Don’t you just hate it!
I’ve been working on several album projects in parallel for a while now. I had all but compiled a retrospective live album from the solo shows over the last three years and would have got it manufactured in November. I had consulted with the good inhabitants of Longdogs as to whether to include intros and chat or not. Even the artwork was mostly prepared.
Last week I played my annual benefit show for the Wren trust down at Okehampton Methodist church. I didn’t intend to record it but had the laptop and one high quality mic in the van so I just put it up with no particular end in mind. I’ve just listened to it and, somehow, its better than two years of careful recording and mixing. I’ll probably end up using most if not all of it.
Ce’st la vie-
