Part V of this Grand Experiment in a world folkie voices CD for the Mudcat can be found over here.

Offers of voluntary help are popping up and people are sending in their CDs, tapes, and MP3 files (we also accept .wav and .aif readily). My office is looking like some wild bachelor professor's digs!!

Here's the schedule for producing the planet's first ALL MUDCAT SAMPLER CD:

Collection of Candidates  ---- up to end of May

Review and Prelim Selection --- May-June
Final Selection-------------------------- ------June
Initial Build- ------------------------------July
Quality Enhancement/

Normalization -------------------- -----July - August
Final Build---------------------------- ---------- August
Organize Logistics for Distrib: June--- ----- August
Final QA---------------------------- ---------------- - -- August
Release  --------------------- ---------- ---- ----------- Early September.

< P> Still a lot of logistics and other decisions to be made, but right now we are in the SEND 'EM IN NOW phase for a but longer. So don't be shy, don't postpone, don't beat yourself about the ears -- just SING IT, WRAP IT, and ship it on out!!

Peg's CD just arrived -- I am unwrapping it as I speak (don't ask!) and Mudlark's tape is in the mail, and Sandy Paton has sent a CD en route, and so has Margaret MacArthur. So we're really running like molten gold here. Thanks to all of you for all you've done so far!!

More as it happens!!

Weekend's here!!

GREAT opportunity to finally make that track for the Mudcat CD!! Well? Don't just sit there staring at the screen!! Break out that MiniDisc recorder, dang it!

Best regards,

A

Very nicely done, Áine and Layne. Way to go!!!!!

OK, gang -- if you have been woffling, take a page from Áine's book and get them songs out!

Good news!

I think we've found a better solution than MP3.com,. with manageable starting costs, better margins, less complexity, and better control over the final product.

The company that offers these services can be found at http://www.mixonic.com/ (Click here). It might be of interest to anyone who wants to get into CD production of their own stuff.

I have written the idea up to Mad Max and we'll see what he and Dick think of the whole thing.

Hey, guys -- this is so cool!! We are on track, even slightly ahead of schedule (except for you sluggards who are still woffling! :>)) and we're still having some fun! We must be doing something right with that Ole Mudcat Magic. Hey -- think there's a song there?

That Mudcat Magic has me in its spell
Mudcat Magic that you weave so well
"Wildwood Flower" 'til my thumbs turn blue
The same old witchcraft when I sing with you...

Well, it's a start :>)

Keep 'em rolling!

Hi Amos, thanks for your kind words. Some people might feel that they don't need to hear yet another version of "The Blacksmith" (after all it's a rather well-worn song) but if you like it (and I know I like it) by all means go for it!

Andf if you don't know what the song title refers to, you have missed reading one of the 'Cat's absolutely best threads ever, started by Big Mick way back when, called Why We Sing which you can read by clicking on the linked title in this sentence.

Amos - the mixonic thing looks great. I propose we go with Option 1, get our own jewel boxes and print our own inserts, and assemble them ourselves (spreading the work among five or six people). We could do it for (roughly) $3, sell it for $10 (a good deal!) which leaves $7 for Mudcat.

That is, of course, if we're agreed on CD-Rs instead of pro CDs. Are we?

And hey - at these prices, and considering the glut of material you've received, we should seriously think about a 2-CD set. I don't think the jewel cases would be much more expensive than regular ones.

Waddaya think?

My current thought is a phased series of disks (Volumes 1 to probably 4). May be two volumes of two disks each? I'm not wanting to exclude people -- I'd rather stretch the set to include a representative cut from everyone. But I won't be able to say for sure until all the candidates are in.

Max is pondering the options as well, since he wants a quality product.

I think CDRs is our destiny unless someone knows where to get a grant for seed expenses on the pro route. Open to discussion, and further exploration of resources.

Sure Ian! But the notion of a series was to enable us to include all representatives -- not updates from those in the earlier parts! I'm still open for replacements on the existing candidate tracks; I can't see beyond getting the first "set" out, however it will be packaged, at this point. Good on ya for forging ahead!

I like "Creeping Jane" from Bron's album. Somehow it got stuck in my head and reverberated around it all the time I was in the UK a couple of weeks back. In the unlikely event that I make the final cut amongst all this talent on offer, I don't care whether you use my Mudcat name or my real name (on my CD).

