NEW CD now available for pre-oder

83 posts in this topic

My copy arrived Monday, but since the following day was Mardi Gras I decided to wait till then to open it up and enjoy it.

Congratulations guys on a job well done!  For me, it is a perfect last-music-before-I-go-to-bed album.

CD arrived here, just gave it a first listen, and I' thoroughly impressed. You uncovered sides in these songs, harmonically, sonically, that were beneath the surface, gave them original rhythmic arrangements, and added new touches. Love those Freedom Jazz Dance like phrases in one of the organ solos. 

And, although I didn't buy that CD, as it is not quite my bag, I hear touches of THEO and progressive rock. I'M positively surprised. If you ever come to Germany and need a percussionist, I'm in.

Haven't made it through the whole disc yet, but I echo that -- and if there's ever an Org+mikeweil gig in Germany, I'll do my best to make it there! :)

Really, really enjoying this.  Love the concept and track selections.  "Within You, Without You" is sublime.  Great cover too.

Wanted to properly and in good time announce this, but it went under ... in half an hour, there'll be my 90 minute portrait of Organissimo, including selections from all albums, as well as from the great Big John Patton tribute Jim made.

Go here and click the play button on the left:

Announcements are in German (that's yours truly speaking).

Info posted as we go on over here:

Man I love the version of "Can't Buy Me Love". Not enough stars to award.

Yes, if you paid for the bonus material option you should of got a email notice form pledgemusic with download links early this month. I would check your spam folder perhaps or contact Jim.

I did not get any e-mail... and I get all of Jim's e-mails so I doubt it got put into spam. My spam folder empties itself every now & then so it won't be there months later.

I just checked my order for "B3atles - A Tribute To The Fab Four" and I definitely ordered the bonus material option.

We are still talking about the "B2atles" bonus material, right? I do not see "Live At The Speakez" on Pledge Music's website and the order page for this CD (which is somewhat hard to find right now) doesn't mention any bonus material.

BTW, if Jim is watching this thread, the new "Live At The Speakez" CD is not showing up in the "CDs" link on the organissimo home page nor does it show up under the "CD" link in the Big O store. It only shows in the left most slider as a New Release and at the CD baby store as a download.
