What's going on with Maynard's Groovy Bible Tunes, from day to day...
I'm working hard towards a new CD - 14 songs that haven't been on a 'major' CD before (one or two have appeared on the Easter / Christmas compilation CDs) - and every song is either a new recording or a re-mix with better software (& techniques).
As part of this process, "It was dark" (based on Genesis 1, the first creation account) has been remixed. It was one of my better recordings anyway, but I think I've improved it! You can listen on the jukebox - and the new version is in the store.
The new store version is a 320kbps version (or 384kbps if you get the .wma file). What does that mean? It means there's more data per second, so a better sound. I'm working towards all the store downloads being at this rate.
"Maynard's" has had a great Easter! Thanks for your support.
We've had increasing hits in the run-up to Easter, with lots of tracks being listened to and lots of sheet-music downloads.
Favourites over the period have been:
For Listening: the same, in a slightly different order!!!
"Good Friday" has been the out-and-out hit, soaring over the others.
Great - hope it brings glory to God, and helps people to trust in Jesus
I've been asked for a specific Easter CD, so I've made one - a compilation of the most Easter-y songs. In particular it's got three new songs that haven't been on CD before: Most Important, Good Friday, and Luke 19v10.
I'm still planning to make a 'proper' new CD - ie all new songs - songs that haven't been on one of the other (non-compilation) CDs! I'm nearly there.... still a couple of recordings to do, and a load of sheet music.
The run-up to Easter is proving to be busy at work - excitingly - but that does stop me doing much on the songs for the moment. So it'll be after Easter before I get the new CD out.
I'd still like to 'up' the production values, and make something that someone might want to sell in a shop - perhaps by having more songs with kids singing on them. I just don't seem to be able to make the time right now - or even to plan the time! Argh!
