Great news indeed. I'm listening to it now, and really enjoying it. I'll probably buy this and Groove Immersion after Christmas. And although it's nice to be able to download from somewhere other than iTunes or Amazon, especially in FLAC(!), I'm going to keep buying his physical CDs as long as it makes sense for him to produce them.
I know, it's so 2002, but I still have a thing for holding a CD(with artwork or a custom-made box) in my hands. I'm sure it's a holdover from handling my vinyl records with care and love as I prepared for the ritual of immersing myself in the music. Some things are hard to let go of, but as more musicians like Steve and Saul Stokes and others move their music into a purely digital realm, I suppose we will have to accept the inevitable, cling to our shiny plastic curios and catch new music as it is released into the digital aether.
