Here is my CD, mostly new (old) songs, mastered by Beardfire in Dublin to make the sound better. I hope you like it.
Rohan Healy of Beardfire spoke highly of it, the great old songs sung as if singing in the kitchen, he said.
Mastering makes a lot of difference to a record, I said to George it sounds like a Johnny Cash record as far as sound quality goes, I like it anyway. Let me know what you think.
I have a new book out, Reasonable Rhymes, for sale in Beat That and Pat the Barber’s here in Arklow. No takers so far. You said people aren’t in to reading books. My brother said music sells better, you don’t have to be able to read. Some guy my brother spoke to said he falls asleep when he gets to the second page of a book.
Do you think I should try to sell my singing CD? You said there’s no harm in trying. Beat That have one copy for sale, an earlier version, not mastered, like the one you have already. James there said no one buys stuff made by someone not famous. He sells second-hand books and vinyl records and cd’s of all kinds, all well chosen.
George said he should put an ad up in the library in the children’s section because he has good books for children. He said he doesn’t want any children coming into his shop, if they came in he would box their ears, he has enough trauma with the adults. So don’t look young if you go in there.
Send a tenner to me, Tich Ennis, Reality, Seaview Avenue, Arklow, its all grist to the mill. I am a late starter but better late than never.
James sells good stuff, by the way. An American spoke highly of his shop so he is internationally known. At least with passers by.
So get an earful of my CD, what do you think of the words, the songs, the tunes and least of all my voice? As Joe Tobin said, at least you can hear the words. I am not going to die of over praise.
So you are going to a wedding today. Another good man bites the dust. That’s life.
Best wishes and happy listening,
