The Holy Grail of Irish Drinking Songs

I hate to say it, but sometimes Andrew comes up with the most brilliant ideas. Last night, he did that. I went to Mother Egan's to take a LOT o'pictures of Guinness to see if I can come up with a CD cover for the new Irish drinking songs compilation. As I'm mentioning how on the back cover I was using a picture of a castle, he jokingly threw out a silly idea that I ran with. Thus was born the title of our new CD, "The Holy Grail of Irish Drinking Songs". And the cover you see below:

UPDATE: Wow! I just got back from Andrew's. We were practicing a few songs for DragonCon this coming weekend. He's been hard at work mixing new songs, and remastering old ones. And wow! I'm impressed!

Andrew remastered all of the old songs and gave them a fuller body. A lot of our earlier recordings, while they sounded great, they weren't radio ready. They didn't have a fully body. Lots of highs and now low end. Andrew's learned a LOT about mastering and took those old recordings, cleaned them up and remastered them so they sound sharper and fuller than ever. It's amazing!

My hat's off to Andrew. The new CD will sound brilliant!

More details of the CD should be coming... Find out more about The Holy Grail of Irish Drinking Songs here.
