Subject: Rick's Album a Go again. (almost cetain)
From: Rick Fielding
Date: 14 Dec 03 - 12:16 PM

As virtually all of you know, cancer has slowed me down quite a bit over the last year.....and other than the general bummer of being in a pretty uncurable situation, one of the real drags for me was that a number of cuts I recorded with some pretty fine musicians (Tony Trischka, for example) have just been sitting in the can.

I can't really play to my former level at all anymore 'cuz the co-ordination just ain't there, but thanks to Mudcatter Paul Mills (who apart from being Stan Rogers' producer and best friend, and has a CV a mile long) we're gonna go for it.

We've hunted down some older recordings to fill out the nine that are finished.......and I'll keep you posted. Even got some Mudcatters in the can (so to speak) like Pam Swan, Mick Lane and Jed Marum!

Thanks for being the Mudcat......and so long to Winter's Wages....ain't it a bitch when reality keeps messing with our community?

Rick

Hey Rick,

That's great news. Now we can play the whole album, instead of putting the two cuts we have on perpetual replay! Good to see you pop up here. Very Happy Holidays to you and Heather. With love from the West Coast Division of Lane, Fielding, Patterson and Swan, Layabouts for Hire.

All the best. Jeri is of course right; whatever you feel up to doing, I know there are plenty of musicians who would be thrilled to work alongside you.

Rick,

Go for it. That's just great. And ain't it true that these maladys seem to hit us musicians right where we live. It is ;-) sort of like when a pretty girlfriend decides to pick up and split town. In that way "A Pretty Girl Is Like A Malady" (I guess...... ;-)

Sorry, couldn't resist.

Make it happen. And isn't the support of folk fans simply the absolute best !!! They say around here that the Cub fans are the best. But you and I know it's the folk fans who top off that mountain.

Onward.

Like Mick, nothing around here has made me happier.......well, except maybe whoever sent me the Penile Enlargement Pump. It doesn't seem to work but it's fun to use..............Wanna' borrow it? It'll take your mind off a lot of other things......sorta' like Art's humor.

Anyway.......What the hell was this thread about?..............Oh yeah, the album..........This one has always sounded like a great idea and I'm glad you're going to finish it!   A great idea like Bean Soup and Cornbread on a cold, snowy day...........Come to think of it, we had Bean Soup and Cornbread when it was snowing the other day and perhaps I should have used a different analogy. I mean the Bean Soup tasted great but 4 or 5 hours later after 4 of us had ingested the stuff and being in a closed house....the atmosphere got kinda' gamey.

Back to the album......Actually it isn't me that needs to get back to it, it's you.....so do it! Keep us posted so we know when to order! And speaking of posted, what the hell is it with your phone....or do I have the wrong number? A completely likely possibility as my 'puter flopped on me and I'm trying to reassemble whatever I had......This is a lot like trying to reassemble any mind I once had. Maybe the needed material is gone forever.

Love to Heather. She's the real reason I was calling because I've always had a lot more fun talking to her than to you. Karen sends her best as well to you both.

Thanks for the kind words. Paul just brought the almost finished mixes around today, and they seem ok. I may preview a few of the songs on my radio show tonight. Hi Glen.


John: Trischka and I played an arrangement I worked up of the old Les Paul tune "Little Rock Getaway". He's a hell of a player......as well as being a nice guy....even washed dishes after dinner. Heather was amazed!!

When will it be done? Not too long I hope. Still gotta do the notes and cover.

Please credit Joe Sullivan, an older jazz piano player, with "Little Rock Getaway". He got very little reward for a lifetime of playing fine music.

"Little Rock Getaway"? I thought that was a Bill Clinton tune...
Les Paul? Joe Sullivan? Who knows?

Seriously, that I want to hear. Y'know, Amos Garrett lifted the main lick from that tune and used it for the B part of his rendition of Wildwood Flower--sounds real nice that way. (Can't remember how it goes, just that I asked him how he did that with Wildwood Flower and that's what he told me)...

Well,I went to the studio for the first time in two years to try and finish this off, and it was quite an effort.....just no real energy. Played some dulcimer and sang a back up part. God bless Paul Mills for his great encouragement (not to mention fine playing and production. We're trying to waste no time (obviously) and the title is "Tradition", cuz this is not modern music.

We'll let you know about how to get it in a few weeks....still gotta do the cover and notes but so far I like it. It's got quite abit of pickin (done last year when I could still pick) and some older ballads.

JUst leave your name (I'll save this thread) and we'll work it out.

Thanks Mudcat.

Love

Rick

It's been quite a while since I've posted to the Mudcat but the recent work with Rick has led me to this thread. It has reminded me what a wonderful community this is. I should check in more often!

