DeanMail - December, 2013 - Winter's On It's Way - Words & Music, Synths & Snails
We've only had a light dusting so far, but winter's definitely on its way. Soon it'll be time for shoveling snow, deicing windshields, putting on the snow tires, waxing the skids on our one-horse open sleigh...
Which also means it's time to order those CD's, T-Shirts, Posters, Books and stuff as holiday gifts for your spouse, main-squeeze, bff, friend, casual acquaintance, co-workers, neighbor (not those neighbors - the other neighbors), mom, dad, aunts, uncles, kids, grand-kids and pets.
There are a few really cool new items featured in the ORDER section of the www.DeanFriedman.com website, which I hope you'll check out:
Dean Friedman 'Word & Music' [2-Disc Compilation CD / 30 tracks in all]
Next time one of your friends or co-workers looks at you with a puzzled expression and asks, "Dean who?", just hand them this double-CD and let them enjoy discovering the answer for themselves. All the tracks were hand-picked by me: thirty tracks (two discs) of what I consider to be some of my best songs/recordings, chosen from my last six studio albums, including popular tracks like McDonald's Girl and Rocking Chair, and chock-filled with fan favorites like Saturday Fathers, Hey Larry, Under the Weather, I'm a Lucky Guy, Shopping Bag Ladies, It's a Wonderful Life, Death to the Neighbors, New Lang Syne, It's My Job and much more.
NOTE: This collection does NOT contain Lucky Stars, Lydia or Ariel. I couldn't be more proud of the hits, but in truth they've already gotten way more than their share of airplay - and I'm passionate about the idea that the songs on this compilation album deserve to be heard.
Includes 24-page booklet with lyrics.

Well, Well,' Said the Rocking Chair'
35th Anniversary - DIGITALLY REMASTERED EDITION
It took a while, but the copyrights to my critically acclaimed, best-selling 2nd album, "Well, Well", Said the Rocking Chair', have finally reverted back to me, after 35 years. It contains hits like Lucky Stars, Lydia, Rocking Chair, plus favorites like S&M, Shopping Bag Ladies, The Deli Song, I've Had Enough, Don't You Ever Dare, Let Down Your Hair. I digitally remastered the album, myself, from the original safety-masters. Sounds even better to me than the original! ;-) For years, folks have been asking me where to get copies of this hard-to-find CD. Well, look no further. Here it is!

New York School of Synthesis T-Shirt [L, XL] (original artwork by Dean)
In 1986 I authored the very first 'consumer guide' for music synthesizers along with a book and a series of videos titled, 'Synthesizer Basics'. The books were used at colleges/universities around the world and the instructional videos are still viewed by tens of thousands of synth lovers on YouTube. After receiving oodles of emails asking about the cool T-shirt I wore in the videos, I finally tracked down my original hand drawn artwork and made these cool T-shirts available again.

Your kids will have lots of fun playing with this colorful and durable, life-sized, and realistic, molded-plastic snail.

'Slimey' is realistically modeled after a white-lipped snail (Cepaea hortensis), a medium-sized, air-breathing land snail, also known as a terrestrial pulmonate gastropod mollusc. Size: 4 1/2" from head to tail.
This product is phthalate free and has passed all US and European safe-product protocols: ASTM F963-03 and EN-71. KID SAFE!
