As filk listeners know, Leslie Fish is extraordinarily prolific. While many of her songs are well-known in filk circles, she’s written hundreds of songs that have never been recorded.
With Angel with a Sword, we remastered and restored as many of Leslie’s “lost” songs from the early-to-mid 2000s as we could. Most of these songs have never been heard outside of a handful of small science-fiction convention concerts.
Songs were carefully selected across hours of concert recordings from 1999-2006, and painstakingly edited/mastered to near studio-grade quality by the amazing Phillip Klum.
In addition to the 29 album and bonus tracks you’ll receive (plus spoken intro tracks), we’re also offering everyone who buys the album through our website a special bonus: the near-complete download of the ~5 hours of original concert recordings Phil used to make the album.
These full concerts include a number of both rare and familiar songs we were unable to fit onto the album.
Sound recordings by Gerry Tyra and Scott Dorsey. We’re also lucky to again have illustration and packaging design by brilliant Dutch artist Tineke Lemmens.
All purchases (CD or digital) include immediate 320K MP3 and FLAC (audiophile-grade) album downloads.
