    The Latest on Cy's New CD and Website

    Hey Gang,

    This is to update you on the state of things Curnin.

    First, the CD is currently available for order on CD Baby. This is sort of an advance situation for folks in the know here on the message board, since we have changed our official release date to November 6th.

    www.cdbaby.com/cycurnin

    Those of you who contacted me earlier this week were able to pre-order yesterday. If you got a message from CD Baby saying the CD was on backorder, rest assured they have been sent more inventory and your order will likely be processed today, as it was supposed to be.

    Cy's website has been delayed a bit longer while we work out some glitches. The new roll out date is Tuesday, November 6th. This information appears on his myspace page as well. I'll post something here when it's ready.

    When the site is complete next week, you will be able to buy CDs there too, including autographed CDs (which will cost a bit extra, due to logistics, etc.). Hopefully just a few weeks from now there will be cool merchandise available, just in time for your holiday shopping needs.

    You are able to listen to very long song-snippets on the cdbaby.com page. After the first listen i think that
    "The world will always turn" could be my favourit song followed by a very powerfull recording of "Remember me when I am gone".

    CD Baby Update

    CD Baby has received more stock, so if you've placed an order, it should be taken care of now.

    Just gave this my first listen, Heimo!!

    My early faves are:

    "Falling Apart Together"

    "Damned If You Do"

    I don't "go through channels." I dig my own....

    I listened to most of the tracks on CD Baby. They are good songs that really feature Cy's voice. And it's a good album with good songs.

    But it isn't backed by The Fixx. I was kind of getting bored. I thought Cy's previous album was better because it had good musicians with good instrumental arrangements. (IMHO)

    My stand out tracks:

    "Returning Sun" - title track

    "Falling Apart Together" - I heard that in Milwaukee. Better as a Fixx song. I hope it's on their next album as well.

    "Remember Me When I'm Gone" - Jeanette Obstoj, Fixx songwriter from back ago wrote the lyrics. May also end up as a Fixx song, I hope

    CD Baby customer service

    I don't do much online ordering, so call me naive, but is this a normal response? I don't remember ever receiving any kind of 'thank you' note from any company about anything I've ever ordered before. I thought it was very original, this is what they included in the confirmation order.

    "Your CDs have been gently taken from our CD Baby shelves with
    sterilized contamination-free gloves and placed onto a satin pillow.

    A team of 50 employees inspected your CDs and polished them to make
    sure they were in the best possible condition before mailing.

    Our packing specialist from Japan lit a candle and a hush fell over
    the crowd as he put your CDs into the finest gold-lined box that money
    can buy.

    We all had a wonderful celebration afterwards and the whole party
    marched down the street to the post office where the entire town of
    Portland waved "Bon Voyage!" to your package, on its way to you, in
    our private CD Baby jet on this day, Wednesday, October 31st.

    I hope you had a wonderful time shopping at CD Baby. We sure did.
    Your picture is on our wall as "Customer of the Year." We're all
    exhausted but can't wait for you to come back to CDBABY.COM!!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    Sigh..."
    I am the winner in any event.

    Queen,

    I LOVE CD BABY just for that very thing!

    You always talk to/email a HUMAN and their emails are very funny. Make me laugh, and I will follow you anywhere.

    Oh yeah, and we get to hear !!Cy's new stuff!! -- what could be better than that?

    Tara Lyn

    P.S. I am waiting to hear the CD and not going to CD baby to listen to snippets. I can wait to hear the whole thing all at once when I can give it the attention it so rightly deserves!
    You know me, I'm the dark horse that just might win the race.

    Autographed CD's? Ack, I wish I had known...oh well, I hope Cy will be willing to sign his solo CD if there's a meet and greet in Nevada.

    I too will wait till the album arrives to decide on my favorite, but of the songs I've heard on MySpace & cycurnin.com, We Might Find It is my favorite. I'll have to see if that changes!

    Speaking of Jeanette Obstoj, does anyone know if she wrote RMWIG with Cy in mind, or is it about herself? The words always reminded me of him, like the eyes, etc. I was very surprised to find out he didn't write it.
    Maybe on course to the best yet!

    The mp3's are available for download on CD Baby. I have not downloaded them myself.

    They have been submitted to other major download sites, such as iTunes, but it takes some time for them to become available. Rather than wait and hold back the album release for whatever amount of time that could be, we decided to make it available now. Folks have been waiting patiently for new material for some time.

    Sorry the release bored you, Dejapete. IMHO, it would be more enlightened to give it a full listen before giving a verdict and suggesting that they need to be redone as Fixx tunes. That will not happen, by the way...so I hope these recordings will grow on you in time. If you would like to discuss this at length, let's take the discussion off board.

    I will do that. I apologize for being hasty in my judgement.

    That's cool, Pete. I think folks who approach the record with an open mind will probably enjoy it the most. It's definitely not a Fixx record, and it's not intended or pretending to be.

    I would hope that all of the guys feel encouraged to exercise their creativity and express themselves beyond their fabulous Fixx work. Just watching Jamie jam with everyone from Nick Harper to sherpas on Everest Rocks reminded me of that. I have no doubt that the next time they all get in the studio together they will blow the doors off. That's why we love them, right?

    No need to apologize

    Hello Dejapete,

    I don't think you need to apologize. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. I personally don't like snippets only because it gives you part of the picture.

    Anyway, I just wanted to say to anyone that has done so, Cy's first album Mayfly is excellent.

    Dejapete, we always like your insights into things keep on rocking in the free world

    Two more questions on cy's cd:

    1. Will there be a single?
    2. Can we expect some more songs that are not released on the cd for downloading?

    Does anyone know?

    Stay tuned + take care!
