Title: Porter and Stout CD Review!
Post by: Lady Alchemy on May 28, 2008, 09:03:20 PM
I would like to congratulate "Porter and Stout" on the great review of their "Treasures" CD in the latest issue of Renaissance Magazine.  I was so very happy to see them getting national publicity :D  I, myself, love this CD as well and still listen to it at least twice a week.

By the way, they also reviewed "Cast In Bronze".  It got an okay review, but they really liked "Porter and Stout".

Yes, nice reviews.  If you check the byline, you'll see the review was written by our own GypsyWriter!  So congrats on being published, GW.  And a big Huzzah for Porter and Stout.  I love that CD, too.

Huzzah!  Well done, gentlemen!  I, too, have that CD and our very own "Pittsburgh (renfaire) Pirates" often sing me to school and back.

They kept talking about it during TN ren but the issue didn't make to the newstand till the end of faire. I did get their Live Pud CD, Three Sheets to the wind.

A big Hoozzah to P & S.  I hope they sell a bunch.  Barb does a great job of capturing the experience of the CDs she reviews.

Thanks Prof M and Terry for the very kind kudos!  I'm happy to know everyone is pleased with the positive review.  I sure enjoyed listening to the CD for weeks in preparation--it was a lot of fun.  I'm really in need of a pub sing now!

Good thing faire is just a few weeks away....

You don't have to wait that long.  Join us at the Harp & Fiddle on June 6.  Terry's singing.

Too dangerous for me.  Try Claude Cooper from Cleveland

I don't think a RenFaire is the right venue for the bells--but it was an amazing performance.  It just doesn't translate well to CD.

Thanks, as always, for your support and kind words!

If I ever catch kleptomaniac Claude Cooper from Cleveland who copped my clean copper clappers from the closet….

I'll clobber him!

To reclaim your clean copper clappers from the kleptomaniac called "Cleveland Claude" you must carefully cajole his cooperation!
