Hey, this is a lot of fun. I was kind of preoccupied while listening, but it really did sound like it could be from one show. I have no idea what song is from what show, but you did a nice job of picking out the good ones! Thanks for all your hard work on this – it must have been a bit of work.

Thanks! Great to hear everyone seems to be liking this. Btw you can find what shows the songs are from in the “track listing” jpeg in the artwork folder.

What kind of paper did you print your booklet on?

I don’t know the exact type but it was a medium-stock semi-gloss from OfficeMax/Depot’s printing services. We tried duplex printing on their premium paper but for some reason they couldn’t get the printers to align the front and back properly but it worked well with the next step down. If you’re using printer services, I don’t know if it’s standard nationwide with OfficeMax/Depot, but they would not print the cd labels on the Avery paper because the labels peel off in their printers. I had to go to FedEx to print those.

This is fantastic excellent job your work is very much appreciated. This is what the band should’ve done by now.

I have a shitload of pics for when you do the 1980 edition.

Thanks for the info on printing and paper. I printed things at home. I first tried the regular paper I use for day to day stuff, which is 24# 99 brightness. Problem is, the text on the colored background wasn’t very readable, even with printing at high-quality. I then switched over to double-sided matt paper, which yielded great results, but the paper is so heavy, I’m worried I won’t get it folded decently for a good booklet. What I really need is double-sided thin photo paper. I found some stuff on Amazon, but it’s about a buck a sheet, and I’m not ready to drop that kind of cash for something I’m not sure is going to work.

So how did you get it it centered stapled?

Oh yeah, I had a little trouble with front and back alignment as well. What I did was print one side at 100%, and then print the other at 101%. The slightly larger image on the one side filled the offset nicely.

I just went with the offset as it was pretty minute but good solution printing at 101%.

For stapling, I put a block eraser under beneath the crease where the staples were to pierce the booklet, swung apart the stapler arms, and pushed a staple through the center into the eraser. Then I carefully pulled the staple and booklet from the eraser and used a ruler to push the staple prongs in to secure it to the booklet. You could probably use corrugated cardboard in lieu of a block eraser.

I located some thinner paper, and re-printed the booklet on that. It turned out decent. I also folded and stapled my first attempt at the booklet, on that heavier paper. Visually, the booklet is fantastic! But it’s too thick to fit into a jewel case. So if anyone wants a great looking booklet, but isn’t using a jewel case, lemme know, I can drop this one into the mail.

Well done sir. It’s a shame the heavier paper won’t fit into a jewel case. I was disappointed the front and back edges didn’t match well enough when it was printed on the heavier paper because it looked really sharp. But that could have been a blessing in disguise. Would have sucked coming home, doing all the trimming, assembling, stapling, etc. only for it to not fit into the jewel case. For the next compilation, I’ll take note on the paper I use to print.

I’m now seeding this collection on JTT so I’m going to take it down from my DropBox as I really need some help with my JTT ratio. Getting shows from sites like JTT are the main sources from which I can create these collections to share so any help over there is much appreciated!

I hate coming late to the party.

Any chance someone could dropbox me on this one? The tunes and the artwork too? My thanks to anyone willing to help, this one sounds intriguing.
