We are overjoyed to count among our fans the world-renowned Jac Holzman!
This elder statesman of the music industry (and a man who carries a mini-lantern on his person --how deep is that!) put the songs that you will hear, come summer, into the order that you will hear them, come summer.
This is called sequencing and it's the reason you like albums.
If you don't like albums, just singles, then you are a 13yr old girl and you don't know what's good anyway.
Jac spent a lot of time listening to the songs and conceived a conceptual and emotional whole.
Sometimes the creators of the album are unable to listen with objective ears...maybe we want to put the songs in the order of the live set...or maybe we want to disagree with each other about things cause SOMEbody is just like that...
Anyway, when Jac Holzman asked to do this, we were quite flattered, and after listening to the album in it's entirety at the Cordless offices, we were instantly thrilled with what we heard.
This is the best album we could have made right now.
You will enjoy it.
Jac was gracious enough to pose for some pics with us. I tried to resist asking him too many questions about the Doors and stuff, but he indulged me anyway. Can't wait to read his book. He is super cool. He seems 20 years younger than he is. My guess that among the five of us, only Dave will be as sprightly.
