Section 3 - Oranges and Lemons - PL OK
(If you want it to be perfect, though I noticed that at:
Oranges and lemons, says the bells of St. Clemen’s;
You owe me five farthings, says the bells of St. Martin’s;
When will you pay me, says the bells of Old Bailey;
When I grow rich, says the bells of Shoreditch;
When will that be? says the bells of Stepney;
I do not know, says the great bell

The bell was pronounced bell(s), but it's not a big deal, at least I think)

I did notice, though, that for the first section, there is 6 seconds of silence, and in the following two sections, there are only 4 seconds. Is this a big deal? I marked them PL OK, since I don't know what to do. Everything else seems fine!

Thanks! I'll double check them all and decide about the bell(s) mistake as soon as I can :)

Yeah. I don't know if this is a big deal, I guess it's your choice. :) Though I don't know whether I should mark them See PL Notes or just PL OK. I have seen in many projects to mark them See PL Notes, though I don't know what to do.

After reviewing, I think the silence and the wrong word should be OK. If I'm wrong, I'll be glad to change it. Just let me know!

I did check the silence. I record in Reaper and put a section of room tone at the end that is around 5 seconds so I'm not sure why it is coming up more and less than 5 on some of the sections :hmm:

I have a couple of projects for work that suddenly popped up so my schedule may be a little full the next few weeks. I'll try to record more sections when I get a chance :)

As an extra set of eyes/ears, I took a look at the silences, too. They all look fine to me. It could be, depending on what you're using to listen to the files, that the playback program is rounding up or down, and that might skew it a bit. I'd say, if it looks like 4 or 6 seconds, then that'll be fine. But if it seems to be further off than that, then it could be a problem.

Jenn, if you plan to claim your cover as either BC or Soloist, don't forget to preclaim it at Volunteer CD Covers Forum, and put a notation somewhere (maybe at bottom of the first post) that you've done that and claim has been accepted. Preclaim number can be found in lower left of screen when you hover over the BCAdmin link of the MW. Please excuse if you already know this because I see you've already done a cover on your first solo.

Thanks Michele! I didn’t think of putting the cover being claimed in a post. I haven’t claimed this one yet but did claim the cover for The Woman in the Alcove that I’m almost finished with. Is there a way to check the claim was accepted? I had preclaimed the cover for my first solo but it didn’t get marked or something and someone else then claimed it. It all got sorted out but would be nice to know if the claims got accepted.
