It's Here

Making a CD of our music has been on our vision board for several years. The project  came in fits and
starts as the old saying goes.
But earlier this year we began putting a great deal of focus on the project. Our good friend Fred, who is a sound man extraordinaire encouraged and guided us through the process.
We sent it off to press about a week ago and I got an email yesterday saying it shipped.
The morning was frantic for us. We had errands to run and a ton of chores on our todo list. After lunch we took a short nap to recharge our batteries.
When I woke up, I opened my UPS app on my phone to check on the progress of the shipment. It said the package had been delivered about 45 minutes earlier.
When I stepped to our screen porch, the box was sitting on the table. I ripped open the box, and there it was. We high-fived each other before stripping the cellophane off the cover and popping it into the player.
Shameless self promotion:
The music will be available from CDBaby and on iTunes, but I'm not sure when that will happen. If anyone would like an autographed copy, you can visit our website www.rickandjilda.com
Tonight Jilda cooked a special meal and we did a toast to each other, and to music.

  12. Rick,

    I'm so glad I ordered your CD! It came in the mail the other day and I have listened to it in the sanctuary if my car as I drove to and from work. I am very impressed with the songwriting you and Jilda have done. These are memorable tunes -- I find myself singing them later on throughout the day. "World Keeps Spinning" is one of my favorites in the CD; everything came together beautifully in that one. So many of the songs carry helpful metaphors about life such as lyrics found in "The Eagle" and "Sad Cafe." "Tattooed Soul" was beautifully haunting, and the melody took a slightly different turn from the other songs -- great versatility. I also have to say that the guitar work was full, beautiful and impeccably performed. Since I haven't had the opportunity to hear you and Jilda in person, this CD was a real treat!

    1. Hey Charles, I can thank you enough for this post. We're putting together a packet for the Johnson City Folk Festival today and we needed some reviews of the CD.
      This one is the best of the lot. Jilda got tears in her eyes when I showed it to her earlier.
      Again Thanks.
