Record Store Day Limited Edition Release

On Saturday 17 July, Cloudland Blue Quartet releases “Underground Like Doug McClure” as a limited edition virtual 7″ single for Record Store Day.

It will be deleted at 23:59 on 17 July 2021 – so, if you buy it, please ensure you download the WAV files before the end of the day (UK Time)… [if you accidentally fail to do this, please contact Crispycat – there is a solution!]

Track 1 is the Edward Spark “West End” Remix of this key track from Cloudland Blue Quartet’s 2021 song-based LP, “Sparklemusik”.

Track 2 is a previously unreleased live rehearsal of the song, with extended intro and outro, recorded in August 2019, when live performances of the project were anticipated – in the event, these never happened…

In the true spirit of Record Store Day, the record comes with authentic “vinyl enhancement” and with a price on its head. If you press the WAV files to vinyl, the 7″ single should be designed to play at 33RPM…

“Wrote a song – “Underground Like Doug McClure” – which was deemed “no bad” – the start of the new LP?

We’ll see…

Finished off the day with more musicking, listening back to the demo and it still sounded “ok”…

Which was good…”
