Scramble to Wrap.

November 17, 2004

A couple passes at vocals on a couple songs, a few more guitar tracks, then madly going through everything to make sure we’re done.

Theoretically, when I return to Mpls after Thanksgiving, we’ll just jump into mixing, without fussing with the overdubs. Dan’s going to do a lot while I’m gone, a lot of comping.
I sleep in New York tonight, then I fly to Charlottesville in the morning. All day I meet the people at my new record company, then play Starr Hill that evening.
Bruce, my A&R guy, called to check in last night. Dan spoke with him, then handed it to me. “It’s your A&R guy,” Dan said. Wow. It sounded so surreal to me. It’s been a long time since I’ve had a record deal.
