A Milestone

I can't believe how famous this blog has been.

Today we reached (rather, punched) a milestone: I finished singing vocals on the record (The final song was "The Traveling Onion"), and we managed to finish comping it before both our brains exploded. Or melted. Into delirium I nearly caved. It is a mighty good feeling to be done with this major step in the process. Next week we begin background vocals (far more enjoyable), which I'm hoping to enlist the help of my friends, and then to finish the instrumentation. After that, we mix the album. Then, mastering. Then, off to the duplication plant. Like crossing the sea and finally sighting land. The end is near.

I'd like to ditto what Anonymous davidp said. I would totally drive to Nashville if you'd like a totally unknown singer credited on your fantastic new album. Just let me know, and I'll fuel up the Prizm and head down for a day. :-)

So looking forward to hearing the album!!!
