HANSON: Be Prepared

Jul 27, 2023 | HANSON

This week we are starting a very big project, but not the kind that has a release date. This week we took the first steps in building a new studio archive. Yes digitizing, transferring, consolidating, and updating thirty years of recording sessions, demo tapes, and live recordings is a huge undertaking, but it’s a must.
Even knowing it will take months to complete, it feels good to see it beginning. It is also fun to thinking about all the memories this process will bring back to life.
Isaac, Taylor and Zac

Oooohh exciting! I was thinking this morning that there’s a lot of stuff missing from the media player that I would love to access!

Seeing this bunch of vinyl...... if it's ANYTHING Middle Of Nowhere related I'll probably pass out.

PLEASE don't make something too expensive/super heavy to be shipped :'(

What an exciting project! Tedious, sure, but the end result will be well worth it!

So - maybe, just maybe - we will see a collective release of all those beautiful songs that were cut from albums?!

And - maybe - some live shows (in their entirety) also released?   cd, dvd - preferable both so I can play the music in my car...

I see so many possibilities here!

Great, this is a good ideas during the summer weeks off of shows. But try to relax too because summer time is made to take some vacation too. Cheers, Emilie
