GINO VANNELLI IN THE ALBUM TOP 1000 OF ALL TIMES

RADIO STATION VERONICA IN HOLLAND, THE NETHERLANDS.
Gino Vannelli's ULTIMATE COLLECTION 3 cd box made in HollandOn number 389 of the album top 1000 of all times published in March 2012, we found GINO VANNELLI's ULTIMATE COLLECTION. This is the Dutch 3 cd box version made in Holland and released in 2003 by Universal. A beautiful musical treasure for music-lovers!

In April 2010 there was an album top 750 of all times published by Radio Veronica and this same 3 cd box ULTIMATE COLLECTION was on number 473 so this album is in upward movement to the top! The editors posted the hit-lists on the web page with information about this album.

ANOTHER BOOTLEG OF GINO VANNELLI'S MUSIC WILL BE RELEASED!

STILL HURTS TO BE IN LOVE
Today we received e-mails with questions about a new Gino Vannelli cd that will be released on 13 april 2012 with the title Still Hurts to Be in Love and they write by Gino Vannelli. Yes of course it's Gino's music but not released in this way and without Gino Vannelli's permission. So it's a BOOTLEG!!! They ask people to pre-order the cd and amazon has no tracklist so people do not know what's on this cd. Very clever! But don't let them fool you! The major big cd shops on the internet advertise with this cd in the USA but also in Europe. In Scandinavia we found a tracklist and it's exactly the same as "the best and beyond" & "Stardust In The Sand" If you want this BOOTLEG cd just order "the best or beyond or the book with cd "Stardust In The Sand. "Still Hurts To Be In Love" is exactly the same cd only with a different picture on the cd-booklet. And NO credits for Gino Vannelli!!! Those record companies do these things without permission of Gino Vannelli or without permission from His managements!

The editors often wonder how can they do this? Is this possible? Is this legal? But all this goes beyond our understanding and our brains cannot handle these matters inside the weird world of music business. You have to understand that this is our personal opinion and we write how we feel. We investigated this today and we write down the facts we found and we try to explain this matter in our own non-professional way! Simple & honest!

Anyway we thought to warn you all, this is NO new cd because Gino is working on His new cd right now while His ears and hearing system slowly heal... He looks very forward to jump on stage again in June 2012. Concert news will follow in the near future! Looking forward to a musical June 2012 with GINO VANNELLI who is anxious to sing but a little scared too. This bad ear accident had a great big ugly impact on Gino. But His dedication to His music is so intense and deep that He fights back to jump the stage again and sing His songs with this unique voice...

Gino Vannelli: The Man and His Music!!! Search for "the best and beyond" or Stardust In The Sand" NOT for Still Hurts to Be In love...

2009 the best and beyond by GINO VANNELLI Stardust in the Sand written by GINO VANNELLI Gino Vannelli Still Hurts To Be In Love BOOTLEG
Gino Vannelli cd's right and wrong

BAD NEWS FOR THE EDITORS OF THE GINO VANNELLI GUESTBOOK!

TRIPOD CANCELS HTML GEAR AND THAT'S THE GINO VANNELLI GUESTBOOK AT 1 APRIL 2012 AND THAT'S NO JOKE!
The editors received the following e-mail dated 9 February 2012 from Tripod with the subject: Announcement: HTML Gear is closing!

Dear gino_vannelli,
Please be advised that HTML Gear will be retiring on April 1, 2012. As of that date, all HTML Gear modules will cease functioning and you will no longer be able to log into htmlgear.com to make changes or updates. To avoid a poor experience for your site visitors, please remove all HTML Gear modules from your pages before April 1, 2012. We're retiring HTML Gear to encourage a more enhanced, integrated website building experience. We recommend using the Zeeblio website builder on Tripod, which can you learn more about here. Thank you very much for using HTML Gear, and we look forward to hearing your thoughts about Zeeblio. Sincerely, Chris Cummings, Director of Product Management

The disappointment is very big inside the editors team because we made 85 web pages inside OUR Gino Vannelli guestbook with big pleasure and fun we made these 85 pages with many pictures and Tripod suddenly tells us that they are going to delete it all??? We are in panic and we are going to make the 85 web pages inside our Tripod filemanager if that is possible. We try it and see what happens... So from 1 April 2012 people cannot sign in anymore and write a message but we will try to keep the old 85 pages for sure!!! That Tripod bullshit is so annoying and why do people want to change all the time and the changes are not allways better. Let us be old-fashioned and enjoy the old school guestbook.... We have to find a new guestbook or something where people from the whole world can sign-in and write something, people need to write about their emotions and especially GINO VANNELLI emotions! We also want to save everything for the music history and certainly the GINO VANNELLI music history!

Every word, picture, line, story, review, interview, video-clips and whatever about GINO VANNELLI needs to be saved, HE is such a genius in the world of music and HE deserves to be noticed in the next 25 centuries and more.....

If you want you can still write in the old guestbook up to 14 February 2012 after this date we start archiving because we save it all and we save it in our Gino Vannelli filemanager and we will create 85 web pages for all the guestbook pages. This will take some time ha! We go back to early 1999! and archive it all!

Gino Vannelli Guestbook Here start the old 85 pages when we archived them.

Here is a second new guestbook and you can write a reply to a message or post a whole new message, no problem, whatever you want and we can see how this new system works.

