Those Darn Accordions are a bit overdue for a new release, so to make up for lost time the band is about to record its first CD in 3 years -- and is considering cranking out a kids' CD to boot.
"People have been telling us for years that we should do a kids' CD, so I've been squirreling away the tunes until the time was right," said TDA bandleader Paul Rogers. "Will this mean an afternoon show for the kids and an evening show for the grownups? We'll see."
Rogers says he's got a bluegrass CD in the works as well. Must be all that time he's spent "soaking" up the great Northwest. With all this impending recording, and the widely reported "death of the CD," the question of what extras -- photos, lyrics, stickers, shrubbery -- might be included with the physical recordings remains unanswered.
