Subject: Rick's New CD Escapes.
From: Rick Fielding
Date: 01 Sep 99 - 01:14 PM

Well, since Jeri let the (mud)cat out of the bag, I'd better do the birth announcement. The CD that I've been working on over the last few months is indeed about to see the light of day. It's called "This One's The Dreamer" on Borealis Records, and is a collection of old, new, and a couple of original songs. For anyone reasonably new to the "Cat", the instrumental "Catspaw's Rag" is indeed in honour of our resident intergalactic sage.

I've been trying for an hour to not screw up the URLs for Borealis, Folk-Legacy (who'll also be carrying it) and my own home page. T'aint no use. Nuthin' works! Tryin' to work the HTML language brings on the same anxiety attacks I used to get before Algebra class!

I've asked "catter" Tony Burns if he'll kindly guide anyone who wants the CD in the right direction, and hopefully the info will appear in this space in a few hours. Oh, boy, would I rather be singin' and playin' than trying to mess with computer stuff!

Thanks

Rick

Congratulations on the new baby, from someone who has watched the expectant father from the annex to the waiting room. I think the first video off the album (the one with the mudwrestling scene between Ginger Spice and Alanis Morrisette refereed by the Rankin Family, and you in your Roberta Delmore outfit) is pretty special too.

Rick performed a number of the songs from the new CD at his recent concert in Washington, DC, for the Folklore Society, and I can tell you this is going to be one heckuva recording. (The title song is A+++. Haven't heard the Catspaw Rag yet, but I'm sure it's worthy of its author and its namesake.) I'm in line for this one as soon as it's for sale. Way to go, Rick! Kath

OK..the cover. Well I had this idea see? I'd been browsing the Cistine Chapel website and thought "Hey, this L.D. Vinci guy is some kind of painter. With a bit of luck he could go places". Then I thought about that C.F. Martin guy, and figured he could use a plug to help sell some of those 0-18 guitars. Well when neither one was lookin, I asked Mudcatter Paul Mills (album designer, hot picker, engineer, and ham sandwich maker) to grab one of those guitars and stick it in God's hand. I figured after buggin' Him with a million questions all these years, He'd understand. After all, even though I'm still pretty confused about religions in general, I DO sing a lot of Gospel songs!

Thanks for the nice words.

Does God ever break a string in the middle of La Bamba ? And Peter, it wasn't Michelangelo that did the ceiling, it was his cousin Paco Angelo. Michel did the excruciatingly tedious trimwork around the edges.

Congrats to Rick on completing another CD, and one that I look forward to adding to my collection of Fielding masterpieces in the near future.

Congratulations Rick!

Is there a cassette version for the diehards among us? Or do I have to bootleg somebody else's copy of the CD?

Just kidding, of course I would never do that, unless it was from somebody who I knew had too much money. Actually I met a great guitarist/songwriter that way - I copied her band's CD then contacted her to explain that I didn't want to rip her off and offered to send her a check, and now we're friends. Honesty does pay off every now and then.

Sorry for the misinformation on Rick's cover. Here's the correct info: Mike Angelo painted God, Curly Boy Stubbs took the picture of the guitar and played the "St. Louis Tickle" on it, and L. D. Vinci made the ham sandwiches. C. F. Martin was in the back room arranging for backup singers for the title song...we're still waiting.

Hope this clears up the confusion.

Well, I don't know about any "Anglicans with Guitars" group. Must be a secret society. Maybe they're there to pick up girls! By the way Michael, I spent 10 minutes on the Mudcat and then went back to "polishing the pearl", oiling the "board", and changing the pegs on my new acquisition. (see Cheap guitar thread)

I erroniously told a couple of people that Borealis Records didn't have an 800 number. Of course they do..it's an "877" number. Their website is up near the top of this thread.

Tony, thanks for the nice words about the CD. And Sandy and Caroline thank you so much for your support in the U.S. Without you guys I'd still be playing the Royal Hotel in Kapuskasing Ontario, or doing the half-time show at the Chuck-Wagon races in Elk's Crotch Alberta!

Sandy, don't want to bypass Folk Legacy and Borealis, deprive the 'Cat of it's share or make any other 'Catters jealous, but McKnees is my sister and she gets the first copy of "This One's The Dreamer" to cross the Atlantic.

I'm gonna try to slip that one into the Paton songbag as quickly as I can. Ask him to send me the chords he uses (Borealis didn't put the chords into the booklet as Folk-Legacy did with "Lifeline").

Folks,

This CD is a gem. "Catspaw's Rag" is really a beautiful tune on banjo that Mr. F. wrote for our friend Pat. "The Wind & the Rain" , "In My Life", "Salty Dog"---fine singing---SUPERB backup band with Paul Mills/Curly Boy Stubbs (who did such fine work with Stan Rogers), Grit Laskin, Bill Garrett, Chris Whitely & several others.

Just one man's opinion.

Well, I've had my 1st quick listen & enjoyed it very much! Like "Lifeline", "This one's the dreamer" has a nice mix of music, w/ vocal & instrumental all very well-done. I loved "Catspaw's Rag" already. Others that struck my fancy, 1st time through, were "Fa Sol La," "Sing w/ the Angels," (I'm humming that one!), & "When We Gather Once More." I'm sure others will be added to my list of favorites as I have time to listen more carefully. Thanks, Rick!

Thanks so much, Art and Barbara. Sandy's mention of the chords in the booklet bears mentioning. When I asked him to do that AND make the print REALLY large, I never thought it would expand the booklet to a VERY substantial 39 pages! The booklet with the Borealis album is also quite extensive, and I had the choice of either going with a couple of pages of pictures of everyone involved, or bigger print and chords. I chose somewhat bigger print (I can read it without the specs) and the pics with a short blurb. Figured since most folks are computerised now I could post the chords on my web-site - which I'm trying to do now.

The majority of the accompaniment for Patrick Spencer is comprised of two descending bass runs. They're both really quite simple. The first is from the C note on the 5th string and runs down to the G note on the 6th string. The bass run is: C plus two down strums (2,3) remember it's in waltz time, B (2,3), A (2,3), G (2,3)

The second run starts on the G note (3rd string open) and comes down F(2,3),E(2,3), D(2,3).

The key to making these runs sound smooth is what chords you're strumming on the "2,3". So, back to the first run: C (strum C chord during the "2,3". B (strum Em), A (strum Am), G..I use an Am7 (index finger on 2nd string, 1st fret. middle finger on 4th string, 2nd fret, and ring finger on 6th string, 3rd fret.)

Second Run plus chords: G (just strum top 3 strings open), F (same thing), E (ditto), D (yup, same again)

Chord chart: (/ = boom cha-cha)

C/ b/ a/ g/ F// C//
g/ f/ e/ d/ F// G//
C/ b/ a/ g/ F// C//
g/ f/ e/ d/ F/ G/ C//

And you drown if you don't get it right! Many thanks for the time and trouble....
yours, Peter T. ("I saw the auld moon yestereen, with the new moon in her arms" -- sort of miss that line, also "The king sits in Dunfermlin town, drinking the blood-red wine"). Still, great song. Bass runs, grrrrr.

Let's revive the use of "yestreen" (yester-evening)in our daily language. What a beautiful word!