WE ALL HAVE TO GET GINO VANNELLI'S NAME ON THE INTERNET AND EVEN DEEPER, GINO VANNELLI'S NAME HAS TO POP-UP EVERYWHERE ALSO IN THE NEXT 1000 YEARS ORSO....



Thursday 12 January 2012:
THE MEDIA FROM THE NETHERLANDS OVERFLOWS US WITH ARTICLES ABOUT GINO VANNELLI'S CANCELLED CONCERTS WITH THE JAZZ ORCHESTRA OF THE CONCERTGEBOUW.

FROM VOICE PROBLEMS TO ALL KIND OF DISEASES AND OTHER NONSENSE....
One look at the official GINO VANNELLI web site ginov.com or this GINO VANNELLI fan site http://www.ginovannelli.info and everybody knows what really happened with Gino, we even tried to translate the official statement into Dutch but people and journalists are so lazy and do not want to check something they just write something down because they do not care! This is the editor's own personal opinion!

Gino's inner-ears problems will heal but it takes time and the flying is impossible and forbidden because deafness looks around the corner and a musician with deafness is almost unthinkable!

Here is the official statement again:

Gino Vannelli news, please pay attention! Took this official statement from the official Gino Vannelli web site on 9 January 2012 and translated it to the Dutch language:
English/Engels: In regards to the upcoming Dutch and Scandinavian concerts
Posted on January 8, 2012 by ginov.com

Dear Dutch and Scandinavian fans,
Gino will have to postpone his concerts with the Concertgebouw Jazz Orchestra, and the new Danish trio this January. A few weeks ago Gino had a stage accident that did serious harm to his ears. A crew member unwittingly unplugged a mic cable while Gino was testing his in-ear monitors. The blast was so loud that Gino lost his hearing for a moment. It returned after a few seconds. Gino went ahead and performed but in a few days the damage to his ears manifested. Not fun.

Gino has seen a slew of doctors. Thankfully there is no permanent damage; but in flying, doctors say, Gino risks further harm to his ears. It’s a risk not worth taking, especially with a ten-hour flight from Portland, Oregon to Amsterdam. Gino sends all, his deepest apologies–he was hoping he would heal in time. At present, Gino is on a strict diet and a regimen of herbs and vitamins. Doctors have grounded Gino for the next 60 days. Management and all involved are in the process of rescheduling the dates. We are aiming for late April, early May. All the January dates have been postponed. As soon as we have any updates we’ll let you know.
Love to all from Gino.

Nederlands/Dutch: Met betrekking tot de aankomende Nederlandse en Scandinavische concerten
Gepost op 8 Januari 2012 op de officiele ginov.com website

Beste Nederlandse en Scandinavische fans,
Gino moet zijn concerten met het Jazz Orkest van het Concertgebouw en met zijn nieuwe trio uit Denemarken uitstellen. Een paar weken geleden had Gino een ongeluk op het podium wat serieuze schade aan zijn gehoor toebracht. Een lid van de Gino Vannelli crew trok onbewust een kabel uit de microfoon terwijl Gino zijn binnen-monitor oortjes aan het testen was. De knal was so hard dat Gino zijn gehoor verloor voor een paar minuten, het kwam wel weer terug na een klein poosje en Gino ging gewoon door en trad op. Maar na een paar dagen manifesteerde de schade aan zijn oor zich. Niet zo leuk.

Gino heeft een keur aan dokters bezocht en gelukkig is er geen blijvende schade aan zijn gehoor. Maar vliegen is uit den boze want vliegen zal wel meer schade toebrengen aan zijn gehoor. En als Gino toch gaat vliegen dan neemt hij een heel groot risiko om nog meer schade te veroorzaken aan zijn gehoor. En dat is het allemaal niet waard, zeker om dat het meer dan 10 uur vliegen is van Portland, Oregon naar Amsterdam. Gino stuurt zijn wel gemeende verontschuldigingen aan iedereen want hij hoopte optijd genezen te zijn. Op dit moment heeft Gino strenge dieten en moet gedisciplineerde hoeveelheden kruiden en vitaminen innemen zodat het geneest op een natuurlijke wijze. Dokters hebben Gino bevolen om op de grond te blijven zeker voor de volgende 60 dagen. De managers en iedereen die erbij betrokken is proberen om de concerten later in het jaar te herschikken en nieuwe data te boeken. Ons doel is eind April of begin Mei 2012. Dus alle Januari en Februari 2012 data zijn uitgesteld. Zodra we alle nieuwe data weten dan laten we het U allemaal weten. Liefs aan iedereen van Gino. -Gmusic-

THE VERY FIRST PICTURE FROM THE GINO VANNELLI CRUISE...

SATERDAY AFTER MIDNIGHT A SURPRISE COMES INTO THE EDITOR'S E-MAILBOX.....
Gino Vannelli rescues Mary Lou With this picture we celebrate Mary Lou's 50th GINO VANNELLI concert, a very special concert on a cruise ship and by the picture we can see that Mary Lou was the volunteer on stage to read a story from Gino's STARDUST IN THE SAND...

Mary Lou's reaction: " First show on the Cruise and my 50th Concert. On stage with Gino and I almost slipped off the chair.
Gino to the rescue...

