Fannie Mae Goosby[edit]

Or, if you like, Fannie May Goosby. Either way, it is a bit of Fannie. Does BARE have anything to say, 'cos I'm really struggling for biographical information, although the recording side of things seems dandy. Thanks, as ever,

Derek R Bullamore (talk) 20:16, 31 March 2017 (UTC)

BARE (p. 509) mentions Fannie Goosby, possibly born in Pinehurst, Georgia, 1902 - last reported in New York about 1934. Not much help really. Ghmyrtle (talk) 13:27, 1 April 2017 (UTC)
Thanks. After much deliberation she is to be posted here as 'Fannie May Goosby', as this seems to be the more common spelling. I may leave these really obscure blues boys and girls alone, as they appear to cause me more grief in researching them than seems worthwhile. All Fools' Day today, of course, and it feels like it is me that is the real fool !

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Here's a memory test. Do you recall, by any chance, what I recently stated above. Well..... Ida May Mack flew passed my window and I found a potential plethora of puerile padding – sorry, but it's already copyrighted by me – on this obscure dear old gal, who seemingly recorded eight tracks in 1928. Is BARE any help here, before I go gaily giddy again ?

The cricket season is upon us (hurrah), and it is Headingley for me and mine on Friday. You'll probably be glad to hear that I will shortly phase in, and out of Wiki duties, for another five months or so.

Derek R Bullamore (talk) 23:46, 2 April 2017 (UTC)

Sorry, BARE doesn't seem to mention Ida May Mack at all, surprisingly. Ghmyrtle (talk) 08:09, 3 April 2017 (UTC)
Ida May is up and running, with the sadly oh so usual "nothing known about her life outside of recording" stuff. Thanks for looking for me - Derek R Bullamore (talk) 15:05, 4 April 2017 (UTC)

Rosa Henderson[edit]

Her article only had the one, multi-reference (AllMusic) before I had a go at it. But, the birth and death places are not really referenced, and I suspect she should be in BARE. When you have five minutes could you please oblige. Ta,

Grade II* listed buildings in Monmouthshire[edit]

Morning Ghmyrtle,

Don't know if you're going to be out and about this weekend but I'm looking for a few Chepstow-area photos for the Grade II* listed buildings in Monmouthshire list. There are quite a few missing but what I really need at present are:

  • Mounton House - a good photo of the front
  • Moynes Court - both the Court, and the Gatehouse
  • St Pierre - a photo of the Gatehouse and accompanying range, from the front, not the church side
  • Raglan Lodge and No.14, Beaufort Square, Chepstow.

None of the above can be found on Commons or Geograph, which tends to suggest they may be a bit inaccessible? I think Mounton may have been converted into flats. Moynes is definitely private, although the gatehouse can be rented. Do you have to play 18 holes, at vast expense, to get into St Pierre? The Beaufort Square two must be available, but no one's taken them. Any, or all, would be much appreciated if you have time and inclination. Regards. KJP1 (talk) 07:10, 14 April 2017 (UTC)

Mounton House and Moynes Court are both private properties, accessed via driveways I believe, so photographing them is not easy without some reason to be there. St Pierre in general is perfectly accessible, but I'm not sure about that particular angle, and I've no plans to go there at the moment. Raglan Lodge and 14 Beaufort Square are adjoining properties. I've taken some snaps there this morning, and plan to write a brief stub about Raglan Lodge when time permits. It's recently been refurbished, and there is more information here. I don't think I have any information about number 14, but certainly should be able to upload a photo. Ghmyrtle (talk) 08:45, 14 April 2017 (UTC)
Much appreciated. I feared long, private, drives might be the reason no one had shot them. The same's true of Tredean, at Devauden, where you can just see the little Tudoresque lodge, and Shirenewton Hall, where only the, rather impressive, gates can be seen. No.14, which I think is next to Raglan Lodge, appears listed mainly for a medieval hall in a shared basement with No.13. Not sure that will be accessible! KJP1 (talk) 08:58, 14 April 2017 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) There are a few images of Mounton House here, some of which seem to be copied from the 13th Feb 1945 editon of Country Life, and which may be copyright free? Who knows, even earlearchitects.com might be willing to release one of their recent ones? That page may be quite a good source in itself. Martinevans123 (talk) 09:10, 14 April 2017 (UTC)

