I'm not going to write up a full journal entry today as I'm just about to go out and have dinner with Emiko at our local village pub, (which does excellent meals, though I'm limited in my diet due to the Diabetes problem.) Instead I'm going to share a quick photo' I took today of my new Backlund by Eastwood 'Rockerbox' archtop guitar which arrived this morning. It's a retro-futurist beauty and very well made. I've already recorded a track with it and it sounds perfect. (And it's in a lovely 'strawberries and cream' colour which matches my 'Astroluxe Cadet' and my 'Backlund Model 100.')
Also, today saw the reissue in digital download form of my double album 'Songs For Ghosts' which quickly sold out when it was in limited edition CD form last October. A very richly textured album filled with vocal and instrumental tracks which I'm pleased to make available again for any fans who missed out on it first time around.
Meanwhile, enjoy the photograph...Left to right: 'Backlund Rockerbox,' 'Astroluxe Cadet,' and 'Backlund Model 100.'
