I’m down in the basement today recording what should be my very last vocals for the album. I will be editing and tweaking, refining the mix, and before the family heads off to the Wars of the Roses event up in Concordia, I will have handed off my final mixes to my mastering engineer.
I have seen the album cover. (I think you’re gonna like it.) I have gotten valuable feedback from a small panel of trusted, knowledgable and very honest friends–and even more crucially, my wife, who (as Lucien reminded me) is always right and never wrong.
I’ve selected the CD manufacturer and the online distributor. And the release date is just over a month away. A long standing dream, and two and a half years of work, are almost at an end.