A tattoo parlour - the indignity. But Raglan Lodge looks rather handsome - very nice window hood. Many thanks, indeed. KJP1 (talk) 17:41, 14 April 2017 (UTC)
Re. the photos, thanks Martin, they're very beautiful. But I have no doubt the copyright kings on Commons would delete them. You'll recall Hando, where I wasn't even allowed a photo I took of a book cover of his, which I own and which is some fifty years old. I do think the Commons guys go a bit mad on the copyright rules. This infobox, Kim Jong-un, and the explanation as to why, is one of the most ridiculous things I've seen on here. KJP1 (talk) 17:48, 14 April 2017 (UTC)
Well we could try and call in our favourite Copyright Czarina for some clarification. I think she owes me for slightly trampling over my Uncloudy Day edits! Martinevans123 (talk) 17:55, 14 April 2017 (UTC)
Non-free images of buildings that are still extant are not permitted under our fair use rules. Images published in Country Life in 1915 would be {{PD-US}} but to upload to the Commons you would also have to be able to prove that they are in the public domain in the source country as well. If you can't prove them to be PD in the source country, you could upload them to en.wiki and tag them as PD-US with the proviso {{Do not move to Commons|reason=USonly}}Diannaa 🍁 (talk) 18:24, 14 April 2017 (UTC)

The Romancers[edit]

I've been busy lately, so I haven't had time to look over some things, but I just noticed that an inexperienced editor (Lincoln Tiger) has made a lot of sloppy changes to the Romancers article. I would imagine that the editor may be connected with someone in the band's history (Uballez?) and wants to represent the article from that person's point of view. While some of what has been added may indeed be true, very little of it is sourced. And, it seems to be written from a biased perspective (as if it is trying to prove a point). In my original edits, I tried be faithful to what the sources say, but there is so much in there now we cannot verify. I don't know what to do about it. Going back edit-by edit is going to be complicated. I don't think that we could do rollback, because the edits seem to be in good faith. What would you recommend? Perhaps it might be best to revert it back to the earlier wording (before that LincolnTiger's series of edits), and I could contact that LincolnTiger and we could discuss the changes he'd like to see. What should we do, revert individual edits or take it back to a prior state in time? Garagepunk66 (talk) 03:36, 23 April 2017 (UTC)

Apart from correcting the formating and referencing errors (which I can look at), I suggest you wait a day or so to see if LincolnTiger responds to you. They are clearly new here, and need to be made aware of various policies and guidelines, including WP:COI, WP:NOR, etc. etc.. If they cooperate, work with them - in particular, if they are willing to go down the route of identifying, on the article talk page, factual errors in the February version. If not, I suggest that, essentially, you revert back to the February version but also add in any additional information you can glean from the www.makzrecords.com site. Ghmyrtle (talk) 07:44, 23 April 2017 (UTC)
Thanks. I'll take some time and see if Lincoln Tiger wishes to respond. Garagepunk66 (talk) 02:40, 24 April 2017 (UTC)

Recent edits on Licorice McKechnie[edit]

Hi, I may have not been correct about 1990 disappearance, but I wrote that because she went missing in 1987. The reason I reworded the article its because it was plagiarized from another internet article. Also why did you remove the disappearance heading. Davidgoodheart (talk) 16:46, 28 April 2017 (UTC)

The article was not "plagiarized from another internet article". That section (and most of the article) is sourced from published material in the Be Glad book and the Mojo article, as the references state. This has been discussed in the past (and in my comments there today) on the article talk page, and any further discussion should take place there. Ghmyrtle (talk) 16:51, 28 April 2017 (UTC)
As a complete aside, the second paragraph in Licorice McKechnie's article (under 'Biography') does not read well. I am not too sure what it relates too exactly, so I did not edit it myself.
Derek R Bullamore (talk) 14:41, 29 April 2017 (UTC)

Disappearance heading[edit]

Hi, Should there be a disappearance heading? Davidgoodheart (talk) 16:58, 28 April 2017 (UTC)

