Five years and twelve songs later, I can finally say, this recording is done…almost. What I mean is that all the lyrics are written, vocals are sung, piano and guitar parts are recorded, and there’s nothing more I can do. By this time next week, I’ll really be done. By then, Dave Cook will have mixed all the songs, and my friend Lucy will have the final master to send out to the duplicator. I can hardly wait.
I’m not sure what to say here this afternoon except “thank you.” So many of you have helped to make this final stage possible. I don’t know where I’m headed with this recording yet. I’ve never put a CD out without scheduling the requisite shows to promote it. This last couple of weeks, I’ve resisted booking anything. I’m not sure why except that most of the venues I know are in New York and I live in Colorado. Traveling back and forth is becoming increasingly difficult and expensive. Every time I go back to Woodstock, I’m so glad to see everyone, but I’m also torn.
Once I have copies in hand, and your responses to lean on, maybe then my path will become clear. For now, I’m just glad the songs are written, and that there is at least one version of each recorded.
Thank you again and again.
