If there had been more to work with, the sweeter mix may have worked, but the tracks were just too raw. So we used this version, and the engineer asked his name be taken off the mixing credit, but I love it as Beats Employed - Tennant* / Barabash* / Lewis* - Oldsmobile (Vinyl).
This just does not fit anywhere. DB sensed that Springsteen was a major new talent well ahead of the curve. I imagine David thought Bruce would become the new Lou Reed - not an unreasonable conclusion, based on the first couple of records. Obviously Bruce took a different turn.
God bless the 8 track. There's an app we need; one that inserts 8-track style breaks in our mp3s! Conversely, new listeners would find material that felt like familiar friends, even as they were hearing them for the first time. And of course, it brings closure to the decade with the death of Major Tom.
Maybe his best song, it completely defies conventional song structure, but is incredibly satisfying. This felt shockingly contemporary and the structure is pretty traditional. It seemed like it would go down well with the newbies. Plus great guitar stuff. German version as I was hoping to steer clear of multiple versions of the same song on the parent album not always an attainable goal.
Also, it probably goes without saying that flow from song to song was a consideration. But there, I said it anyway. I would've included the studio version, but again, I think this smokes it, in terms of intensity. It spoke to Bowie's break from tradition, and to the quality of the source album. Again, what I consider a superior live interpretation, especially the second half.
Just an amazing track. One of his best vocal performances too. Great track of course, but Scary Monsters is full of them. I liked how the lyrics explore looking at history and moving forward at the same time, yet in a comforting way. Plus Fripp. I like Tom Verlaine and Bowie acknowledging the Television frontman and therefore early NYC punk felt like an important connection to make. Because coming back to Major Tom is the perfect circle. I lobbied to license the original version of Cat People and Under Pressure because I love them both so much but it seemed unlikely given our deadlines.
In retrospect I'm happier they landed on the Singles collection than here. The box itself, the booklet design, and then, in a unique opportunity we had in that brief window when it looked like CD-V might be a thing, a music video. Bowie was of course lauded for his music videos. But, while the earlier videos were groundbreaking and he looks great, was the height of MTV and compared to the multi-million dollar productions by lesser talents ranging from Michael Jackson and Poison, they looked clunky.
Since you needed a laserdisc to watch it, I doubt many did, anyway — but Ryko was always about early adoption of technology and we had no idea if the format was going to thrive or survive. In a way that review is a precursor to this post; the motivation behind the choices for the box set track list. Wikipedia entry regarding the content of the box:.
This box set was originally conceived in as less of a comprehensive career retrospective than as a "teaser" for the then-upcoming Rykodisc CD reissue campaign covering Bowie's output from to Conversely, some rarities were reserved exclusively for the Rykodisc re-releases and do not appear in this release. Seriously, fuck whoever wrote that. Plus, I'm pretty sure it doesn't meet Wikipedia's standards for documentation as it's pure conjecture.
Why do people automatically assume the box or any box should be a greatest hits set, or worse, that it was designed to appear deceptively as a greatest hits set? Because some versions of his hits are alternate versions?
We never marketed it as a hits collection, we never implied that was our intention, and it certainly was not. Remember, we were compilation averse - fans had enough of cheap, cash-in RCA comps. This would hopefully bring in new fans, who were, in many cases, in diapers when he was taking off.
I wanted them to digest and understand the myth of Bowie and his discography. CD was still relatively new at that point; besides the obvious, music fans bought CDs including box sets because the format re-energized the marketplace; so much great music was being reissued — every week, worthy recordings that had been out of print for a decade or more were flooding back into stores. It was an amazing era of rediscovery. Bowie had superstar status in Europe and much of the rest of the world. Stateside, untilBowie was a large-ish cult artist with a few hits.
For example, consider this; I was 26 years old in Well, who cares, you may ask? I was too young; I missed it. Lots of people missed it, only because of when they were born. Loved them. Both songs got some mainstream airplay, but he was already done with RCA, and looking forward. They were teens. I realize that may read as a harsh evaluation and outside of the US, possibly an unimaginable onebut the always self-aware Bowie was unbeknownst to us reinventing himself as a member of a stripped-down rock band.
Rumors said the EMI relationship that had started with so much promise was now soured. Promoting the undeniable greatness of the RCA period was pure myth-building; it put the focus on the years of innovation just as he returned to a pure rock band format, recalling, at least in theory, the Ziggy years. The guy is a genius, on many levels — including manipulation of his history.
