Well, its official-- my flight is booked and I just got off the phone with Mick-- I'm on my way to Toronto for the release! Can't wait to see Rick, Heather, Peter T., Paul, Mick and all the gang at Borealis, and to celebrate this wonderful occasion with you guys.

I'm very lucky to have been a tiny little part of this album, it was a great experience and I can't wait to hear the finished product.

MaryLou says I better pack a heavy coat-- not sure what this Californee girl's gonna do in Tronna in February... but we'll find out on Feb 16th!

I'm very excited about the way this release idea has come together. All of the Mudcatters notions starting from some kind of "virtual release" party through to being able to purchase CDs so that Rick and Heather get the most possible out of it have all come to fruition.

The release built around the radio show is a perfect idea because it connects this whole community to celebrate Rick's new CD with him no matter where you are. We're doing it at the Borealis office because it's big enough for folks to drop in, say "Hi" and pick a few tunes if they would like to. The CIUT studio is a tad too small for this. And speaking of CIUT, they are fully on the bandwagon and supplying all the support they can for this effort. Big thanks!!

The plans at the moment are this:

The virtual release party will take place on February 16th. It will be an extended broadcast of "Acoustic Workshop" from 7PM 'til 9PM EST. This will be streamed to the internet as usual. We will of course be featuring the CD, but there will also be performances by friends who will drop in.

There will be a toll-free number for people to call in and we'll be able to receive emails and read them on air. You'll also be able to order CDs during the broadcast through the phone or email and charge it to Visa or Mastercard if you'd like. You should know that Borealis has agreed that in doing this you'll be purchasing the CDs from Rick and Heather - that means they'll be getting the lion's share of the proceeds. It would be nice if more record companies were this fair-minded!

We'll be letting you know the number and email addresses as soon as they're settled on. We'll also let you know the coordinates for the Borealis office in case you'll be able to be in Toronto and attend.

Stay tuned for further details!

Cheers,

Paul

Rick and Heather,
Just jumped on this thread and got the GREAT news. Count me in for a purchase, and know that I'll be blowing up balloons, wearing my party hat, and generally carrying on in support of the virtual release party that goes along with it. Hooray for you Rick. Hooray for Heather for being all you are. And Hooray for Paul, who I've never met but deeply admire, for helping make it happen on the fast track. A piece of truly good news, this!

Heather, how much is it for the CD & shipping? If you don't know the CAD to USD, there's a currency converter here, but it changes constantly, and it looks like the CAD is a bit lower today than it's been.

Those of us who already know where you live can just send a check, eh? But I'd advise people to PM Duckboots so she knows how many CDs she'll need to send.

I also thank Paul Mills and Borealis as I'm very glad to see this musical bud bloom. Would they like to be invaded by a few Yankees? (Those from south of the border, not New Englanders, north-of-the-Mason-Dixoners or members of the NY baseball team.)

Hi there, thought I'd let you know what's happening with the Rick CD release. I got a call from Paul Mills this morning and he told me that the CD should be ready in two or three weeks, which is really fast work by Borealis and great news.

I guess all you folks who said you wanted to be first on your block to have "Acoustic Workshop could send me a PM and I'll start addressing envelopes and sticking stamps.

It looks like there will be a virtual release CD party at the Borealis Records offices, with a remote broadcast from Acoustic Workshop, CIUT FM, 89.5. We'll be able to take phone calls and get e-mails from listeners so it'll be interactive, but you'll have to supply your own wine and cheese and blow up your own balloons.

Many thanks to Borealis (Bill, Grit and Linda) for all the extra effort they've taken to get this CD out so quickly, and more thanks to Paul, just because.

Heather

Howdy folks,

We're sending the master and artwork off to the presses this week and I'll inform this forum as to when the little silver discs arrive.
A remote broadcast from the Borealis office sounds like a fine idea for a launch party. We have the room to set up a remote and for that matter a couple of in house pickers.
Cheers to all.

OK folks, as much as we'd all like to head south, it looks like the the launch will be in snowy Toronto. There seems to be a concensus about having the radio show as the focus and that makes sense. I'd like to investigate perhaps having a remote broadcast beamed to the station from a location which has a bit more room for drop-in guests and the odd performer. (Maybe the Borealis office?) My suspicion is that the CIUT "attic" studios mught be a bit cramped for this particular occasion. Heather, how can I find out about CIUT's mobile options?

The final master and graphics made the Borealis office this morning. Yippee!!

Poor Willio-O, fingers too frozen to type?

The temperature is going down, down, down and it's going to be really cold for the next few days - so, yes, I think we'd favour San Diego or Texas but it'll have to be here.

Doing something in conjunction with the radio show is an interesting idea. I think we could get an extra hour for something special but, Paul, we'll have put our thinking caps on and figure out what we could do.

Some great support going on here - and great ideas re the release. I love the idea of going to Texas, Jeri, but probably won't happen (darn! - would love to see you down there, Jed). Using the radio show is a natural. I'm wondering, is there any way we could get the time slot extended? Rick? Heather? I'm sure we could use it with all you folks calling or emailing in. Whew! This is getting exciting!

