Normally I don't start threads, just kill them, but I can't contain myself tonight. My brother Russ's group Mandolirium just got an incredible review for their new CD, Unstrung Heroes at Mandolin Cafe. The new release is currently winging its way to Max and hopefully will be able to be heard on Mudcat Radio in the next week or so.

Russ may not be technically a Mudcat member but as my "little brother" he's one of us by proxy by cracky!

Metchosin, I listened to the MP3 of the hungarian tune you sent me from this CD, and LOVED it.

Thanks Alice and Spaw, I'll pass the kudos on to Russ.

And............ if people buy the CD......... not only will they be able to hear it, they will be able to see the picture on the back!

Geez, didn't take me too long, eh?!! Just got mine, thanks, Mets, check is on its way.

What can I say?

WoW-O-WoW!!!
Rog & I both LOVE it!!

Talk about nimble fingers and what a neat eclectic mix of tunes, just right and wow, I can't believe how fast some of those tunes get going!!

Wonderful, Mets, thanks a bunch!!

Phoaks, if you haven't bought this one, yet, I highly recommend it, in case you couldn't tell!

As of this morning, the Mandolirium finally has a website up and running with soundbites and other good stuff. If you visit you can even pet my "nephew" Butch the Wonderdog!

Mudcatters you have to hear this Cd. This IS the MOST enchanting and exciting mandolin music I have ever heard! Hang on though, You may never stop dancing.

Mets, that is a great and very elegant website. I love the design! BUT, I didn't see Butch anywhere...where is he, how did I miss him?!

And, Rog and I echo wdyat...this is a terrific band and well worth buying their CD!

Go to the contact link kat, you have to pet Butch to send the band an email. He's also sitting beside my brother in one of the pics in the photo gallery. Not too many dogs have fiddle tunes written in their honour, he was one of the chosen few in March of the Dogs by the Walter Bodega Band.

kat, band member Rick Van Krugel is not only an extraordinary musician, he also doesn't suck as a web page designer either.

Can't find the review at the Mandolin Cafe anymore, but it has been awhile. The samples still work at Mandolirium's website though. I'm glad to hear you are still getting enjoyment from the CD, kat.