EMI seemed to be feigning their enthusiasm for Tin Machine, in my view, anyway. My goal was to curate an extremely listenable box that sampled roughly equally from each album, showing that there was more to Bowie than the better-known; that there was progression, innovation and delightful surprises to be had from any of his records — even the ones that had been ignored — even the live albums. And we really wanted it to be cutting edge; worthy of Bowie - both in terms of presentation and content — hence the directive from President Don Rose to spare not expense.
All of these components not only made the box better, but they made it more difficult and costly to manufacture, which drove up the price. And it all started with the tracklist. When I listen to it today, I still think it holds up. We wanted the box to have a compelling track list, a beautiful presentation, and state of the art sound. Dream on — nothing with Bowie is ever as simple as it seems. Without reservation I again assure you, with the technology available at the time, we got the most true reproductions of those tapes as we could.
In other words, we tried very hard to give you the same listening experience Bowie, his producers and engineers had listening to playback in the studio. Whatever works for you, but remember this is pure opinion. These are the tapes I mentioned seeing in the New Jersey vault, labeled as cassette masters, and referred to as CD sources in the catalog of materials I got from Isolar. The engineer goes on to say they sourced other tapes from the UK for their masters, and that these were better sources.
But at the same time the engineer states that all of the Bowie materials had to be sourced from the US as Bowie was signed through the US office. It sounds these RCA engineers went off the reservation in an effort to do the best job they could. There are sites where sound quality is debated incessantly and matters of opinion are stated as fact with frightening regularity and a beyond-startling level of surety.
Memory is so much more important than we give it credit for. When Toby Mountain at his Northeastern Digital lab remastered some of the Bowie titles using 20 bit for the AU20 Gold series in the mid's the technology and understanding of digital remastering had evolved, and Toby felt the sonic improvements were significant for most of those titles.
I can assure you the Ryko Bowie CDs were When we released the whole album later, it was from analog unmastered 2 tracks. That pure un-eq'd starting point alone will have a drastic affect on how you perceive the recording if you've been listening to EQ'd versions for years. The only way you'll ever know how true they are to the original mixing and studio engineering choices is if you get to hear the original two-tracks or even the multi-tracks.
Good luck! That said, please don't let stressing about these tweaks get in the way of enjoying the music! Of course, your mileage may vary, but I feel like we got all we could out of the master tapes and a LOT of effort was put into that job. We absolutely switched out the Changes master to the AU20 version, partially to get "Fame '90" off and the hit version of "Fame" on. Not sure if anyone has ever tested them to see if later silver Ryko Hunky CDs utilize the AU20, but this post may start a new easter egg hunt.
Not that this should have any impact on your preference, but I know Bowie himself listened to and approved our original remasters - and he liked them a lot. So much so, that after the deal expired his office would call and ask if we had any copies left, as he preferred ours to the EMI issues. They sounded compressed and a bit screechy to me. No-one was expecting this, right? That's not exactly true; right when this came out two very nice catalog reissue websites each offered to post it when I finished it.
Unfortunately, I was nearly done when I had to abandon the review. Well, as the title says, it was days ago when "Nothing Has Changed" was released. The sites passed when I finally finished it, and I can hardly blame them.
I think the extra time helped the thoughts I was having then crystalized over time, so that's a bonus. On the other hand, this may be the thing that stops readers from reading the site, so if I alienate any of you, my apologies in advance.
I am nothing if not honest and opinionated. This seems like the very definition of a contradiction. I am open to accepting tracks can be improved by post-origination tampering, but only a few here meet that criteria. So what is the intent behind this set? I have a theory and it is only a theory.
The two and one disc versions are far less interesting and all feature material culled from the 3 disc version, with no additional tracks. Surely distilling fifty years of music to a measly three CDs would yield nothing but classics? If only. Yes, that sounds extremely cynical, but the proof is in the ones and zeroes.
Furthermore, his voice or is it his delivery? A wise man once noted that how you navigate through something is intrinsic to your understanding of it — for instance, if you watch the infamous video of the Rodney King beating backwards it looks like the cops are helping King onto his feet and sending him on his way. This kind of perverse time-bending seems like something Bowie would enjoy tinkering with.
Haunting, simple, impeccably arranged and sung in a voice that perfectly suits the subject matter, it made me over-ly optimistic about the album it preceded. Best left alone. Then Maurice De Vries shows up and all of a sudden, this listener perks up!
