I've heard Cara's new CD and you ain't

Oaklet departed Ireland hotfoot with the wax cylinder of the new CD, came drekly round my gaff, and we put it on the gramophone and had a listen.

He omitted to tell me what it's called, or the names of the tracks, just claiming that it is one hour and six minutes of light entertainment, so we wound up the handle and let her go. One hour and six minutes later, Oak asked what I thought, and I, in all honesty, said 'IT IS REALLY NICE', and as literally tens of readers know, and know well, that is the highest accolade in the local reveiwing system.

I believe that it will be available in October, unless you are resident in the Western Isles, where you can get your ears round it on the wireless a fortnight earlier.

It is truly excellent, and some are saying the best yet. For my money, it is certainly as good as the previous three (yes, three! They don't talk about the Mason's Apron CD, but I like it, and treasure my copy) and they're all brill.

That's good news S K8.

I will wait patiently for November the 5th when CARA appear as Guests at Market Rasen Folk Club, and I am sure it will go with a great big bang.

There last 2 CD's are excellent and of course their tune Abbeyfeale will be appearing on the Charity Lincolnshire CD, coming out shortly.

They are also doing a flying visit floorspot on October the 8th at Market Rasen FC.

I do hope they realise that we have changed venues since they last appeared :-)

The Cara CD might have 4 songs on it - One More Day, traditional and taken from the repertoire of Colin and Karen Thompson, The North Wall, from the repertoire of Dave Evardson from Grimsby, Great Grandfather's Warning by Mike Ryan and the title track Long Forgotten by Oakley and Mike Ryan. Or so I've heard.

The new CD will be available in about a month. All the recording end is completed, leaving Oakley to leaf through lovely photos of that Mike Ryan bloke for inclusion in the CD cover.

The website is to be updae to include the new material but this,like all things technological,will take some time.

When I last saw young Oakley, he told me the price was a mere £57.00 for the CD and a jar of Humber whelks pickled in Guiness. Is this true? Skipjack never said anything about this last Friday, so I shall ask him this Saturday.

I'm well behind the times. Despite numerous requests to Brother Oaklet, I haven't even heard the LAST CD...!

Good luck with sales. I believe they had advance orders for 57 copies.

57 copies by £57 pounds. Now let me see that makes about £3249.

I have it on good authority that the Cara CD, Long Forgotten, has arrived in its final (draft) form. The next step is the production of up to 11 copies to meet consumer demand. It could, therefore, be available in about 10 days.

Oakley has been driven mad by the process.

There is a wonderful photograph of that lovely Mike Ryan's face on the sleeve and drawings of other parts of his body as well.

So Mr Ryan
Does that mean you will have cd's to sell at Market Rasen Folk Club on October the 8th?

By other parts do you mean private?

Thanks, Art - were are on the case. As far as being driven mad (as my good friend MR wrote), I'd like to point out that I am just as sane as I was, before beginning the process of producing the CD "Long Forgotten". Mr Villan, it is my duodenum, MR's sternum and old whatsisface's splendidly florid spleen on the cover.

Can anyone smell onions?
