NOW the vinyl manufacturing’s all set up for the forthcoming live album, I need to get the ‘parts’ – gatefold sleeve and vinyl label artwork as well as the audio master files – finalised and sent off to the manufacturer asap.
Today’s job is the labels for the centre of each record – a smoky white-based label for the translucent blue disc, and a smoky blue-based label for the translucent white disc.
There’s a fair amount of work – standard copyright text in a circle round the edge, song titles and timings, logos, catalogue numbers and more. Fiddly, and takes a while.
Someone in the village had asked me to do a photo job with their grand kids and was having a job trying down when they were gonna be around. A phone call earlier asked if today would be possible, so early afternoon I pack my gear and spend an hour or two taking photos.
Back home I print out proofs of the vinyl label art for checking then sort out the photos form this afternoon and send off a selection of lo-res images for approval.
While working on the images, Margaret gets a call from Betty inviting us along for an aperitif and asking if we fancy joining them for dinner at the local pub. We’d love to 🙂
We enjoy a few drinks then make our way to the pub where we have a lovely meal and a relaxed evening catching up with our pals.
