Subject: Mudcat CD Sampler Arrived!
From: Barbara Shaw
Date: 03 Dec 02 - 12:02 PM

My set of 5 arrived a few minutes ago, and I have to say I'm really impressed. The whole package is very well done. The graphics look great, and the two essays in the liner notes are beautifully written - one by Amos about the recordings and the Mudcat, and the other by Dick Greenhaus about the Digital Tradition.

And wow, I'm listening to people who were just names on a computer screen up until now, and the music is amazing! I'm very proud (and humbled) to be included in this collection.

Thanks to all the people who contributed and thanks to all who worked so hard to get this wonderful collection created. Thanks, thanks, thanks. And now I have some listening to do...

Mine is here as well.... but I promised they would be a birthday present I would be really excited about and that is almost waiting til Christmas.

Perhaps one from each kid and one now to hold me over wouldn't be cheating too bad.... SLAP!!!... but they look so nice...

Thanks all!!!

Barbara, I am thrilled to hear it!! This really is the Big Milestone!!
Thanks!!


It must be understood that some of the cuts were recorded in more primitive conditions than others, and while I did what I felt was the best Ic ould do with all of them, some are going to soundf much better than others depending on what the source material was.

But I really hope everyone likes them!!

We will like them Amos, and much thanks for your hard work.

Please stop saying that this is a world first, though. Take a look through the alt.banjo newsgroup and see that we did a similar thing two years ago.

Thanks. I like ours a lot better, though. The historic first is not just the gathering of music, but the gathering of ordinary folks singing songs. Anyway, it is a moot point, I am sure.

Interesting to see the Banjo crowd did such an enthusiastic job of it. Looks like they had to go through all the same hoops we did!

Actually, the basic idea's been around for a while. In 1995 and 1997, the readership of alt.music.lightfoot put together two Internet Tribute CDs. They were well-received, and also done by ordinary folks.

I like the idea of the Mudcat collection even more, though. Much more ambitious in scope, and it's not a single-purpose fan tribute, but instead a collection of folksongs and originals by those same ordinary folks. With Beth in grad school and me planning to finish my Political Science master's soon, I'd better get a gig or two soon to be able to afford 'em though....

I love the Blickifier, btw. Sure, I know how to just do the code, but I just like the idea of using something called a "blickifier."


Hoping there's eventually a sequel so he can get off his butt and contribute a track or two,

Chris

When I catch up with all my other deferred tasks around here maybe we'll do a Disk Six -- Aqua -- or something. Reykjavik has already promised material for it.

This thread will come to a more-or-less abruot end in about two to three days unless some more orders roll in--by tomorrow I'll have shipped everything I received orders for.

Right now, US deliveries will take 2-3 days. Very shortly, the combination of Christmas rush and some shoulder surgery that's scheduled for the 6'th will slow things up.

Order Early and often!

Now, I just started saving by giving up going out for breakfast every morning. The money I save in a month equals the cost of a set, so...mayhap I'll be able to give you a call tomorrow, Dick. Good luck with the surgery!

SD, you do Aqua, (aren't there any more fruits to name it after? How about Tangerine?:-) I'm in, too. Finally starting to get my voice back!

And, folks, I understand that the first 22 orders have already covered the overhead costs, so everything you buy from here on in (less the actual cost of postage/shipping) goes to SUPPORT MUDCAT!

Where else can you get ca. 21 songs on a single CD for $15 with at least $13 of it going to support your favorite nonprofit musical organization?

Get those CDs now, while Dick can still use keyboards, push phone buttons, pick up phone receivers, etc!

(Seriously, Dick, I hope the surgery doesn't take you out of commission for long.)

I've only made it through a couple of the cds so far. It's great to hear Kendall's rich voice again - haven't heard or seen him in awhile. There's lots of good music and great singers on these cds.

Have to say that so far two jumped out as songs that Frank and I might like to try ourselves: Cool Cup of Water by khandu and Deep Shady Grove by Kytrad. So who is Whitfield, the songwriter of Cool Cup of Water? Is that you, khandu?

This is fun! Puts a dent in the Christmas budget, but made a great gift to myself.

I never thought of that aspect, Barbara -- exposure to new songs you want to learn!! Great fringe benefit!!

Khandu is the author on Cup of Water, and Deep Shady Grove is a traditional Appalachian tune, I believe.

This morning I got the two sets I ordered. After listening to the first two all I can say is that it's wonderful to hear all of you. Putting sounds to all the names is something special-----it really is. These are the most honest performances I've heard since I last listened to my old Library Of Congress Archive Of American Folksong LP albums--the ones in those gray and red cardboard jackets.

Congratulations to you all. And THANKS !!! (I'm proud to be a little part of it.)
