Well the CD is almost complete. With this
year's flu season I was not immune to it and was sick for a few weeks which did
not allow me to finish our last vocal track - At Long Last Love. We're going
in tomorrow evening to lay those down and then it's on to tweaking the final mixes
of everything and mastering it. I have changed the name of the
CD - It's now called From Miss Lee To YouThere is still just a little bit of time to pre-purchase on Feed The Muse
and get your name on the acknowledgements for the liner notes. I took the
photos, liner notes and info on the CD to Uni-sette yesterday. They haven't
completed the type setting and finished the cover art yet so if you want to pre-purchase,
now is the time to do it and still be a part of the liner notes. Just go to
http://www.feedthemuse.net/vivianlee It will send me an email letting me know that
you have donated and I'll send your name over to Uni-sette. Don't forget that
at the end of the project I will be donating 10% of what is left in my budgeted
amount to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation in memory of Anne Gipson (my mom
who passed away from breast cancer) After that 10% of each CD sold will be
donated to the foundation as well.
