Andy Williams passses away aged 84 ...

Andy Williams famous for 'Moon River' has passed. The 1961 song written by Henri Mancini with text from John Mercer has been covered by just about everyone. One of my absolute favourites is the super talented Lady Carol Kidd that recorded the song on Her latest album.

I play that almost daily in our shop but you can also listen & buy it on LINNRecords

Here is a youtube clip of the original ... sung with style ... hands in pockets!

LIVE Sessions @ Peoples & Schmidt

First a huge thanks to everyone that supported us and came to the Maeve O'Boyle LIVE concert last Thursday evening and supported Maeve by buying Her limited edition pre-release USB (MP3, 16 & 24 Bit, Film, PDF booklet).

Brilliant night and Maeve really blew the roof off!

If you took any phots's or video please email them to me and I'll set them up on this Blogg.

We recorded the gig in 24 Bit, so those that bought the USB will soon be able to download onto their USB the recording from the night. (Keep an eye on this Blog for details).

Andy, the super talented Piano player made a few timing misses but for the most was brilliant and if you think this was the first time they had played the new album together LIVE ,,, WAL ...

So it may not include all the songs but hopefully enough so you can listen back and re-live, what was a great evening.

For those that missed it ... shame on you ... just kidding! For those that missed it I have a few signed USB's for sale (250Kr). Email me at martin@peoplesandschmidt.com

With your support we can have many more fantastic evenings ...

Big thanks to Andy (Gothenburg) that came with several friends and wrote this delightful email to me the day after:

Dear Martin

Thank-you for your hospitality, and for organising such a fantastic gig.   It was an absolute pleasure to come and listen to Maeve sharing her new album with us first in Gothenburg  !….what a touching moment, and what a cracking album.    

All my friends also enjoyed the night….not your average Thursday night in Gothenburg..they didn't realise what a special evening it was going to be ...they were quite blown away and will be talking about this for quite some time I feel   !!

Ryan MacDowell was rather a star as well I think ….I loved his single

I will pop in and see you soon…..after all…..I will need something on which to play my signed 24bit audio master album now I have it !



Ok this is not music related but I just love the term .. V.U.C.A

''.. But running a business in a  todays VUCA environment laying 3-5 year plans is high risk:) ''

V.U.C.A. (pronounced voo – ka) is an acronym for an environment that is dominated by:

Volatility – where things change fast but not in a predictable trend or repeatable pattern.
Uncertainty – where major “disruptive” changes occur frequently. In this environment, the past is not an accurate predictor of the future, and identifying and preparing for “what will come next” is extremely difficult.
Complexity — where there are numerous difficult-to-understand causes and mitigating factors involved in a problem.
Ambiguity – where the causes and the “who, what, where, when, how, and why” behind the things that are happening are unclear and hard to ascertain.