Its 43 minutes long, but I couldn't cut any of it without sacrificing the basic integrity of the medley. I'm sure you'll like it, but if you can't use it, no big deal. I'll just drop my member ID and masquerade as a Guest and make you the target of numerous personal attacks.

Oh, also a waiver foregoing your right to any expression of resentment in any medium whether public or private, explicitly or implicitly, under any name real or assumed, with an appropriate indemnification of the party of the second part (that's you, man) commiting to honor substantial penalties in the event that he acts like a part of the hindmost part.

Hey, I got tapes, I got CDs!! I got music from Rick music from Kytrad, I gotta lovely tape from karen_k, a CD from Franky Jones. I got cuts from Khandu, and believe me that boy Khan! I got CD from DharmaBum!! CDs from Margaret MacArthur. Man, mah head is spinning at the sheert beauty of ti all! Holey Moley!!

I am not just sitting idle ion it all either. I am organizing information, working out best technique for tape==> digital within existing resources, and doing preliminary sorting on all these great cuts.

Whooof!!

Now that May is over and the VAST majority of you have done proud by the Cat and gotten files in, I would like to make arrangements for exceptions rather than just slam the door closed arbitrarily.

If you were running a bit late, or still want to send in a file that would add to the beauty and power of the Mudcat Sampler CD Series, just email me and we'll work it out, okay?

We are now officially in the Season of "Final Selection", which means tabulating all the stuff that is in and sorting it and selecting the representative cuts and so on. A lot of this has been going on since day 1, but that's the name of the current part of this game.

Crack that whip and turn them wheels. We got miles to go before we sleep!

My apologies for the recent silence -- not for lack of interest!! The good news is I think Ihave the technical issue on transferring audio tape to digital licked.

plus I got a great tape which captured a PalTalk session (The Bubble-Wrap Session) being sung by the incomparable WyoWoman, who is a one-woman cathedral choir.

And greg_stephens' CD arrived!! I am tearing at it with my teeth. And I told you about Dharma and Frank 's submissions.

OK, guys!! Last call!! You-all got a buried decision to send something in for this CD series, unbury it now!! Ye raggle taggle dogies gotta get up the chute, now, y'hear? C'mooooooon!!! Yip! Yip!!

Very best,

A

Gee MM, I'm not sure I recognize that handle -- lemme relisten to the tape. Maybe there were two Bubble Wrap sessions?

Hell, Chip, it ain't out yet!! But when it is it will be a humbly tendered gift from the heart, as a return flow to the greatest site on the Internet -- better than SlashDot!! Better than Wired News! Better than ...gasp... TheOnion!!

UPDATE!!

I have been remiss in not posting updates but I have, I think, all the files with one or two exceptions that will be candidates. If you still have one you really want included, let me know ASAP, OK?

My next task is choosing songs from the tapes and CDs which had multiple candidates on them, and transferring them all to the MP3 format on my hard disk, and assembling the sequencing for the CDs 1 to n. This task is about a third or one-half complete. Wherever someone has voiced a preference I will try to honor that and will advise if there is any problem with it.

My progress was badly slowed by a two-barrled overload of First Universe (meatspace) work which landed simulataneously from my company and my Dept of Defense project people which has seriously burned up my discretionary time for the last three weeks; then I got a demandng letter from someone I co-authored a book with asking for chapter edits and that ate up another few hours. So I have been busy on less important but more pressing stuff!

The flag is still flying on the Mudcat Sampler and you are all greatly appreciated for the cheers and support and most of all for the songs. Thanks a milllion!

Regards,

A

If you see Big Mick, tell him he still owes me one!!

Yo, Spudman! You owe Amos one! (Aside to Amos - What, a spud? Ohhhh, a SONG! Right.)

Glad to hear it's going so well.

Oh, Faire One, dinna fear -- my cable modem ISP will send me files of Grate Syze! I dunno what the largest I've gotten is, but I reckon it is up to 8 MB in email; and I can download larger stuff in seconds. Send away!

And thanks!

Hey alison, I've found the best way to send large files is via Yahoo IM, or some other IM program. I had a bunch of large (>5M) files to send and fought with e-mail for a while before trying the IM. The IM file send went thru fine. Then only question then is coordinating programs and times with the receiving person.

Failing that you can get a reliable transfer service at www.MyDocsOnline.com for a reasonable cost.