It should be on every Bowie and Queen compilation and probably every compilation ever. The Berlin records feel under-served. Making an album a year seems like a good idea says the guy who can barely update his own website monthly. This is pedestrian work from someone we expect so much from, but early work rarely is fully-formed. And this is quite possibly the point of the set in the first place; the life of an artist itself; artists start out on shaky legs, attempting to emulate their heroes and naively share their own early life experiences.
And inevitably the true artist grows older, wearier, maybe less energetic but still seeking, thinking, exploring, and most importantly, creating. Putting compilations together properly is all about having a viewpoint and making choices that illustrate your position. Consider this choice; if you could own only one Bowie record single or album, no cheating with compilations! Older, sure. On one hand, almost all of these tracks were out in the world already, so what does it matter if they are collected here?
I am only theorizing about the point of this thing. Or maybe someone threw a tracklist in front of him and he rubber-stamped it. Who knows? The mystery just makes it more fun to speculate. A year ago, almost to the day of the 25th Anniversary, Rhino Records pooped out an even more squished down version of the expanded version EMI released in with little fanfare a year later, Amazon doesn't even sell it themselves, preferring to let 3rd party suppliers handle it.
There are no bonus tracks appended to the albums, instead Five Years comes with Re:Call 1 an exclusive two disc compilation of non-album singles, single versions and B-sides. And of course they missed stuff, too. In honor of all these "events" I will be updating the site with three loooong - and long overdue Bowie posts this weekend, starting tonight.
I will have another post within a week — promise! This saved a ton of time and kept me relatively sane. There were hundreds of tapes in what seemed like just as many formats.
In this case, DAT —a relatively new, and now completely irrelevant, format. Because there were often multiple copies of tapes of each album, Toby and his team were taking copious notes as they ran the flat transfers. If they found something that was particularly interesting or Beats Employed - Tennant* / Barabash* / Lewis* - Oldsmobile (Vinyl), that was annotated as well. With rare exception, the tapes were labeled, but we had no idea if anyone had actually made sure the tape inside the box matched the description on the outside.
Some tapes were in very rough shape. But, if improperly stored, the fragile tapes start to break down. It was terrifying to open a box and see little bits of dark tape fall out. There are sometimes ways to rescue these tapes. At the time, one of newest developments was baking the tapes.
This is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. You have to very carefully put the failing tapes into an oven, and hope the shredding oxide cooks itself back onto the plastic. It sometimes works with great results. We made every effort to breathe life back into the 16 track masters for those, but they were lost.
For the multitracks they did quick mixes on the fly, some of which ended up being used, even when there were second attempts to mix them with more care — the earlier roughs just sounded better. They would send me a blue folder with a DAT in one packet and bound in copies of the covers of each tape box.
They were still sharing ownership or at least participation in the profits of all the records from Space Oddity to Station To Station. I was so intimidated by legends of DeFries' ferocity that I kept a cropped version of this picture encompassing just Tony's head and redonkulous afro on my desk so that whenever he'd call, I could look at it and realize he was not someone I should feel intimidated by.
It worked quite nicely. There were no multi-tracks of Station To Station and beyond sessions, and virtually no extra tracks for any of those records. Probably feeling his finances were being looked after, Bowie may have had a serious re-think about his spending once the expensive Diamond Dogs tour ended and the cracks in his relationship with DeFries started to show.
There were recordings missing from the early years, too, but in general I found much of what I was looking for in the vault. So I had to get a three CD track list together, come up with a stunning, revolutionary package, appease David Bowie and my bosses, but especially the fans — and I only had about a month to do it. Thanks for your e-mails with kind words and questions. When you think of a vault holding such precious materials despite it being in New Jersey what comes to mind is a high-tech, climate-controlled facility under very secure guard.
This was NOT the case. As I remember it, there was a low wall around the entire complex. Inside were low single story? A surly worker led us to a cell in one of the buildings.
It was late spring and the concrete walls were sweaty with cooling moisture. Audiotapes and abandoned boxes were all over the place. Isolar wanted to make sure they at least had one copy of each of the Bowie albums. So much for the asinine theory that all early CDs were flat-transferred from the original unmastered stereo mixes. We had copies of the analog tapes towards the bottom of the list, except for Rare.
