stackoverflow.com/...

Re: Tracking favorite songs

Remember that, say, a 90s list will more change the order of the 90s songs than give them an overall boost, since songs from other decades were not eligible and therefore x'd out in the spreadsheets.
