So stay tuned to this spot!

...Anytime now....

...Don't touch that dial....

...Right....

....Y'all come back real soon hear???

Silver songs at daybreak
When the singin's o'er.
And th'assembled 'Catters
Can't sing any more.
Pickin' hands seem weary,
Session has been long,
Still th'assembled 'Catters
Want one more song,
Want to sing one final song.

LOL, MM!! Well, I dunno -- maybe simplicity is the word I was looking for. You can confuse the two pretty easily, huh?

Here's the deal: the display of all the materials is a long table and the tools I have all add crap in the HTML they generate, such as styles and other fancy bells and whistles. Jeff asked me to trim the superfluous stufgf out of the HTML. When I have done so, it will be a long simple table listing all the contributions so far.

I don't want anyone thinking I have ignored them, even though I have been submerged in more pressing demands from the 3D world, and taken a "vacation".

Karen, the current plan is not to exclude anyone, but to sort representative cuts from all contributors into a series of CDs. If this turns out to be unfeasible, I'll bite the editorial bullet about inclusion/exclusion but it is not an approach I want to take if I csan help it -- not quite in the spirit of the thing -- despite Art telling me I have to learn to say "No"! LOL!

Tell me, why do they sing for their money
And why do they busk for short pay?
They ain't making their part, when they sing from the heart,
But the world loves to hear folkies play!

(Fretrider's Lament, 2002)

Well, ya know what I mean, huh?

Never fear, we'll get there!

Greetings, fellow Folkies!  The Mudcat CD Project stirs!! It mumbles!! It must be.....alive!!

I have finally had some time today to sort through the many wonderful tapes, files and CDs you all have sent. Thank you so much for singing and taping and sending.

Here is a preliminary table of the music that has been sent in. The spots marked TBD mean it hasn't been figgered out yet.

Please look this over and see if you can spot where I bolloxed up, left someone off by mistake, crossed up a name, or forgot something we had discussed.  I haven't left anyone out intentionally, I promise!! But I'm not the sharpest iglet in the nest sometimes :>)  And there was an awful lot of traffic being generated so if I dropped a stitch or two, be forebearing, eh?

You can let me know by PM or by emailing me.

If you have been remiss and would still like to get something in under the wire, Big Mick is holding the door ajar with his prominent spud for a while longer!!

Regards,  

Amos

And now....the table you have all been waiting for.....

As predicted I made one goof -- Amergin should also be on the list with his poems, one of which will be included. They are worth the listen.

Tweed -- 's not a problem, see -- the trick is listening to the singer more than the song.

Awaiting other comments if any.

Also waiting for Mick's thongs (thilly boy!) andf Max' remarks or conclusions on logistics.

You STILL have a window of time in which to sing, tape and send if you ACT NOOOWWW!!

Don't miss this chance to have your own singing heart transmitted around the Blue Planet!!

Wow, Amos -- that's about 80 songs right there... and you're asking for more?? ;-)

We're looking at 6 or 7 CDs right now (depending on length of songs). I do believe it is time to discuss possibly cutting it down to a more manageable size. Not just because of the work and cost involved in publishing all this material, but because after all...

This is supposed to benefit the Mudcat! (in case someone forgot) and it appears to me that a 2-or 3-CD set would find a lot more buyers than a 7-CD set.

Just a thought, Brother Amos. Let's hear others' ideas.

Cheers,
Michael

Can I vote for Kevin McGrath's "Green Heart of Harlow", Larry's (InObu) "Yvette's Song" and the gorgeous "Eagle Eye" from Ten Penny Bit (Robin 2). Are the "preferred cuts" the preferences expressed by the selectors or by the artists?

Hesp: I don't think so, but I am not at my home machine.

alanabit: Votes duly noted. The preferences are either those expressed by the artist and endorsed by the editor, or those of the editor. We honor the artists whenever possible -- the only exception would be for considerations of legal clearance on songs used. Larry's Yvette's Song is already on the table. At Barbara's request, "Last Old Shovel" will probably hit the cutting room floor.

All opinions will be respectfully considered; beyond that, no promises, okay? I have my sanity to consider! :>)

I was surprised by the songs Amos picked from my CD! I would have put Connecticut Waltz in the running (the only instrumental), but I completely defer to his judgment. I'm just glad to be included on the sampler, so it should reflect the taste of the producer. Thanks, Amos!

For the record, Amos, and all, I am not the "Genie" who is singing with IanB on "My Man." Sad to say, I've met Ian B. only via Mudcat (and a his "Caleb's Cool Yule Tape," for which I still owe a donation.)

I noticed there was a "Genie" who is some sort of significant other to another Mudcatter, who has been referred to in another thread or two, but she is not a Mudcat member under that specific name.

Maybe some of you other catters can clarify who it is named Genie who sings with Ian.

