I honestly wanted this to be the fourth album [and potentially divided into two or three albums], but “Songs of the Winter Château: Book III” remains in it’s infancy…and I had all these alternate guitar tracks on hand.
At this late in the game, I’m not going to be able to crank out an entirely new holiday album.
It’s been a hard year…I’ll try to get back to work on Book III, and release it in 2017…Potentially, I may aim for a shorter album…and maybe you’ll get a Book IV and Book V because of this. Book III is, essentially, supposed to be the final piano holiday album.
On the whole, Yule in Strings is a nice album…Maybe I should have pruned a few tracks away…but, there’s nothing here that is especially hard to listen to.
