We're still working on the cover ideas. Paul had a great one, that almost works ... I'm still thinking something along those lines. The website pics are ones my son Matt did.

I'll see if I can get the Beef Brothers up this week, sometime.

The dates for the return trip are set. Oct 26 thru Nov 1.


Now it's off to New Orleans for the Celtic Nations Heritage Festival
and a few nights in O'Flaherty's BALLAD ROOM (Oct 7,8,9 and 10).

Paul and I restart our efforts on MILES FROM HOME this week. I can't wait!

We'll finish the recording part of this project over the next few days - and aim for release in March.

I've been beside myself, waiting to get back to it. It's definately been a form of torture!

Anyway - more soon ...

MILES FROM HOME

We're all but finished with the record. 15 tracks recorded mixed, mastered - artwork complete. Two songs will be altered for the final product - we're replacing their bass tracks, otherwise we're done. Now comes the business preparations for release (March '05).

I love this record. It has been an interesting journey making it - much fun, much work, much joy and, I must admit; much worry ... BUT I am thrilled with the result and I consider myself blessed to have worked with such lovely people on this project ... and to have many of my Mudcat friends involved directly and indirectly.

A very special thank you to Paul and Bev Mills for their kind hospitality, their strong encouragement and their warm friendship. We worked intensely, and shared much good time together; over meals, humor, politics, and family news.

I cannot do him justice with these few words but I have to try ... Paul is simply a genius artist at this music production business - his technology skill, his artistic vision, his diligence and his refined musical ability make him a rare gift to the folk music world. I am surely blessed to have worked these few projects with him, and truly grateful for the opportunity.

So, anyway - for those who continue to ask ...Where's the Beef?

Here ya go!

Thanks all to Mudcatters - Jeri, Martin Gibson, Joanna, Duckboots, just-a-picker, Marion, Peter, who did I miss? Thanks all for visiting during the August trip.

ALSO thanks to Big Mick and Eve Goldberg for adding your strong beautiful voices in harmony to the record.

The thanks goes to you, and to Paul. It is such an honor for me to be allowed to throw a little voice into these very important recordings. I hate to puff up a little brother (you folks know how they act!) but I believe that in the fullness of time these will be important works. It is such a thrill to be included in some small way.

I want to add a hearty second to Jed's observations on Paul and Bev. An important part of the artistic process is that one must feel comfortable. If that is the case, then Millstream is like heaven to the performing artist. One doesn't just feel comfortable there, one feels at home in the caring embrace of these folks. The added plus is that they truly love the music, and enjoy having musicians around. I can scarce find the way to describe sitting in that backyard on a warm summers night, among friends from Toronto and elsewhere, for no other reason than to enjoy one anothers company and music. It is a feeling, an experience, that I would wish for all of you.

I consider myself one very fortunate Michigan boy that Paul will be producing my solo project. This man is simply the best there is.

Jed, I can't wait for this one to come out. I have near played the hide off the others, and I believe this one will be the best one yet.

And I love that picture!! We simply must do a Beef Brothers show someplace....hahahahahaha!!!

All the best,

Mick

Jed, did you really meet Martin Gibson, or are you confused? Did you forget Rick Speyer's (author of great song, "The Ballad of Martin and Gibson") name.

I can't wait for it either (but I must). Bill, down at the "Crossroads" country store wants it, and I also hope it makes it to the local radio stations' folk shows.

Now, about the photo...
Listen, you guys all look great, but Jed, while you're up there, would you please get Paul's facial fuzz more into line with the Beef Bros image? I don't actually know that it's necessary, and I may be being too anal about it. You also ought to get matching black and white cow patterened shirts, and possibly practice those dance steps a bit more.

Just saw Jed off at the airport this afternoon after finishing up mixing, mastering and graphics on "Miles From Home". It's been a thrill to help Jed out with this project. It's a fabulous collection of songs well-written and beautifully performed. A producer just couldn't ask for more! I know you'll all enjoy this CD when it hits the stands.

