Blues News from Portsmouth - July 2015 - Finished CD and French Tour!

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:

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:

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 

Still space for last minute additions if someone 
has a venue suggestion. see below for booked dates.
