My New Cd is Finished !!

Postby grady » Mon Nov 26, 2007 12:30 am

As some of you already know, I spen the Thanksgiving Holiday recording my new Cd. This Cd has been a long time coming.
I wanted to do a Cd of Tunes that I really love.
Something to leave for my Son to listen to when he's older and know the kind of Music his Father loved to play.
This Cd is a great example of the tunes you hear when I perform live.

The Track list goes,,

Don't you Throw that Mojo on Me
Peace Train
Hoochie Coochie Man
Little Wing
Boogie Chillen/ Boom Boom Boom Boom
The Stroke
Freakin' at the Freaker's Ball
HillBilly Blues
Armed Assault
Rainy Day (Remix)

Let me add that the CakeWalk Sonar 6 Producer Edition Software is the best Recording Software I've used. It made Mixing & Mastering a piece of cake.
Lots of times you hear a self-produced CD by an Artist and the recording quality is sub-par. Lots of "Hiss" and just lacking clarity.
The sound quality of my new Cd is nothing short of brilliant.
I wouldn't be ashamed to hand this Cd to anybody.
I'm very pleased.

There's Drums & 3 different guitars on this Cd. (Taylor 612CE, Marting JC-16WE Premium, Ibanez Af-95)
If those new Suzuki ProMaster Harmonicas that I ordered hurry up and get here, I'll be adding some Harp to a couple of the tracks.

I'm still debating on how I'm going to package this Cd.
I'll decide in the next couple of days.

Hopefully, those harps will be here soon.

Grady,

Sounds like a great list there. Who did "freaking at the freaker's ball" though? I've never heard of it, but I love the title.

My advice (in case you were wondering 8) ) is to play play play for your son now. My grandfather played harp all his life, I only ever heard him do it once in front of me. Right before he died I got a CD of him playing, but I would have liked more of the real thing.

Although, from the way you talk on here, I really doubt your son is lacking attention from his father.

Congrats on the CD...

Yeh, my Son gets plenty of attention...maybe too much....LOL !!
He wants that "I can play Guitar" by Fisher-Price for Christmas so, I've got to pick that up for him.
He also goes with me when I play Festivals in the Summer & Fall.

Freakin' at the Freaker's Ball was originally done by Dr. Hook
It's a funny little tune.

Hi Grady: Much success! Could you post a clip. Being a home recordist as well, I am always excited to hear what people are getting soundwise. What exactly did you use-mics, preamps,etc? Walter

Thanks Walter.

If anybody knows where I can post a MP3 and not have to worry about Copyright Bullcrap, I'll be glad to post one.

You shouldn't have to worry about copyright issues if you have a license to record/publish/play the songs.

Well, I don't.
I haven't even started that part of the process.
Tracking down Individual publishers and/or Copyright holders takes a lot of time and patience.
I probably won't do that until after the new year.
and no, I'm not going to go thru the Harry Fox agency for $50.00 a song when I know ways to get copyrights much cheaper.

Besides, how many of us here have performed someone else's song in public or on a recording without a Mechanical License ??

Let he who hasn't done it be the first one to cast a stone.

My grandfather was a master harper as well. He died when I was 10... 42 years ago. I heard him play maybe a half dozen times but that's all I have, he was never recorded. Man, I'd meet Legba at the crossroads for a recording of Gramps!

Best of luck with the new CD, Grady.

Grady, what's the deal with the Harry Fox Agency? I've seen you bitch about them before. I'm not really familiar with them at all, just wondering...

They're just too expensive. That's all.
