Time flies...
A whole summer has come and gone...
and we almost have two records to show for it.

Al's Records and Tapes is back in bidness after taking the year off to hang with the comedians... and so bring on the really crazy people... the recording artists!

Mike J. and I have been working hard to finish up these two records- and they are almost in focus...

Jonathan Burkes- also known affectionately as Boojie, is giving us the goods.
Boojie, Mike and I are cooking up something we are very proud of... something original and badass and well... hard to describe.
And we are finishing up Antonia Romeo's first all girlie girl girlie super neato bodeato record which is called "Just Fina"- and you can see Antonia and Fina here...
and Antonia and Mike here...

Antonia's music is special... and we are really proud to be a part of it because it is so... very much Antonia. It isn't music where you wonder what she is like- her music is what she's like and Mike and I are convinced you will like it.
In the next couple weeks, we will have her site and some samples up...
I am writing this to catch up- Mike reminds me that I have been behind on the blogging...
so now to the stuff that cracks me up- the newest recording artists...
those in The Recording Club! So you know- these kids are our next top models... oops, I'm watching too much tv. But they are hilarious and this year's version of The Recording Club is a step forward. This year, our kids are more on top of it and more determined to finish songs. The past three years has seen the Jack Elliott Music Project give away over $100,000 worth of technology and training.
This
year, through a generous grant from The Johnny Mercer Foundation, more kids will be able to expand their repertoire through digital recording and exposure to computers. And this year, from a musical standpoint, the kids are using the technology AND real instruments like never before to create recordings that will shock and amaze. This is really exciting- it isn't just beats and boasts... this is taking it to another level. Go watch video of last week- think about a young Eddie Hazell on guitar... and soon... the Recording Club will have it's first mix tape up on iTunes... with the benefits going toward buying more computers and getting kids to college.


and here is Alex and his gals... as they start the process of deliberating how to share one set of headphones for four people... while Patrick helps Brit get it right. More soon...
