Sorry, this post has nothing to do with soup. It’s a brief rant about how long it takes to finish a CD, and how sometimes people you work with in the process aren’t the best judges of the prospective timeline.
Why do I say this? Because when I started this project, I had an initial thought that we could be finished by July. That was at the beginning of 2011. And, I suppose, we “could” have been done in July if I had pushed through the project and booked day after day in the studio. But since this is my first CD,it became clear that rushing wasn’t a good idea.
Next I thought we’d be done by October. Well … then maybe November. Surely we would be finished by November. Um, maybe not! LOL I’ve stopped giving potential finish dates. When we’re done, we’re done. I have HOPES of being done by/in December. I promise to make a big announcement here and everywhere I can when the album IS done. In the meantime, we’re going to make the best darned CD we can.
BTW, over the past year, I’ve heard other talk of spending 1, 2, even 3 years finishing an album. So, I will be glad to have my CD when I have my CD.
