Today was spent dealing with the filmed interview about the 'Sunburst Finish' album. Matt and Mark from Cherry Red Records arrived just after midday to set up the cameras and lights in the small space of my home studio. It was very tight in there but I think we got something useable done in the end. Then John Leckie did his section of the interview in our dining room and, lastly, John and I did a joint section in the lounge. Hopefully, it won't come across too badly, though there were moments when we were both struggling to remember exactly what we did 42 years ago when the album was recorded.
We were also given gifts of the luxury box set of the album which I have to say looks absolutely top notch. A really fantastic package that does the album proud. I think hard core fans will be knocked out by it.
Matt and Mark departed around 7pm and then John and Emi and I went to the village pub once more for a dinner together. John is leaving tomorrow for home after spending three days here. It's been lovely to see him again. I don't know when the next time we'll get together might be, but I hope it's not too long. A warm, fond farewell in the village pub car park then we were off into the night for the brief drive back home.
Caught up with the news of the US mid-term elections and was pleased to see that the Democrats had taken control of the House Of Representatives. Control of the Senate was never really on the radar for them, so that didn't come as a surprise, but it's a good outcome for the Democrats and hopefully shows the way the country is drifting for the 2020 elections.
Now, with the Cherry Red interview complete, tomorrow will be focussed on the ongoing preparations for 'Plectronica.' Really have to knuckle down and get the various pieces of artwork under way, and after that, concentrate or guitar selection and essential equipment preparation. It's all go...
