Hey Guys,    I just checked on good old Mike Matessino during this global pandemic crisis and inquired about his well being. He indicated that I should pass on the message that he is all wel

There it is, guys:   NEW PODCAST EPISODE! - Guest host Tim Burden presents an exclusive interview with Paddy Moloney of The Chieftains about his work and collaboration with John Willi

The little video with Tim Burden is great, it'd be nice to do that for the future releases as well!  

Mine says shipped too, but right now USPS just sees the label being made. Probably tomorrow morning that it shows up as moving in the system. (I really wish releases were on Thursdays so that could get part of the way before the weekend.) It's coming from Burbank, and I'm in LA at the moment so could it possibly show up tomorrow? That would be a welcome joy after a very long week.

Mine has left Santa Clarita.

Don’t forget to go to the USPS tracking page and input your cell to receive text alerts.  Mine is scheduled for delivery Tuesday, just in time for St. Patrick’s day!

Mine updated to Monday! :woop:

Well it certainly brings ME some much-needed joy. Thank you!

 

EDIT: Very interesting comment about him finding the music static and asking JW to play it his own way. I wonder why that happened. Also listening to the Chieftains' first album right now to stay in a good mood.

Cool, Townerfan! Do you talk about this album too? I remember owning that once, a selection of The Chieftains' film music work:

Nope, and Townerfan wasn't part of the interview.

Update from MV at FSM thread:

Guys, we have a 1000 orders to ship let alone the wholesale orders. The cds came in early afternoon on Friday and started shipping out that late afternoon. We worked on Saturday filling orders instead of buying toilet paper.

Oh and in case you didn't know this there is a BLEEPIN worldwide pandemic going on.

Chill out and please wait at least a week to email us and ask if your order has shipped. We are doing the best we can under these circumstances

Yes, people's obsession with shipping systems and speed (and even their desire to post about it in forums) has always been completely baffling to me.

 We can blame Amazon with their ability to deliver some items the same day they're ordered.

MIke's job at Universal is to oversee fresh transfers of all their old analog tapes, so I'd certainly imagine that's what was used here.  It sounds AMAZING from start to finish.

 

Thinking about this more, it's most certainly a new digital transfer of analog tape.  Remember the HP1 digital master from 2001 was only 24/44.1, so Mike wisely had the analog tapes pulled to do the entire project in 192/24.  Far and Away is from 1992 and the digital master from that era is probably 16/44.1 or something!  There's no way he could have gotten the improvement in sound he did without going to a pristine analog source.