No - I removed it. Ghmyrtle (talk) 17:00, 28 April 2017 (UTC)

Hi, why not? Most missing people have them, why not this one? Davidgoodheart (talk) 17:03, 28 April 2017 (UTC)

I guess because, in most cases, the other articles are primarily about their disappearance. This one isn't. It's part of her biography. See also WP:Other stuff exists - it's not a valid reason to include it here. Ghmyrtle (talk) 17:08, 28 April 2017 (UTC)

German diaspora[edit]

Okay let's put under the subheading, people with German Ancestry as well. That should accommodate the edit. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Redom115 (talkcontribs) 08:36, 29 April 2017 (UTC)

This has been raised for discussion on the article talk page. Make your comments there, for other editors to contribute, rather than discussing the matter with me. Ghmyrtle (talk) 08:40, 29 April 2017 (UTC)

Diane Hildebrand[edit]

Obviously, she is not in BARE but is there a way you could find a birth date for her? I cannot even figure out if she is American or English though my best guess is English. Definitely a notable songwriter for the Monkees and others.TheGracefulSlick (talk) 19:32, 14 May 2017 (UTC)

Why do you think she is English? This suggests American, although that shouldn't be regarded as reliable. She was reported to be 22 in 1968. That article seems to have the most information about her - it says she is now called Joya Diane SKye [sic], who is here. You could message her! Her profile says she is from Crestone, Colorado, and now lives in Ashland, Oregon - more info here, which gives her age as 72, and states various relatives with the name Hilderbrand [sic]. So, possibly born around 1945 (or 46) as Diane Hilderbrand in Colorado - though I can't track anything down on Ancestry.com. and of course Hilderbrand may be a married name. There is an audio interview with her here, but I'm not sure if it helps. And on YouTube here. Most of what I've said contravenes WP:OR and MOS:BLP, of course... Ghmyrtle (talk) 22:09, 14 May 2017 (UTC)
 Done Scrub all that. She's here.... (Neither English nor retired!) And the Brazil connection, fed through Ancestry, gives me Diane Hilderbrand [sic], born on April 13, 1945, in Roswell, New Mexico. {Source Information - Ancestry.com. Florida, Passenger Lists, 1898-1963 [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: Ancestry.com Operations, Inc., 2006.) She lived in Brazil with her parents, Jewell Hilderbrand (1915-2005) and Georgetta Hilderbrand (1920-?), and a brother, David Allen Hilderbrand (b.1944). In 1965, she was back in the US, at San Fernando State College, in the chorus for a performance of Bye Bye Birdie. That's all (so far...) Ghmyrtle (talk) 22:15, 14 May 2017 (UTC)
Ahh, because I read ABC as BBC in the Amoeba article, making me think she was English. Good thing I have a sandbox. Had a nice talk with her on Facebook. Likes to talk about politics (dislikes the "commander-in-chief" thankfully). Thank you for all the help, as usual. I'll be back to congratulate you when you reach number 1,000.TheGracefulSlick (talk) 06:39, 15 May 2017 (UTC)

United Kingdom[edit]

You have reverted my edit on the United Kingdom for "three good reasons" but have not explained why. Can you please do so? I think the fact the UK is comprised of four Countries of the United Kingdom is an important piece of information to have in the lead paragraph, considering the paragraphs before the actual contents of the page do not explain the UK is comprised of four countries of the United Kingdom. May you please explain your reasons? Thanks. Best - Goodreg3 (talk) 16:39, 20 May 2017 (UTC)

Mehgan Markle[edit]

Hello Ghmyrtle.

I'm sorry about my editing on Meghan Markle but I am new to editing articles on this site.

I am journalist, psychologist and research on famous people like Meghan Markle to see what their lives have been like and improve their biographies on platforms like Wikipedia.

The reason why I have called my self I'm totally legit is because I don't want a username that doesn't shows myself of to much as I would rather keep myself private and have a username that is comfortable to other users.

As I still haven't got my journalism degree you can't expect me to be perfect on my articles yet but I still am only putting on the things I definitely know about Meghan Markle because I have done a lot of research.