I sweet-talked Alicia into letting me those tapes as they were the only sources I could see for some of the stuff we needed. I asume all the source tapes for the songs on this comp are still in an RCA vault in the country that assembled the master. They weren't in the Jersey vault. Off his books and onto ours. Clever guy. I will have to dig out the actual address but it was in an unassuming industrial park in a typical suburban town Northwest of Boston.
Pretty sure it was somewhere in the rte. After our bonded art guys loaded up the truck, we bid farewell and I flew to Boston. The next day I set out early to Safesite to handle the ingestion of the materials. Isolar had a numbering system I quickly recognized as flawed multiple uses of the same number for the different items, etc.
The design was pretty thin, but it had a built in handle to be carried like a suitcase and was heavy enough to be swung as a deadly weapon. I once slipped on ice in back steps of my Minneapolis apartment, and it flew away, bouncing down the frozen stone stairs.
Although its sturdy exterior had a small crack, the primitive beast functioned without skipping a beat. I arrived at Safesite with the latest version of dbase and a mission: catalog every scrap in the vault. The helpful staff set me up at a large table in the middle of one of these rooms. It was dark and shelves of files surrounded me. It was cold, but sterile with smooth concrete floors. The ceiling was equipped with a Halon or Bromotrifluoromethane gas system that would act like a fire sprinkler system.
If fire Beats Employed - Tennant* / Barabash* / Lewis* - Oldsmobile (Vinyl) detected in any area of the building, the doors would seal within seconds and the gas would be released, sucking all the oxygen out of the room and extinguishing the flame. Typical music biz danger would be getting a drink spilled on you at a bar or having a heart attack from too much coke. Here I would've died if someone lit a match. In all the weeks I was cataloging, I rarely saw another person in the room.
As soon as Safesite cataloged a Bowie item into their system, it was sent up to my desk, where I examined and catalogued it again, using our own system. At first this was exciting, but after cataloging the umpteenth cassette master of David Live for the Philippine market, it started to feel like the relentless, heads-down, grind it out work it was. Remember, I had a target list of unreleased material we were hoping to find.
Billboard magazine article on the newly opened CD Establishment store I ran. Rykodisc mentioned peripherally as one of many things Rob Simonds did at the time.
Later, we made up our own fake Billboard alliterative headlines. There was a great one about Jimmy Buffet dying in a boating catastrophe. Records titles and the label was profitable. The same year, Ryko hired me as a consultant. We later adopted the more famous ESD "guy" logo, which was a silhouette I'd lifted from some clip art.
That summer, we got word the Bowie RCA catalog was available and the parties started to feel each other out. Could Ryko swing that kind of advance? Would Bowie buy into our vision of the re-releases? Did he even know who the hell we were? By fall there was some real hope we were in the running and in January ofI started at Ryko full-time. My first assignment was to write a proposal for the Bowie catalog, which was completed and delivered in less than a month. Amazingly, I still have a copy of the finished proposal, a surprisingly simple, unassuming document.
Mine is marked up with Beats Employed - Tennant* / Barabash* / Lewis* - Oldsmobile (Vinyl) notes, some of which I need to decipher. My original copy of the proposal. I think the scrawlings at the top were references to the various dbase files I created while cataloging the vault.
A quick side-note: In the course of researching a Bowie-related lawsuit years ago, I came across a copy of the original contract in my archives, hand-signed by Bowie. Ryko sometimes copied relevant departments on contracts, mostly so the heads of those departments could refer to them for deal parameters without having to consult with the Business Affairs team. This was helpful in budgeting, licensing, permissions, etc. I vaguely recall getting it at the time.
The proposal optimistically shows a very different campaign than the one that actually ensued. Ina new album with bonus tracks and an accompanying CD single and CDV for each album, all sold separately, and each with unique content. This was by far the biggest deal Ryko had ever contemplated entering into, so perhaps those extra items may have been a fiscal safety net in order to maximize the catalog and recoup a historically large advance.
Keep in mind we had not seen the Bowie archives at this point. We had no idea if Bowie would approve the release of every track we hoped to utilize, and some of them were only rumored to exist. Other known recordings were owned by third parties — meaning we would have to license BBC sessions or TV appearances, for instance.
This gave buyers breathing room between titles to allow anticipation to build, and prevented Bowie-fatigue. I recall opposing this idea, and luckily fate intervened, although we eventually released a two CD Best Of.
It also bagged the Christianne F. To be clear, I was not the only architect of this proposal, nor was I involved except peripherally in this the legal and financial aspects.
