Over two years in the making, Sue Fink’s third full-length CD, Treasures & Time Travel — which celebrates the treasures we keep and the places they allow us to revisit — is being sent forth into the world! The package containing a CD with 13 original songs, and a bound, 32-page art booklet w/lyrics is a like treasure itself, one to keep and revisit.

I wanted to create the kind of CD that I enjoy owning myself,” Sue muses. “I like albums that take you on a journey: the songs stand on their own, but taken as a whole, the sequencing creates an even larger story. And I appreciate lyric booklets! And beautiful art.

So, that’s what I’m going for here. There’s both ear-candy: interesting sonics, musical connections between songs, and stellar musicians, whose parts are sometimes like characters themselves – and eye-candy: artwork by friends, beautiful photos, lyrics you can read and ponder. It’s the kind of album that works on long car rides, when you’re in the open and can concentrate on the music, and also, anywhere you can listen and read the lyrics at the same time.

The album’s musicians are well-known in Chicago: John Abbey (bass), Hans Christian (Door County cellist), Andon Davis (guitar), Jordi Kleiner (violin), Bob Long and Linda Marie Smith (piano), Meg Thomas (percussion), and Chris Walz (banjo). There are guest vocalists on several songs as well. As with Sue’s previous CDs, Bruce Roper (Sons of the Never Wrong) recorded, mixed, and co-produced.

The CD cover is an etching by Deborah Maris Lader, an artist of many disciplines, including music (Bruce, Deb, and Sue Demel are Sons of the Never Wrong). Graphic design is by Mary Lewis, who also designed Sue’s previous music projects.

The CD was released on September 23rd at Sue’s Album Release Show (with full band) at Evanston SPACE (direct link here).  It is now available online at Sue’s CD Baby store (click the BUY NOW button for easy access) and will soon be available on iTunes, Amazon, etc.  But the physical CD, with the art/lyric booklet, is available right now at this link (which also includes more song samples).
