Great project, also noted the journal entry. Cant wait for this one ! I can think of any

number of such songs/tracks which are some of my favorites.

new albums lined up, plus a compilation. now how about "These Tapes Rewind" vol.2 ?

Just need to clone myself, Tom, so that I can deal with all these various projects at once and take care of domestic duties at the same time. Hmmn...how many clones would I need? Five or six? 🙃

Find a team of minians, Bill. Language is problem at first but the always follow orders.

Starting to put together a list of potential 'jazzy' tracks for the 'Stylus' album. Not a running order at this stage, just a list of possible inclusions.

 

Looks like it will be hard to choose which tracks will make the final album as, so far I've listed 34 tracks and still have more to add.

 

Didn't realise I'd made so many pieces of music that could fit the genre. I've also got three brand new tracks to add that no-one has heard yet. These are titled: 'Woozy,' 'Science-Fiction Serenade,' and 'We Dare To Dream.'

 

Obviously, a download album can contain as many tracks as you want, there's no physical limit because there is no physical disc. But putting everything out at once would present listeners with far too much to take in at one sitting so I have two options.

1: Be very ruthless and choose only 12 or maybe 14 tracks at most.

2: Release all the tracks as a series, (three albums,) but not simultaneously.

 

Anyway, once I've completed making a list of track possibilities, the next task will be to listen carefully to them all and attempt to put an interesting running order together. No small job this...

Well if it was done like The Dreamer's Companion Vol. 1-3, that could be a way to include them all over time, like a 3 month stretch.

Along with the three brand new tracks I've recorded for the Stylus compilation album, I've now added a fourth new number titled, 'Allow Me To Insist.' Quite pleased with this one. However, it's not making the choice of running order any easier! 🤔

Maybe at least one double album. 👌🏼✨

I've been away for a while. I know Bill has a backlog of albums in the wings. I've got some catching up to do!

And here's another 'Stylus' flyer. Just for fun...
