What? Two days after the newsletter, and no buzz about the upcoming NEW CD?!?!? For those of you who couldn't make the NJ performances of Midsummer Night's Dream, GrooveLily composed all the music, and original lyrics for two songs (the others are either instrumental or use the dialogue as lyrics). Oh, the agony of having to wait until fall
The Revolution sings anew,

Looking forward to hearing stuff from the show during the mid-west gigs this August, since I couldn't make it out to NJ for the production. Maybe we'll get to hear some preview stuff from the upcoming Sleepy Beauty at these gig, huh, huh?

From the PS Classic Website News Dated Janaury 1, 2007
Finally, in the spirit of holiday cheer, two years ago we had the fun of unveiling the new GrooveLily CD, STRIKING 12, in time for the holidays. We’re now readying the next GrooveLily release, and although we’ll miss the holidays by a month, we thought we’d sing its praises here. Entitled A LITTLE MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S MUSIC, it consists of original songs and suites from the unique production of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream in which GrooveLily co-starred last spring at Paper Mill Playhouse and the McCarter Theatre. The CD will get an early web release here at the PS Classics website in February 2007 (to coincide with a GrooveLily concert at the McCarter) and be available in stores the second week of April. Brendan Milburn of GrooveLily described the CD at one point as “some of the most lyrical, lovely, groovy, rhythmically complex and unfettered music we've ever made"; we’ve heard it, and he’s not being immodest – just accurate! It’s a unique, magical treat that we’re proud to be unveiling here at PS Classics.

WOW! I was wondering if PS Classics was picking up the 'Midsummer' CD. Now, why didn't I think to check out their website? A little further down on that page they say that 'Striking 12' is their biggest webseller. Way to go GrooveLily!
See you at the CD release concert on February 3rd.

Bad news for those waiting on PS Classics... from their web site:
The official street date for our cast recording of COMPANY has been pushed back a week, to February 20th. (Amazon doesn’t even up have the update yet; you’re hearing it here first.) We’re hoping to have product in our offices this Friday, the 9th, and that’s our new intended webrelease date. We’re holding off starting sales on GrooveLily’s new CD, A LITTLE MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S MUSIC, until Friday as well, so folks won’t have to incur double shipping costs. In the meantime, there are a couple of soundclips up for both albums
If you can't wait... call me and I'll play you a bit over the phone!

Good news for those waiting on PS Classics...
Midsummer's Night Music is now available! For those of you who haven't had a chance to hear this yet...RUSH to this site and order a copy (or several!) right away. I think this is the most impressive Groovelily CD to date. Much as I miss the days when Groovelily was playing gigs all over the place, if this is the direction the music's taking from their theater focus, it's well worth the sacrifice of not being able to see them as often. Great, GREAT stuff!

David is right--I am addicted. Just bought three more copies. . .
GrooveLily will change the world (again) with this one. . .

Way to go, Sharon! I bought three extra copies at the concert, figuring they would probably make great Valentine's Day gifts. Now that I've heard the CD, I know it was a wise decision. They went to female Petal Pushers unable to make it to the concert.
I just got e-mail notice of the CD's availability, and John Nyman's, David's and Adam's praise of this CD was listed along with Tina Landau's.
YES... This is a Great CD! Good work VBG!

Ordered one last night, and am so anxious to receive it. We haven't seen GrooveLily in so long - I think I'm going through withdrawals.
Hi Sharon and Sammie.

Hi Dave. You will be enthralled when you receive this CD. It is unlike most music made for plays, and yet, it tells a most amazing story. It is GrooveLily, but it is a side step in a most wondrous direction.
