Here's where we go to kick back after the races with our pals. Pour a tall one, punch a few buttons on the jukebox, and relax...

Citykings on iPod

Postby draglist » Sun Sep 10, 2006 1:34 am

I just did something strange, but wonderful. I'm ripping Compact Discs to MP3s on the computer. I'm pulling them into the iPod system. It has a feature that recognizes the artist, album, and track names for newer CDs. For older CDs, you can click a link to go to the web and find the info. Or if it is not on the web, you can enter it in and send it to the web for others to use. I'm doing the Citykings CD right now. It did not come up with the track names automatically, so I clicked to find them on the web and up they came!!! That's so cool... somebody out there liked it enough to put it up on this service. Now we'll have the Citykings wherever we go... bp

That's GREAT, BP!!!! I think when we signed up with CDBaby.com they did that service for us and essentially forwarded all of our data to a whole bunch of sites. Our CD is getting played a lot in Europe from what we gather. The song "Follow The Leader" has been downloaded a few times...somebody likes it...this thread is a most delightful surprize to come home to. The Citykings are alive and well and working up new material. Thanks for this info! I will pass it on to Scott...he's got an iPod stereo, this thing he hooks his iPod into and it plays great stereo...will miracles never cease? WC1

That's fantastic, John. I am ripping our entire collection, so I'm listening to dozens of CDs as I do it. I have to say -- without embellishment -- that the Citykings CD stands up to anything in my collection, both in quality of music and quality of sound. That's no BS. I rank it up there with offerings from Mark Knopfler, James Taylor, Elvis Costello's torch songs, etc. It's fantastic and wears well after several listenings. bp

I really don't know how to say Thank You for that post, BP. You and the Doc and the fine folks here have supported the Citykings' music ever since you first heard it. The band is still together, practicing on Thursday nights with me on keyboards now and Kathleen a full-time member on backup vocals, and we're planning the second CD. This one, however, still has not broken through the wall and gotten to where we think it needs to get to before we begin the next project. We'll keep working on it...Thanks so much! WC1
