2007 Compiliation Update


Hopefully this isn’t a sign of things to come, but I won’t be getting around to finally distributing the 2007 compilation CD for a few more weeks. Yes, I know it’s almost May, and for some—especially given all of the highly anticipated releases that have appeared or will be coming soon (e.g., Portishead’s Third)—2007 might seem a dim musical memory.

At the very least, though, I should explain why there’s been such a delay. First, January and February were insanely busy times for me workwise. Nonetheless, I did manage to come up with a final sequence for the 28 tracks spread over two discs some time ago. When I was listening to the full playback to check levels and transitions, I encountered problems with two tracks and realized I’d have to push things back even more. That is, after attempting to rip them using three different CD drives, I determined that the source discs were the problem. So I ordered new copies of both discs (the replacement for one of which was backordered and arrived just today), only to still have glitches—though luckily at different points in the respective tracks. My solution now is to edit two different versions of each track into seamless, glitch-free versions. It’s going to take me some time to get to that, but those of you on the list can rest assured that something will finally be on its way to you soon…