GINO VANNELLI'S CD "NORTH SEA JAZZ 2002" WITH THE METROPOLE ORCHESTRA IS ALSO RELEASED IN THE USA WITH THE TITLE A NIGHT TO REMEMBER WITHOUT GINO VANNELLI'S APPROVAL!!! BEWARE OF THIS CD...

ANOTHER WORST NIGHTMARE FOR AN ARTIST IS THAT HIS MUSIC IS RELEASED WITHOUT HIS PERMISSION!!!
BEWARE!!! of the cd a night to remember, the purple one, it's not official released by Gino Vannelli. The official one is GINO VANNELLI & the Metropole Orchestra, the North Sea Jazz Festival 2002.

The only GINO VANNELLI and the Metropole Orchestra North Sea Jazz Festival 2002 Be careful with the one you buy because we guess you want to support Gino Vannelli's work and not somebody who did nothing for this cd and only sells it for the money and only wants to make profit while Gino did all the hard work. SO UNFAIR!!! GINO VANNELLI deserves the credits and not some sneaky/creepy producer with the morals of a flea! That's our (B&T) personal humble opinion. The music is the same on both cd's but Gino Vannelli's original is so much better and the quality is so much more gratifying.

We ask Gino Vannelli fans and music-lovers not to buy this -a night to remember- CD not on eBay or at other auction sites, amazon USA is already deleting the cd and more will follow after the legal operations and investigations. The only things which helps in these matter is that people do NOT buy these kind of cd's it's all about money and not about dedication and devotion to music, GINO VANNELLI's music!!!

Here you can go to the 2002 North Sea Jazz web page...

GINO VANNELLI'S VIDEO-CLIP "WILDERNESS ROAD" WAS AN INCOMPLETE VERSION THAT ACCIDENTALLY GOT OUT AND ENDED UP ON YOUTUBE!!!

THE WORST NIGHTMARE OF AN ARTIST AND THIS HAPPENED LAST WEEK IN GINO VANNELLI'S VERY BUSY AND STRESSFUL LIFE!!!
Everybody who loves Gino Vannelli's voice and music lived a few days in this great flow of a new superb Gino Vannelli song.... Somebody found it on YouTube and spread it by e-mails not knowing that he or she could hurt the feelings of an true artist who is so dedicated to His music and such a perfectionist that He cannot handle this unedited version on the internet. Also we the editors received this e-mail and thought it had to do with publicity to get us ready for this new Gino Vannelli song... The only thing we hear is a superb new GINO VANNELLI song and we go wild....................... With "we" we mean us the editors!

Nobody warned us and we do not have a facebook account, we only received positive and enthusiastic
e-mails with nice, very nice comments.

So if you have this very wrong version of Wilderness road please remove it and make Gino happy again so He can work on this perfect version this week without stress and in a healthy way. GINO VANNELLI fans know how to wait patiently because we know the results will be amazing and great! Greatness in Music and voice of which we all already had a little "inside view", in this very unfinished version of Wilderness Road.

It's the crazy life on the world wide web.
Like a WILDERNESS ROAD by GINO VANNELLI.....



Friday 14 October 2011:

NOBODY KNOWS ABOUT THIS NEW GINO VANNELLI CD!!!???

A BIG MYSTERY ABOUT A NEW GINO VANNELLI CD...

The editors e-mailbox is full with tons of questions in e-mails from all kind of countries because amazon dot com shows a new GINO VANNELLI cd which will be released on 18 October 2011... The editors know NOTHING about this so-called new GINO VANNELLI cd so we asked the managements and they started an investigation last week but till today NO clue at all... And it's a weird advertisement at amazon dot com because there is no tracklist and no nothing of information... The mystery goes on and on... We will write more when we hear more...

Even GINO VANNELLI Himself has NO CLUE and says: "Hell if I know!! Gotta be some mistake or miscommunication...or Napster bandit in the neighborhood."

This line says it all or this line means a lot but that's the editor's personal humble opinion!

The editors hope we could answer your e-mails in this way to post this message in our GINO VANNELLI newspaper. THANKS for your never ending support!

DO YOU KNOW - DID YOU KNOW???

MORE GINO VANNELLI CHIT CHAT & SMALL-TALK...
- DO YOU KNOW - DID YOU KNOW that a Japanese person wrote in our guestbook after Gino Vannelli's concerts in Tokyo, Japan??? Read it because it's a fantastic message!

- DO YOU KNOW - DID YOU KNOW that Gino Vannelli will tour in January 2012 in Denmark during the winter Jazz Fest and with Danish Musicians??? A new kind of concert???
Very interesting!

- DO YOU KNOW - DID YOU KNOW that people from all over the world ask us the most weirdest questions??? "Is Gino expensive...? Let me know..."

- DO YOU KNOW - DID YOU KNOW that two GINO VANNELLI fans from the United States had just started dating when he took her to see Gino Vannelli at the Masonic Temple in Detroit 35 years ago on September 19, 1976. They are still married and big, very big Gino Vannelli Fans since that night in 1976!!! Their ticket is posted in our concerts-list of the 70's! They saw Gino Vannelli last 3 September 2011 in Winsor, ON, Canada...
Life can be so beautiful! If you do what you love to do...

