Here's the Compact Disc edition of the 2021 version of "Disillusioned". It comes in a classic CD jewel case with a 6 panel double gate fold CD booklet with all new artwork throughout, plus an additional 4 panel lyric CD booklet.

There is also a version available that's autographed by hand in silver metallic ink by Thomas on the band portrait page of the double gatefold CD booklet.

Here's to your fierce disillusionment...

I've decided to remain faithful to the original line up of songs for the new remastered/remixed "Disillusioned" Praise Of Folly album. I have 3 new songs recorded that I was planning to add to the original line up of tracks but ultimately last weekend after listening to all the tracks together I felt that the new tracks stylistically seem somewhat out of place juxtaposed next to the original songs.

Honestly the remastering and partial remixing of the original tracks is really dramatically improved over the original 1995 CD versions. This isn't the typical remastered album where if you listen really carefully you'll hear a very subtle improvement. The bass response most particularly in the drums and the clarity of the treble tone in the vocals/ guitars is very noticeably improved over the original tracks. Also, the cover and packaging artwork for the CD version in particular is all new and very beautiful in a 6 panel double gatefold booklet, plus a 4 panel lyric sheet booklet.

The image here in this post is of the antique piano that was the main instrument I used in the recording of one of the new Praise Of Folly songs. This piano is well over 100 years old from the 1880's and has a wonderful vintage tone with creeking piano hammers and keys. I'm hoping to have the time in the not too distant future to combine the 3 new Folly songs I've recorded with 4+ more for a new Folly album!

The new 2021 version of the "Disillusioned" album will be available on BandCamp in 2 days--Friday October 22nd just in time for Halloween playlists! + Cathedral 13 internet radio + Out ov the Coffin Decayed Lace Radio
