As promised: here's the summary accounting for the Mudcat CDs


         gross sales        Postage           adj. Gross        COGS
                                
VIOLET              $46.50                        
PLUM            $213.00

Gawd, computers are strange! I opened the tracklists for all 5 CDs several times this morning (at the top of the forum where it invites you to "Order Mudcat CDs." and each time the Strawberry track list came out blurry and the other 4 looked fine.

Now Strawberry looks fine, too. Did somebody fix it, or are there gremlins in this here computer? (I'm not on my regular powerbook; I'm on an iMac with high-speed DSL connection via Safari--which usually works beautifully.)

Anyway, it's all better now.

So order the CDs, y'hear?

I just noticed you do have a link to the "Liner Notes" on the "Ordering Info" page, but it's only to the insert blurb that Amos did. There is no link to or mention of the liner notes that have lyrics, etc.

BTW, Dick, why is Strawberry all blurry? (The track listings are really fuzzy for Strawberry--which obviously is the BEST CD, since Amos, Áine, and I are all on it!*--but not for the others.)

Hey, Dickie!
How 'bout posting a link to the liner notes with each CD cover shot and playlist in the promo box for the CDs (above the forum threads)?

It'd be great if everyone who ordered (or considered ordering) a CD a SET of 5 CDs (Think positively!) would automatically be directed to the liner notes PermaThreads.

Whaddya think?

That's great news, Dick! I'd guess if you can keep ordering them in 20-set increments, you shouldn't have to worry about not selling out. When the demand flags, we can always have a special promotion to flog off leftover inventory.

Folks, if you are finding some of the Liner Notes PermaThreads disjointed, I should tell you that Violet, Strawberry, and Plum all have complete or nearly complete lyrics in printable form. If you look thru the whole PermaThread, you'll find them.

Orchid and Rose are not as complete -- we still need some lyrics -- but I have recently posted what we have in composite form (all the songs in one post, instead of just in separate posts).

I hope we can get all the song lyrics and credits in by the end of this month.

The liner notes are ready to print for Plum and Violet. I think Strawberry lacks lyrics for only one song, and Orchid and Rose are almost done.

I have tried to set it up so you can print directly fromt he Liner Notes threads, without downloading.

In my next post, I will supply the links for the "Printable Liner Notes" --to date.

You can, if you wish, convert those to other formats. And Lin from Kansas is making them available as PDF files.

Please remember that these liner notes are WORKS IN PROGRESS. Folks may make corrections and/or add info (e.g., links to Mudcat Photos) at any time.

Now, let's hear a big "HUZZAH!" for all the folks involved in the Mudcat CD project -- a real community endeavor!

Yes, Amos,
If you open up the post that contains the small print liner notes, you should be able to print directly from that and trim and fold to go into the CD case. (If it's a hair too wide, just set your printer for, say, 97%.)

Amazing? Not really, Art. Just a glutton for punishment, I guess (or too dumb to know when not to stick your hand up when they ask for volunteers). But thanks.

Also, too dumb or too lazy to download Netscape 7 until a few days ago. When I finally did (because my main email at Onebox.com won't open any more with the older versions), I discovered all sorts of new features and capabilities for composing, editing and posting things to the net.

With Netscape 7.2, the job of doing these liner notes is much, much, much easier and faster!

Anyway, the small print liner notes are ready now for Violet and Plum and we're just an inch or so away from done for Strawberry. Lin has been helping a LOT (as did Bradfordian, Ebbie, and several others).

And I found that run-on underscoring you folks were talking about. It was on Violet, not Plum. It's fixed now.

Just got the Plum CD liner notes formatted in small print so they can be printed directly from the CD liner notes thread and folded to fit into the CD jewel case. (Why do they call it that, anyhoo?)

The post with the composite liner notes is close to the end of the thread, and there's a link to it in the first post of the thread.

We're still missing lyrics for one song and a few odd bits of other info, but take a look and tell me what you think.

Lin's PDF file notes look great, too!

Just an afterthought about formats:
My support for PDF was based on the assumption that this would be in a form that could be printed out and turned into a CD sized booklet to go in the jewel case with the CD.

If it's not for that, and it's just to go on the web somewhere, HTML with CSS will do me just fine.

By the way, Kevin (McG of H):
PDF can be searched, or at least searchable versions of PDF are possible.

Yup. The "cut" or "fold" lines will be in a different place if you add one or more lines to the liner notes.

G

BTW, Strawberry, Plum, and Violet liner notes are nearly done. We have all the lyrics for Violet but are missing a few credit items (e.g., who all is singing). I think we need lyrics for only one song on Strawberry (Bold Jackie Tar, IIRC) and one or two (Braes Of Yarrow, e.g.,) on Plum.

The composite Plum notes, to date, are now in order and posted close to the end of the thread. Look for Lin's PDF files to be available soon for Plum.

Well, folks, Lin from Kansas has graciously offered to take over the Plum CD liner notes and format them in PDF!! Thanks, Lin!

Amos, be warned -- if Lin gets near you, you're gonna get smothered with hugs and kisses for all your work on these great CDs! ;-D  )

Understatement of the year: "It was more than either of us reckoned on, I guess ... ." I seem to recall saying that formatting the liner notes would probably take two or three hours. (Pardon me while I indulge myself in a fit of hysterical laughter.)

Anyway, the liner notes ARE shaping up, and more folks like Bardfordian and Ebbie and Lin are pitching in. We'll get 'em done soon.

Lin asked why I hadn't included "fold here" or "cut here" lines in the "printable/insertable" liner notes for the Violet CD. That's because
a) I can't post a vertical border in the forum, and
b) I don't want to post horizontal divider lines until I get ALL the lyrics and other liner notes gathered for a given CD. We still need a couple of songs for Violet.

