There's an discrepancy in this article, which states that the same recording of Journey of the Sorcerer was used in all five HGTTG radio series, while The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy entry states that different recordings were used for the first two and final three series. Can someone please clear this up? Thx! - SlickVicar —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 01:53, 13 April 2008 (UTC)
Journey of the Sorcerer
The article was edited by User:18.104.22.168 to add the comment below after the following text:
- The track was also used in the third episode of the eighth season of Frasier, The Great Crane Robbery, during a montage in which Frasier Crane is rearranging the furniture in his apartment.
Primary topic and suggested move
Which is the primary topic, the album or the song? If the song is the primary topic, I would like to propose the title of the song article would be moved from One of These Nights (song) to One of These Nights and that the title of the album article would be moved from One of These Nights to One of These Nights (album). If anyone would like to discuss the topic, please leave a message on my talk page. Thank you.--22.214.171.124 (talk) 01:00, 23 August 2013 (UTC)
- This was just dealt with, ironically, with another album: we now have Hotel California for the song and Hotel California (album). For their second album we have Desperado (song) and Desperado (Eagles album). The third album is On the Border, with the title song not having its own article. We have The Long Run (song) and The Long Run (album). We should be consistent on how we handle this, and I will direct other editors to this discussion. Cheers :> Doc talk 04:11, 23 August 2013 (UTC)
- The problem arises from using ambiguous article titles. The obvious way that consistency could be achieved is by always following the title convention of "Some Particular (Eagles song)" and "Some Particular (Eagles album)". When you try to remove parts of those strings from an article title, you introduce ambiguity in cases where there are other topics on Wikipedia that have "Some Particular" name, and you will sometimes be forced to choose whether to consider the song or album with "Some Particular" name as the "primary topic". —BarrelProof (talk) 00:13, 24 August 2013 (UTC)
- Oops, I should have checked the talk page before making the album the primary topic. I don't believe this is remotely comparable to Hotel California (disambiguation), since the only other ambiguous terms are the song and a partial title match. Since there are dozens of links meant for the album, I'd suggest a requested move if you disagree with the album being the primary topic for this term. —Xezbeth (talk) 13:00, 28 August 2013 (UTC)
Instrumental; banjo by Bernie Leadon, fiddles by David Bromberg, string by the Royal Martian Orchestra, recorded "in root"
- just my 2cents, as a musician and sometime studio bassist.. perhaps, all done at once, all the players there in the room. Also.. the majority of Eagles might not have liked “I Wish You Peace” ..below their standards.. geez, what anal egos. I THINK it balances out, well w/ all that came before it.. much like "Good Night" at the end of the Beatles White album. ok?? 2602:304:CDAF:A3D0:3010:2693:130A:C9BA (talk) 17:40, 19 April 2016 (UTC)
Then again... some folks pronounce it rowt, some.. root. That is, the metaphorical? journey or road currently being traveled by the forementioned Sorcerer or performers..? As in, being of more importance than the desaltation, ah destination...? 2602:304:CDAF:A3D0:1D92:B1BE:7A5E:C102 (talk) 03:15, 9 April 2017 (UTC)