I hope you understand and I will continue to improve my contributions on this site.

Please feel free to send any other messages if there is anything else you want to tell me.

Many thanks, I'm totally legit:) Im totally legit (talk) 16:37, 23 May 2017 (UTC)

I'm sure that you're acting in good faith, and I've added a welcome notice to your page. I suggest that you read some of the advice on there, including how best to get started in editing. Making substantial and not well thought-out edits on articles which are viewed by hundreds if not thousands of people is probably not the best way to start. Changes which do not meet Wikipedia's many guidelines and policies are not likely to survive for long. Good luck - but be careful in your edits. Ghmyrtle (talk) 16:49, 23 May 2017 (UTC)

Nothing to do with sex on the floor... , but have you come across this individual ? Far more your type of thing than mine, although you probably have enough on at present.

Somewhat half-hearted attempt now started.... Ghmyrtle (talk) 08:35, 30 May 2017 (UTC)
A half-decent effort, me thinks. Did you get a chance to listen to any of his work during your non-original research ? I've never heard of him at all, until I stumbled across the name via my work on Music Maker, and so on...
Derek R Bullamore (talk) 09:33, 30 May 2017 (UTC)
I half-listened to a couple of tracks - OK...ish. I was in half a mind not to include some of his personal details, where the sourcing is... not perfect, shall we say.... My interest was kindled by his affiliation with ESP-Disk, home of a personal hero of mine, Tom Rapp. Ghmyrtle (talk) 09:55, 30 May 2017 (UTC)
Pearls Before Pigs I know, but not Mr. Rapp. Incidentally, I have given his article a minor tickle, but it is terribly short of references. Over to you.
Derek R Bullamore (talk) 10:28, 30 May 2017 (UTC)

A bot got the image[edit]

Sadly, a bot removed the image of Richard Berry in the Gargage rock article--I suppose there was a copyright issue. I'll miss having it there--it enriched the article, and I remember you put it there (for which I remain grateful). Incidentally, I want to mention my sadness about the recent terrorist incident and voice my condolences and support to people in the UK. I'd also like to express my shock at Donald Trump's remarks directed towards London's mayor, who is working hard to deal with the situation--and who needs everyone's good thoughts and support. I never thought I'd see something like that from a US president towards our closest allies. It's utterly appalling. Garagepunk66 (talk) 03:44, 6 June 2017 (UTC)

Prater & Hayes[edit]

Hi, I just created the an article for two blues artists Prater & Hayes. I'm new to looking at the blues, but I noticed you have been involved with the Blues article for some time. Do you know if there is a further way to classify these musicians, a subgenre of the Blues?Jacqke (talk) 11:22, 21 July 2017 (UTC)

The article looks good to me - thanks! Have you thought of making use of the Allmusic articles here and here? I could also add some details of birthplaces and dates. So far as categories are concerned, I'm not a big fan of them - I'm sure other editors will come along and add additional ones in due course. Ghmyrtle (talk) 18:21, 21 July 2017 (UTC)
Your additions are great, thank you!Jacqke (talk) 20:21, 21 July 2017 (UTC)

A favour, or two[edit]

Could you cast your editorial eye over my recent edit(s) on dear old Lonnie Donegan. I have added a sortable wikitable (of sorts) for his singles output, which may need a tweak or two.

Secondly, completely unrelated as such, might you have a look in your trusty Billboard R&B book for the multiple hits emanating from Nolan Strong & the Diablos. My guess is that there just one (maybe two), whereas the article tends to towards a Beatle-esque following. The fancrust based adulation seems to extend to Fortune Records and "The Wind" (from which I've trimmed more than a slight breeze) etc. Did the Velvet Angels achieve anything of vague note ?

