Subject: Shanty Discography project
From: GUEST,Bob Walser
Date: 09 Jun 13 - 12:55 PM

Years ago I began cataloging my shanty records into a dBase database including information about all the tracks, performer etc. Over the years I've added information about other recordings that I don't own myself so it is pretty comprehensive with respect to LPs, less so with CDs and pretty spotty as far as cassettes (remember them?).

I'd like to put the whole thing online and enable crowd-sourced additions and corrections.

But I don't know how to do it and don't have the time to take on the project. I'd be happy to host it on my website if I could find someone who could 1) convert my dBase files (a songs file linked to an albums file) to mysql or some such and 2) create an interface for searching/displaying (I suspect my old Approach files are no longer useful!) and 3) a process for creating/editing the content.

I'll be there is someone with a passion for shanties and the requisite time and skill set. Comments here or through my website will be most welcome.
