Blues News From Portsmouth - November 2014 - CD recording and trip to USA


Welcome to November!

Another busy month ahead. 

**New CD Progress.** 

Just before going away (more on that in a minute) I had a very constructive
studio 
recording session, getting down three good tracks and another 3 rehearsal
recordings, 
singing  at volumes that would cause my neighbours to add percussion on the
walls 
and ceilings!  This weekend I mixed the good takes out and so have 4 tracks
towards 
the new CD. 

The name the slide guitar instrumental completion is still running, thanks
for the 
entries so far,  Dan Ogus featured the track on his Scattering the Roots
program and 
you can hear the track on Dan Ogus' listen again facility at 

http://www.mixcloud.com/DanOgus1/scattering-the-roots-28-09-14/

The tune is featured about 16 minutes before the end of the show. Do email
me you 
suggested title to get a free copy of the CD and a mention on the cover.
  
**AmiWest Sacramento, California**

At the end of last month I had the great pleasure to be invited out to
perform at the 
Banquet of the AmiWest computer convention in Sacramento, California. I was
to 
talk about my usage of the Amiga computing platform throughout my music
career 
and play some of my music (live of course) as well as demonstrate the art
package 
that I work on as a hobby. A very unusual way to do a gig but it worked out
quite 
well, I sold all the CDs I took with me and received a couple of online
orders too! Read 
more about it on my blog
http://webplus.broad.ology.org.uk/blog.php?blogid=560 
There is a video of the Banquet performance there too, music starts around
15 
minutes in.
