johnross Bob Gibson Web Site Launched (21) RE: Bob Gibson Web Site Launched 24 Aug 06


There's a lot of good, solid information on that site, but the design has some serious problems. The black background and tiny text font (at 1024 x 768) makes it extremely difficult to read.And many of the LP covers are lost against the black background.

Also, the discography is not complete. It does not include the Riverside "Chicago Mob Scene: A Folk Song Jam Session" LP (RLP-12-641), where Bob appeared as "Sam Hall," the Vanguard LPs from the Newport Folk Festivals ("Folk Festival at Newport 1959, Volume 2," VRS-9063/VSD-2054 with Joan Baez; and "The Newport Folk Festival 1960, Volume 2," VRS-9084/VSD-2088 with Bob Camp), or the "Courtship of Carl Sandburg" cassette.

Ben Cohen assembled a much more complete BG discography almost ten years ago. The final version is not longer online, but you can find an early version at http://www.lyon.edu/webdata/users/kadler/public_html/rmcguinn/gibson.html

It also misses all the reissues and "various artists" collections that include tracks from his records. And you spelled "Elektra" consistently wrong.

It would also be very helpful to have the catalog numbers and alternate covers of all the LPs included in their descriptions.

As a work in progress, that site has great potential. But if it's supposed to be a finished product, it leaves a lot to be desired.