All when you have "A Little Time", as we seldom opine in the UK City of Culture. Cheers,

Derek R Bullamore (talk) 00:04, 23 July 2017 (UTC)

As you may (or may not) have noticed, I've reduced my involvement a lot over recent weeks, but I'll get back into the swing of things at some point. I'll take a good look at Lonnie's article in due course (the first record I can remember buying with pocket money was his version of "Tom Dooley"). Regarding Nolan Strong and the Diablos..... they had one record that spent one week on the Billboard R&B chart, and that was "The Way You Dog Me Around", reaching #12 in January 1956. They were certainly locally popular, and perhaps influential more widely... but that's as far as it goes. If you want to start trimming, I may be able to dig out some other sources offline. Ghmyrtle (talk) 09:08, 23 July 2017 (UTC)
Yes I noticed your fall in output, but thought it prudent not to pry. I have edited the diabolical Diablos article further. I too am haphazard in editing at the moment and probably will not get back to regular motion, as it were, until October. As I said in my post - only when you have the time and inclination. Regards as ever,

Grade I listed buildings in Monmouthshire[edit]

Morning Ghmyrtle, can I tap into your local knowledge again? I've been bashing my head against a brick wall trying to reconcile the number of Grade I buildings we have on the Wikipedia page, (53) and the number British Listed Buildings Online give, (54). I think the answer is that the Road Bridge over River Wye, here [1] and Chepstow Bridge, Tidenham, here[2], are in fact the two ends of the same bridge. Is this right? I can understand why bridges get listed twice (both ends), particularly if the ends are in different countries, but it can be confusing! All the best. KJP1 (talk) 09:54, 30 July 2017 (UTC)

p.s. While I'm on, would you have any objection if I added a bridge infobox to Bigsweir Bridge? If you're not a fan, I'll leave it, but I think they are useful for buildings and structures. KJP1 (talk) 10:25, 30 July 2017 (UTC)
Yes - one end of the bridge is in Gloucestershire and the other end in Monmouthshire, so it should not be counted twice - but perhaps a footnote is needed. I've no objection to an infobox - the page was originally at Bigsweir rather than Bigsweir Bridge, which is why one was not included originally. Ghmyrtle (talk) 09:12, 6 August 2017 (UTC)
Many thanks - shall write a note. And give Bigsweir Bridge a box. Had a very enjoyable weekend in Monmouthshire a few weeks ago and bagged a fair few Grade II* listed photos, including St Pierre Hotel Gatehouse. But Mounton House is very difficult to access and Moynes Court impossible! All the best. KJP1 (talk) 12:05, 6 August 2017 (UTC)

I came across their version of "Shades of Gray" only recently.

"Shades of Gray" is overwhelming associated with the Monkees and, for an album track, charted substantially in the States [there were no US singles released from the LP HEADQUARTERS]:

You just corrected[edit]

a nasty error of mine at Jonathan Richman and now I see that you are interested in R&B so I wonder if you will take a look at something for me. In the Rockin' Robin (song) article it lists the Bobby Day version as being Bubblegum music based on some misguided review of Michael Jackson's version. Since Bubblegum as a genre did not happen until 10 years after Day's recording this is ludicrous, only, there it is, with a source. I've left a note at the talk page, which has been ignored, I left a note at the wikipeida songs project that has gone unanswered but i feel that if I have one qualified editor behind me, or in front of me, I'll take this on. To me the song is solid, if somewhat humorous, R&B. Are you interested? Einar aka Carptrash (talk) 04:22, 16 August 2017 (UTC)

Frank "Little Sonny" Scott Jr.[edit]

Having had a dig around, I'm afraid Frank "Little Sonny" Scott Jr. is not notable. Given that he died in May 2017, and the only notice of this I can find is on Facebook, then I think we can safely assume he avoids Wiki notability status. Rather like me, except that I'm still alive.

Yes - I've commented on the article talk page, so it's probably best to have the conversation over there. Ghmyrtle (talk) 14:18, 15 September 2017 (UTC)

Bands and notability[edit]

As you know more about band artciles & Wikipedia:Notability (music) than anyone else I know can I ask for some advice? I've been doing some work on Bristol & Somerset cleanup lists and came across New Rhodes, List of record labels from Bristol, The Ratbites from Hell & List of bands from Bristol which all have tags for cleanup - mostly citations or notability. Is there any chance you could take a look at any of these?— Rod talk 11:09, 23 September 2017 (UTC)

Can I add Pigsty Hill Light Orchestra as another uncited band article.— Rod talk 17:48, 23 September 2017 (UTC)