My aplogies -- I thought it hard to see how you two had collaborated, but in my weary frame of mind I let it slide -- I guess I just thought, in this day and age anything is possible!; now it seems impossible! The label said Mudcatter Genie and I hadn't realized there might be two!! So I took the one I knew. Wodda maroon!

Ya want I should put one of your fine choons from the PNWG on the list, then?

I jhave a fine MP3 of you doing Summer Wages with Rangeroger introducing it with a litany of his aches and pains, midconversation! **bg** I'd have to get two releases for that one!! Plus maybe some accident insurance!! LOL! But your Summertime is mighty fine!! :>) Or send me an MP3??

Amos, if you want to use one of the songs I did at Jen's, that's fine, but if you want the best quality sound, I'd suggest either "Drive You Out Of My Mind," "Thirty-to-Fifty-Odd Seals," or "Harmony: One Out Of Many," from the tape I gave you at Jen's. All of those were recorded in a semi-professional studio.

There's also an MP3 of you and me doing the Irving Berlin duet "Play A Simple Melody/I Want To Listen To Rag" which you made at your house.

Or I could send you a tape of the current (shorter) version of my 9-11 song (Valley Of The Towering Shadows).

As my 15-year-old niece would say,
"Whatever..."

Why not have 2 (or 3?) different sets of 3ish cd's each? I know I'll definitely kick out for all, but if some would rather not spend as much at one time, a choice of one or another of many would make that possible.

Amos? I think I would have to ask that my band get credit on the cover. If it's my handle alone, it doesn't really give credit where credit is due. I am only one of 6, after all.

I cannot *wait* to hear this thing (these things???). That is one impressive list of artists *and* songs.

So, Amos m'friend! What's the ETA????

CS:

Roger that -- Band it shall be.

ETA? Sigh...it depends on several things. I am waiting to hear from Max, but he was supposed to be discussing lofgistics with Dick, and Dick is on travel at present. On the technical side I am going through the tapes now, getting the selections on to Minisdisk and thence to computer, but it's a bit of a slow process, and I am juggling a significant number of 3D deadlines and honeydews on top.

I would say a couple of months. I will sit down and do a scheduel review and see if I can move that forward some. In our original plan we were aiming for release in early September. That's out of range now. Partly because I had to shift a lot of that time over to work overtime.

So now we are probably looking at Thanksgiving for all the loose ends to be rounded up, logistics, normalizing the files, final build for at least Disk One or Set One, and working out the distirbution channel. I hope this isn't too disappointing to anyone, but I am trying to be realistic in a universde dedicated to Foobaring in multiple dimensions simultaneously.

I was a bit surprised to see "Firelight" as a preferred track. I've no complaints, I love doing it, but I have always thought that it was an average song redeemed by Markus's brilliant arrangement. It's just that it's the only personal song on the album - and very much the sort of thing which frequently gets a hammering from Mudcatters who (often for very good reasons) distrust singer/songwriters. You have heard a lot of other artists though, so you have a clearer picture of what sort of texture the album will eventually have. Only a few songs can make it to final selection anyway - and it's a privelege to take part. From what I have heard of other 'Catters so far, I want a copy anyway!

OPINIONS SOLICITED

One option which is available is to put the entire collection on a disk in MP3 format. This means they could only be played on a device such as a computer which could handle playing MP3s, but that an ordinary audio CD player would not be able to play the songs. The tradeoff is you woud get the whole collection on a single disk. two at most.

Alternative is to create audio CDs which any CD player can play (including most computer CD-play applications). These are limited to about 20 songs or 70 minutes to a disk. We have somewhere between 60 and 90 tracks to offer, so you can see from the math that quite a few disks are involved.

If we continue with the plan for audio CDs, there is no reason we cannot offer the MP3 Disk as an alternative.

In that case I would design the first 2 audio CDs as a set, choosing the best representative cross section and get it into distribution, followed by the second 2-CD Set later on. If we go over 80, a third round might be needed.

Your opinion is invited as to which you, personally, would find the most appealing for your own enjoyment: a large number of MP3 files on one disk. or an audio CD set.

Speak now while the options are open!!

Very best regards,

Amos

I would like to see an audio CD. As I suggested in my PM a few days ago, there may well be other 'Catters who are willing to send money up front to order copies. That is one possible way of paying for the first pressing - which would be higher quality. The other thing is that if some sort of cultural exchange does come off, (something that has been mooted on other threads) the CD will be a good way of presenting ourselves to potential backers.

Well, one of the reasons for doing this is to get to hear each other. The audio CDs could be sold to mudcats as well as the general public, thus helping the mudcat financially. MP3s would not be as commercially interesting, so they could be made available online to members only! (Yahoo groups have options available only to members, such as photos, databases, etc.)

I don't really care about the format but I thought part of the point was for Mudcat to make some $$$. If you do MP3 that won't happen. I personally can't afford to buy more than 2 at a time but I would eventually buy them all. MP would be nice because I would listen at my computer, but the speakers are not loud enough to hear anywhere more than 4 feet from the computer and I can't as yet burn CD's.
