Happy New Year!!
How’s it going? Well, I hope!
QUEEN HIGH STRAIGHT
Things are getting busier and busier as I move toward the release date of QUEEN HIGH STRAIGHT on May 1st!
Firstly, let me tell you that I have approved the test pressings for QUEEN HIGH STRAIGHT. I have 5 of them (10 discs, it’s a double vinyl of course) and I’ve spent the last 3 days going through all of them to be certain that all the music, the levels, the spacing, the tracking listing is correct.
It truly sounds wonderful! I knew this anyway but seeing it revolve on a turn-table is another landmark in the progress of this record!
Please do preorder your copies here: https://thewendyjames.com/store
If you want to own one of 5 Test Pressing packages they are an incredible artifact, a collectors item, then please do, I’ve made them available here:
The deadline for being on the Certificate Of Contributors is looming, artwork has been sent off to the manufacturers and soon they will have to print, I’d say there are about 3 weeks left… the Certificate of Contributors comes with either the Deluxe Vinyl here: or the Deluxe CD here:
Of course the lyrics/mix notes from my recording sessions are still available here.
The official Queen High Straight black t-shirts here.
The official Queen High Straight white t-shirts here.
So…. get whatever you like!!
