New Mudcat Members Sampler CDs 2011

Subject: New Mudcat Sampler CDs 2011
From: bradfordian

I am starting a new thread to mark the half way stage, the other becoming a little unwieldy.
This may be seen HERE

Please use THIS thread for the NEW MUDCAT CDs

Phase 1 –contributions--
State of play:-

4 CDs 90% complete
# Waiting for a number of people who have shown interest to send in material (no problem, we have 8 weeks, tho I suspect we may loose 2 or 3 of those)
# Target is to have 6 CDs in 3 x double CD packs (Help me do 2 more CDs in next few weeks)
# Need more support from North America & new world
# Need a few more instrumentals
# Song/Tune submissions close on 31 March
# Material should be public domain, own work, or have copyright owners permission
# PM me any time
# My email addy is:-      barriemathers@ntlworld.com
# For wav files use:-    www.mediafire.com    and mail me the link
# I can let you my my address via PM if you want to send a CD

SONG/TUNE DONORS
I would like to thank all those who have already sent in material. It is good to be able to get a steady stream of input and start setting up the CDs. And thank you those who are actively working on their submissions. I have slots reserved for them.

INTEREST FLAGGED
If anyone has previously shown interest and forgotten, now is a good time to review your options. I would like those people to confirm with me that they are on the job.

NEWCOMERS
I would like to offer this opportunity to all Mudcat members, those who may be a little apprehensive, those who were not around when this project was started, to consider contributing to this project. REMEMBER, IT IS A MUDCAT FUNDRAISER and a great "gathering" of 'catters.

It is highly likely we shall have a CD launch in the UK – plans are under way, more later. Colleagues in the USA are invited to organize similar. Anyone???

3 or 4 people have had to drop out due to illness, and are in the "Mudcat recovery ward" and I wish them all the best.

The Getaway is the first weekend in October. Is that a realistic goal for a launch? If so, I would be happy to be part of the team there.

If anyone else would like to send a song or tune, there is still room available.

We are now approaching the end of phase 1, the submissions period.

There are stil a few folks who have shown interest and not yet sent me anything, so you chaps and chapesses, get your skates on

6 WEEKS Left; right?

You are welcome, Barbara. 50 'catters have made my job a pleasure to do.
But there are a dozen or so who are dragging their feet, including Mr Big! A few are having difficulties getting things together, a few have had to pull out due to illness, but a great deal of progress is being made

I'd like to take this opportunity to put on record my appreciation to all Mudcat's unsung heros, backroom guys and gals,--including you Barbara-- providing their free time in the service of Mudcat.

It's great to be able to use this wonderful resource, and it's great to be part of building up this resource.

OK, 5 weeks now for submissions.

Here's a list of the Mudcat women (in no particular order) you WILL be hearing on the new Mudcat CDs

Mudinyereye           
Noreen            
My guru always said            
Animaterra           
bbc           
hissyfit            
Shoregrass           
Mary Humphries           
Therea Tooley           
Genie        
Janie           
Nutty            
Marylnio           
Noreen            
Shany Annas (Mrs Duck, Morticia)           
Sussex Carole        

There are a few more who I hope to hear from in the next few weeks,

but what other female 'catters SHOULD be on this list?
Remember, this is NOT just for Pros & semi-pros, it's about US, the grass roots members. Other Mudcatters want to hear YOU!

Bearing in mind, you nominate someone, you might need to do a bit of cajoling!

Hi Bradfordian/Barrie,

I read Mudcat on & off, so didn't see this project mentioned until you posted this new thread...

I'm a Yank who's lived in Yorkshire for the last dozen or so years (hence the nickname), so I'm not sure whether I'd qualify to represent North America or not (I definitely still have a US Midwestern accent, but USians seem to think I have a bit of an English accent), but I'm definitely interested (and I'm also definitely female). Shall I PM you about the particulars (if you still have room)?

P.S. Hi Marty! Long time no see... hope you & yours are well!

I will be recording two this Thursday chez Will Fly's.

They also have to pass muster by the composers, so I need to send MP3s ASAP to Graham Pratt and Phyl Lobl respectively, then on to Bradfordian when/if I get the OK.

One English song and one Austrailian song and I am American.

Maeve, you've taken an interest in this project right from the start, you've hoped you might be able to get something together. Well, it seems the rhunes are running against you on this score. It is very unfortunate for all of us that you haven't been able to get a recording done.

I wonder if anyone might have any feasible suggestions to be able to get a recording done. there is 5 weeks in which to achieve the impossible. I saw asign once ---- The impossible done while you wait, -- miracles take a little longer. And then someone else said there is no such word as "CAN'T"

Sounds great, EJ - but it only works with certain platforms:

OS         Windows XP or 2000
(Win98/ME requires latest Internet Explorer 6.0, WinNT is not supported!)
Display         1280 x 1024 recommended, 1024 x 768 minimum
Sound         ASIO-compatible sound card recommended,
but should work with everything else, too

Can just check something please?

On the new CDs, It is the intention to use Mudcat names listed against their song title, as on the previous Mudcat CDs. However, where groups are involved, the group name will be listed.
Real names will be used for composer/copyright credits

If anyone would like to substitute their real name for their Mudcat name on the CD song/tune listings, or where further clarification is needed PLEASE PM ME

Barrie-

I'd just like to put in a supporting plug for Kat Logan. We listened to her last Friday at our local coffeehouse, and she is still full of energy and has a powerful voice. She just needs to get it together and send something in. However, that is not her strongest suit.