I'll add my thanks, free of editorial comments, so you are assured also that appreciation of your work was intended in my earlier post. I've bided my time, waiting while they're being perfected so haven't printed any of the notes, but each time I put the Mudcat CD's on to play and particular songs resonate strongly, I know I'll have to get those notes soon.

On the first of several links you posted, on violet you need to close your underline html (at the end of "Teasin')--it's underlined throughout the document after that.

The printable version looks excellent. I couldn't open the "small print" one.

Looks good--and like a lot of work!

Ron, here is an example of liner notes (as much as I've been able to collect to date) from the Violet CD.   http://www.mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=55152#855768
And here is a nearly complete set for Strawberry:  http://www.mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=55131#855439

And here http://www.mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=55152#875541is the smaller-print version of the Violet CD liner notes, formatted to fit into the CD case (width-wise) if you print them directly from the thread and fold or cut them to fit (length-wise).

(If you try to copy and paste, you will lose the formatting, I think.)

The song notes that were submitted for Violet after I posted those "printable" liner notes are here: http://www.mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=55152#885269

As I've said in a couple of the Perma Threads, I'll post complete notes, in proper sequence and in the small print for each CD as soon as we get notes for all the songs on the CD.  Trying to insert the missing pieces one at a time within the HTML jungle is really tedious.

The good news is that we're really close to being complete on a couple of the Perma Threads.  If you know any of the folks who haven't submitted important parts of their liner notes (e.g., who's playing what instrument, who wrote the song and when, or what the lyrics are), please feel free to light a fire under them.

Genie

PS, I could email them to folks as a Word document, I guess, but the best way I know to make sure the formatting stays the same is to print them directly from the thread.

I hate PDF - you can't search it, at least I can't. I'd much sooner it's put on the Cat in Html.

It's easy enough to print it out, or move it to word and use whatever sort of format anyone wants.

But the basic thing is, whatever is most convenient for Genie.

How it works essentially is it puts the postscript output that most printdriver produce into aviewable form using a reader. (Acrobat reader). So most good WPrs will be able to save to PDF directly and if they can't you can print to file in Postscript and Adobe Acrobat will generate a PDF from the .ps files.

It wasn't a true Word file, perhaps some sort of Word reader. I'm not a fan of Word if something else is available. The distiller program for making PDF files is also available in Adobe Pagemaker. Has anyone used that little free program? How does it work? (I could use something like that! I don't have the $$ for Adobe Pagemaker).

Word prints to PDF in most versions anyway. They can be displayed in HTML surely. Treewind couuld probably tell you, Tweed, exactly how to add the link that downloads the file in PDF to the client's disk.

Creating PDF's in Windows is as easy as printing with the free PDF995 utility which installs itself as a Windows printer.

I vote for PDF and HTML, and not Word, which certainly won't display on my browser!

The material is still being gathered inthose threads, ron and they are all we have in the way of real line notes just now. Once the final information is complete there should be no problem laying them out in a PDF file for each CD. We could even impose on weed to post them on his web site perhaps if he was willin;?

Oops. Looks like it's cut and paste until someone comes up with the definitive thread. I should'a looked closer first.

I noticed at the thread for the North Texas Irish Festival that they had a link to their schedule in Word format. It appeared on the browser page without opening a Word window, and when you printed it, it came out by default in the landscape format. Though it takes more work to prepare a document to load and print in a special way, it should be possible to prepare these liner notes to come out with small fonts the size of the CD cases.

Dere Mr. Olaska,
I think it's still a work in progress and perhaps not all the singers have contributed liners for all the songs yet. I expect Genie may be waiting to get all completed before arranging them into a final order.

Tweed

Maybe I'm not explaining myself correctly or I am missing the thread you are pointing to. I went to the perma threads and found a series of disjointed messages that are not liner notes by any stretch of the imagination. Each thread (for each CD) has a number of messages, out of sequence and in no real uniform style.

I am looking for a printable text - in some sort of order. Something that I can print out in a readable form. I see in one of the threads that Genie was planning to do this. Any word?

I've had the Mudcat CD's playing all afternoon. It's nice with a 5-CD changer, to put all of them in and put it on random play. They blow me away, how great these performances are! And what a lot of work it was to produce such excellent disks. My hat is off to all of you!

I haven't printed out the liner notes, but if you look at the perma thread at the top of this thread, Ron, you should find them. Five of them, one for each CD.

Joe,

Unless I'm missing something, I checked the threads above and could not find "liner notes".   Sure, I found several threads with the name "liner notes" in the topic, but the threads revealed a series of unconnected replies that vary in style and content.

I hope I am just overlooking it. Is there any ONE file that contains ACTUAL liner notes for this magnificent series?

Absolutely. I'll never tire of them and there isn't one I'd want to give up. Not only are they astonishingly good but Amos did a wonderful job with the order in which he presents them. I particularly remember Hesperis's 'Skylark', which creates a mood you wouldn't believe- then there is a pause, and then comes a perfect next cut.

They are simply astonishing. If anyone is in doubt whether to buy these or the latest CD from your favourite "name" - there's no choice. Get these. You won't regret it.

I've been intending to order one of the Mudcat Blue Plate Special CDs. A couple of weeks ago I decided it was time to do it. Then I realized there were 5 of them to choose between. I looked at the lists of tunes/songs on each. Seemed that each one had several that I wouldn't want to miss. Actually the price was better, ordering all five, so I went for it. Just received them yesterday. I've been playing them all day.    I couldn't be more impressed. Such variety! Such talent! Such a bargain. If you haven't ordered yours, Order them all!!