- DO YOU KNOW - DID YOU KNOW that Gino Vannelli will give 4 in stead of 3 concerts in the cruise week??? That's what He says in an interview! 3 is good very good but 4 concerts in a week is super good!
The editors do not know this for sure so do not kill us when there are only (!) 3 concerts, 3 GINO VANNELLI concerts on a cruise ship is already a dream vacation so enjoy the pre-fun for the fullest!

GINO VANNELLI MINI LP'S RELEASED IN JAPAN.

A LETTER FROM A FRENCH GINO VANNELLI FAN:
The editors received this e-mail:

Hello les amis, Found on the cdjapan webstore : overhere...

3 classics albums of our favorite artist ready to be Relaunched again at the expensive price of 32.52 Us $ each cd.

  • The Gist Of Gemini [SHM-CD] [Limited Release]
  • A Pauper In Paradise [SHM-CD] [Limited Release]
  • Brother To Brother [SHM-CD] [Limited Release]
By the way an explication of this japanese medium :
The high quality SHM-CD (Super High Material CD) format features enhanced audio quality through the use of a special polycarbonate plastic. Using a process developed by JVC and Universal Music Japan discovered through the joint companies' research into LCD display manufacturing, SHM-CDs feature improved transparency on the data side of the disc, allowing for more accurate reading of CD data by the CD player laser head. SHM-CD format CDs are fully compatible with standard CD players.

Probably the first part of a reissue of all the AM albums, i would be very happy if a future reissue of "Yonder tree" and "Slow Love" would be planned by our japanese friends.
Have a nice day
Jacques

GINO VANNELLI IN ATLANTIC CITY, USA.

THE SHOW WAS SHORT BUT SWEET!
A few short reactions from the audience:

(1): Barend & Trees,Gino Vannelli 30 July 2011 in Atlantic City, USA Atlantic City was short but sweet. Here is a picture for you to post. I will send more soon.
---

(2): The show was short because John Secada stayed on stage longer than he should have and Gino was waiting backstage. When you perform at a Casino you have a contract with a time allowance and John Secada took away some of Gino's time on stage by performing longer than he was suppose too. Gino being the true professional that he is came on stage and sang as many songs as the time allowed which was 9 songs. Gino was great but the audience wanted more and he was not able to be on stage and sing any more songs because of his contract. During the show he did not tell any of his funny stories and we missed that part of Gino. Gino did the best he could under the circumstances and it was an enjoyable evening.
---

(3): Hi Folks, Just thought I'd write and tell you about the Atlantic City Concert. Jon Secada opened for Gino. He was very good. Unfortunately though that meant Gino only did one hour and as we all know that is never enough of Gino! Learned another fact I did not know that Brother to Brother was to be called Appaloosa. Gino was in good voice, not very talkative. Sounded great. Did a Good Thing and it was wonderful. I am going to Canada to see him over Labor Day weekend so I hope the set is longer! Wish I could go on the cruise but since I would be a single, the price just isn't in my budget this year. Maybe some other day... Hope you are both well. Wish I could see him in Holland . Summer is going too fast! Thanks for all you do!
---

(4): Weren't so lucky this time! We need a follow-up to that GINO VANNELLI adventure, let's go to Canada in September! Crying now! This show was the ultimate fan challenge, way too short! The Man and His music were amazing though!
---

The end of the reactions about the GINO VANNELLI concert in Atlantic city, USA on Saterday 30 July 2011.

MISCELLANEOUS GINO VANNELLI STUFF!!!

FROM BRAMPTON TO THE CARIBBEAN...
You can book your dreamtrip now: A cruise with Gino Vannelli from Florida, USA to the Eastern Caribbean with 3 Gino Vannelli concerts including the Portland Band. It is really possible to book now through the internet!

Follow the tour in Holland, the Netherlands too because the surest things can change! Surf all the web pages you can and also our Gino Vannelli tour data and information page!

The editors found a few lines, sentences, one-liners & short-liners in the archives from e-mails we could not post because people do not want us to post their e-mails, it's a pity but we respect their wishes. But we feel we can use and post a few words without names... It's about the Gino Vannelli Brampton concert last March the 11th in Canada:

Yes! I have my ticket to see Gino! I can't wait! Wish I could figure out a way to sneak into the sound check (but I would not want to make anybody angry). I guess you can see, by my worrying, that I am pretty excited!

Yes - I met BOTH Gino and Ross after the show. I was surprised, however, when I met him. He looked very different than he did in Portland. Very handsome, of course, but physically smaller. His body proportions were different, too, and there was not a single trace of grey in his hair. Ross also looked much younger than in some of the photos taken of him. If I can think of any other details about the show, I will pass them on to you!

GINO, I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR YOU AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What a pleasure in life it is to be able to attend another wonderful show from Gino and his new band. It is the best therapy money can buy. The show was excellent and the acoustics in the theatre were very good. Perfect size theatre for Gino. Incredible sound.

Brampton (Toronto) was an incredible night. The band was like a hot rod. Gino was smiling.

Thanks again for posting this I know you guys do your best and it is appreciated by all fans. Regards.




Monday 7 March 2011:
RECEIVED TWO AMERICAN REACTIONS FROM WESTERN CANADA

GINO VANNELLI CONCERTS IN WESTERN CANADA BUT E-MAILS FROM USA FANS WHO TRAVELLED MANY MILES TO SEE GINO...
(1): An e-mail from Anne who travelled from Seattle in the USA to Vancouver in British Columbia in Canada. Date of her e-mail Sunday 6 March 2011. Subject: Gino's concert in Vancouver tonight.

