Subject: RE: New CD: 'Paris' by Sharyn Dimmick
Thanks all. I haven't checked in here for about a month. Nice to see the review.

Near-Luddite that I am it takes me forever to do technical things like send CDs up to CD Baby. I will do it someday, perhaps before 2010 rolls around. I've been debating purchasing online licenses so people can listen to the cover cuts. And, of course, eventually I will set up a website.

What I can do in the meantime if anyone wants to hear my voice or my two most popular songs is I can send said person a free copy of my old cassette recording, "I Am Your Winter Lover." This cassette contains several originals and much traditional material. There are some issues with the mix in spots, but it should serve as a basic demo of my singing and songwriting ability, the kind of arrangements I do, etc. I have a limited supply of these. PM me if you want one with a name and address where I can send it. And let me just say that the new CD is better, done by a very fine engineer.

Will I record more ballads? "Dives and Lazarus" and "Death of Queen Jane" are on the upcoming second CD. Two ballads are about all most people can stand at once, except the diehards like Mr. Rodriguez.

As some of you may know, I broke my left hand in two places last summer and that has affected my facility for playing and thus delayed the second CD. I am also at work on a memoir about my life with cerebral palsy.