My responsibility was the creative side, including the release plan. I began researching the catalog, hunting down tapes, bootlegs, fan publications and any books I could get my hands on. Pre-internet, research was grinding it out; digging and getting your hands dirty.
They helped immeasurably, supplying import books and oddball records. If the subjects of his books are any indication, Mr.
Thompson and I share similar musical tastes glam, early punk, hard rock, flamboyant rock, etc. He actually references my response to the article he wrote bitching about the campaign, but neatly sidesteps the fact that he wrote the offending piece in the first place.
In an effort to keep their origins anonymous, most bootlegs were sold in plain white sleeves with printed inserts trapped under the shrinkwrap. A lot of the info on inserts was dubious if not downright wrong or even missingwith incorrect song titles, recording locations, etc.
This is hardly surprising considering the method by which the material was sourced. Thus, three of my Bowie boots had hand-written track lists on plain white sleeves, all scrawled by the previous owner, and, I assume, copied from the original now lost inserts. Another bootleg was a cassette of rehearsals for the Serious Moonlight tour in Dallas with Stevie Ray Vaughan on guitar.
A weird pairing destined to not happen. Note the Dame is still nicotine addicted at this point. Although Vaughan never played a single date, the subsequent tour stuck to that bootleg set list and was all the better for it. I saw the show in Hartford, CT and Bowie proved his point in a happy, upbeat performance, propelled largely by enthusiasm and rarely by gimmicks. The show and that rehearsal tape left lasting impressions. Anyway, negotiations went along with moments of high hopes, often quickly shattered.
I made a few trips to the Isolar offices in New York, where we met with various associates about our plans. Bowie was on board to add extra tracks, and he insisted the CDs be released at full price, not mid-price. This was not an issue for us - we had never imagined it any other way. Honestly, there were few, if any mid-price CDs in those days — at least in the US. For whatever reason, EMI and Bowie could not see eye to eye and the deal successfully closed at Rykodisc.
When we approached him about licensing his catalog for CD, he felt obligated to run it by his then-current label partner. This put the Zappa catalog at Ryko, which led to Hendrix, which led to Bowie, etc, etc. Rykodisc was a small label, but enough of a heavy hitter in North America to handle the Bowie catalog in that territory and maybe even in parts of Asiabut while we had good partners in Europe, they were largely distributors, not marketers.
We had to hurry if we were going to get anything out inwhich was the plan. Another compilation; feeding the beast or a serious look at a 40 year career? But to me, and probably anyone else my age, the rush of punk energy made earlier music seem prehistoric and uninteresting. So the thinking was that inthere was potentially a whole new audience that wasn't aware of music pre-Guns N Roses who could be introduced to this amazing body of work — not only through a new, comprehensive career overview, but also through the new-ish CD format.
Vinyl was done, the cassette, coughing up blood. It was, in a way, the birth of the catalog market. Prior to this, the labels would let records fall out of print and that was usually the end of it unless a miracle happened. Shockingly low projections filled the pages, but the reissued Changesone never an updated version was always the title with the highest numbers. When Ryko released Changesbowie, it sold half a million Gold in the first year, and eventually went on to sell a million Platinum.
If we were going to reintroduce his history to a new audience, a single disc was not going to do the job. To make sense of the decade of towhere Bowie careened stylistically all over the game board, only a grander package and ensuing catalog campaign would do. At this point, there were really only two benchmarks worth looking at. Polygram had recently issued an Eric Clapton box set. Clapton was benefitting from renewed interest. The package itself was ostentatious in size only.
This rainy day, lazy packaging would not serve Bowie. The other catalog that had gotten better than average treatment was the Beach Boys. Their Capitol records had been released as 2on1 CDs with extra tracks and great booklets, packed with lots of pictures and scholarly, interesting, liner notes.
Nice job, Capitol! I wish we could've included liner notes in the Bowie albums. My plan was to release the Bowie albums individually by which, I mean not as 2on1swith lots of extra tracks - some in two CD editions, which was unimaginable at that point. I also wanted to include liner notes, Bowie did not.
He wanted the booklets to have credits and pictures; nothing else. If we were going to put his career in context, it was going to be in a box set, not in the individual album releases. With these restrictions, it was easy to decide what the box should be — an extremely listenable compilation of highlights of those years, with an emphasis on covering all the bases. It needed to show how interesting Bowie was, and how important, influential and GREAT his 70's music had been, while maintaining a flow in the track listing - not an easy task considering Bowie was a genre-hopping musical chameleon; elevating glam rock one minute and warping Philly soul the next.
