Almost ten years ago I put out a 2 CD entitled A Dip in the Ocean and I’m pleased to announce that I have edited, ready for release, a further hour of music from the same evening in Larache, which preceded the two released CDs. It completes the evening’s celebration and is a must for fans of Moroccan Andalus and for those who enjoyed the original release. The recording took place two weeks before 9/11 and captures the innocence of that time and the ecstasy of this type of singing. If I can find the necessary investment I want to try and release it as a maximum quality mp3 CD, fully tracked (which the original wasn’t). This would fit on one disc as opposed to three audio CDs and be significantly cheaper. The question is will people buy an mp3 CD? It can be easily installed into an Ipod or into Itunes. It’s very large for a digital download (although I’m still looking into that). Comments please.

Update as of 3 August 2019: theses recordings will shortly be available on ITunes.
