SO very close

Some news here, good and bad. We had to cut three songs from the cd today. Time is running out for mixing and it was simply to long. One of the songs, Bedlam Boys, didn't seem to fit what is going on on the rest of the cd and we all had issues with it, Malena, Adam, Leo and I , so we are saving it for the time being. Sonnet in the Dark , a lovely song I did with the Flash Girls, needs more work too, and the I Love Stephen Merrit from Lojo Russo needed to much work in the mix, so these three are out.

Good news is we are doing an EP for release along about St Patricks Day, with these and perhpas a re-mix or another song or two. So it's not all bad, and they are not GONE, just waiting for the right moment.

More good news, we finnish tomorrow no matter what happens. I have to leave by 6 for my Folk UnderGround show, but Adam and Leo are going to stay until it's done. ( Leo is Leo Whitebird, our Engineer , he and Adam are truly evil together, wouldn't make an album without either of them )

Monday we Master the thing. Which means Things get done to it, like Normalized and Finalized and Faded and all sorts of weird things I'll never understand, but it's what makes it sound all lovely.

Then Tuesday it goes to press.

Fingers Crossed......

Love and Albums, Lorraine

Yay for the end being in sight! Good luck, not that this charmed collaboration needs it I think.

Many thanks! We are very happy about the way things are going, and if our luck holds, only a couple more weeks until the cd is out, hurrah! This has been a charmed project, the studio has been so fun ( mostly , some of those fiddle parts! ) and we have had SO much fun working together, which isn't always the case with bands.

Man, I cannot believe how fast you guys work. David and I work at home, so everything is electronic and on a long, long timetable. Mixing songs in 4 hours is like...well to me it's a miracle! Our mastering alone took a whole month. I'm really amazed at you guys, and congratulate you.

Huzzah for almost done! Birthday money is being set aside for the CD, you know...I think it's great that making the CD has been all this hard work, but that you guys have had fun too. Not enough people enjoy what they do, I think.

I was just browsing various blogs as I was doing a search on the word halloween, and I just wanted to say that I really like what you've done with your blog, even though it wasn't particularly related to what I searched for. I appreciate your postings, and your blog is a good example of how a blog should be done. I've only just recently started a Posters website - feel free to visit it when you get a chance if you wish. Much success, antonio.
