I have eleven left to send and they will be in the mail on Friday, June 25. Sorry about the delay. (I have them addressed at home and will mail them from Edmonton. I can't message the folks directly because after addressing the envelopes I deleted all the addresses, and along with that the names of the folks they're going to.)

Just a notification; no need to post further to this.

Thanks,

BM

So brucie is one who keeps promises. Hurrah to you, brucie. You are a rare one.

This thread made me wonder how many promises have been made here to fellow members and remain unfulfilled. If the Mudcatters are a typical "cross-section" of humanity, I would say, sadly, that the answer would be uncomfortably high.

Not always, G-Spot. Many moons ago I was going to send tapes. However, I couldn't afford to, so I found someone here (where I live) who could transfer the tape to CD. That took a few months--finding him, not the transfer. Then (I am computer illerate) it took me ablout a month to connect with a co-worker who walked me through the steps to burn CDs. When that was finally done, it was at least seven months from the time I promised the tapes. One person called me to task for it; however, there was really nothing I could do about it, despite my best intentions. What I should have done is start a thread explaining the delay. Just didn't think to.

Yet, you are keeping them. We all have things we "should have done" to explain our "whys", but many of us, once things have gone awry, fail to even attempt to keep the promises made.

I am guilty of failing many with my unfulfilled promises, and, though I know many would have understood my reasons, I even failed to offer them.
Sadly, this is epidemic in the world with which I am familiar. And, in being epidemic, it makes it less shameful to be a keeper of one's word.

That is about as open and honest as I will ever get on this forum. (Shields up!)

I concur with others that Brucie's CD is great!

I would also like to say that in less than a year since I found this discussion forum, other 'Catters have noted my interest in specific musical genres and customs and took it upon themselves to send me CDs of their compositions, musical compilations from other CDs, books, and a very hard to find record on children's rhymes. Mind you, these were sent without my asking for them.

I want to take this opportunity to let you all know how much I appreciate you and your gifts.

I feel blessed to consider myself a part of such a caring, talented, interesting, diverse community of folks.

Thanks again!

"four were so-so and the rest were plagiarized"

Someone really said that!!!
Not the brightest button in the button box then eh! Obvously whoever it is that made that comment is sadly lacking in a Musical education..OF ANY KIND and is not a very happy individual.

There is not one note, not one word that ANY Musician can come up with that has not been played or sung before in some format or another.
The skill is arranging the Notes, Words and the Feelings, making them unique to oneself by arrangement and expression.

Bruce Murdoch's work is beyond the need to have to borrow others people's ideas!
His Lyrics hit the Heart and his Musical skills are unquestionable.
In fact Bruce Murdoch's work is in NO NEED of defense whatsoever. It only draws praise from anyone who has the pleasure to hear it.His record as a well known Artists speaks for itself.

To make a comment such as this person did only shows how little this person knows about the Musician they are attacking and Music in general.
I can only think that the person that made these negative comments about Bruce's CD is twisted, envious, talentless in the Musical department and tone deaf, oh and let's not forget 'very cruel' at best.
That, perhaps, is this person's only skill. Cruelty. I feel sorry for someone who's Life is so devoid of Postive and Creative energy that this is how they respond to someone else's art.

Thankfully this wonderful Forum only serves to encourage Musicians. Regardless of the skill level, from Newcomer to Seasoned Performer. THAT is the beauty of the Mudcat in my opinion.
Fortunately unknown guests like this one that only post negative comments are irrelevant, especially in this case.
So take heart any Newcomer reading this Thread. Learn that certain criticism can be a constuctive thing to receive and helps improve one's Music. Most experience Musicians that offer advice would do so with kindness and respect.
Criticism that's only aim is to wound. Is truly irrelevant.

Great CD Mr Murdoch and thank you for your Kindness in sharing your wonderful Music with those that plaqued you to do so for so long.

Look after Yourself.
Respectfully,
J.MacDonald.

He writes such beautiful, melodic, interesting songs. I'm on the first listening of The Plains of Jericho. It is sooooooo goood! thanks so much for sending me one, brucie. Do we have the words up or can I do it?

Wow. Thank you, harpgirl. I am very flattered you like that song. It was my favourite when I first heard the finished album. I hadn't heard the various instruments that were overdubbed after I left Toronto to return to work in Edmonton. We did the basic track with voice, rhythm guitar (both me) and a drummer (to make sure I was keeping the tempo). BTW, the electric guitar player on that cut was 15 years old at the time. Here are the words.

THE PLAINS OF JERICHO

I used to go with a lovely girl, I haven't seen her for a while;
Lines of laughter in her face from a lovely country smile;
Ilyes came from Budapest where the Danube River flow;
I'd trade away my fondest dreams to know, what we left, on the Plains of Jericho.

I met her in the summertime and the crazy days ran wild;
I swear she borrowed innocence from the face of a newborn child;
Prince of Cups in love with her and man I could not let it show;
I'd trade away my fondest dreams to know, what we left, on the Plains of Jericho.

The last time I saw her I was blind from a hopped-up syringe;
It's hard to tell where one hell stops and the other one begins;
The fools we were stood naked, screaming 'Everybody look out below!'
I'd trade away my fondest dreams to know, what we left, on the Plains of Jericho.

FOOL LIKE ME

Scores of prophets growing old;
Please take Elijah the rusted chains that hold
Poor Judas to his misery;
It seems so obvious he needs the sympathy
Of ancient history
And a fool like me.

Lonesome lover lost his bride;
Stopped his heart and so they called it suicide;
Judged by pompous vanity;
I guess they're right, but I have to disagree
'Cause if a fool be he
He's a fool like me.

BRIDGE
And care on the line,
It feels good to talk with a friend of mine.
If you gotta go
I'd like to be
To be the first to know.

Pleasant dreams though twilight falls;
It deserts the prison where the hobo's footsteps call;
Prime ministers of treachery
They locked him up because he had no pedigree
But it matters not says he,
He's a fool like me.

Hey, I wrote your song just yesterday;
And I tore it up because the song got in the way,
Was just a way to let you see;
Another chapter in a clouded mystery
Of vagrant effigies
And a fool like me.
