THE ELM TREASON NEWSLETTER NO. 27
OCTOBER 22, 2021
*** BIG ANNOUNCEMENT TIME!***
Okay, ready? (the mouth waters)
We’re feelin’ the excitement, and we’re makin’ it official…
We’ve got a BRAND NEW ALBUM!
(Woo FREAKING Hoo!!)
We call it “Bare Tones.”
It’s a play on the phrase “Bare Bones.”
It’s a professionally recorded live 70 minute set of us doing our two-man-band-thing just as we do it when we go out and hit the stage.
Two voices. Two microphones. Two guitars. Nothing else. Pure Elm Treason.
Bom Bom Boom!
Live album – without overdubs. Honest. Naked (so to speak… thank goodness).
We had three cameras capturing the performance as well.
Thus, we have created both an audio record of the session (available on CD, vinyl and digital download) as well as a video record (on DVD or Bluray). 15 songs spanning the Elm Treason catalog.
Many of you have probably seen our live two-man Throwback Thursday jams on our Facebook page. So many have commented how much they love them and would really dig a properly recorded album of these types of live renditions.
Well, we’ve done it. And we think we’ve done it right.
It is a dream come true for us.
And you guys here get first dibs before anyone else!
To that end, we are officially announcing the BARE TONES HOLIDAY SEASON PRE-SALE!
Lots of packages for you to choose from. All kinds of formats.
All available to you guys right now before “the rest of world” even hears about this.
Check it out! And thank you so much. We know you’ll love this.
Your Input: Fill in the Blank
You may have seen this somewhere in a slightly different form.
Originally, the blank was filled in with the words “YOKO ONO,” which is pretty funny on its own (no personal slight to Yoko intended).
But we thought it might be fun to have YOU fill in the blank with what makes sense to you.
Maybe an extra hour in 2021 is a positive for you.
How would YOU fill in this blank? Hit that comments section!
GREAT debut albums!
So many great debut albums out there, so little bandwidth to display their covers.
These 16 are, by no means, exhaustive…or even fractionally representative…. they’re just some of our favorites.
What’s your favorite debut album?

PHOTO OF THE WEEK
City strollin’, March, 2018
The struggle was all too VERY real.
Dig this 70s-era PIONEER stereo ad. Would STILL love to own that.
ONE MORE FUNNY
The “self-explanatory” kind of funny.
