Thread Name: Tune Req: Sing Out Back Copies and Scanners
Subject: RE: Tune Req: Sing Out Back Copies and Scanners
Thanks for all the responses via the Forum and PM.

Over the years I think I've collected all or most(ish) of the Reprints from Sing Out. We have discussed this general sunject a number of years back, but I was too lazy to refer to the previous thread before penning this note.

As of today I've created an Index of all the Songs and Tunes that have been published in the Quarterly Sing Out Mag from Mid 1997 until Fall 2004 (whenever that was - does that mean now? The Northern Hemisphere nomenclature confuses me no end.) There's close to 600 of them of which maybe 100 or so are probably instrumental tunes only and maybe a further 50 which don't have MIDIs. So the Index will allow us to locate about 450 songs for which there are MIDIs at the Sing Out site.

The Index will provide an alphabetical listing of songs, the author/singer, a blue clicky to the relevant Sing Out page where the MIDI resides, the Volume Number and Date of Publication plus a description of the Front Cover.

Joe Offer will inevitably have to sanitise my disorderly HTML and may then create a PermaThread - that's Joe's call.

I'll wait for Joe to post and then we can discuss any further developments. He was going away for a couple of weeks, so I'll sit tight for the moment.

Regards, John
