Congratulations, Art. You have people who love you and your music. AND, you have a 'hit' on your hands. I wish you every success with it. I'll be putting in a request for it at our 'record' store in the Mall.

Mike,

I do remember The Mill. It was Keith Dempster's place. Loud!! But it's good to know someone was listening through the din. Keith put us singers up in his farm house. I fell asleep one night knowing a few bikers were expected in. Next morning there were motorcycles to the horizon all around the place. They had "borrowed" a cadaver table from the University, filled it with charcoal briquettes, covered it wil a chain link fence, and by noon there must've been 200 steaks on to cook. It was a great time that was had by all. A year or two later that farm house of Keith's burnt down---and took his great instrument collection with it. I do hope he is alive, kickin' and doing well.

Art Thieme

I recently gained in fair exchange a copy of Art's CD. I just finished listening to the last cut, Jerry's "Handful of Songs", and I loved every minute of the whole disc. in fact I just hit the Replay button, probably for the first of many times. A fine voice, full of vim, and the instrumental support is perfect, balanced and talented; most important of all, the songs -- the songs are terrific, from all over and all brought together by his impeccable delivery.

Art Thieme is a master.

Great job, great disc, great pleasure, Art.

Amos

Hey, just happened to glance at this thread again, and found out I've had at least one song by a mudcatter, the legendary Jerry R., since long before I knew there was a mudcat. Great album, great song.

Amos, Thanks for your too kind words. I do appreciate 'em a lot. And it's nice to see this old thread resurrected. This now old CD was picked by Scott Alarik and the Boston Globe as one of the top ten folk albums of 1998. (I was honored in spite of the fact that he is an old friend. Sometimes, it's "who ya know".)

And as you know (since I told you on the phone last week) I'm really enjoying your CD as well. That Steve Gillette song about "The River" (was that it's name?) is a great one--as are your own compositions.

All the best,

Art

Thank _you_.

I believe it is formally called "That Song About the River". It does capture a certain something.

Regards,


Amos

I think this was the first Mudcatter CD I ever bought (without MC I'm sure I'd never even heard the name Art Thieme). Then I bought an LP from Jerry R. without even ever having heard a single track by him for the sole reason that I had fallen in love with 'Handful of songs' on Art's CD.

Then I have bought Kendall's Beginner's luck, then the MC Colours/Fruits CDs, next I shall buy one or more Harvey A. for the sole reason that I have fallen in love with 'The song' on the MC CDs.

Mudcat has enriched my LP and CD collection and with the exception of one or two tracks on the whole bunch of MC Colours I've never been disappointed.

Hey folks. I was just over at Waterbug and noticed there are no reviews of this incredible CD. There are some of you whose words carry more weight than mine when it comes to reviews and technical stuff about pickin' etc. So...maybe a few of you might want to copy and paste what you've already written or post something completely new at Waterbug. Out of all of our CDs, we listen to this one more than ever and it always lifts our spirits.

Thanks,

kat

Dear Art:

For us who are certifiable old farts, that isn't just the name of a great CD -it's the bloody truth! Isn't it??
