Astute observers of Pixels will have noted a lack of activity on my part this week and, perhaps, the week before. This is due to the fact that I was finishing mixing and mastering my next album, an opus ten years in the making, One Man’s Opinion Of Moonlight.
The album will be released on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and all the other streaming services on February 14, 2020. It is a collection of ballads very precious to me from the sixties and seventies, plus one song of my own, performed in the manner of utmost intimacy, just me and a nylon string guitar. It took ten years to get it right and it was worth it.
I am sharing the cover here for the first time anywhere.
The original photo was shot by me. I believe I should do a master class in mirror self-portraits. I apped it a little bit Snapseed, cropped it, and turned it into a sepia print using some other app. I sent it to Barbara duBois who did a wonderful job adding the moons and bringing some color back into the image. It just blew me away when I saw it. I didn’t want to add type to the cover, but you have to these days.
Thank you, Barbara!
