Welcome to July's News Letter. Picked up a few new subscribers recently so welcome to them too. ** Every Penny Of The Deal CD ** I'm really pleased to say that the CD is finally finished and sent off to the printers, expecting them back in about ten days, give or take. If you want yours hot off the press you can preorder them from my website CD sales page: http://www.broad.ology.org.uk/blues/main/cd.html The last couple of weeks I have feverishly working on the design of the cover and kept a visual blog of the process on my gallery here: http://webplus.broad.ology.org.uk/gallery/thumbgall ery.php?dir=./__cat__0002/__cat__0001/__cat__0001 I'm very pleased with the final design, I'm also very pleased with the music, my best collection of my original solo blues to date. There are 12 tracks on the CD , 7 solo recorded "live in the studio", 3 add Sandy Walker on organ, the first of those "Paper" was recorded in one take, the other two feature some over dubbed electric guitar as well, the 12th bonus track was recorded at L'Eglise Du Barry on last years french tour. ** Name The Slide Guitar Instrumental Compo ** As the CD is now finished I have to thank you for all the entries I received for the competition to name the slide instrumental, a lot of them had animal themes which was interesting, and in the end I chose "Mosquito Hunt" as suggested by Sue Mullan, so many thanks to her for that, and CD will with her as soon as they arrive back from the printers. ** French Tour 2015 ** Plans are now well advanced for my next trip to France with 4 dates starting on the 17th of July. I'll be covering quite a lot of France with this one, with dates in the Languedoc, Charente and Normandy.
