Nice Cuts (Voting)

The voting for selections on the next record “Nice Cuts” is complete. Thanks to everyone who voted. I dunno if it’s right to call it a ‘greatest hits’ record, but that seems to be the common term of art, so for those of you not clued in? It’s a ‘Greatest Hits!’ record. Actually, if it didn’t sound so bloody pretentious, I’d have called it a ‘Retrospective’. But to do that I’d have to hang with the kind of people who refer to movies as ‘the cinema’.

And the winnahs are:

  1. You Are Loved (Positive) 6:00
  2. Why Don’t You Come In? (Positive) 4:08
  3. On My Way Home (Positive) 2:51
  4. Paul’s Story (Positive) 5:56
  5. What A Wonderful World (Superpower) 4:44
  6. Shy (Superpower) 3:39
  7. Hey Johnny! (Superpower)  2:55
  8. Open Your Eyes (Part II)  (Compartments)  7:30
  9. Too Far (Balance) 3:39
  10. Money (Balance) 3:47
  11. Matters Of The Heart (Balance) 6:25
  12. Teflon (Home) 3:57
  13. Suicide In A Hurry (Home) 4:36
  14. The Best Friend I Ever Had (Home) 5:23

Nice Cuts should be available November 1st 2009 at, Amazon and iTunes; just in time for your Christmas shopping (hint, hint!)

To celebrate, we’re doing a new video called Nice Cuts:An Introduction To JCHMusic. The video will include snippets from each of these songs plus some bits to show off the new album Beautiful Sounds.

A Note On ‘Choice’
One takes a marketing risk letting fans choose. You guys did a great job, but frankly, the ones chosen are not necessarily the ones I would’ve chosen in all cases. So there are one or two selections that I substituted for the ones near the bottom of the voting list. In other words, I replaced the 13th and 14th on the list for two songs that I thought better fleshed out a representation of my catalogue. I did this because the actual ‘winning’ songs were stylistically similar to some already represented (in other words, a couple more ‘angry at your ex-wife numbers.)
