Re: [Harp-L] CD: 'Somewhere on the edge of time'

Hey, I know this shelf !!! I've got the same one at home !!!
But mine is a "middle shelf" cause I'm so lazy that I don't want to bend
myself to take my preferred CDs :-)
Very honored to be on a special shelf somewhere in another part of the
world !

Yep, Sebastien Charlier, to my opinion, is the most impressive harp player
His chorus on my album is something that has never been heard before. He
simulates an electric guitar so well (sound & licks) that a professional
guitarist friend of mine was really troubled about it, not being sure if it
was a guitar or not.
BTW his next album should be released soon (before summer as far as I know).

Oh, concerning your previous question, I don't think it is in the Perrier
water. My guess is that there is something strange with our cheese.
These could be so dangerous for non used people that we are not allowed to
export them in many countries around the world.
I say : one should always be careful of a man who can eat Camembert &
Roquefort for breakfast :-)

Take care,

Jerome Peyrelevade