Cheerily,

Subject: RE: New Mudcat Members Sampler CDs 2011
From: maeve

There was no nomination involved, as Bradfordian said. Kat didn't know about the project until I told her about it. She spends far more time making music than reading Mudcat. Kat has "it" together, Charley, and she wouldn't think of making a comment like that about anyone.

Bradfordian, I hope you get the information you've requested regarding credits on the Sampler cds.


24 Feb 11 - 11:47 AM (#3101972)
Subject: RE: New Mudcat Members Sampler CDs 2011
From: bradfordian

It is helpful to get all relevant details about songs and performers as soon as possible. ALSO, liner/sleeve notes AND lyrics.
This would save having to chase it up at the last minute.

When finalisation approaches, I WILL contact each performer who has a song/tune on the CDs with current information and seeking confirmation. There are some people who seem to go "walkabout" from time to time, so if you have submited an item for these NEW MUDCAT CDs OR the SEASONAL CD, please keep one eye on this thread.

I have 21 'catters on the pending list -- enough for one CD. I hope to catch about 50% of those, and maybe a few more will come on board to fill up the 5th CD.

Thanks Will. I guess I can live with them. The recordings are nice and clear. It is the thing being recorded that I have reservations about. Why is it one's voice sounds so wrong when recorded?

Anyway, I have sent the Minstrel to Graham Pratt to ask final approval.

And will sent Past Carin to Phyl Lobl for same.

Barrie I will send 3 of the 4 we did today in separate emails and you can select what you like best.

Thanks again Will.

Hi, you could use a track from Mrs Pavane (Dawne Oakley) if you like - it is a traditional song sung unaccompanied in the Welsh language. Max has already used it in his radio program.

The song is already available as an MP3, but I could send a WAV file or even the physical CD which it is on.

mg should also definitely be a contributor, because she writes such great maritime songs.

And I hope MAG will collaborate with me on a song for the non-seasonal one.

A most happy birthday, Barrie! Mine's on the 20th & Spring cannot come too early this year! This past week, we weathered an ice storm with many fallen branches & no electricity for more than 2 days. Photos on my flickr page:

Thanks for all your good wishes fellow 'catters including you Barbara. A double event for you, as you also mark the vernal equinox!

I did TWO choir gigs today (different choirs), so no party today, but I'll make up for that tomorrow (Sunday) [Well I did party last weekend with my sis & bro-- as well as supporting the Ingleton FF fundraiser]

It's all go---- "What is this world if full of care, we have no time to stand or stare........"

I am thankful to be able to do that; that I woke up this morning, that the world around me was ticking over alright amidst the natural and man made turmoil of the wider world. And to think we moan about the price of fuel!

I am pleased with the progress of the project. I am gradually reigning in the stragglers.
However, there is one significant straggler still to net though! I was just wondering if I should learn how to play chess to catch this fish.

Cheers, Barrie

I just uploaded my 2 contributions and emailed you links, Bradfordian!

I don't expect I'm the straggling fish you're speaking of hauling in, as I don't play chess, but I do apologize for the time it took. I really have been ill! But ill or not, I'm hooked now .... save the net for the really big fish.

Cheers,
Claire

Both songs harvested, thanks claireBear. The grey cells are in denial, took me 3 mins to place the tune for Sweet Perfection, but I know you guys will recognise it instantly when you hear it on the CDs come next Christmas.

Anyone who has not yet sent in their contributions are among the "straggling" fish but there's still hope for some because we are still within the time frame. Let me see now......so that's another

12 days to go



The leader of the pack, sorry, shoal, is still being coy though!

Where you'll find to your taste, and whatever you wish
But for Mudcat their recipe is most bizarre
By burning their blue plates they serve the best dish

By age, by beauty, by intrinsic value, by geography, by topic, by key, or alpha?

Inquiring minds have sleepless nights!

How about sorting them in alphabetical order: if it's a song, under 'S' for song, if it's a tune under 'T' for tune ;)

100 songs... KEWL! Can't wait to get mine and a few more copies for family/friends.

Organizing them. I had not even thought of that Mr. Noble. Now you have given my sleepless nights another thing to ponder.

How about in the chronological (or reverse) order they arrived?

No decision or research to do.

Bradfordian,

Have sent you a pm & an e-mail with the info below (also containing my contact details). Hope to hear back from you soon...

Sorry to leave it so late to get back to you; have been trying to get one of my newer songs recorded, but have ended up falling back on an older one. So... can you cope with an m4a file, or would it be better if I converted it to an mp3 before sending it to you?

As for whether to use my Mudcat nick or my real name, is it a problem to use both? Also, I have a couple of friends accompanying me. I assume their names can be included somewhere, yes?

Finally, many, MANY thanks for undertaking this project! I know it must take an absolutely HUGE amount of time and energy -- no doubt even more than I (or most folks) would imagine. You have my admiration as well as my gratitude.

Cheers,

Vikki Appleton Fielden

This entire thing was so convoluted... First of all, I really have no idea if my song is gonna be on this thing 'er not but...

...it all started with GUEST 999 (Brucie) askin' me to do a little slide work on one of his songs and then between my lack of technical skills, some issues with the recording and me having my studio guy record a quickie, one-taker while I was down doing the work on brucie's song things got messed up... I may never know what happened but seems that my song made it to the UK and brucie's didn't???

Don't ask me... I'm just a geetar picker...

But, if brucie's song, which BTW was/is a killer with the two of us, didn't make it then, hey, if mine does then the two hour trip to my recording guy's house (in the friggin' snow) won't have been a complete waste...
