Just thought I'd mention that the old Gigliola Cinquetti video that I made (on my one-video personal channel) has become the first of my videos to reach 200,000 views. It's beaten all my Hayley videos to that target, aaarghhhhhhhhh!!!!!
I have probably ticked up a number of those views.
I am still hoping for a re release of the 1974 CBS / Sugar album Go before you break my heart on CD. It is one of the very few LPs I have taken the trouble to record onto cd for convenience, I still listen to it quite a bit, even with the snap, crackle, and pop of vinyl, just like a real coal fire it brings back wonderful warm memories of a more carefree time in life

Meanwhile, my video (as you eventually worked out ) has now clocked up nearly 3.5 million views!
I could now produce an improved version of it, with a bit of extra film I discovered, but it's probably better to let the original continue to fly, I think. It always gets a boost around Eurovision time of the year!
Many of the comments are in foreign languages these days but I do occasionally check for English ones and it's nice to read comments like this one a month ago:
While stationed in Bremerhaven 1963-66, I heard this beautiful song on German radio and rushed down to the local record store and bought it. I still have it to this day. Such a beautiful song and still resonates with me to this day.
Thanks for the heads-up Paul, I do occasionally see people do these copies like the 2nd. one and if I ask them to replace it by a playlisted version and they refuse, Youtube will usually take them down.
The top video is interesting as it's popped up again after I first saw it many years ago, it soon got taken down for some reason. Not before I copied the video though, just in case.
I considered re-doing mine, using that one to help fill the gaps, but I'd accumulated so many views by then and it would have taken so long to do a good job with it that I never got round to it. If I ever decide to do it, I would PM the channel owner to ask for agreement and in that case, it would make sense for us both to host the new combined one (still leaving my original up, with a link). Matching the brightness levels between the many short clips would of course be very tricky!
even if you only use it to see the album and seven inch single sleeves and photos, Discogs is a fantastic resource, but you can also use it to buy and sell just like Ebay. ( I am not at all tempted, lead us not into temptation, by all those lovely album sleeves)
