Well, “Love & Heartache” is finished…at least the recording part. I still need to double check the master to be sure there are no glitches and then it’s on to designing the cover, making copies and getting it up on my site. I’ve been getting out of the hard copy business for some time now so I only make 100 or so copies of my albums to sell at gigs and give away to family and friends. When they’re gone they’re gone…but I do post them for downloading free or with a donation at my site and I get them up on CD Baby and through them to iTunes and a host of other e-retailers of music. All of this should happen within a few weeks. I am proud of the album itself. I like the songs and given my shoestring budget I like the sound a lot. I’m always glad to finish my yearly recording project…not only so I can share it but because while I’m recording and working on an album, I pretty much stop working on new stuff so I can focus on the work at hand…once it’s done I can start writing again. Some musicians “get behind” each album they produce…but I like to put them behind me and move on to the next one. One of the upsides of being over the hill. ;~)

*A heads up for next month: Wednesday, October 5th, 2016: “Country-ish Songs”
The only rules of this Hack Circle:
1. You’ve got to use your feet to keep the sack in the air and off the ground. No hands! (10 voluntary pushups if you do)
2. If you miss or otherwise screw up, you can’t say, “I’m Sorry.” (10 voluntary pushups if you do)
3. No serving to yourself. (10 voluntary pushups if you do)
4. No hotdogging. Meaning this is not about how many tricks you can do before the sack hits the ground, and it’s not about working obsessively on tricks. Tricks are fine but in general, we want to keep the hack going as a friendly group and keep everyone involved.
See you at the bandshell, rain or shine. The shell provides shelter from the rain and once a circle gets going, you’ll be plenty warm.
