Subject: MAINLY SCOTS
From: JedMarum
Date: 23 May 06 - 09:39 AM

I have a new CD now available at CDBaby. It's called MAINLY SCOTS - and is a no frills, live recording of my recent favorite Scottish folk style songs. There are samples at the CDBaby page - and the there is a hifi MP3 from the album available for download at Myspace (double click the Annie Laurie track).

Damn, Sins. Jed on Friday, Seamus on Sunday. Why not just book Kendall and I for Saturday and make it a festival? (Jed's idea, but I laughed like hell at the thought of it. I am not sure South Portland would ever be the same.)

All the best,


Mick

Unless we start to do some serious beefing up, I don't think so!

I like the idea of the Mudcat So. Portland Mini-Fest, though!

LOL - I guess you're not beefy enough, Seamus. Of course a crash diet of guinness and chips might fix that!

Portland mini-fest has a ring to it.

Marion - they sold out the frst bunch, but there's more already on the way. They'll be shipping again in a day or two.

You're right, Jed, that didn't take long. CDBaby is stocked up again, and my copy is ordered.

PS I see from your website that you're working on another frilly CD project - any chance you're going to record that in Toronto again?

Never mind, I just looked again and noticed you said you're making the new Civil War record in Texas. So it'll just be the CD release that you're doing in Toronto, then?

the songs are mainly about Scots ... hence the title ...

the Civil War album is also no frills - but does have some multitrack, and may have a guest player or two, haven't decided yet.

have one more surprise up my sleeve, but just can;t say anything yet ...

"Scots" sounds OK to me (and I've lived in Scotland since 1953). Scots don't like being called "Scotch", which, conventional wisdom has it, should be applied only to terriers and whisky.

The thing is Tim, the people who use Scotch wrongly know they are doing so incorrectly, and they think it annoys we Scots. We have more intelligence than to let such tomfoolery wind us up.
I've been insulted by experts, and these rank amateurs don't even touch the surface.

The Civil War CD is aobut half originals. I have aded a few somgs from froms (like Mudcatter Kim C) and a couple from the period.

... never wore a kilt ... never worried about being manly, either .. woldn;t connect the two ;-)

speculation? shouldn;t say 'til I'm ready. don;t want to jinx it.

I got my copy a couple of weeks ago. My favourites are Roddy McCorley and MacPherson's Farewell. It was also nice to see a bit of Canadian content (Angus Fraser). And that line "the cares of tomorrow can wait till this day is done."

I did think that "Return to Loch Moy" was conspicuously absent - hope you haven't retired that song, Jed. Though it is kind of hard to sing because of the range of pitch.

So can you tell us the surprise yet?

Cheers, Marion (who has worn a kilt and never worried about being manly)

Terriers, whisky, mithers, butter, pies, tomatoes, lawyers, ... can you narrow minded scaotchmen not see that scotch is an adjective only refused by scotchmen with chips on their shoudlers like railway sleepers?

Marion - I had half a mind to include "Return to Loch Moy" in this project. BUT I want to rerecord and rearrange the song in a more elaborate fashion then fits the MAINLY SCOTS approach (these are all live recordings, no overdubs, no edits). So I decided to hold that song for another project. So; no it is not retired, thanks for asking!

A bit of Canadian content? I have in mind a Canadian oriented project one day. Lots to choose from and I've collected a few stories for songs too. We'll see.

Can't say about the surprises ... things are still unsettled ... but moving along.