Dear Barend and Trees, I just got back from Gino's concert in Vancouver (March 5, 2011). From the very first chord to the final encore, the show was perfection! You published my short story, when I got to see Gino in Portland in October, doing the same concert, and let me tell you, what a difference a few months can make! October's performance was amazing but tonight's show was unreal. Gino's voice soared above the rafters with an ethereal quality that only a true master can achieve. The musicians were playing off of each other with skill and humor, and at one point, a duet between the new guitar player and bass player was so tight, it shimmered. Real ear candy. I loved all of the stories Gino told. He mentioned when he played in a nightclub in Montreal that it was grueling work - playing 5 sets of music a night 6 nights a week. I did not know he ever performed in that kind of band. Learn something new about Gino all the time!

You know, this past week has been very difficult for me, for personal reasons. However, after this show, my heart feels so much lighter and filled with joy. My troubles seem much smaller now. Gino's gift of music did this for me. Thank you, Gino!
Best wishes from Vancouver, B.C. Anne


(2): An e-mail from Joanne who travelled from Arizona in the USA to Vancouver in British Columbia in Canada. Date of her e-mail Monday 7 March 2011. Subject: Homepage 1 GINO VANNELLI

Dear B&T, I'm on my way home from Vancouver after seeing Gino on Saturday. Gino was of course fabulous. The theater was great. However, I'm not impressed with the new West Coast Band. The new guitar player doesn't hold a lick to Alan Hinds. There was no chemistry between Gino & the bass player as there had been. The horn section was tight and the best I've heard them. Hopefully Gino will be back in Vegas soon. Regards, Joanne from AZ in the USA Sent from my iPod

Hello my friends, What i m reading you are thinking in stopping your Non-official Gino's web-site??? I don t want to ask you or to blame you about the reasons you want to stop but let me tell you a big thank you for all the great job you did day after day since the last 12 years (if i m not wrong). Regularly when i ve 5 minutes or more i read every day if something new is updated about our favorite artist and let me tell you thank you for all those wonderful pictures and report you put and translate for the greatest pleasure of all the fans.

Just let me tell you a big thank you and i hope that we will continue emailing us and speaking of our favorite artist even if you are no longer visible on the net.
A big hug les amis

(7): Subject: Hello Friends

Hello Friends, just read the latest news on Gino. You guys do such terrific work. Wish I could see him in person. His shows are never close to my area. Ahhh, but someday..... He's still just a fresh as back in the 70's. His talent is unreal. God Bless, HAPPY NEW YEAR to Gino Vannelli and all my Friends.
Patsea

(8): Nederlands/Dutch: Onderwerp: Groeten van een Gino fan

Beste Barend & Trees, Even misschien niets meer van mij gehoord of gezien, maar uit het oog betekent zeker niet uit het hart. Nog steeds "volg" ik Gino via zijn officiële website maar zeker ook via jullie website. Jullie website biedt nl zoveel meer achtergrond- en detailinformatie die de informatie meer een ziel geeft. Vandaar dat ook zoveel mensen reageren op jullie voornemen om te gaan stoppen. Dit zou ik ook erg jammer vinden maar jullie zullen daar goede redenen voor hebben. Gino met de verhalen via jullie site betekenden en betekenen nog steeds veel voor me. Ik ben tenslotte via jullie site jaren geleden met jullie en Gino in aanraking gekomen en heeft mijn muzikale leven verrijkt !! Veel groeten van Gino fan,
Erwin Happel

English/Engels: Subject: Greetings from a Gino fan

Dear Barend & Trees, You did not see or hear from me for a while, but one thing is for sure it does not mean: "Out of sight out of mind." I still follow Gino's official web site but also certainly your web site. Because your web site has more depth and much more information and details and it gives everything more SOUL and that's why so many people react strongly on your thoughts about stopping with your web site. Your intention to maybe stop is a big pity but I 'm sure you have your good reasons. Gino together with your stories and details on your site mean a lot to me and they still do. After all I discovered Gino through your site and Gino's music made my life so much more richly !! Many greetings from a Gino Fan,
Erwin Happel

(9): Subject: Buon Natale

Solong GINO VANNELLI... Dear B & T, a special wish of Happy Holidays. I wish you a Merry Christmas and that 2011 brings you many beautiful things. Thank you for everything you have done (and continue to do) for us big fans of Gino, a big hug from Italy, Luisa Topan, a BIG GINO VANNELLI Fan in Italy!



Friday 24 December 2010:
MORE LETTERS TO THE EDITORS OF THE GINO VANNELLI NEWSPAPER

AS PROMISED MORE STATEMENTS, MORE QUESTIONS, MORE OPINIONS AND
DO YOU KNOW, DID YOU KNOW'S...

Gino Vannelli newspaper page 9 (1): Subject: (Gino Vannelli) Niagara Falls 9 October 2010

DO YOU KNOW??? DID YOU KNOW??? That the editors have lost and found e-mail letters and this is one of them we found again very unexpected??? A letter which deserves to be posted:

I flew from Sydney Australia to see one of my all time favorite artists, and I was blown away!
Just one note, regarding the live sound. I am a journalist and specialist writer on professional audio, as well as a long term live audio engineer.
The mix was great, however too loud from get-go. This left the mix with nowhere to go. I wonder if anyone else thought this?

