Why You Should Read the Liner Notes on All Your CDs

By PaulT / December 19, 2017

Spinning some tunes up at Koinonia last night, I popped in Todd’s copy of Kim Hill’s Surrounded by Love. Great CD for background music since it’s not too imposing. Hill’s style is basically 90s Country, which is fine by me since that was the only decade I really got into country music. We’ve played it a few times before, but this was the first time I had a good chance to look through the liner notes of the CD (a habit that I argue we must all do).

In doing so, I noticed something a little interesting and then marched over to Todd to see if he had bothered to do the same since it was his CD. Let’s just say I’m in the minority on this habit. Because it was a bit of a surprise to Todd that there were two names of interest on the liner notes: Michael Hodge & Michael Mellett. Both were thanked by the producer, so I’m assuming they recorded some overdubs of the live recordings.

If you’re just stalled for something good to buy, I recommend this one – tracks 5 & 6 were good enough for me to repeat last night. Cheapskate that I am, though, I’m looking through the digital download options for a few new tunes to pick up.
