haven't seen anyone report this yet but just wanted to let everyone know
that last week i finally received my "shaming of the sun" song book.
took them awhile to get it out but it appears to have been worth the
wait. is written out for both piano and has all the chords and strumming
patterns. also great pictures. so anyone who has been checking out their
local music stores may want to check again or you may want to re-order
it since i know i had mine on order for the past 11 months.

hey,


i've already thrown away that edition of the paper, but in the obituary for
curtis mayfield a couple of days ago there was some minor ig content.
(mayfield
was from chicago, but he lived in atlanta for the past 20 years.)


for some upcoming project called "atlanta 2000" [which seems to be some
kind of
yearlong focus on making atlanta a focal point for ... i'm not sure what --
they
just had an all-faiths gathering at the georgia dome a couple of weeks back
where they were trying to get people to converge and make alliances across
various religious faiths], they're in the process of recording the official
theme song for the project, which is curtis mayfield's "people get ready".
the
intent is to make this recording the "official atlanta city anthem" from
now on.
various luminaries in the pantheon of the atlanta music scene are supposed to
participate, including ig, elton john (a part-time atlanta resident), tlc,
monica, goodie mob(?), outkast(?), travis tritt(?), producers jermaine
dupri and
dallas austin (?)and several others.  [if somebody still has the article from
the atlanta journal-constitution, perhaps they can post a transcript of it
with
an accurate list of the artists involved.]  don't know when it's slated to be
completed and released.
