Currently working hard on what I suspect will be the final album to be made on my old hardware-based recording equipment. Getting pretty close to the end of that, though once completed the album will require track sequencing and, of course, artwork. This is a vocal/song album with the working title of 'Vulcan Street' though I'm far from sure about keeping this as the real title. I may well change it, once I've assembled the track running order and got more of a handle on the album's feel.
Here are the 14 song titles completed so far:
'LIKE AUTUMN LEAVES WE FALL.'
'I REALLY DON'T EXIST.'
'THE ANGEL WITH TELEVISION EYES.'
'AS QUICKLY AS A KISS.'
'WIDE AWAKE IN THE HEART OF YOU.'
'SERENE IN SILVER.'
'STRICTLY FOR THE BIRDS.'
'THE WAY MY WORLD WORKS.'
The last title is still in progress and should be completed over the weekend. This list does not constitute a running order for the album though. Working out the final order of the songs will take time, trying out different sequences, paying attention to mood, key changes and tempo.
There is still a large backlog of unreleased albums to deal with. Here's a list of them:
'AMPLIFIED DREAMS AND WILD SURPRISES.'
If you include 'Vulcan Street', (whatever title it eventually gets,) you've got 12 unreleased albums coming sometime over this and next year. And I already have in mind 'Tales Of Tomorrow' and 'Think Tank' as potential future album titles to work on when my new recording system is installed. After all, once I've got it up and running, I'll be keen to get to grips with it and see what transpires. 😉
Going out for dinner this evening with two friends of ours. Will have to resist the temptation to have a glass of wine with the meal as I'm still 'on the wagon.' I have allowed myself a glass of ultra low alcohol wine these last few weeks, (just 0.5 % alcohol per bottle,) but low alcohol wine is higher in sugar than normal wine, so I have to be careful about my diabetes and blood-sugar levels. Zero alcohol wine has even more sugar content...I tried that and found out it wasn't at all good for my diabetes. The condition prohibits so much enjoyment but you have to accept and get used to it. The alternative is life threatening.
Tomorrow we will be driving over to my mum's in Wakefield again to help her with her weekly shopping. The weekends seem to roll around at an increasing pace. I often find myself talking about the nature of time in these journal entries, (and in my songs,) but time really does seem to fly by these days. As one of my old songs from the early '80s 'Quit Dreaming And Get On The Beam' album has it: 'Life Runs Out Like Sand.'
Hey Ho...just do it...