But before I could propose a track listing to Bowie, I needed to get into his vault. I'd later find out it wasn't the vault I'd hoped it would be; and even worse - it was in New Jersey. In my first post, I placed Bowie's status in context. The rights to Ziggy Stardust: The Motion Picture, were still RCA's as they released it in and that contract was still in effect, although due to expire shortly thereafter.
Which brings us to RCA. His career arc from Ziggy Stardust to Young Americans was just what they wanted, but when he delivered Low, they were dumbfounded.
RCA tried, but it choked out at 69 and there were no other singles from the album. So when "Heroes" was delivered, RCA gave up hope and seemingly wrote Bowie off, at least in the US, where he did not chart again until Fashion hit 70 in By then, Bowie was done with RCA and looking for a new home.
But RCA was not done with Bowie. In RCA had licensed a very good compilation to K-Tel, which was sold via TV and included some interesting edits in order to squeeze as many tracks as possible 16! This started an avalanche of RCA cash-in comps. Earlier in '81, the Christianne F soundtrack album appeared, an all-Bowie record that doubled as someone's idea of a Best Of the Berlin period with a few Station To Station tracks thrown in.
It oddly went to 3 in Australia but was never issued in the US until This was quickly followed by the unnecessary Changestwobowie RCA even issued a single, Wild Is The Wind, which stiffedand the mop-up collection Bowie Rare b-sides, ep tracks, etcwhich never saw release in the US.
Then Let's Dance exploded. Driven by the enthusiasm and promotional firepower of a new label, the power of the barely two years old MTV network, and an easy-to-digest-in-the-US image guy in yellow suitBowie became an indisputable worldwide superstar in a way few including Bowie himself had ever imagined possible.
By SeptemberModern Love had become the third hit from Let's Dance, an album with only 8 songs. Decca regurgitated their old Bowie tracks in a variety of permutations, as they had for years. They followed it up the next year with Golden Years, an equally nonsensical, exploitative set with another '83 cover photo. In these pre-digital days, hardcore fans felt like they had to buy everything.
They were rightly quite frustrated with the pointless, poorly assembled, cash-in compilations RCA was foisting on them. Amidst all this, CDs came along. Introduced in in Japan, and then in to Europe and North America, the CD was not considered a serious format by most major labels, who assumed it was nothing more than a fad designed to appeal to a small group of audiophiles. As we now know, they were, very, very wrong.
Rykodisc, formed earlier inissued their first CD in late Stage was only released in Europe. Still, David was considered the first major artist to have almost his whole catalog on CD. The company knew their rights were expiring and wanted to milk the catalog for all it was worth. Front and back covers of the original albums were included, but in most cases, other visuals were not.

For many of us our only con- nection to the destruction is seeing it through the windowas we pass by in a car going about our normal routine. We may shake our heads and mutter, oh those poor people. But sitting in that car un- affected we can never know just how poor those people are, even if they have means Those of us who have helped in the clean up or harbored friends or relatives are a little closer to the tragedy, but even then we can never imagine what the flood victims are feeling.
Lets try. Imagine coming home from work to- morrow and finding your refrigerator, stove, washer and dryer out of order and beyond repair.
Then imagine that didnt really matter because you suddenly didnt have electricity to run themanyway. Then imagine it didnt matter because you sud- denly didnt have anything to put in the refrigerator, stove, washer and dryer any- way.
Imagine you suddenly had no vehicle. Imagine wedding albums, collections, and childrens school projects washed away. Imagine having nothing but the clothes on your back. Quite literally that, as you try to imagine your house, your home, marked by a big orange X surrounded by police tape, uninhabitable, doomed to be demolished. Imagine your only livelihood is your own small business. Now imagine over- night it no longer exists. Talk to such victims and many of them will seemstoic at first.
Theyvowtheywill be back. They may even joke and laugh. But talk to them long enough and eventu- ally they breakdown. And who can blame them? Now imagine you are standing, hungry and tired, in the empty shell of what was once your home and along come some perfect strangers with food, with strong arms, with energy.
This is a scenario that has been happen- ing everyday, over and over, since the wa- ter receded three weeks ago. We cant say enough about church groups, service organizations, school clubs and sports teams, police and fire- men, street department workers, council- men, mayors and even random strangers who have made it their mission to help.