Otherwise a sensational concert, and I can only dream of Gino performing in Australia!

Regards,
Julius Grafton in Australia!

(2): Subject: An email from my professor...

DO YOU KNOW??? DID YOU KNOW??? That my professor knows Gino Vannelli's CANTO???
Ester

(3): Subject: A WHO IS WHO???

Hello! trees&barend, ohhhh nooo Canto is not for sale no more, I tried everywhere. I need a new fresh one because I played it so many times that the hole in the middle gets bigger and bigger and the destruction process began! Love and a fat thick kiss from Wilma.

Gino the maestro!!! DEAR GINO, KEEP OP THE GOOD WORK, LOVE YOU AND ALL YOURE FAM. WILMA

(4): Subject: Are you kidding me?????

Please say it isn't so -not updating the Barend and Trees's "SHAMELESS DEVOTION to GINO VANNELLI: The Master of MUSIC!!!" I don't know about the other fans but I for one do not get my news from the "official" website. And by news, I mean tour info. If I want to really know what is happening I will jump on your site ten times a day... Absolutely nowhere can a true Gino Fan or a fan of anyone that I know of, gorge themselves for hours on such a complete and eclectic collection of memorabilia. Of course after eleven years of endless hours and expense, you are more than justified to to retire from your "hobby" and spend your leisure time ...... I for one wish you the best of happiness!
Love you both, Terry

p.s. pleeeeasssse don't do it

(5): Subject: : From the updates web page...

Greetings, Barend & Trees, I really am hoping that you two do decide to keep up the site, it is invaluable to us fans. It is always so nice to look forward to seeing the pictures and reviews after the shows which unfortunately all of us “hooked” fans cannot attend. Please, please, please keep up the good work….we NEED you!!!
Many thanks…Don & Jane

(6): Nederlands/Dutch: Onderwerp: Vraag... Gino / People gotta move...

Hi Barend, Ik ben al een tijdje op zoek naar de bladmuziek van People gotta move. Tot zover nergens te vinden (op internet). In welk boek is dat uitgebracht? Of kun je wellicht een kopietje met me delen? Met vriendelijke groet, Nathan P.

Engels/English: Subject: : Question... Gino / People gotta move...

Hi Barend, I'm searching for sheetmusic of People Gotta Move for a long, long time. Till today I could not find nothing (on the internet). Do you know the book in which it's published? Or do you want to share a copy with me? Kind regards, Nathan P.

The editors: Copy??? The editors get cranky when we read the word copy, illegal, not illegal??? What to do??? We know it's not for sale in the "normal" music business but to give away copies is still illegal and most of the time people who ask us these copies are musicians themselves and they should know better! Or not??? All cliché's and dilemma's but still a problem in our minds. We gave GINO VANNELLI things away in trust and still everything we gave away in trust ended up one day for sale on the auction web sites. So what to do??? We love to share but people make it unpossible to share. People just ask out of the blue, we do not know them and they never ever supported our GINO VANNELLI fan site and some of them still demand our copies!!!???
Feel the need to say something to the Editors? Go ahead and e-mail us...

LETTERS TO THE EDITORS OF THE GINO VANNELLI NEWSPAPER

ALL LETTERS HAVE THE NAME OF GINO VANNELLI MENTIONED, POSTED, PRINTED, LISTED OR WRITTEN AND KEPT WITHIN THE BOUNDS OF GOOD TASTE.
Read the latest letters from our readers, who cares what the news is about. Especioally GINO VANNELLI news! Focus and read! Here we go:

(1): Subject: (Gino Vannelli) Vann-Elli Gina Bold 45 For Sale/MINT Condition

Hi: I've just discovered a perfect MINT copy of Gina Bold by Vann-elli. B-side is Never Cry Again. This is the one where it says (Enregistre au Canada) under the artist's name. If you know anyone who would be interested in the single, or if you yourself are interested, I'm currently open to big offers. Hope to hear from you...
Roberta, Finyl Vinyl Records, Canada.

(2): Subject: Homepage 1 GINO VANNELLI

Dear Both
I am in UK and because I am such a Gino adorer, I keep coming across your site. It is SO difficult to accept that he never comes to the UK and all his work and concerts seem to be everywhere but here!

I will just say to you now that I cannot find any other singer, composer, performer, musician, poet and musical wizard that even comes close. I first heard him in 1978 when a dear Dutch friend of mine, sadly no longer with us, gave me a tape of Powerful People. A great part of my life was then spent without his music because my tape was played so much it broke. I am now 51 years old and have rediscovered Gino because of digital files etc. Oh my, what I have been missing! It doesn't matter what I hear of his, it has that unique, haunting, happy, vigourous, energetic, emotional, heartfelt, sensual, musical, poetic..........oh I could go on and on.........sound and atmosphere. I just can't leave it alone. I am very musical myself, with certain musical training and appreciation and I just LOVE THIS MAN.

I know Holland is one of his special places (you lucky things) and I have family there. Do you always keep his visits/appearances posted on your site? I will keep my eyes open. I'm so sad I have just missed him in June. Are his concerts always sold out......would I ever stand a chance of seeing/hearing him I wonder? Keep up the good work. I suspect you feel just like I do and that's comforting! Helen W. in the U.K.

