Hello! Another day blends into the last, it grows hard to keep it all straight; I’ve taken to writing little notes in my datebook to remind me when things happened. I just added this blue highlight: “A chaos of desire DATs” as I’ve put up a new exclusive for my supporters. They help pay the bills during these tough times, and in exchange receive exclusive content to download or stream; this week I got a $25-a-month Patron and a $5-a-month patron at bandcamp. I appreciate those of you who can afford to support. If you’re concerned about finances, I totally get it! These are tough days. You can grab a free download of Highlights 2016-2020, or stream all of our music at Spotify.
Stay well, stay patient, we’ll get through this. Take care…. Sam
A chaos of desire (DAT1-2-3)
29 years and 11 months ago, I mixed Black Tape For A Blue Girl’s 4th album, A chaos of desire. I worked for days in my friend Walter Holland’s home studio, perfecting the way I wanted each song to sound. For this exclusive patron release I digitized three sixty-minute DAT tapes with multiple mixes of all the songs on the album. Listen for slight differences of volume on the vocals and instruments — I’m sure fans will enjoy hearing these subtly different mixes (plus there’s an acoustic mix of the first half of “Pandora’s Box.”) Chaos was released in 1991. I’m thinking of a remastered 2LP / CD edition for the 30th anniversary in 2021, once we’re free to be ourselves again. I don’t think I’ve mentioned in all these years that I sing one line on the album. It’s in the title track, “life moves on, lie in wait, unaffected unconscious.” Today, we’re all waiting for life to move on.
