Friends and family are asking for CD's of my music - so I've decided to go ahead and make an album. 12 songs, I guess? My problem? Between FAWM 2016 and 5090 2016 ALONE, I have a catalog of 80+ songs. All my songs need some mixing, overdubbing, editing...even re-recording, so none of that is a factor in choosing which songs....But seriously..how do I choose? My songs are little bubbles of my soul and each and every one of them is special. I've tried to go with a theme, but I don't want to just do the jazz/blues songs and miss out on the rock, don't want to just do the silly things....want to do another instrumentals. Then there's the collabs that I really enjoyed, but the parts of the collabs that are mine can be finished and flushed out if I"m that attached to the piece.
So, how do I choose what songs go on the first CD? How do you choose?
