C19 - The Lockdown Project
Rather than twiddle our thumbs during Lockdown we decided to write some original material and record it as and when possible. This has resulted in a ten track CD of original material which has been professionally recorded, mixed and mastered so it should sound great ... honest!
The CD liner notes explain what the C19 project is by explaining that "C19 is an Alfie Ibbotson project born of the Great Pandemic of 2020 / 2021 to fill the void of rehearsals and gigs. All songs were written by Paul with "performance" in mind. Due to the restrictions placed upon us most of the songs were recorded piecemeal apart from tracks 4 & 6 which were recorded "live" in the studio between lockdowns. Paul, Ian and Tony recorded their individual parts later in the studio.
All songs were recorded at Glen Eldon Studios, St Annes on Sea, England and later mixed and mastered by Dave Archer (the fifth Alfie) in Last Riff Studios, Cincinnati, USA. As well as producing the album Dave also programmed drums and percussion on all tracks except tracks 4 & 6. Thank you Dave for a "masterful" job!"
Proceeds from the CD will be going to Alzheimers research and the CD is available for sale / donation by contacting Paul at firstname.lastname@example.org. The CD costs whatever you want to give. You can even request a copy and pay after you have listened to it. A dodgy marketing strategy you may think, but us Alfie boys are confident in our product, well sort of!
Here is an mp3 of the first track of the album to whet your appetite and loosen your purse strings. The actual album track is of much better sonic quality :-