Jed has become a close friend through the making of these two albums we've done together and I'm proud to be, along with Mick, a fellow Beef Brother (thanks, Rick). As for the facial fuzz, Jeri, it's simply part of the new image...get used to it. And I certainly have to veto the cow patterned shirts! My other brothers may want these but I rather doubt it! I suppose you'll be looking for cow-patterned tights next to show off the improved "dance steps" even more - in your dreams girl! By the way, I'm really enjoying your demo...more later.

Paul

Hot pants, Paul. Tights aren't macho enough.

I'm dying to see what the cover looks like. I figure a nice crossroads in the middle of nowhere, a signpost with old, weathered arrowed with town names pointing in every direction, Jed sitting at the base of said post, playing guitar, and a dead car on a jack with a large Irish guy underneath, changing the tire. I have some pictures you could Photoshop in. Oops. I see you've finished with the graphics. Never mind.

But, Paul said OTHER brothers....and the Cow print shirts would really accent the Beef motif. But I suppose the self effacing image you wish to present prefers something simpler. Kendall style leather hats to swat away pests may do the trick. And well fit jeans are way more imaginative.

Jeri, I think the man doth protest too much, given then number of photo's we both have he seems to enjoy lying under cars.

Jed, I'm really looking forward to this one. Thought of you a few times at Getaway. But selfishly figured finishing this was way more important..

You won't be disappointed Tink. He has one song on this collection that I am absolutely touched by. From what I have heard, this is his best yet.

As I said before, you will want to listen for the song Jed wrote about his relationship with his beloved Mom, as she progressed through Alzheimers. Not only will the beauty of the song strike you, but his "take" on dealing with it will have you pondering the issue even while it isn't playing. Jed and I became friends and kindred spirits fairly quickly. When I hear this song, and ponder the wisdom and healthy way he deals with this, I can only tell you that I am touched deeply. I have said before that Jed puts his soul into every cut. But for me, on each of his CD's, there is that one or two tracks that reveal the wise and gently soul lurking inside this wonderful artist. And so it is on this CD.

Another observation on Paul. One of the reasons why these CD's will, in my estimation, be successful and acclaimed, is because Paul and Jed are attuned to one another in a very special way. When I am in the studio with them, it is a palpable and warm feeling. This is part of Paul's genius. He is able to lock into what you are trying to accomplish, help you clarify your message, and listen with the ears of a seasoned professional. That all by itself makes for world class recording. Factor in his friendship and interest in Jed's work, Jed's amazing wordsmithery, and you have the ingredients for a real treasure of a recording. Makes me very anxious to get started on my own with him. And we will, of course, have the Beef Bros. playing a role there as well.

BTW Tink and Jeri, I am beginning to question how it is that all these cars seem to get maladies that require me sticking my arse up in the air, and crawling around on the ground. Methinks something doth not smell rightly.

All the best,

Mick

Congratulations Jed! I'm sure it's going to be great. My fiddler friend Shawn was saying yesterday that he wants to hear "Con Este Beso" again. I hope your drive home was good.

And if Jeri was right that you confused Rick Speyer with Martin Gibson, that's actually pretty funny...

Love, Marion

Oh, and Mick... I'm not sure Jeri was talking about you when she said "a dead car on a jack with a large Irish guy underneath, changing the tire. ". Last time I saw that, it was Jed under the car.

Re; MILES FROM HOME - just a quick update:

I received the final production master this week of the new CD and have been listening carefully ever since. I love it! I can't wait to get it out - but I'll have to wait until March.

Tom Leighton and Paul Mills and I will be doing the North Texas Irish Festival '05 (NTIF) together in March - to release the album. I am really looking forward to those shows - NTIF '05 will focus on the Irish roots of Bluegrass music, so the release of MILES FROM HOME is timely. Sould be a great time!

I'm sure you'll have a great time celebrating your CD release at the NTIF. Go get 'em!

PoppaGator - Looks like I'll be back your way sometime, too. Been workin' on touring dates in support of the new album and will probably set a date soon around the MS show, and fit New Orleans in around it.
