Midwinter Jicker 20th Anniversary Edition

It’s the re-make/re-model of our album from 2001. Projected release date: December 1, 2021.

Featuring 11 of the 12 original songs, plus Ballad of Davids Nelson from 2003.

Earlier in 2021, Patrick Short and Kevin Laurila of mediaunion fired up Patrick’s old Yamaha MD8 recording deck – it hadn’t been turned on since 2004, but it worked, and we downloaded the individual tracks from 2001’s Midwinter Jicker album into our computers. About 120 human-hours later, and using 2021 digital tools, we may have what the album should have sounded like! With the help of the good ears of Margie and Pete Boulé, we’ve crafted (re-crafted?) something very special – it’s re-mastering at a whole new level.

The lyrics are available from this page or you can hit each title for the individual track lyrics. Note that you will need to use your browser’s back button to come back from the lyrics pages.
