albums start arriving today

MARC7 members should start getting their signed CDs in the mail today -- did anyone get theirs yet? For those MARC7 members in Europe, allow until next Monday for arrival (they're coming via USPS). If you have questions about your MARC7 order drop us a line.  Daniel will answer questions. In the meantime your rants and raves are invited. Send us a picture (info at maktub dot com) of you and your new CD and we'll post it on the site. The CD is as green as they gets nowadays -- recycled chipboard packaging and edible/smokable shrinkwrap. Enjoy.

    Got my copy about 3:00 pm CST today and I am on my 2nd playing of the album. Initial tracks that caught my attention are: Leave a Little, Nothing Stays the Same and Words are Not Enough. The rest of the tracks are growing on me the 2nd time around. I like the fact it has a "live recording" feel - great energy. Now I just need to find a good place for my MARC7 member stickers !:)

    Hey Hal -- good to hear you got your CD today. I'm most curious what people think after a handful of listens. Enjoy it!

    The disk arrived today, and I haven't been able to open it yet.Suddenly I'm thinking, maybe I won't. Maybe I'll just buy a run of the mill copy and open that. Beautiful package, btw. But it's the relative uniqueness that has warped my brain.

    Yes! It was on top of my stack of mail. I'm on my first listen and already love the groove. I'm listening to Reggie belting out "give me death" right now. Good stuff! But I've got many more listens over the next few days before it becomes part of me. I'm just happy to be holding the disc. Great job, guys!

    Mmm. Just puffing away on the shrinkwrap now. Piquant, nutty, and vaguely vegetal. Cheers fellas! Tight stuff.

    Perfect timing... Last night I went out to ye olde Tin Hat with my friend Jessie, with whom I attended many a Maktub show back in Tucson, and we reminisced about our desert adventures over PBR and Country Mike's delectable pulled pork sandwiches. We went back to my place with a few Tecate tallboys and GUESS what was in my mailbox? I threw on my brown XXL Maktub nightshirt I picked up at McLeod the other day and we had ourselves a delightful little listening party... several morning spins in my MP3 player later, the new album takes its place in regular rotation. Beautiful work, guys. My fifty bucks was well invested. Bring on MARC8, and don't let Fisk and Hallerman off the payroll yet!

    Ahhh, sweet Tucson. Good to hear you're enjoying the tunes, Matt. PBR, Tecates, tallboys, pulled pork ... I think you have a future as a food columnist. Some day we'll have to bring some of these Maktub tunes back to Alaska (Fairbanks for you, Anchorage for me). And Reggie has always wanted to take the band to Montana. AK and MT -- that where all the good people reside. See you around Seattle! P.S. Lil' Gee -- I'll look into cup caddies:laugh:

    I've listened about 8 times now, FABULOUS! I'm all tickled inside that I was allowed to be a (very small) part of your art. :D

    WHAT IS *YOUR* FAVORITE TRACK? I'm currently grooving on Nothing Stays the Same. Although I think nothing will ever top Internal Light from Subtle Ways, possibly the best song ever written. Congrats on another great album guys!

    Thanks for all the feedback. I'll have to think about my fav track. I like them all, but for now I'll say I had different favs before and after Steve mixed it. Someday I'll understand how Steve does it! :blush:
