Seven!!! There's only 80 minutes on a CD... Oh, my mistake, its strings not songs, that was lucky.

Is there a length limit for songs? Not that i'm coming up with something long, just to clear things up.

I guess i could record a track around 3-4 mins, or come up with a few short ones. Which way would you prefer?

This all sounds great, & I'm glad I'm involved. May I throw out "UnFretted Roots",
"BeYond Frets", UnFretted & UnPhased"......................MAV

So many ideas! So little time, back to the limits.. 80 minutes are available so just do what you feel, if we run over that can go forward to the next CD.

Emre is right about jewel cases and shipping, so what about a simple version and a deluxe special edition?

Should that be "UnfreTTed Routes" ?

Um... I have worked out a pretty good way to do paper slip cover art layouts that are pdf formatted and sized so that a 8.5 x 11 sheet can be printed and folds pretty easily into the slip cover. I would be happy to take your draft layout and try to issue something close to that in the format I described. On the other hand if you were planning on using a print shop you probably won't need that.

Any help much appreciated!

8.5 x 11 (Letter Size) is difficult (and expensive) to get in Europe. We are running on 210x297mm (A4) its thinner and longer (missus) approx 8 1/4 x 11 11/16 or 8.25 x 11.6875

It is very confusing here, paper is all metric sizes, beer is in pints but spirits in 25ml 50ml measures, 70ml and 1 litre bottles. Distance in miles, other things sold by the metre. People are weighed in stones and pounds, vegatables and meat sold in kilogrammes. Private parts still measured in inches, some things never change.

I think the traditional Jewel case is fine, or perhaps we can do both. V

I just had a flash of perspiration, some companys ship CD's internationally without the jewel case, but with the artwork that fits inside. This saves on postage etc. and allows you to receive said CD without it being opened by HM Customs.

(HM Customs regularly "inspect" CDs incoming to the UK for substances. Inevitably those from the Netherlands. It always brings a smile to my face when I think of the officer examining mine and exclaiming "Hey there's actually a CD in this one.")

So some sort of universal artwork that suits both formats would be the best of both worlds.

Jewel case booklet without the jewel case, that's a good option for shipping...

And actually, those both formats are about the same size, so one artwork fits all :)

In case there's still room on the CD, I submit for your perusal two older pieces of mine (from 2001; mp3s), both vaguely in the Hindutronica genre. (Conversion to Wav from their original SDII format no prob.)

The latter one, my George Harrison tribute (done right after he died) contains a melodic quote from his tune Blue Jay Way and a sample from his tune Love You To (on the Revolver LP) for which I would need to get the usual permissions before releasing on a CD (anyone done this recently?), but it contains a little more fretless soloing than the first one.

I like "Unfretted Records and "Villiage of the unfretted"

I like both too, but doesn't Village imply something different these days?

Not that our village etc. etc.

Villager

Reminds me of what my teacher used to say in the poetry elective class I took back in music school:

"You're responsible for EVERY association of a word you use."

Those associations might include The Village People (egad!), Village of the Damned (Hollywood's title for John Wyndham's book The Midwich Cuckoos, I think) or "It Takes a Village", etc.

Not necessarily reasons not to use "Village", but...

Kai,

Both great tracks, listened them through a couple of times now.

Either would be great to have on the CD, permissions pending, perhaps the first if it makes things easier.

Nice.

Oh dear, what a sheltered life I lead. I was with Kai on the Midwich Cuckoo's film but now you mention it...

Reference to the Village in Manchester is very specific. I know Villager is not from there, but...

Funny how language can change over time.

I'm not any less happy with the title, just worried about the costumes for the photoshoot!

Anyone else worried / bothered / negatives / positives ??