We cant imagine where the victims would be without them. Imagine it was you In June of this year, our son Eric was diagnosed with an epen- dymoma, a type of brain tumor. He underwent surgery at The Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia followed by proton radiation therapy, which recently concluded.
It has been a long and diffi- cult road, but we are lookingforwardtoa longandhealthyfuture. Our family would like to thank everyone who has kept Eric in their thoughts and prayers throughout this ordeal. Words or deeds can never express what your support and prayers have meant to our family. Special thanks to Dr. Jim Tricarico and staff for their prompt referral to the wonderful doctors and staff at The Childrens Hos- pital of Philadelphia; to the caring and compassionate doctors and staff at CHOP; Monsignor Sempa of Corpus Cristi Parish for his constant support, guidance and visits during this trying time; our familyfor their love, prayers andunendingsupport; our West Pittstonfamily, the Angelis, the Minichellos, the Melberg- ers andthe Scalzos, for beingthere withus througheverystepof this strenuous journey; Erics friends for their continuous phone calls, texts, visits andinclusionwiththeir everydaylife; all of our friends and members of our community who offered prayers, support and encouragement through this unimaginable ordeal.
We would also like to thank the West Pittston Little League Organization for holding their annual charity wiffle ball tourna- ment for Eric and our family. Thank you to all of our family and friends who worked so hard to make it a successful and fun day!
We sincerely appreciate the numerous donations, baskets and treats. Thank you to the WA Key Club members who volunteered their time. And in a time when our town was in the midst of a flooding disaster, it was truly astonishing to see our community, even people we did not know, rally around our son.
We are blessed to live in such a kind, caring and compassionate area. The ALSFfunds various researchprojects working nonstop to find a cure for childhood cancer. Also, wed like to thank all the volunteers who helped our resi- dents in their cleanup efforts, including the Wyoming Area stu- dents. Once again, this demonstrates the tight knit and caring community that we live in, with people reaching out to others at their most vulnerable time. We are proud and honored to be part of it.
The devastationthat the floodcausedtoour communitywas a humbling experience for all of us. Our hearts go out to the wonderful residents of the Wyoming Area community as you rebuild your lives, homes and businesses. Our sincerest regards and best wishes as you fight back.

Drop off or mail to Sunday Dispatch, New St. It is Columbus Day celebrated on Monday, October A holiday that does not receive the bells and whistles as other prominent American holidays but to me and many others of Italian American ancestry it is a special day.
Columbus Day became a Federal Holiday in by proclamation of the Congress and Presi- dent Franklin Delano Roosevelt as a result of the lobbying by the Knights of Columbus who chose Christopher Columbus a fitting symbol of Cathol- ic immigrants rights to citizenship. The highlight of the evening will be the pre- sentation of the Person of the Year and Lifetime Achievement Award pre- sented annually to persons for distinguished ser- vice to the Association and in various fields of en- deavor.
Paul McDonnell, victor of the Oblates of St. Joseph, Yatesville, has been selected to re- ceive the 20ll Person of the Year Award. Father McDonnell, a native of West Pittston, is the son of an Irish American father Thomas McDonnell and an Italian American mother Shirley Petrilla, will be the recipient Patricia Stella, a resident of Laflin a former school teacher, is currently the owner and operator of eleven McDonalds franchises in Northeastern Pennsylvania that employ people. Pat was 30 years of age and the youngest fran- chise owner at that time.
She is married to Joseph Stella. Butera; Sandy In- salaco; Dr. Judge Joseph Augello is chair- man. On Sunday, October 9, membership and friends will attend Mass at St. Roccos Church in Pitt- ston at a.
Following Mass the as- sembly will march to the Columbus statue to the beat of the Pacis Band to South Main Street where yearly a commemorative ceremony with the plac- ing of a wreath is held. This is a tradition that began with the Columbus League in the earlys.
Judge Augello will pre- side at the ceremony. James Deice and Herman Castellani, president, are serving as chairman and co-chairman. Reser- vations may be made by calling Louise Castellani at and Judy Deice at Leonard Cumbo, who is sorely missed and served as Treasurer of the Association and chair- man of the ad booklet since early inception, is in our thoughts and minds. Leonard was the heart who gave of his time will- ingly and lightened meetings and functions with his teasing mannerism. Rest In Peace.
