Once Upon A Village

Go directly to tracks

It took many many months but the album is finally “in the can”.

Some of you who had already downloaded (wrong term!!! I should say “sent via DROPBOX”) the original mixes might hear a difference between the “now” mixes and the “then” mixes. That’s because there IS a difference! I used a bunch of different digital and analog pieces of gear to remix the entire project and I think the tracks sound better. As always, I’m sure you’ll let me know.

If you did purchase last year’s mixes and you would like to have the new ones, please e-mail me with all the info (Name, date of purchase etc) at acostandinos@gmail.com and I’ll re send you the new versions. No charge.

The CD manufacturer who supplies me with the gold CD blanks, claims that they have a life expectancy of 300 years. I’m always intrigued as to how they can make such a claim but I guess we’ll have to take their word for it.

Wouldn’t it be interesting to contact my descendants or Mitsui in 2311 and ask for your money back because the CD is not playing properly on your now super antique contraption called a CD player? I would love to see those facial expressions.

Now THAT would make a good Star Trek episode.

One thing is certain: I did extensive comparative audio tests and to my ears these CDs do sound (very subjectively) better.

As with Romeo & Juliet and The Hunchback, the album comes with a Certificate of Authenticity and a Serial number.

I would have liked to have a blog right here at the site but as we all know, FB changed all that. So if you have any comments, opinions, critiques etc about the album, please post them on my FB page.

Thank you for the visit.
