Just attach it to the post.

 

Click the choose more options/upload an image button at the bottom of the normal post window, you'll then see a 'click to attach/upload file' option - use that.

 

Would think that would work?

 

Max file size is 22Mb

Open the file and save it as comma separated .csv. Those are just plain text so you'll probably be able to upload it. Excel sheets can contain macros that can be used to infect your computer.

For anything on any of the Washington based labels, (such as the ET White on Great Potential) you could try

 

http://www.dcsoulrecordings.com/

 

It was set up to catalog and preserve the rich history of Washington D.C. & Maryland Funk, Soul, & R&B music.

The guy who runs it is Kevin Coome, he might have some answers for you.

Not sure what y.o.p -hopes dreams tombstones-colombia is, can't find any info on it. But The list of "political" soul 45s are much bigger than this, this is the 45s that I don't have full info on. 

 

Don't be shy people, anything can help!  :thumbsup:

Tommy why dont you ask the question here (possible survey question) and you should get sufficient replies that you could check off against your list that you have . The end product will be that you have all the submitted ones by SS members or you will have ones that you were not aware of like the YOP.

Just a thought!

Regards Steve

That's a good idea Steve, but I've had a group on facebook for this over the last year or two. I did not know the YOP (Thanks dobber and Sebastian!) and I'm pretty sure the list will never bee 100% complete even thoug I want to.

I can look up almost any of these in copyright and get like an exact date it was copyrighted but it takes a ridiculous amount of time pre-1978 because you have to go through the books.

My source is the discographies on the web and R&B Indies. I do not have access to the  copyright books and I understand the time that will take. My master thesis is based on the 45s with complete info so it's not that important. Thanks anyway Bob!
