The long awaited CD from the Windsor, Ontario band which included MudCatter Clinton Hammond, has finally been released!

A mix of 15 songs of CC's take on traditional, contemporary, and original work, 'The Long Road' is their first CD. From their liner notes:

"As we worked through the recording, mixing, and mastering of this CD, we found that many of the songs presented here tell the tale of a journey of one kind or another. It seemed only natural, then, as we discussed ideas for a title, that 'The Long Road' was a fitting name. We've included songs and instrumentals that have proven over the years to be our audiences' favorites... They happen to be our favorites too.   Cheers, Celtic Cross"

Members of Celtic Cross on this CD are:

Mark Crampsie: Octave Mandolin, Flute, Guitar, Bodhran, Whistle, Lead and Harmony vocals
Frank Edgley: Fiddle, Harmony Vocals
Clinton Hammond: Guitars, Lead and Harmony Vocals
Brian VanderPryt: Bass, Guitar, Bodhran, Lead and Harmony Vocals

And Some samples of the music:

Hillcrest Mine - Lead singer :Clinton

Raglan Road - Lead singer:Mark

Homeland - Lead singer:Clinton

The Celtic Cross - Lead singer:Mark

South Australia - Lead singer:Mark

All the above samples are around 30 seconds each and downsampled to keep the files small. If you'd like a copy, PM or email Clinton Hammond, and he'll set you up.

Enjoy, eh!
Steve

The problem with MMario is fixed. It looks like certain browsers don't recognize what to do with mp3 files.

Older netscape is possibly one.

Anyways, the links work, so enjoy eh!

And could a joe clone clean up the thread, please?

Thanks, steve

I found out from my ISP that I have more webspace with my account than originally thought.

Therefore, if you listened before, listen again.. The samples are a bit longer and better quality.

Let us know what you think, and if you like it, give it a buy!

Played the whole thing this morning (real early cuz I couldn't sleep). Heather was sleeping in the basement (no..we didn't have a fight..she was watching a late movie!) and when she DID get up, she said she was dreaming about BODRHANS all night! Hmmmmmmm....maybe I had it a bit too loud.

Cheers
