"You said you should have left me at Christmas
and then again on Valentines..."
For those of you that don't know this was a live solo-acoustic performance with string quartet that was broadcast LIVE on Valentine's Day by Radio FM4, Austria. The Valentine’s Day Session was initially only available as a bonus disk with There Are No Goodbyes and so outside of the 2000 CD’s (or maybe it was 3000?) out in the wild you most likely wouldn’t have heard these recordings. It’s live, intense and very raw (and all the better for it) and it's this character that I think people appreciate. and I’ll admit I was a little surprised as more and more people were asking for it on vinyl too. It's always held a special place in my heart especially because of where my heart was at the time and truthfully I can’t think of a much better coincidence of events than having this performance recorded on Valentine’s Day.
These new masters were done by Charlie Francis (who also did the As We Make Our Way live-album) and he’s has done a incredible job. The new master just makes the band sound so big, tight and punchy and yet without needing all of that modern day over-compression/limiting that ruins so many modern masters. I should note that we did make the digital files slightly louder so they would blend better with the music you have on your computers/phones/whatever-the-kids-use-these-days players but we’ve left the vinyl-master very open so the giving cutting engineer all the freedom to cut the lacquer exactly as loud or quiet as he thinks will suit the music. I felt that was the best way: two new masters per release.
P.S. Sorry to have to say this yet again (some people don't listen though...) but ONLY ONE OF EACH NEW-ISSUE PER ORDER. No exceptions. And I'm sorry but I will automatically cancel your order. But yes that does mean you can purchase one De Nachten and one The Valentines Day Session per order. Thanks and big hugs!
