Mark Flora : Bruce! Great to see you're still at it! Looking forward to all the good stuff this site will bring. Cheers and best to ya! Mark
Toxic Melons : cheers, sent!
Mike Hodges : You are right about that, Bruce. I *also* have a 2004 CD by The Other Half that contains 5 songs recorded in New Jersey. I was hoping it was the right one. Still haven't listened to it.
dudeman : Nice find, Mike - that "The Other Half" cd is tricky to find because the SEO on it is so generic and most of the time the 60s band comes up in most searches so it does take a little digging to locate a copy of this one....
Mike Hodges : I'm looking forward to the next Power Pop Prime book. After expanding my want list after reading the last one, I discovered a gem - "The Other Half" Their song "Make believe" is a masterpiece that not only soars, but it sticks the landing. Pure power pop bliss in 3 or so minutes. I can't wait to discover more hidden gems! Keep It Up, Bruce!
Toxic Melons : Great! what email address should I send it to? can't seem to find one
dudeman : Yes, drop the link - go right ahead!
Toxic Melons : Hey, I've launched a kick-starter for my new album, Bus Therapy. It features guys like Linus Of Hollywood, Eric Dover, Taylor Locke and Chris Price. Can I email a dropbox link for review? I have no physical thing yet since the kick-starter is up

Carlos Ramirez : Hi Bruce - I'm new to the site, and I wanted to see if there was a way to include a search button somewhere. I just want to see if you've posted stuff about specific artists. I ordered the book and can't wait to dig in!

Thom Bonafede : Blair Gilley...Bought your 2012 ep and I gotta tell ya, I liked it all but "What You Do To Yourself" is one of my favorite songs of the last few years. That melody is ear candy of the highest calibur. Looking forward to hearing more of your work.

Blair Gilley : Bruce, I am interested in having my music associated with PopGeek Heaven. I was formerly in two signed power pop bands. (Flight case For Sushi & GoodNight City) and I'm now doing the solo thing in Nashville. I’d really like to get my two EP’s on the site. Please visit www.blairgilley. com to hear and see what I'm all about and please let me know if I can submit something for review. I few recent blurbs from others are below. I appreciate your time and consideration. Blair Gilley blairgill
Steve Maser : Cristobel -- I asked Bruce and he couldn't find the disks to answer that one! That's the only one I haven't been able to figure out, either...
Cristobal Eblen : I'm slowly getting through the awesome CD packages Bruce sent out. I'm trying to figure out the 4th cut on 'Obscure 60s Garage.' It's listed as I Found You by the British Walkers (actually the previous cut), but I can't figure out the song...the chorus has the phrase "She'll be mine, forever." What is this song & who's doing it?
dudeman : LANCELOT LINK in "Lost Treasures, this one is (really) awesome - «link»
Eric Barao : Thank you so much, Steve VanWieren & Elizabeth! Really appreciate the kind words
Elizabeth Racz : Yes, Eric Barao's album is a dream
