Cut to rest of band standing on the station, nonchalantly leaning against pillars smoking, or lounging on benches...

Hey guys!

If anyone's interested in the CD it's now available on eBay, Amazon and a lot of other web based retailers!
Just wanted to mention that.. :mrgreen:

It took a while to get it over to the US but now it's there, finally!

A bunch of stringed instruments recorded really well, nice sound on this disc...

Yeah, I've been pretty enthusiastic about many things so far in life but it feels like I've found my home now.
A collector for life I guess, it's been vintage cars and motorcycles in an never ending row over here.. Since 2002 when I decided to let music lead the way it's been mostly instruments, at first as a hobby to find broken guitars and mandolins to repair. Now there's not much time for that as I gig a looot these days with all the travelling involved.. :|

For this CD I really wanted to share the sounds of my old gitfiddles and mando's so I brought many to the studio. Variation's been in focus!

It's really not just an album for any acoustic blues fan, just as much a CD for the die-hard guitar freaks and reso-maniacs around the globe..
Just for that the instruments are recorded with such an amazing sound quality.

That was the idea, hoping I can get that through to people, been trying to mention it here and there and there will be interviews coming up across Europe in specific guitar magazines this summer so I hope that will spread the word on this northern blues singer/slider.

So get a copy, Kiwi!! You might like the sound of it! :D

Hey guys!
Just gotta share this new review with y'all..
From a British music magazine and my review was alongside Slowhand's, it made me a bit surprised and very happy... :mrgreen:

Hope you're having a great summer, I sure do! Even slightly warm weather now and then in northern Sweden..

Just bought a copy on Ebay, much cheaper in NZ than Amazon John.
I hope it's legit and not a pirated copy so I thought I'd better give you the heads up! :)

By the way, congratulations on the fine review :!: :!: :D 8)
