One Last Blast!

Well the time is finally here! I will be mastering 11 of the 12 songs on Tuesday. The 12th song, “Forgotten” is a very emotional song shared through the eyes of someone stricken by Alzheimer’s disease. It is very effective as just an acoustic guitar vocal but I think I need to go the extra mile on this one. Next week, there will be a small orchestral arrangement recorded and I felt this was worth waiting for. This will just delay the CD a week or two. I just now gave the “head phone” listen to the entire record and I must say, I got very emotional just being able to hear a year’s worth of work and feeling it was the very best I could do, not to mention I think it sounds frickin’ great! I want to thank all of you who have been so supportive helping make this become a reality. At 59, I don’t know how many more years the fires will burn inside of me, but I am so happy that I was able to write and record such a satisfying piece of work. If you haven’t pre-bought the CD yet, this will be your last chance to be rewarded for your support. I am sending every pre-buyer the entire album as a download weeks before the CD will be ready. I can’t wait to get your reaction after your first listen!