Thank you, Mr. Christopher Columbus for your determination and conviction, and to our immi- grant parents who had the courage to leave their native lands.
Just this past week we encountered the seasons shift. We said goodbye to summer and hello to fall. Missing those fresh garden veg- etables? Well summer isnt the only season which provides us with fresh produce. Fall gives us nutrient-rich root vegetables like pota- toes, winter squash and sweet potatoes. Some of these veggies just take a bit longer to bake and or cook. Winter squash comes in many varieties, including butternut, acorn and spaghetti.
The dark orange and deep yellow color of winter squash indicates a vegetable packed with rich nutrients like vitamin A which is needed for vision, immune function, and skin health. Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of vitamin Aand are lowin calories. A plain baked sweet potato contains calories and has 4 grams of heart-healthy fiber.
But the vegetables nutritional value is often negated when we add lots of brown sugar, marshmallows and butter to it. Parsnips are often overlooked, but are a high energy, low-fat, nutri- ent-dense vegetable. One medium parsnip has calories with 6 grams of fiber, and like other fall vegetables provides plenty of vita- min C and potassium. Carrots are a great source of beta-carotene. Beta-carotene provides your body with vitamin A.
One cup of sliced, canned carrots has 45 calories. Turnips add a tangy flavor and a sharp bite to soups, salads and side dishes. One medium turnip has only 30 calories yet includes 25 per- cent of the daily need for vitamin C. Turnips are a fair source of potassium with nearly mg. For a nutrition boost, cook turnips with the greens. Potatoes are a naturally fat free food. One medium baked potato without sour creamand butter has about calories and provides 35 grams of carbohydrates.
Potatoes account for 25 percent of our daily need for vitamin Cwhich is important for healing wounds. They also provide mg of potassiumto aid muscle and nerve activity. Below is a recipe that uses many fall vegetables fromthe Cancer Institute for Cancer Research. Soak raisins in apple juice. Line large baking sheet with two sheets of parchment paper. In large bowl, mix vegetables, oil, syrup, cinnamon and add pepper to taste.
Spread mixture on baking pan. Bake until carrots the longest to bake are just soft then add raisins and apricots. Bake about 10 minutes longer, until carrots are soft enough for fork to prick through.

The Hitchners Bakery was al- ready 40 years old when it opened its huge, new, state-of- the-art, national-scope, com- mercial bakery on Exeter Ave- nue in West Pittston in Mike Hanley of UNC said the building will be developed into mid-income apartments for working families while preserv- ingsome of the historical aspects of the building including its name.
It will be called the Hitchner Building. In the bakerys hey-day from the s through the s the company produced, as one of the companys ads proclaimed, an ABC of cookies and crackers from Acorn Crackers and Creso Biscuits to Vanilla Cremes and Zehu Bars.
Creso Biscuits, which were named by an em- ployee who won 50 bucks, were creme soda biscuits which were dubbed The biscuit that made West Pittston famous. The bakery closed in and in the ensuing half-century the building went through a series of owners of manufacturing busi- nesses before it finally closed for good more than 20 years ago.
Abandoned, the building dete- riorated. Though structurally sound, it became an eyesore. Worse, it was a potential fire hazard as it was packed with a plastic material, in bales and rolls, used in Easter basket straw which was left by the last own- ers. In new members of the West Pittston council, Brian Thornton, Pete Musinski and Kevin Lescavage who had run on a platform that included ad- dressing the Hitchner building and Mayor Bill Goldsworthy asked borough solicitor Charles Bufalino to research the build- ing.
It took eight months of work. It took him five months torecycle 28trailer loads of the plastic materials, five truckloads of paper and card- board and dispose of 16 trailers of junk.

With these monies, the club had purchased many items for the team and the field. The board limited the boosters to only selling member- ships. The Sunday Dispatch posed the ques- tion to readers, What if parochial schools closed? At the beginning of the school year, students from the Franklin School were housed in the deteriorating Wilson Building in Pittston.
Meanwhile many parochial school students were transfer- ring to public schools in the district. School officials looked to the future and concluded that the time was right to plan for construction of new elementary buildings. With students enrolled in St. Johns; St. Marys Assumption; St. John the Baptist; St.
Marys, Avoca; Sacred Heart in Dupont and Holy Ros- ary in Duryea, plans were suggested to address the possibility of eventual turn- over of parochial students to the public school system. John S.
