I hope the songs on this CD are very much like the ones on "A Painter Passing Through".

DMD: If the three preview tracks are indicative of the full album, I think you'll be very happy then!

Well, I've listened to the :30 previews and I have to say Inspiration Lady is my favorite of the three. Did anybody else hear a bit of the progression from Pachelbel's Canon D in it (the classical music used a few years ago in the GE light bulb ad)?

I just got the songs this morning. You all scared me about using a dial-up so I asked my boss who has a cable modem at home to get them for me. He said that setting up an account, finding the songs and burning the CD took about 10 minutes.
Even using the crummy little speaker on my PC they sound great. Can't wait to hear 'em in the good system in the pick-up on the way home.

Bill

(he just said it was more like 20 minutes,LOL)

He is still underestimating, unless his PC boots a lot faster than mine. There's a 9+meg download of the software, the install process itself, a reboot, then start Itunes, sign up (with credit card, address, etc), then buy the songs (at which point they are downloaded), then burn the CD. If he did all that in 30 minutes (meaning he found everything instantly), I am very impressed!

Played 'em in the truck, then played 'em on the surround sound system. They sound better each time around - this should be a very nice CD when it gets here.

Val,
I had him well briefed on what he was looking for and he said that when the CD started copying he went off to do something else (multi-tasking?) and yes I confirmed that he did have to restart his PC. But we run a fairly complex data center, including rapid recovery of systems, for our living 24/7/365. So we're used to moving fast around large computers, LOL. But it could be he was so enchanted by the tunes that he lost track of time.

We'd all like to think that's the case, Bill! Remember: Newbie Lightheads are born one tune at a time!

Does Gord have full producer credit on this album...does anyone know?

quote:Originally posted by Jenney:
My understanding is that Rick Haynes is listed as co producer on Harmony.

According to the Grant Avenue Studio web site ( www.grantavenuestudio.com ), Harmony is one of the CDs Bob Doidge produced, so my guess is that the credits will read Bob Doidge and Rick Haynes. According to what Jenney and others have said, Rick was the "man on the scene" when all the band tracks were recorded because Gord was still laid up. Whether Gord will also have a producer credit, I don't know. (APPT production credits went to Bob and Gord), but since he wasn't physically in the studio during recording (except for his tracks of course), he may not take a producer credit (which I assume is his decision to make either way).

The engineers were (again according to the Grant Avenue site) Paul Riemens and Amy King (I presume in that order). Cathy was lucky enough to record up there, and both she and I can attest to the brilliance of all the people at Grant Avenue. APPT went down to Nashville for some post production; Harmony was done entirely at Grant Avenue. The sound of this new CD - based on those three songs we have heard - is just perfect; in my opinion far better than either of the last two albums at least.

Val: I have to agree! I have now given each of the preview tracks repeated listens, and I am very impressed with the production quality. In recent years the combination of Gord's aging vocal quality and less-than-top notch production have contributed to some disappointment. The quality of these tracks appears to be much better and, frankly, I think Gord's vocals sound much stronger than in the recent past. I'm anxious now for the full CD's release.

Computers suck. After a real pain in the neck trying to get my cable modem to work with my laptop, because my desktop has Windows 98 and can't download iTunes, it finally worked but now I'm in a real tight spot.

I paid for and downloaded all 3 songs. Great! Took all of 5 seconds for the download. So now I figure I will burn them to a CD because my laptop is one of those new compact super duper slim jobbies with a supercalifragilelistic crappy speaker and sounds like hell. New songs sound good, but not getting the full effect with this little speaker. I install my drivers for my CD burner only to find out it's old and won't work with Windows XP Pro. Thanks Bill Gates. You've screwed me again. By the way, thanks for all the bum directions with your Microsoft Streets and Trips. It's really fun to turn south when I need to go north 39 miles!!

Now I get the idea I will log onto my email and send them to myself, hook the cable line back up to my desktop (re-booting each time to boot) and get the files that way so I can burn them. Only two sent and the 3rd got rejected because they took up all my space. In the meantime, while sending them from my laptop, I opened up my music converter on the laptop because I noticed these are M4P files! My music converter won't open that kind of file because it doesn't have a clue what the heck it is.

Back to my desktop, I open up my emails only to find out that I have no player capable of playing an M4P file. I tried to download a "fix" for this and none is available. So, I am stuck listening to this on my very tiny single speaker on my laptop.

What an ordeal. I'm waiting till May.

I thought I read somewhere where somebody found away around this M4P crap. Couldn't find it though.