By the way, I'm pestering Borealis for a release date. They're talking February right now. I'll keep you all posted.

Let's all go to Texas instead. I hear it's warmer than infinity-below-zero.

From reasonable to mostly insane:
Seriously, do the radio show, have Paul as a guest to talk about the recording in between songs. Have some of the guys on the CD on the show. Perhaps someone who has a laptop could figure out how to get it hooked up at the studio could log into chat, although I'd guess that whoever's in the studio would probably care more about what was going on there.

Rick has enough friends in Toronto for a concert. OR...there's probably not enough time to make or gather materials for a multi-media presentation. I'm thinking slides or videos (I'm sure someone has some interesting photos and tapes somewhere). "Acoustic Workshop: The Movie" - think about it.

Or just do the radio show.

I'm really thrilled that Rick's CD is finished, there were times when I thought it never would be. In fact, if wasn't for Paul Mills it probably wouldn't have been. Paul was gently persistent, he called every few weeks to mention the CD and that he wanted to finish it - many people would have given up months ago but thank goodness Paul kept at it. Thank you Paul.

I don't know what we'll do to celebrate the CD release but keep those ideas coming, it's inspirational.

Steve Latimer, I'd like to buy a mute please. And thanks for getting them made!

That Trishka track is magic, but it's not the only high point.

I honestly don't know why Paul couldn't have made arrangements to include 'Dueling Erhus'. I played the track for the guy who runs the local country store (local store, complete with a 'bullshitters' corner' by the coffee pot & donuts) and he laughed his butt off and made me play the whole CD. Said "You gotta send this to Roland!" (local folk DJ) Whenever someone came in, he'd say "Don't say anything - see if he notices," and not one person commented. I think they were being polite. Anyway, I'm creeping the thread.

Perhaps your agent might update your web page?

( Of Course I think Mick is still befuddled by the last time that happened... Hey we didn't send the pink singing gorilla... we had limits)
I think using Acoustic Workshop with call-in is a great idea. Maybe if folks were up for it there could be regional Mudgathers -- near computers with sound cards -- The big boys release from more than one location maybe folks who prepay could have regional pick up parties ...

I don't think Rick's too travel ready. We could all just show up in Toronto though, unless the border's a problem. Be warned, if you tell them there's an accordion in your car, they'll want to search it. They nailed me coming home - first time they didn't simply ask who I was and where I was going. (Next time, I think I'll answer "Queen of the Denebian Empire, and I'm headed off for holiday on the Grrzleflarb Pleasure Planet. Please don't mess with the power crystals in the space-glove compartment." Either that or, "Didn't your mother ever teach you not to be so nosey?!")

I was thinking 'Acoustic Workshop' on Acoustic Workshop too. You could get them pledge phones out and we could call in CD orders. Cram everybody whose name's on the CD into the studio, and buy 'em some party hats and Chinese food. Invite Tinker up to film the whole darned thing... I might be going overboard just a tad.

...but I CAN play your "C song" on the dischordion!

Sorry Bobert......Scarborough Ontario. South of the Arctic circle and north of Dubya-land. Actually, I have an idea. We could just co-ordinate with one of the Monday night radio shows. Our time is seven pm. Anyway, plenty of time to mull it over, the album won't be released up here for another few weeks.

Thanks again friends.

Rick

Well, danged, Walkin' Eagle, now that's one heck of good idea. A "Grand Opening" kinda release. Hmmmmmm? Where to hold it so we can get as many Catfolk involved. Spring time would be nice.

Yo, Rick. Where do you live? Please don't say like someplace way up in the northern parts of Canada. Lie to me and say, ahhhh, like Pennsylvania 'er better yet Delaware. Yeah, we could rent a community center and have the CD Debut Party of the century... Yeah, we certainly won't have no shortage of musicans... And the food? Geeze o' Pete! Hey, this is doable...

Count me in! Heck, over at Tweeds we got just about every danged Tweezerin lined up to go to Memphis the end of the month fir the IBC )International Blues Competition) so I know we can pull off one heck of a CD party...

Whaddayathinkz?

All good ideas, WE, not sure which would work best, but the easiest would probably be all of us planning to sing one of Rick's songs with him at a certain time. COuld do a PalTalk room, but not everyone has that available and I don't think Rick has audio on his computer. Regardless, I think any and all proceeds, if any, should go to Rick and Heather for expenses.:-)

Willie-O's jest showin' off'...'cause he's close to the Source!:-)

A Virtual Release party doesn't sound very exciting, but for those of us not near Rick we should do something. Remember when Jean Ritchie told us when she would be performing on her dulcimer in Ky for the dedication of her instrument and we all tried to play the songs when she did? Maybe something like that OR maybe catter critters could get together at someone's home near them and we could all call the main bash. Maybe we could charge a cover at said bash and send the donations to Rick's choice of charities. I dunno, just ideas off the top of my head? Kat, Spaw, Sorcha, Kendall, Bobert, HEP me out here!