(3): Subject: Gino Vannelli in Montecarlo

Hi there!!!!!!!!! Yes we were in Montecarlo. The concert was just great as usual! Of course i know Gino woudnt like this videoclip of mine..............send it to you just for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!! so sorry it was just a few secs...........cant wait for the next concert......even if Beppe said in Montecarlo.............after this one (such a good concert) no more ahahah it was a lie!!!!!

Ciao tot ziens Francesca & Beppe in Italy.
enjoy it

(4): Subject: A gino vannelli's technicle article

Hello les amis, How are you ? I ve found on the internet an article about the Gino and Ross studio's. In my opinion it s a very interesting testimony about the material and audio precision of Gino when he run a new recording project. Always seeking for a new material able to improve his recording for the greatest joy of his fans. Gino is always at the top of the recording process.

Article Auralex
Have a nice day
Jacques in Paris France.

A reply:from the editors B&T: Thanks for all your letters From France and Italy and Canada and The United Kingdom. Great to see letters from all that different countries on this planet. We have more letters to publish, be patient please.

A reply to Roberta in Canada: We have that Gino Vannelli single already in our Gino Vannelli collection and we believe there are not many real Gino Vannelli collectors who will pay a lot of money for that item so do not expect big offers or maybe you already received a big high offer, if so please let us know.

A Reply to Helen in the U.K.: If you really deeply want to go to a GINO VANNELLI concert there is always a way. By the way Gino performed a few times in London.

A Reply to Francesca & Beppe in Italy: Thanks for your enthusiasm and your support to us and more important to Gino Vannelli's work!

A reply to Jacques in France: Thanks Jacques, merci beaucoup! Thanks for your never ending search for Gino things and links and always sharing with us. Did you read the last sentence on that Auralex article??? Wow what a honour for us!!!

MORE REVIEWS, WORDS, COMMENTS, PICTURES AND NASTY LINES FROM THE AUDIENCES OF GINO VANNELLI IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND CANADA, REAL NORTH AMERICAN STUFF!

IN GENERAL THE CONCERTS WERE A BIG HIT AGAIN, THAT'S FOR SURE!
A few reactions from Montréal, Québec, Canada:

*** Yes we were in Montréal of course and we found out on Friday that Uncle Vic was there with more Family! The concert was just great as usual, he started and ended so great! Our friend the manager of the best hotel there enjoyed the concert very much. He had a great time with Gino Vannelli experience. Thank you to Mr. Gino vannelli.
Thx so much to you for the great job you're doing with Gino's site... FI


*** A bit of madness in Canada, GINO VANNELLI madness! The two concerts, especially Montreal, were quite special. The new band was killing. Not one mistake, but more importantly, a great groove and vibe on stage. Gino had so many autographs to sign, and demanding fans all over the place. But Gino's smile was untouchable and impressive! GREAT CONCERT! GREAT VOICE! GREAT BAND! We want more... We want more... thanks, merci beaucoup, VG


2010 GINO VANNELLI and Susan from Montréal *** Wow, wow and wow.
What a night...Gino's was in very good shape and the new band was fantastic.
A standing ovation at the end ...for sure !!
susan from Montreal


*** Greetings, Barend & Trees,
I had to write to you and let you know what an amazing show Don & I saw in Montreal last weekend.
It’s surprising how different each show can be due to the crowd or location. This show seemed to have more genuine fans (probably friends and family, too!) than in the casino locations where there may be more people just going for pure entertainment. As you may recall, I am a newer fan so I can’t compare the performances from years past. We had seen him for the first time in this same theater during the 2008 Montreal Jazz Festival which was not a sell out like this show was (don’t know why).

Jane & Don's GINO VANNELLI poster from Montréal October 2010. The audience last Friday seemed to made up of all true fans of his and there was not an empty seat in the house! (I checked on the theater and it seats just under 3,000.) We were lucky to get seats in the third row and had a wonderful view, the show was fantastic. He did the same songs as at the Niagara Bears Club show but included Black Cars this time. He also showed slides from his book and played a song with these recorded by his father as he did in Niagara, beautiful! He also had a few funny stories, one in French which we could understand quite well by way of his “acting”. What a wonderful experience it was to see this show, he was so appreciated by the crowd and they showed it profusely in their reaction.

We found out before the show here was an autograph session afterward, so after the show we swam quickly against the huge sea of people to get in line. We were so pleased to be able to meet him again, get his autograph and take pictures. (We could not take pictures inside the auditorium, so we didn’t.) He is such a genuinely kind person, we were elated to be in his presence! I wonder if he understands how he lifts so many people’s spirits. We were lucky to meet Ross again who was there at the autograph session, what a wonderful, proud family! We will never forget this weekend of bliss, but also feel the greed of wanting more of these to come! I am sending you a picture of the poster advertising the show which was in the lobby for you to post on your site. Best wishes from Jane & Don in Connecticut.

Gino Vannelli en toute intimité
Pierre O. Nadeau - 28/10/2010 21h56 le Journal de Québec.

Longtemps attendu depuis sa dernière prestation dans l’intimité du Théâtre Petit Champlain, Gino Vannelli était de passage, hier, au Théâtre Capitole avec ses musiciens de Portland pour faire revivre ses succès à la manière de sa compilation The Best & Beyond, qui aligne ses incontournables tels que Wild Horses, I Just Wanna Stop, Wheels of Life et, bien sûr, Black Cars, un classique qui date déjà de 25 ans.

