Thank you very much for your work to digitise and upload Guitar News and other journals, including the PSG Bulletin. By the way, you seem to have uploaded issue 11 in place of issue 9.

    Thank you for catching this Joss! It was a copy/paste error on my part and has been fixed. Thank you also for the wonderful content on your site where I first learned of the work to digitize BMG.
