Blind Weenie's Blues- Available Now!
« on: April 27, 2012, 02:26:52 AM »
Last Autumn I was foolish enough to raise my head above the parapet and suggest the creation of a Weenie Campbell CD.  I am delighted to say that I will be taking delivery of the finished product today.

So here's what you need to know:

The album is a compilation of 17 fine country blues tunes performed by a variety Weenie members. A full track listing can be found in the attached cover pictures. 

You can order Blind Weenie's Blues now for the princely sum of ?8 / $12.95 to include postage, or you can wait until it reaches CD Baby (which should be in the next few weeks) where it should be available as both CD and download. 

To order direct, you can use paypal- simonfield@gofast.co.uk, including your delivery address.

All profits from the CD will be donated to Weeniecampbell.com

Huge thanks to:

  • Phil Thorne for assistance throughout, and Mike Thorne for donating his skill and time to master the project. 
    BanjoChris and Unezerider, for the sterling work on art and design.
    All contributors for their time and music.

If you think you may have a good opportunity to sell some of these CDs for us (perhaps you are attending / organising a relevant gig or workshop soon?) please get in touch. 

I will be in contact shortly with all contributors.

Matches the content. I seem to have had this CD playing non-stop in iTunes since I was given a "test pressing" seven days ago. No denying there's some serious vocal and instrumental talent lurking in them thar Weenie hills.

Simon in his booklet note observes, "I believe that the talent and music of the collected "Weenies" is deserving of wider attention". Very true, and to that end I'm currently in the process of writing a lengthy review which will be submitted to Blues & Rhythm magazine. 

In light of this it would be invidious of me at this stage to single out for special comment individual performances, but all are of the highest standard with something for every taste in roots music ? even the banjo get's a heads-up!

Seriously, if you don't purchase this CD (or download mp3s) you'll live to rue the day.  ;D

Mr Cumberpatch is commonly known as Marshcat.  Blueingreen is our resident pre war harp guy- I dont think I know his real name!

Just a quick note to all who have already sent messages or ordered...

I've not had a chance to individually respond yet, and the CDs actually arrived later than promised... However they are safely with me now and I am expecting to make some time tomorrow evening to start packaging and sending.

At your convenience, Simon. Don't turn this into a chore--no one needs another brick on the load.
