Fred and I are nearing the summit, but are low on oxygen and pulmonary edema is setting in quickly. One ill-timed blizzard could ruin the whole climb and kill us all - but we've got summit-fever and will continue on with encouragement from base-camp.

All that to say - the real mixing begins today!
Great to hear that Robert is on this album. I was amazed by his voice at the Tivoli show(He sat in for Carl on the rehearsal). And as for your pulmonary edema, don't forget you have two BIG fans that are Respiratory Therapists!!!!!Maybe a little barter=treatment for GH merchandise!HEHE

So, I haven't been around in a while. But I wanted everyone to know that the album is awesome. That is all.

Take care!

I can't wait to hear "Culture!' I need all the culture I can get.

One quick question: I wondered why the "chop" Dean logo was not used on the oh-so-cool cover?

October is going to be good...new Glass Hammer and Alfred Hitchcock Presents season 3!

I'll just wait patiently until COA is released--then I'll slip it into my home stereo and CRANK IT. GH is nearly always fun to listen to when it's loud. :D

Something occurred to me today, and at this stage it's probably too late to change anything, but it must be said...

I dearly hope that the lyrics for this CD will be more readable than they were on TIS. I missed not being able to flip open a CD insert booklet and read the words while driving, or while listening on my home stereo (which is in a different room from the computer.) In fact, I was for awhile working through a plan to print the TIS lyrics, then staple sheets together, then cut them so that the resulting sheaf would fit into the TIS digipack. I've done it before, and it always eats free time like Vegas eats money. Never completed the job. I mean, if you guys are gonna put so much time and effort into writing lyrics that aren't run-of-the-mill pop fluff, I'd like to be able to read them.

I have to add, by no means do I intend to criticize. I'm sure that those who designed the TIS packaging had good reasons for putting the lyrics onto one of the CDs.

Will the COA packaging include a CD booklet with lyrics?

A booklet with lyrics - Yes indeed. 8)

Steve,what other books about Everest would you recommend besides "Into Thin Air"? I want to get more prepared for COA lyrically.

To me, the Jon Anderson snippet is somewhat reminiscent of his work on Olias of Sunhillow. I'm just curious if he has continued to use that style of vocal looping in his later work. I only have Olias and Animation, both released well over 20 years ago.

Shocking how well Olias holds up over time! It will be interesting to see if I'm saying similar things about TIS and COA 20 years from now...should I live so long...jamming to Knight of the North at 64 :wink:
