I am really sorry that the live CD has not been completed more than half a year later..
In am the sole investor,and due to the fact that I haven't been working as much as I thought I would have been, I have not been able to pay for the production of the record.
To everyone who came to the concerts at the Birchmere last August 2010. I promise that I have loaded your information into a database and I will send the record to you as soon as it's finished.
Thankfully,I am going on tour with Jonathan Butler and Eric Darius for the next several weeks so I am pretty sure that once I get the editing and manaufacturing done,it will take no time to reach you.
Once again ,please forgive me for the delay,but this is my first adventure as a record label owner,and I have much to learn!

Since then, Maysa has appeared on over seven Incognito recordings including their latest CD, Bees and Things and Flowers. Maysa recorded her self-titled debut in 1995, followed by her solo sophomore effort All My Life in 1999, Out of The Blue in 2002, Smooth Sailing in 2004, Sweet Classic Soul in 2006, and now Feel The Fire, 2007.
