Greetings dear listeners,

Just a quick update to say that Live From Nowhere Volume Three was mixed and mastered a while back, but we’re still waiting on the finished copies from the manufacturer. 

Wait, wait, wait.

Last year, give or take, we released four projects:

Snow Angels
Live From Nowhere Volume Two
Discount Fireworks
The Trumpet Child

This year, it’s all we can do to get one out the door.

We apologize that this one has taken so long. Thanks for your patience (and for the many notes of encouragement you’ve sent over the past several months). 

We should have them hopefully soon, and when they arrive, we’ll get them mailed out pronto. 

We thought about posting up a few teasers from Live From Nowhere Volume Three, but we decided to just let the thing land in the mailbox the old-fashioned way. All at once.

We had our touring sound engineer, Dave Foreman, aka Juicy, do the mixes on this one, so you’re getting the real thing, real snapshots of what actually happened by the engineer who was mixing the concerts at the time. Michael Wilson contributed a beautiful cover photo, and Bill Ivester passed along a couple of his concert photos once again. Owen Brock put the package together. We think you’re gonna like it. Stay tuned.

In the meanwhile, there are still plenty of opportunities to catch the (five-piece) band outdoors this summer.

We’ve also begun work on our first few Over the Rhine songbooks, long overdue, so hopefully those will be available later this year as well.

We’ll send a real letter along one of these days with much more, but wanted to let you know a little of the latest.

For now, 1000 blessings,

Over the Rhine
