Randy, sent you an email. Let me know if you got it.
It would be fun to get everyone together again.
I'll check with Bob to see if he plans to be out this way this year.
No I didn't get the email you sent. Did you have the right address?
Try again to re-send it.
Randy, you sent me a copy of the production. Really something! Thanks again.
For me many Q's about the works remain, however. We are RB fans for various reasons, and the history and inspiration behind things often prove as interesting as the works themselves. Same with this album.
IE, Any details to share on the Where, Why, When, How, etc. of the album? This could be from Randy, Bob, or Dennis. I know many here would appreciate the story that brought the Dark Carnival music into existence.
It has the stuff of a musical in its composition.
Actually, the entire album should be released on CD. As many as possible of the original musicians should get together and record "The Lake" as a bonus track. It should include liner notes with such things as "then and now" pictures and a history of the inspiration of the music and interesting things about recording it.
It would be really great if all of us who worked on the album could get together for a reunion and record "THE LAKE" song....
I got another email from Bob, and he wants no more "FREEBIES" given out of the album, He's trying to find a label to re-release it.
So your's are the last free ones that I made.
Let's hope it will be on CD soon, if the response is high from people that want it.
Thanks for all the interest in
This is Dennis Pfister, I wrote the music to a number of the songs on the "October Country". Larry Delinger and Bill Howe wrote the rest. Bob Jacobs wrote all the words.
You don't happen to remember, or presently know the wherabouts, of Bill Howe who wrote the music to the title song "October Country". I have lost track of him over the years.
Randy says the only one for whom he has an email address is Bob Jacobs.
Reading Bob Jacobs' new book RAY AND ME: MY FIFTY YEAR LOVE AFFAIR WITH RAY BRADBURY got me thinking about his 1969 LP of Bradbury-themed songs, DARK CARNIVAL, an album I purchased when it first was released (and which I still have a copy of). Three of the songs from the album are on YouTube. They are "Homecoming", "October Country", and "The Illustrated Man", and links to those three songs can be accessed below. The baroque-style music is a product of its time, but I still find the songs and music to be very enjoyable and interesting. The album has become a scarce and expensive collector's item, highly sought by Ray Bradbury collectors.