I just delivered the master and final artwork for the CD to Borealis this afternoon. Rick and I are both really pleased with the final result. Speaking for myself, I think that you'll find that this is "pure Fielding" - straight ahead and honest. Lot's of hot picking, great energy and a wonderful collection of old and old-sounding songs. The title we settled on is "Acoustic Workshop" which is also the name of Rick's radio show (as most of you know).

It was real important to me that this project get done and I'm so glad that Rick agreed and was able to put the effort in. Thanks, buddy!

I'll let you all know when a release date is set.

Cheers,

Paul Mills

G'day Rick,

Will the CD be available through Mudcat-linked channels? I want one, no matter how, but when I go through the angst of squeezing Aussie dollars halfway round the world through the ether, I like to pick up a few items all in one hit (like some more recent Art Thieme CDs, for starters!) and that keeps down the packing/mailing costs as well.

(I'll just get back to pencilling in the rest of my wish list!)

A Virtual Release party doesn't sound very exciting, but for those of us not near Rick we should do something. Remember when Jean Ritchie told us when she would be performing on her dulcimer in Ky for the dedication of her instrument and we all tried to play the songs when she did? Maybe something like that OR maybe catter critters could get together at someone's home near them and we could all call the main bash. Maybe we could charge a cover at said bash and send the donations to Rick's choice of charities. I dunno, just ideas off the top of my head? Kat, Spaw, Sorcha, Kendall, Bobert, HEP me out here!

All good ideas, WE, not sure which would work best, but the easiest would probably be all of us planning to sing one of Rick's songs with him at a certain time. COuld do a PalTalk room, but not everyone has that available and I don't think Rick has audio on his computer. Regardless, I think any and all proceeds, if any, should go to Rick and Heather for expenses.:-)

Yo, Rick. Where do you live? Please don't say like someplace way up in the northern parts of Canada. Lie to me and say, ahhhh, like Pennsylvania 'er better yet Delaware.

I don't think Rick's too travel ready. We could all just show up in Toronto though, unless the border's a problem. Be warned, if you tell them there's an accordion in your car, they'll want to search it. They nailed me coming home - first time they didn't simply ask who I was and where I was going. (Next time, I think I'll answer "Queen of the Denebian Empire, and I'm headed off for holiday on the Grrzleflarb Pleasure Planet.

Steve Latimer, I'd like to buy a mute please. And thanks for getting them made!

That Trishka track is magic, but it's not the only high point.

I honestly don't know why Paul couldn't have made arrangements to include 'Dueling Erhus'. I played the track for the guy who runs the local country store (local store, complete with a 'bullshitters' corner' by the coffee pot & donuts) and he laughed his butt off and made me play the whole CD. Said "You gotta send this to Roland!" (local folk DJ) Whenever someone came in, he'd say "Don't say anything - see if he notices," and not one person commented. I think they were being polite. Anyway, I'm creeping the thread.

Perhaps your agent might update your web page?

Paul was gently persistent, he called every few weeks to mention the CD and that he wanted to finish it - many people would have given up months ago but thank goodness Paul kept at it. Thank you Paul.

Let's all go to Texas instead. I hear it's warmer than infinity-below-zero.

From reasonable to mostly insane:
Seriously, do the radio show, have Paul as a guest to talk about the recording in between songs. Have some of the guys on the CD on the show. Perhaps someone who has a laptop could figure out how to get it hooked up at the studio could log into chat, although I'd guess that whoever's in the studio would probably care more about what was going on there.

Rick has enough friends in Toronto for a concert. OR...there's probably not enough time to make or gather materials for a multi-media presentation. I'm thinking slides or videos (I'm sure someone has some interesting photos and tapes somewhere). "Acoustic Workshop: The Movie" - think about it.

Or just do the radio show.

The temperature is going down, down, down and it's going to be really cold for the next few days - so, yes, I think we'd favour San Diego or Texas but it'll have to be here.

Doing something in conjunction with the radio show is an interesting idea. I think we could get an extra hour for something special but, Paul, we'll have put our thinking caps on and figure out what we could do.

OK folks, as much as we'd all like to head south, it looks like the the launch will be in snowy Toronto. There seems to be a concensus about having the radio show as the focus and that makes sense. I'd like to investigate perhaps having a remote broadcast beamed to the station from a location which has a bit more room for drop-in guests and the odd performer. (Maybe the Borealis office?) My suspicion is that the CIUT "attic" studios mught be a bit cramped for this particular occasion. Heather, how can I find out about CIUT's mobile options?

The final master and graphics made the Borealis office this morning. Yippee!!

Paul

Howdy folks,

We're sending the master and artwork off to the presses this week and I'll inform this forum as to when the little silver discs arrive.
A remote broadcast from the Borealis office sounds like a fine idea for a launch party. We have the room to set up a remote and for that matter a couple of in house pickers.
Cheers to all.

