Finishing Touches

I put several hours into the final song today (I think now it's going to be called "Smoke In The Wind"...not to be confused with Deep Purple's immortal "Smoke On The Water"...essentially my song and their song have the words "smoke" and "the" in common. I like it a lot. And I like the album a lot, too. It's going to be an eleven song record, of course, but I think that "Smoke On The Wind" will be an album exclusive track on both the compact disc and download versions. I am going to make a .wav file of each song (again) and listen carefully to each one, making sure that each mix is complete (sometimes I'll listen to a song long after I'm done with it and think of something new I wish I'd thought to put on), and well-balanced (which is tougher and tougher for me these days given the not optimum level of hearing in my ears.)  As I said last week, it's very likely that the record will be released next week. Check back when you can for updates, which should be fairly regular for the next few days.
