Thread Name: new CD by Roy Harris--gotta hear this !
Subject: RE: new CD by Roy Harris--gotta hear this !
I passed the comments on to Roy. He answered along the lines of - well, I long ago learned that you can't please 'em all. I'm disappointed that Sunley didn't like the album, but he paid his money and has a right to his opinion. Nothing I can do about the guitar ballads I'm afraid. I've been an a-capella singer for too many years. As for the audience doing the work, I've always been asociated with a lot of chorus singing, my audiences have come to expect that, and turn up to see me because they like the involvement. But I'm in there singing too. And most of those songs with audience would sound a bit thin without it I think. The album was supposed to show what a session with Roy Harris was like and I think the producer did a good job on that. But, if you put your head above the parapet you must expect to get shot at now and then. The man didn't like the album and he expressed his opinion frankly. I accept that.No complaints.