Quelle belle soirée en sa compagnie hier soir au Capitole. La salle était vivante et le spectacle digne du Grand chanteur. Encore, j'en aurait pris encore. Il a eu la gentillesse de se prêter au jeu des photos et signatures après le spectacle. Il est le roi de la musique.
Merci M. Vannelli - vous êtes génial !

A few words from the editors:

And the next day the editors already received a translation to the English language from a very loyal Dutch GINO VANNELLI fan who wants to stay anonymous and the editors thank this kind, very kind GINO VANNELLI fan! Here we go:

Gino Vannelli most intimate
Pierre O. Nadeau - 28/10/2010 21h56 Québec newspaper.

2010 GINO VANNELLI in Montréal Long awaited since his last performance in the intimacy of the petit Champlain theatre, Gino Vannelli passed by yesterday at the Capitole theatre together with his Portland musicians to revive his successes by way of his compilation The Best & Beyond, which lines up his unavoidable songs like Wild horses, I just Wanna, Stop, Wheels of Life and, of course, Black cars, a classic already 25 years old.

1 Comment Valerie:

October the 29 th, 9h16. What a beautiful evening in his company yesterday at the Capitole. The hall was lively and the show worthy of the great singer. (This next sentence is beyond me but it might be something like I would like to have more. Help needed here!) He was so kind to lent himself for the game of pictures and signatures after the show. He is the king of music.
Thank you M. Vannelli – you are a genius !

A DIFFERENT REACTION FROM PORTLAND, OREGON, USA

A GINO VANNELLI FAN WHO TRAVELLED FROM SOUTH CALIFORNIA TO NORTH OREGON...
A letter to the editors:

Barend & Trees;
This was my 7th Gino Vannelli show. Each & everyone were great. This show started a little rough as the audio mix on the first 2 songs was HORRIBLE. We could not hear Gino's voice at all. I am still not sure what the 2nd song was. I am pretty sure it was "Stay With Me". It got better but was never perfect. Gino had the concert video taped so we maybe able to see it in our homes someday. He had told me he was going to tape it when we spoke earlier. I gave him my business card since I am a editor. I would love to edit the concert for him.

At the meet & greet after the show, I handed a copy of "Stardust In The Sand" to him to autograph. He looked up and addressed me by name, once again a thrill. By the way, the booth with the CD's, T-shirts, and books was manned by his son, Anton.

A WONDERFUL REACTION ABOUT THE GINO VANNELLI PORTLAND CONCERT 2010...

20 OCTOBER 2010... A DAY TO REMEMBER FOR THIS GINO VANNELLI FAN...
Dear Barend and Trees,
I just had to write today to tell you about the amazing show Gino and the Portland Band played last night in Portland, OR.

First of all, it was in a teeny tiny theater, with only 300 seats and - believe it or not - at least 20 seats were completely empty! I could not imagine how his show would not sell out! I feel so lucky to have seen him in such an intimate setting. Surprisingly, I did not see Ross behind the sound board, though. I did not see Gino's brother anywhere (although I was looking).

I was beside myself with excitement and had so much funt! I wished I could have stood and danced the whole night but I was in the 2nd row and nobody else was dancing and I did not want to block the view of other people. So, I simply never sat still in my seat and danced sitting down. (and looked like a crazy person, but I did NOT care!)

Gino's voice was amazing. His sound can reach through my heart and bring it alive like nobody else. And the band! Oh my! I have never, ever, in all of my days of being a singer and a music fan, heard such a tight and together band. They were the best rehearsed group and most talented musicians I have ever seen! And we all know that Gino Vannelli's music is not the usual "3 chords and a cloud of dust" rock and roll! It takes skill to play his songs well!

I also got a chance to meet Gino and have my photo taken with him after the performance - don't have the picture yet. I am sure I said something nonsensical and foolish (but I did ask him when we might expect some sheet music of his songs, and he said that he is working on it). Such a lovely man.

Finally, I was able to obtain an official set list of the tunes he and the band played. Thought you would like to share it with the fans:
Oh - he started the show singing just the first line or two of Powerful People and then went into:

Gino Vannelli and Anne in Portland, Oregon, USA. 1. Crazy Life
2. Stay With Me (A BIG surprise for me - I LOVE this song!)
3. Summers of My Life
4. Wild Horses
5. Living Inside Myself
6. Black Cars
7. Hurts to be in Love
8. A Good Thing
9. Canto
10. Appaloosa
11. I Just Wanna Stop
12. Brother to Brother

And, of course, the famous finale, People Gotta Move.

I wish I could go back in time and watch the show all over again - but maybe I won't have to - there were men shooting the performance with video cameras. Perhaps it will be released on a DVD or something?
Thanks for all you do and have a wonderful day,
Anne

Gino Vannelli in an Italian newspaper.

The fun thing is that the picture in the middle is made by Barend in der Fabrik in Hamburg, Germany in 1999. The editors of This Italian newspaper stole this picture from our Gino Vannelli fan web site and printed it in this Gino Vannelli article... Such fun and amazement to see this! See the 10 years old photo-book 1 of the European Gino Vannelli SLOW LOVE tour in 1999.
