Today, I am an Album!

Courtesy of Zero Hour Records -- the world's greatest record label -- The Floor Models have finally gone legit.

Yes, The Album We Never Made© has actually, finally, been made.

And here's the new and improved back cover art to prove it.

I should add that I haven't yet gotten my physical copies yet -- they're winging their way from Australia as of this writing -- which means I haven't seen all the cool new inside art. I can't wait, obviously.

In any event, when I began the long strange trip that was compiling the CD, I never in a million years expected that this would be the end result. It's amazingly gratifying, obviously; I always thought this music had some merit and deserved a wider hearing, but the fact that somebody else agreed and went to the trouble of actually releasing it is just so great that I still occasionally have to pinch myself to remember that it's really happening.

I wish Andy had lived to see it, though. He was really the most true believer of all of us, if truth be told.

Let Us Now Praise Famous Floor Models

Andy and Gerry onstage at Folk City.

An extremely gay me, relaxing between shows in my apartment on Bleecker, across the street from Kenny's Castaways.

The full band -- with special guest star David Grahame (performing Todd Rundgren's "Couldn't I Just Tell You") -- at the Other End.

That last one, in particular, slays me. Seriously Proustian, if you know what I mean.

The Way We Were (Folk City Edition)

Some recently discovered Flo Mos pictures from a certain venue that will be rising, phoenix-like, next year.

The young woman in the striped shirt is, of course, the fabulous Lucy Kaplansky. For the life of me, though, I don't recall Lucy ever sitting in with us at Folk City, let alone what song we were performing together.

A coveted Floor Models No-Prize© to anybody who can help us out in this regard.
