Subject: RE: New Mudcat CDs Phase 2 Pre-Production
Noreen, thanks for the link. I have the mp3 of John's song, but I we would like each contributor to provide the lyrics for the songs they submit, since transcribing them is time-consuming and often results in mondegreens or misspelled names, etc.   And the contributors need to write their own background notes about the songs.
Thanks to Maeve, I got in touch with John, and he did send me both.

JJHW: [["Should we send in lyrics and stuff or better wait to be asked for exactly what is required?"

Here's what we need from each contributor (or at least what we've been collecting):
1. Song title
2. Music by _________, Lyrics by _________, copyright year ________    (If "trad," it helps to know the country or region of origin, e.g, "Traditional Welsh)
3. Arranged by ________ (e.g., in the case of a trad. song

4.   Performer(s).   
___________: vocals
___________: guitar & vocals
___________: banjo
___________: flute

5. background note (if the song needs one).   40 words or fewer if possible

6. lyrics - as sung in this recording -- (punctuation helps!)

7. "Source" - e.g., if the audio file you submitted is a track from an existing CD, give the album name; if it's a live performance recording, what was the venue?

8. your website (or myspace page, YouTube channel, etc.) if you'd like that info included in the liner notes

9. your email address (and whether you'd like that also included in the digital liner notes booklet)

Unless you know which "elf" is doing the liner notes for the CD your song is on, just send this info to Barrie (Bradfordian).   If you post it here instead, it will also get to the relevant elf.
