Today We Are an Album

[Cross-posted at Floor Your Love -- S.S.]

And they said it would never happen.

But yes, the reissue...remastered to a fare-thee-well at great personal expense (and with five bonus tracks -- three studio and two live)...of our 1995 masterpiece (originally on Gadfly Records) is now a reality.



The song above is, as you will immediately notice, our attempt at a contemporary tune in the mold of Buddy Holly, and I think a very successful one.

In any case, the other 15 songs on the record are all on YouTube. If you want to purchase them, you can do so at CD Baby, Amazon and iTunes; the album can also be streamed on Spotify, Pandora, and pretty much all of the other usual suspects.

I should add that this reissue has been about two years in the making (and a dream come true -- the 1995 version had vastly inferior sound). And I would like to say to my bandmates -- Gerry (obviously), J.D. Goldberg and Glen "Bob" Allen -- that you should be damned proud of the work you did, both two decades ago and more recently.

I should also add that an absolutely sensational video for one of the songs -- "A Drop of Rain" -- will be viewable on-line probably by the end of the week.

Hey let me think, maybe I'll play something from it tomorrow on my show. Is it ok if I mention that?

Steve,

This sounds seriously great. I wanna bag me one in that brand new compact disc format.

If the rest is nearly as good, I'll be happy.

Great Job from beginning to end. Love it!!!! Just wondering why this is the first time I'm hearing this?!? Shame that groups like this get little to no exposure while the airwaves are flooded with groups that have to use samples / auto-tune and the majority of the buying public eat it up. Thanks for the "new" discovery!!!
