File:Black Sabbath Vol 4 rear cover.jpg.tiff[edit]

This is a courtesy notice that I resized the image to comply with non-free content criteria WP:NFCC, and slightly color corrected it to compensate for ink fade. I sized it at the outer boundaries of non-free image dimensions; this still preserves the level of scene detail present in the scan. --Lexein (talk) 16:16, 22 November 2012 (UTC)

Moving of the Triad page[edit]

Hi! I see you moved Triad (David Crosby song) to Triad (Byrds song) back on May 29th. I'm not sure that this was really the best place to move the article. I have two problems with this move: firstly, although The Byrds recorded the song in 1967, their version went unreleased for 20 odd years and therefore the two most recognizable or famous versions of the song -- both to music fans in the late '60s/early '70s and contemporary listeners -- are undoubtedly the Jefferson Airplane cover or the version that appears on Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young's 4 Way Street album. Secondly, if we accept that the disambiguation should mention The Byrds, then the article should've been moved to Triad (The Byrds song), in the same way as The Beatles' song "Revolution" is located at Revolution (The Beatles song), since the leading article "The" is a part of The Byrds' band name, just as it is for The Beatles.

To my mind, the disambiguation of (David Crosby song) may’ve not been perfect, but it was the best fit, since The Byrds' are not the most recognizable artist associated with the song (as they should be per WP:TITLE) and it's not really a Jefferson Airplane song either. As I say, even if we are to use The Byrds as a disambiguation suffix for the article (something I disagree with), it should really be located at Triad (The Byrds song). I'd be interested in your thoughts on this matter. Kohoutek1138 (talk) 15:54, 24 July 2013 (UTC)

Its a tricky one. Your right about how the Jefferson Airplane cover and the version that appears on Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young's 4 Way Street were more recognizable at the time. I also agree that Triad (The Byrds song) is better than Triad (Byrds song). I can't think of any better solution than Triad (The Byrds song), seeing as Crosby was an active member of the Byrds when the song was written, they performed it in late August and early September 1967 at the Whisky A Go Go under the title "Why Can't We Go On And Live?" ['Triad'] and they recorded it first during the Notorious Byrd Brothers sessions. Even though the song remained unreleased until the 1980's, I believe the reasons above are rather significant and strong enough to cement and reinforce the move.
Lastly, I do think the Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young's 4 Way Street version deserves its own info box, seeing as its rather notable.

Good points above. So, are you OK with me moving the article to Triad (The Byrds song) then? I'll also add the CSN&Y infobox while I'm at it. Kohoutek1138 (talk) 15:52, 5 August 2013 (UTC)
Most definitely. I'll add some info about when they played the song at the Whisky A Go Go, and maybe some more information about the song in general.
Rvd4life (talk) 18:27, 5 August 2013 (UTC)
OK, it's done and I've tidied up any double redirects stemming from the original (David Crosby song) page. Would be great if you want to add some more info about the Byrds' playing the song at the Whisky A Go Go or any other info for that matter. Kohoutek1138 (talk) 09:52, 6 August 2013 (UTC)

With the Beatles[edit]

No problems, how anyone can doubt that the Beatles were a pop group is beyond me Jimfbleak - talk to me? 16:40, 2 October 2013 (UTC)


Am I misunderstanding you? It seems that Allmusic lists the album with folk rock, but I don't use them much, so I might be mistaken. GabeMc (talk|contribs) 22:40, 23 January 2014 (UTC)

I too think the album is "folk-rock". I recently tried adding it to the info box, but it was difficult finding a strong source to back it up. The genre highlights on Allmusic change all the time and many popular artists get chucked onto the lists without musically having anything to do with the genre i.e. Dylan and psychedelia. Rvd4life (talk) 22:50, 23 January 2014 (UTC)

Did Dan56 stop you from adding it because he said that your source wasn't good enough? GabeMc (talk|contribs) 23:00, 23 January 2014 (UTC)
I believe he did. The source was lifted from the folk rock historian Richie Unterberger on his website. The source said "within the context of folk-rock, it's notable for several songs that show a definite folk-rock influence", which to me sounds fitting, especially with the likes of Mr. Tambourine Man and Bringing It All Back Home being released in the same year. But oh well.Rvd4life (talk) 23:13, 23 January 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, that's the same source I found, and I thought it was more than enough. GabeMc (talk|contribs) 23:19, 23 January 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 30[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited David Hemmings Happens, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Bill Martin (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Track list numbering[edit]

There is currently a Rfc and discussion at Template talk:Track listing#RfC regarding track listings, about how the songs in a track listing should be numbered. The result could have repercussions for every article of albums originally released in vinyl. If you are interested, please join in the discussion there.