Hi there, thought I'd let you know what's happening with the Rick CD release. I got a call from Paul Mills this morning and he told me that the CD should be ready in two or three weeks, which is really fast work by Borealis and great news.

I guess all you folks who said you wanted to be first on your block to have "Acoustic Workshop could send me a PM and I'll start addressing envelopes and sticking stamps.

It looks like there will be a virtual release CD party at the Borealis Records offices, with a remote broadcast from Acoustic Workshop, CIUT FM, 89.5. We'll be able to take phone calls and get e-mails from listeners so it'll be interactive, but you'll have to supply your own wine and cheese and blow up your own balloons.

Many thanks to Borealis (Bill, Grit and Linda) for all the extra effort they've taken to get this CD out so quickly, and more thanks to Paul, just because.

Heather

Heather, how much is it for the CD & shipping? If you don't know the CAD to USD, there's a currency converter here, but it changes constantly, and it looks like the CAD is a bit lower today than it's been.

Those of us who already know where you live can just send a check, eh? But I'd advise people to PM Duckboots so she knows how many CDs she'll need to send.

I also thank Paul Mills and Borealis as I'm very glad to see this musical bud bloom. Would they like to be invaded by a few Yankees? (Those from south of the border, not New Englanders, north-of-the-Mason-Dixoners or members of the NY baseball team.)

My schedule is clear and I need but the date and I am on my way. I can't wait to hear this CD.

Paul and Bev Mills, before they did this, were considered by me to be two of the finest folks I have met. This act of friendship simply confirms what I knew already. Paul... Bev... I am honored to know you, and I thank you for what you have done here. I will see you soon, and take you up on that cuppa.

All the best,

Mick

Rick and Heather,
Just jumped on this thread and got the GREAT news. Count me in for a purchase, and know that I'll be blowing up balloons, wearing my party hat, and generally carrying on in support of the virtual release party that goes along with it. Hooray for you Rick. Hooray for Heather for being all you are. And Hooray for Paul, who I've never met but deeply admire, for helping make it happen on the fast track. A piece of truly good news, this!
Kathy

I'm very excited about the way this release idea has come together. All of the Mudcatters notions starting from some kind of "virtual release" party through to being able to purchase CDs so that Rick and Heather get the most possible out of it have all come to fruition.

The release built around the radio show is a perfect idea because it connects this whole community to celebrate Rick's new CD with him no matter where you are. We're doing it at the Borealis office because it's big enough for folks to drop in, say "Hi" and pick a few tunes if they would like to. The CIUT studio is a tad too small for this. And speaking of CIUT, they are fully on the bandwagon and supplying all the support they can for this effort. Big thanks!!

The plans at the moment are this:

The virtual release party will take place on February 16th. It will be an extended broadcast of "Acoustic Workshop" from 7PM 'til 9PM EST. This will be streamed to the internet as usual. We will of course be featuring the CD, but there will also be performances by friends who will drop in.

There will be a toll-free number for people to call in and we'll be able to receive emails and read them on air. You'll also be able to order CDs during the broadcast through the phone or email and charge it to Visa or Mastercard if you'd like. You should know that Borealis has agreed that in doing this you'll be purchasing the CDs from Rick and Heather - that means they'll be getting the lion's share of the proceeds. It would be nice if more record companies were this fair-minded!

We'll be letting you know the number and email addresses as soon as they're settled on. We'll also let you know the coordinates for the Borealis office in case you'll be able to be in Toronto and attend.

Stay tuned for further details!

Cheers,

Paul

Is there anyone who doesn't understand why I consider myself to be an adopted Canadian? You don't see this kind of love and appreciation just anyplace. Paul, please extend my thanks to the folks at Borealis for the way they are handling this. I will be there, and I can't wait. Now, let's get on with the party and celebrate the release of another great Fielding CD.

HEY STEVE LATIMER....... AM I FINALLY GOING TO GET TO MEET YOU?????

All the best,

Mick

I wish I could be there. I don't expect to be able to tune in either, since I'm travelling at that time - but I'm sure I can get to a phone to say hello and pass on best wishes.

Well, its official-- my flight is booked and I just got off the phone with Mick-- I'm on my way to Toronto for the release! Can't wait to see Rick, Heather, Peter T., Paul, Mick and all the gang at Borealis, and to celebrate this wonderful occasion with you guys.

I'm very lucky to have been a tiny little part of this album, it was a great experience and I can't wait to hear the finished product.

MaryLou says I better pack a heavy coat-- not sure what this Californee girl's gonna do in Tronna in February... but we'll find out on Feb 16th!

cheers & shivers,
pj
