OL, when you’re in Cali, check to see if there is a Peets coffee in town. (none in Lodi, though) www.peets.com
They sometimes have WiFi, but more importantly, they have the best roast I’ve ever tasted.
P.S. I agree with the Alanis thing. haha. Or any artist who decides to sell their CD through SB. Eeeck.
Hola David… I hope you are not going to take this too hard, but if Starbucks were to decide to sell, and most importantly play Winter Rose in their cafes I would jump at the chance. Yes, sir!
I think their customers would love hearing Winter Rose instead of the usual Starbucks music selections, don’t you think? More people would get exposed to our music. That could make a big difference for us.
Last night I woke up around 4AM and decided to listen to La Semana for the first time in many weeks. That’s a fine record. Nothing like it out there anywhere. Not in the US of A and not in Spain or anywhere. Flamenco with an American groove! Unique. I smiled a big smile in my dark bunk. Then I listened to Winter Rose and was just as pleased! Great guitar sound, a little better than La Semana even, I think. Different, of course… more introspective… but very beautiful with wonderful bass work from Jon… I want to make this music available for people and I think Starbucks would be a good way to reach a bigger audience.
Hm, that said, Peets does make some fine coffee. I have friends who travel with their Peets beans, because they are addicted to them… Me, I am more of an Illy guy, with a fondness for our local Ohori’s burned coffee. Every single roast they make is dark, dark, dark and makes a lovely brew.
