May 2023

May was another great month here at the studio. Most projects can’t be talked about yet, but I can talk about a few projects that came out in May.

Before I do that, if you happen to be reading this and will be at the Making Vinyl conference in Minneapolis June 7th/8th, let me know and it would be great to connect.

Speaking of Minneapolis, the debut album from Tommy Stinson’s Cowboys in the Campfire is just days away from being officially released (on June 2nd), although people have already started to receive their vinyl and CD pre-orders. The album which is titled “WRONGER” was not only mastered here, but I also had to dust off my mixing hat for various reasons and mix it here too, with the help of Ian Olvera on most songs, and the song “Souls” was mixed by Duane Lundy at The Lexington Recording Company. You can order a physical copy HERE.

One bigger project that was released in May was the 25th Anniversary Edition of the self-titled album by Rufus Wainwright. It was remastered here at Mystery Room Mastering with 10 bonus tracks. It’s streaming on all the major streaming services, and available in high-resolution for the very first time.

I got to master another album from Chapel Hart that was once again produced by the legendary Jeff Glixman. Their new album “Glory Days” is streaming everywhere now.

The 1989 album “Brother Arab” by Arabian Prince (founding member of N.W.A.) was remastered here with some bonus tracks, and is available on streaming for the first time ever via UMG Catalog.

The 1987 solo debut from Bunny DeBarge from the legendary Motown group DeBarge was remastered here, and is available on the streaming services for the first time ever via UMG Catalog.

Lastly, I’ll leave you with this great video from Malcolm Holcombe for the song “Fill Those Shoes” from the upcoming album ‘Bits & Pieces’ that was mastered here, and available in late June on CD & vinyl which you can purchase from his website HERE.
