Last fall I decided to make a short CD to sell at shows as a preview for the record that I am currently producing. I had a good friend design the CD cover that you see on the left. Being in a bit of a rush, I hastily named it “The Head and the Heart” after lyrics from my song ‘Seashore’. The first night that I brought the CD’s to a show several people brought to my attention that there is a very well known band called “The Head and the Heart”. I did not know this and realize now that I should have perhaps done a google search of the title before I went ahead with it.
Also, when one copies the CD onto their computer, most media players recognize the 5 song CD as Diana Smith’s “Do You Now”. The songs that play are in fact mine, but they are most often under the titles of Diana Smith’s EP. To take it even further, I found out the other day that someone had bought a CD that did not in fact work….
Believe me, I’m very embarrassed about all of this. It made me realize that there may be other CD’s out there that don’t work. If you happened to have bought a defective CD please comment on this post, tweet at me @dominiquefricot or write on my facebook wall at www.facebook.com/dominiquefricot. I will make sure you receive all of the songs and I’ll even throw in something extra for your troubles.
In other news, I’m down to the last 20 or so of the CD’s, so if anybody is still interested in the train wreck that I’ve just described make sure you come out to one of my next shows.
My very next show is February 1st at the Backstage Lounge on Granville Island in Vancouver.
