With the words of Geoff Allan from Cava www.cavasound.com still warm in my ears the task of making a sound quality based selection of tracks for a CD has changed.
As many tracks as possible will now be kept. Only those which might be a strain on the listener - well that is how I will describe them - will be removed. And the end result may be more than one CD.
With this decision some of the better lyrics, which might have got the chop, will now be retained. That some of them were spontaneously liked has also turned this task into a much more interesting and pleasurable experience. Who knows how long that will last.
