Subject: Mudcat Liner Notes
From: Tweed
Date: 28 Dec 02 - 09:26 PM

There was a request put out from Mz. Barbara Shaw regarding some liner notes needing to be placed over on the CD Sampler OrderInfo Page and I'm happy to announce that Amos' fine words as well as Mr. Dick Greenhouse' concise history of the Digital Tradition are now available for perusal *Right Here*.
A Good idea Couzin Barb (the Shaw people is perdy danged smart you know), Great and well drawn words Dick and Amos, and thanks MichaelR for getting them over to Tweedtowers Industries so they could get printed on the cyber flyers.

Keep sending out the info to those radio stations. We have more stuff to show 'em now and our five minutes of fame is waitin. I suppose if this tactic doesn't work, we can always hit the Mall parkin' lots and stick them to windshields ...or windscreens...whichever side of the pond you may be on.

Yerz,
Tweed

Great synopsis, Amos.

I'm wondering if we can put together separate liner notes here in the forum for each CD, complete with whatever short blurbs folks want to use for their songs and lyrics, if they choose to submit them. That way people could print their own detailed liner notes for each CD if they choose to.

Yeah, I think someone should take the time to condense each of those threads into a set of liner notes for hte disk. Susan's idea really worked well, but there was some persiflage added in as usual.

Yeah, Amos and Susan, I know there are some liner notes in those threads. But, as you alluded to, Amos, they're kind of scattered. Also, I'm not sure they're complete.

It would be nice to have them in a form such that folks could just copy and paste, so we wouldn't all have to 'invent the wheel', so to speak, by way of organizing them, removing extraneous comments, and otherwise editing them.

I agree, Genie. It seems the intended liner note threads became a free-for-all. Could we not have a thread for each CD with nothing but lyrics / comments for each song on the CD?

Hey Genie, I've got a great idea! Why don't you volunteer for the job of putting the liner notes together. Then you can find out for yourself that 'no good deed goes unpunished' -- and have fun dealing with all the whiney titty babies that will be nipping at your ankles, whinging about how you could have done a better job of this or that, but then out of the other corner of their mouths saying that they're not really complaining . . .

All the best, Áine

Genie;
I know not how you'll use 'persifalginous'
In a poem or even a song.
But to rhyme it you need 'oleaginous' (oily to thee & me)
And the verses will need to be long!

Well, I'll be glad to put together the liner notes for the Strawberry CD first, and then maybe if no one else takes on the others, I'll do that.

What I have in mind is something that probably won't take more than an hour or so, once I have everyone's submissions for the Strawberry CD. (Additions and corrections can be made to the existing thread.) But one person putting in an hour or so in the formatting makes more sense than hundred of people each doing that same hour's labor.

Of course, I wanted to get really fancy, I could make it take longer, but all I want to do is have people's blurbs and lyrics in proper sequential order, error-free if possible, and without the
"Subject: Mudcat CD/Strawberry" and "Post - Top - Forum Home - Printer Friendly - Translate," date, etc. between each entry.

Just let me know if it's my assignment, so we won't have duplication of effort.

One thing I learned when editing some of my Thoughts for the Day for non-Mudcat readers is to write more informatively for those people who may not even use the Internet and/or haven't a clue as to what Mudcat is; using non-Internet terminology for clearer understanding.

I think the CD notes are fine, but for non-Mudcatters, they could be more informative. That said, the whole thing was an obvious Herculean effort and is quite impressive.

fwiw,

Tweed's site looks great with the order information and text from the CD insert. That's exactly what I had in mind to explain the project to people who may be interested, such as radio stations and music publications. Just give them that link. Thanks, Tweed!

The liner notes about the individual tracks, however, would require input from each performer and could probably include background and lyrics for each track. There was quite a bit already posted on the individual threads about each cd, but maybe that should be a permathread or a link off a mudcat sampler permathread.

And since this is all about supporting mudcat, maybe it should be on the "record shop" page that sells cds.

A suggestion, to make the job of doing liner notes for the other four CDs easier:

If each contributor could submit the following info in this sequence, it would make the editor's job a lot easier:*

Song Title

Composer(s)' full name and copyright date (use "©" if possible)

Artists:
     name of each artist, followed by the instrument(s) and/or vocal part(s) they provided
 
    background info and comments of the composer(s) and/or performer(s)
 
    link(s) to profile(s) and photo(s) in Member Photos and Info.

lyrics  (or link to lyrics in DT, forum, or website)

It looks like I may have unwittingly "volunteered" to do the liner notes for all five CDs.

I'm open to that if y'all will each post your liner notes as described in the post immediately above in the respective threads for the CDs.

To that end, I'm going to start separate threads for each CD, with those instructions.

If everyone submits the information organized like that, the task of doing the liner notes will be cut in half (by spreading the load).

Subject: Lyr Req: mudcat cd lyrics
From: bradfordian
Date: 11 Jan 03 - 03:22 PM

The more we play these brilliant mudcat cds, the more we want to learn and sing some of the songs. Of course we could listen to them and get the words that way, but as has just been demonstrated you get the odd mis-heard word/phrase. So I was wondering if folks wanted a focal point to publish lyrics of the songs on the blue plate specials. Many of course are already in the DT, some are instrumentals, some authors may choose not to publish here. Harvey Andrews has just graciously put the words for his FROM THE HEART (Plum) in a thread, and I thought it would be great to have them all in one place (that is for those who want to )There are 4 or 5 from each Cd that I would like the words for. There are many of the newer ones that are well worthy of perpetuating (with the authors creditation of course). It could also be used for updates and corrections. Also if words are available elsewhere, then links could be supplied. Just a thought, how about it folks? (Or am I too late and has this already been thought about?)

I think I'm gonna PM the contributors individually and send them each a link to my recently started "liner notes" threads. Several folks have posted their lyrics and other liner notes, but I think some folks have missed those threads.

I'd prefer to get the lyrics from the mouths of the "horses," themselves,* rather than have other folks transcribe them from listening, since that often results in mondegreens. If the "horses" won't talk, of course, we'll have to make do.

I'll go ahead and "gang-PM" those folks this afternoon, since I'm in a situation where I can delude myself into thinking I have the time. ;-D

Just in case you haven't been following the individual liner notes Permathreads, if you have a song on one of the 5 Mudcat CDs and have not posted the lyrics yet, please PM them to me and I will add them to the appropriate CD liner notes.

If you're one of those sweethearts like Ebbie who took the initiative in transcribing the lyrics from hearing the CDs, you can also help by checking the liner notes Permathreads and PM-ing me any lyrics you have that are not already posted in those threads.

If the lyrics are exactly as in the DT or posted in another thread, all we need is a link to them and a note saying they are the same.

I hope we can get a good set of printable liner notes by mid February.

Thanks,

Genie

I think maybe we didn't have crosslinking when this thread was started. Now all the liner notes threads are neatly crosslinked at the top of this thread.


But here's an index:

Blue Bottle Special (2003)

Is there somebody who is handling sales of these CDs, or do we need to set up a new system? Most of the people who were involved in the production of these CDs are no longer with us. I would think the best thing to do would be to distribute all the CDs together on a flash drive or SD chip. SD chips are much easier to mail, so that's what I would prefer.
Does anyone have experience with mailing SD chips overseas? Can I just tape them to an index card, slip them into an envelope, and send as a letter?
