I sure hope he mentions his song naming process when he writes in the liner notes about Nothing Left To Take. :mrgreen:

Bonnie,

Wasn't your suggested song title "Like A Song I'd Like to Crank You"? ;) (Even though EP blamed me for that!) :D

A great looking list - all of the songs here that I have heard so far are wonderful.

One question - IIRC there was talk at one point that Rattle My Cage might make the cut. Did I dream that, or did it just not make it to the final list ?

I just found that you can listen to all of the new songs if you go to the lyric list, select a song lyric from the new album (like Annalee) and look to the right side of the page and... there you go... Here's the link to get you there quicker:

http://ellispaul.com/index.php?page=son ... splay=4273

now access to all the new songs... yea.

See y'all later.

Advanced copies mailed this week. WOOOHOOOO!

Have to be careful blasting it down here as the houses are on top of each other, or on the other hand, maybe we'll pick up a new fan or two by blasting!!! It's worth a shot! :D

Anyone know the official release date?
How about the unofficial release date?
Wonder when Ellis will have them with him on tour?

Blast it Monica!!! :wink:

hey all,

oh, man! i can't wait to get the new album! are these advance copies being sent out to everyone who donated to the production? i, unfortunately, could only donate at the lowest level so i can't remember if that level included getting the album early or not...

on a side note...i was in the local hallmark today and was thrilled to hear them playing ellis paul's "the speed of trees" album in the store...when i went to pay for my purchases i commented to the clerk that it was great to hear such great music playing in the store...he told me that he was a big ellis paul fan and that he plays his music pretty frequently and that i was the first person to comment on this...he then went on to say something like,

"i always thought ellis would get famous. it's too bad that it never happened for him."

i said, "have you heard anything from his new album yet? don't count him out just yet. i think that big things are in store for him with this album. big things."

hope everyone's well,

john

Holding the new CD in my hands ... well not exactly, seeing as I'm typing, but it's in "da house!" The photography is AWESOME. Karen, do you know where the photos were taken?

I have been up since 3:00 a.m. getting in some OT, with 7 hours under my belt aready, grocery shopping done, house cleaned, laundry folded and put away, and heading back into the work routine for 4 more hours.

I am planning on crawling into bed when all is said and done with the day, with my CD player and headphones, and having Ellis serenade me to sleep!

Have fun at the show tomorrow night for those of you going!

Monica,

According to Jack Looney, the photos were all shot in Virginia - mostly in Charlottesville and central Virginia. I'll try to get a few more details.

I got my copy this weekend! I was so happy to have it. Took a long ride from Boston to Maine. Enjoyed the CD the whole trip. I had forgotten how much I loved Rose Tattoo. So, now I cannot wait for the Harbor Cruise in Boston.

hey everyone,

i was also surprised to receive my copy of the new record in the mail this weekend and i am simply blown away by the scope and range of this album...from the BEAUTIFUL packaging and lyric booklet/liner notes to the brilliant production and performances found within. after about 5 or 6 straight listens, in my opinion this album is very different for ellis and its sonic textures, blanketed vocals, scattered landscapes and back road stories compile what is ellis' most diverse sounding set of songs yet...a contemporary folk masterpiece.

while i don't have the time to delve into specific thoughts on each song, for now i'll just say that "the day after everything changed" is a stunning, breathtaking and brilliant new album...i hope that many, many more people are brought to the music of ellis paul with its release...

thanks ellis!

Well our copy has winged its way across the Atlantic and landed in the letterbox this morning. Stunning photography and packaging!

Can't wait to listen to it on the CD player - ours (or should I say Richard's) has valve amps, it picks out instruments so clearly and it'll be wonderful to listen to it on that.

Yippee!

My copy was waiting for me when I got home last night. I think maybe I scared my new neighbor that I met by the mailboxes...I was a little too excited!

Had my first listen on the train ride in this morning, had to try really hard not to bust out in song!

I like what I've heard so far, Annalee sounds amazing! I'll have to listen a few more times before I can give any more comments though.

