the way i feel today
It was made available for sale in mid-October of 1998. As of this writing (a month later), there are still copies available for purchase through firstname.lastname@example.org. Each copy was $25, plus $2 postage/handling for delivery inside the US, and $5 postage/handling for delivery outside the US. All prices in US dollars.
These days, it's available at live shows and through CD Baby for the low low price of $15. Buy two, they're swell!
So, what's it like? Why, it is a sheer delight. Musically, the standards are brilliant big-band arrangements; they've got horns, and strings, and squonky little synthesizers lurking in the background (manned by ex-WOV member and Drywall producer Bill Noland). Stan takes to singing those great old songs like a duck to water, as if he's been singing them all his life. But why not decide for yourself... continue on, gentle reader. $2$3$5
All samples are MP3 files, and they are virtually CD quality (stereo, 128k/sec). To listen to 'em, you'll need an MP3 player, a special piece of software that turns MP3 files back into sound. They're easy to use; they work just like little CD players, except they play files. Where can you get one? Head to http://www.mp3.com/ and poke around. They've got 'em for all platforms. If you're a Windows user, WinAmp is a good choice. I haven't used any MP3 players on other platforms; feel free to send me mail and recommend one if you find one that works well for you and I'll mention it on the site.
