- Recording news, by Mick Box!
"Well I can finally report that we have finished the mixing of the new CD. We found that a good way of doing this was to let Mike Paxman go in the studio for a few days at a time and get most of the mix down with a guy called Mark 'Tufty' Evans. The CD was mixed in it's entirety at Tufty's studio in Wispington Studios, Berkshire, UK. Tufty is someone Mike has known for a long time and he specialises in just mixing. The template for the mixing became Mike and Tufty getting it all together and then the band received CD's of the mixes in the post and made their comments to Mike who then went back in and tweaked them to everybodies satisfaction. Except for me and Bernie who could not wait and we drove up there in my car every Friday to pick ours up. It was a long hard haul of a drive each time to get there on a busy Friday afternoon but well worth it as the journey back we rocked out in the car listening to the mixes which made the return journey so much sweeter and less painful. It was a good way of working because we had the luxury of being able to play the CD on a variety of Hi Fi and Low Fi systems and add comments. The end result is that they all sound FANTASTIC. The Mastering will be completed shortly with any luck. Mike has someone he wants to work with on that and all of his decisions thus far have been spot on so we are happy to go with it. As for the cover we are getting ever closer and I am presently compiling all of the text and lyrics to send to Ioannis in the USA.
'Appy days!
Mick"

Among such stories there are some nice comments about Uriah Heep, as well as Lee Kerslake and Bob Daisley regarding the time they worked with Ozzy. The complete interview is here: http://knac.com/article.asp?ArticleID=5637 .

- Trivia time... recently in Germany a cyclone was reported to be arriving. Its name? "Uriah"! The young presenter at the SAT1 channel added: "After all, it's not easy livin'!". Examples of printed articles about "Uriah" on two German newspapers can be found here:
*** "WAZ" (June 26th): http://www.heeprena.de/SOT/Presse/sturmtief-uriah.jpg
*** "Hamburger Abendblatt" (June 27th): http://www.abendblatt.de/daten/2007/06/27/762311.html
