are you doing a new cd sleeve/artwork for this one?

was just listening to 'through a glass darkly' yesterday...
how can it be made to sound any better, it sounds very good already?!?! or is it a secret of an inconsolable nature? [cheesy, sorry;)]

hope it sells bucketloads for ya's, its a very good piece of work/music.

I think we'll be doing new artwork for the discs. Its tentatively titled "Lirazel - The Inconsolable Secret Revisited".
Glass Darkly needed some additional tweaking by Fred, and we re-recorded Susie's lead vocal. The essence of that song will not change - just the overall sound :)

I can't wait to have at least this IS, cause for me it's still nearly impossible to get the original.

Can I ask...how about Walter vocals? Will you, Fred and Steve, get his role on the new IS?

:D

Walter's vocals will not be removed from this album - only in spots and on certain songs. Susie will do some of it, along with some new folks in other places. :)

Wow! It's much better than I thought!

I think, personally, that Walter vocals are a kind of mark in many songs on IS, like KotN, MoC and Long and Long Ago,

Aww, Long and Long Ago is such a good song. Are you going to turn up the choir at the end? Pretty please?? :D

I absolutely LOVE Walter's voice, so as far as I'm concerned, the more the better :)

No idea on a release yet. But work continues. We may get a shot at recording Susie on the end of Long and Long Ago in about 1 hour. She's heading this way to sing another tune right now - so if time permits we'll be that much closer.