Jeannie,

Pinch me. :-)

I've been listening to the new CD non-stop now for nearly 48 hours.....there isn't ONE track that I want to skip over. The CD is just fabulous from beginning to end. Find myself singing LOUDLY on "sometime someplace" and having my breath taken away by Antje's voice on "waking up to me". Oh my. And the strings on "paper dolls" give me goose bumps. Just a beautiful, beautiful album inside and out!

Oh! According to Ellis, the photo in the abandoned tunnel was taken near Crozet at what was - at one time - the longest tunnel in the U.S. The photography is simply gorgeous! And no freakin' jewel box to contend with! It's perfect, I tell 'ya! :)

Folks,

A bit more detail about two of the CD photos from Jack Looney:

1. The large window is in a Civil War era B&B in Orange, VA - pretty close to Robert Duvall's home.
2. The shot of the abandoned car was taken in Albemarle County -- closer to Charlottesville.

Michael and I (mostly I) have been listening to the new CD since it arrived last week. My vote goes to Rose Tattoo and Paper Dolls--amazing.

I really loved Waking Up to You on the Summer Night in Georgia CD, better than Waking Up to Me on this one--I think the kind of spooky sound at the beginning on the new CD creeps me out a little. Still, I really like that Ellis has come into his own in the love song business. He had Words, Home, and a few others, but Rose Tattoo and Waking Up to You have heartwrenchingly beautiful lyrics. Must be his muse!!

If anyone will be at High Noon Saloon in September, we'll be wearing our pins--would love to meet you!

Ethereal, yes, I can see that. Maybe I thought "spooky" cuz I'm going to the Wonewoc Spiritualist Camp tomorrow and it's been on my mind-dunno. I do know that it's great to have a new CD to ponder, though.

I think that A Summer Night in Georgia is one of the best live albums ever. Love having Calendar Man any time I please!

Just wanted to say that the new CD is excellent. I may never take it out of the car's CD player. First EP song I ever heard was The World Ain't Slowing Down. I was hooked from then on. Heaven's Wherever You Are had the same effect on me that The World did. Every song on the CD is a winner. Can't wait to hear them live in St Louis in December.

Folks,

A little tidbit about one of my favorite songs on the new CD "sometime someplace" - a song that prompts me to crank the volume up and sing loudly! :-) ("Like a song I'd like to crank you.") ;-)

Anyway.....Miller's is a well-known bar/music venue in Charlottesville....and the line about a ghost of a horn player in the corner is a reference to LeRoi Moore - Dave Matthews Band saxophonist from Charlottesville who tragically died last August as a result of injuries he received in an ATV accident. LeRoi and Dave met when Dave tended bar at Miller's....and it was during that time (1991) that Dave founded the band.

care,

For now the new CD will be available at shows only. It may be a month or so before it willbe available on the website and other online outlets. I know it's tough to be patient.....but it will so be worth the wait! :)

In the meantime, you can listen to a few songs on Radio Free Ellis or on American Songspace.

Way back when we were discussing what we'd like to see on the new CD we said....
So, in the new unrecorded song category we have…

Rose in a Cage
Cotton’s Burning
If I Could Catch the Rain
The Day the Levee Broke (aka Hurricane Angel)
Where the River Rolls (aka River Road?)
Once Upon a Summertime
The Day After Everything Changed
Little Wood Guitar
Calendar Man
Nothing Left to Take (like how I slipped the alternative title in there?)
Snow in Austin
Paper Dolls
Waking Up to Me
Jamiel Shaw

In the old but as yet unrecorded song category we have…

Rattle My Cage
Everything’s Broken
Rainy Season
Bryant Street

In the highly desired cover tune category we have…

Let it Be (w/ Flynn)
I Can’t Make You Love Me (just Ellis and guitar)
The Night Hank Williams Came to Town
Walking After Midnight/Change (Sam Baker Medley)
Minor Key (w/ Antje)
Two Bends in the Road
No Sympathy
Dear Prudence
Hard Travelin'

And in the brand new "not in a million years" and/or previously recorded but we’d like to hear it differently category...

This Old Car (live)
Welcome Home to Maine (just Ellis and Guitar)

Any thoughts about naming this perfect creation of ours, I mean Ellis'?


so I thought that it would be interesting to see which of 'our' choices made it so I've highlighted those. We didn't do so bad did we?
