CD Ordering: update here

Deep in a Dream : An Evening with the Songs of David McComb’ is now ready to roll.

Here are some more details on the album, including the full track listing ; ordering details at bottom of this post. read on…

This album has been produced as a fund raiser for our documentary Love in Bright Landscapes, and was recorded by Salt Studios mobile recording van (any bands reading: their services come recommended) in June 2008 and mixed in July 2009. The album features The Blackeyed Susans (with guest Triffids Graham Lee & Rob McComb), Charles Jenkins, Mick Thomas’ Shackleton, and Diving Bell all performing from McComb’s incredible songbook. Spoken word performer Sean Whelan also read McComb’s poem ‘Behind the Garages of this Country’ with collaborators The Mime Set. The gig was an overwhelming success, closing with of one McComb’s last major compositions, costar’s The Good Life Never Ends, performed by The Blackeyed Susans, available for the first time on this album.

Feedback from some industry/media types who have heard it already has been very positive, chiefly that there’s a tangible sense of atmosphere throughout. And, that in keeping with the full title , there’s a great sense of it capturing an evening with the songs.

Thanks to all those here that supported this project in anyway: it means a great deal. I’ve listened to this album exhaustively during its production and I still love every bar of it. I hope you do too.
