With only 25 CDs left here in Japan, and 13 left in the states, it appears that "Best Thing to Come," will be due for another release and press before the end of the year. In keeping with our company policy of constant improvement, this new release will feature remixed versions of two favored songs on the album, "Imagine," and "Lovely Day," as well as a slightly altered "My One and Only Love."
I spent a weekend (between jobs) putting these remixes together and have encoded them into the new master CD. The new master is at the plant now and we expect it to be re-pressed and available by mid December.
What are the differences in the remixes?
A few things that were "sticking out" (in my opinion) have been put in a more appropriate place.
A few important things that were understated have been put in a more prominent place.
A more analog type tape compression was used to give a "rounder" and warmer sound, as well as an improved analog to digital conversion process.
Eventually expecting MP3 releases of these remixes but that is not a priority as physical CD sales continue to outstrip downloads by over 20 to 1.
Not going to try to hit you over the head with talk about my CDs, but they're very relaxing, and with the holidays coming up, and the attendant stress, make the perfect present.
The differences in this new version are slight, and may not be noticeable to some, but they are improvements nevertheless, so if you want to be sure to get this latest press of the CD please contact me and order directly because CD Baby and other merchants only have the original version in stock. (No telling how long its going to take for them to sell out.) We are selling out rapidly here in Japan and expect to run out before the end of 2011.
We shipped one to Israel for $15 postpaid, so, that will be the price, regardless of your location. I will pay for postage and ship by airmail...and even sign them if you want, but, of course that will require me breaking the plastic seal.
Sorry but we can only accept personal checks or bank transfers.
The new version of Many Splendid Things is continuing with brisk sales so now that we have two solid products, we will be turning our attention to live sound and video recording of my shows. (Still don't have a single video on Youtube or anywhere else.)
So, right now in the process of getting the pianos tuned and learning the workings of video cameras.
Heartfelt Thanks to all the folks who have supported me and enjoy my music, and best wishes for the holidays and coming new year!
