I received mine too! I'm just going trough it all, but I was wondering... Did anyone else get some song lyrics? I got one for one song, maybe we should share!

Because that's what I love about Jeff's cds and this forum: Jeff always provides the lyrics and for the non-album songs most lyrics can be found on the forum so I can actually understand what the songs are about!

I have "Till I get a diamond (2nd draft)", what did you get?

Glad they're arriving! They all have that same lyric scrap, but it really WOULD have been a good idea for me to include a different lyric with each one! I figured I only had room to print lyrics for one song, and that one seemed like one of the songs where the lyrics might be hard to hear because of the lo-fi recording.

I can't believe I get such a special thing and that someone would be so lovely to do this once, let alone 4 times! And when they are so busy as well. It's very sweet x

I have given the cd a few listens and have decided I really like it. There would definitely be a few potential tracks for a future "proper album" and I like how it captures a few months of time so some of the themes are the same throughout a few of the songs presumably based on whatever was going on at the time. I actually like albums sounding like this over loads of instruments sometimes, it's simple but you can hear all the words and is a bit like poetry really with a bit of a tune to carry it. The latest Malcolm Middleton album is a two disc piece with the songs recorded with a full band on one and a bloke and guitar version of the same songs as a bonus disc. I only ever seem to listen to disc two, my ears prefer it.
Thank you again Jeff I really appreciate the effort and time you put into all these things xx

I'm too bald for it to grow back very much, but I'll let the sides grow out for sure! : )
Hmm, is there a "bald" smiley emoticon? Maybe ( : )

It must be very cold to have hardly any hair in the upcoming New York winter!

I really love the cd, i'm a huge lo-fi recordings fan and i'm so glad you got this idea for the 4th giveaway.
I really enjoy the different finger picking and strumming you use on some of the song, especially the 8th one.
What i like about lo-fi recording in general is that the melody has nowhere to hide, it is also inspiring for us "bedroom musicians".
These giveaway are just awesome each single time.

Thanks so much Dav, really glad to hear it!
I feel like i've barely been making any finger-picked songs for a while, most of my earlier songs were always finger picked, but in recent years most of the stuff seems to be strummed... I should try to get back to more quiet picking stuff!

I'd like a return to the finger picking too, if it counts, even if just once in a while! I played Turn in the Dream Songs this afternoon and thought the same thing. I love having a new stereo it's like discovering my music all over again! And guess what, it's all amazing!

I took a wander over to Spillers records today to buy 'somebody' a present and noticed there was a lack of Jeffrey Lewis albums in there, not one!
Make sure you give me a shout if you want anything for record store day next month and I will go in and pick them up for anyone who wants them. I plan to get the Conor Oberst one.
xx
