It's been a great few months for us at JBC Central. As we may have mentioned before, we were overwhelmed by your swiftness and generosity in supporting our fundraising campaign for the new record. We're pleased with the way that copies have been making their way out of the door as well, which, at the very least, affords Fishy an airing once in a while on his trips to the Post Office. We have sold copies in the UK, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Greece, Spain, Sweden, Canada, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil and the USA.
If you don't yet have a copy of our new album you can order a CD or download from www.cdbaby.com or from www.maxeider.com by using the buttons below. The album is also available on iTunes.

The Last of the Gentlemen Adventurers

I confess, I had no small amount of trepidation approaching the new record. Indeed, I've had it in my possession for a year and I just completed the third listening.
Since the JBC hits me on a basic emotional level (even the funny stuff, always has done), I worry about the releases from my favorite artists as I age exponentially. It's not doubt, it's just wondering where this communique will fit in the cupboard of things near and dear to me. Either there's less space in there, or there are more items in store than I'd care to admit.
I needn't have worried. This is a wonderful record. I'll spare you my nonsense re: what I like and why.
Thanks for realizing you had another one in you and getting it out the door.

Just wanted to follow up on the invitation for The JBC to play at Calgary's well respected High Performance Rodeo. I am not a good friend of Michael (though we have met a few times) but I have attended many events at The High Performance Rodeo and at One Yellow Rabbit theatre and can vouch for the wonderful festival and concur that you would be a wonderful fit. I have sent several messages on this board requesting for you guys to return to Calgary for a live show or two. This might be the best way and venue to make it happen. Please bring Max with you! I enjoyed your last couple of shows here in town but it has been way too long and we need you back! Love the new album!
My brother's mix

So twenty-one years ago, my brother passed away. When going through his things, I found a mix tape of great songs with no tracklisting. It took me twenty-one years, but I finally identified the last two songs: Olof Palme, and the up-tempo version of Southern Mark Smith that appears on Gift of Music.
Unfortunately, I cannot find a digital version of either song. Is there anyone who can help me? I'm more than willing to pay. This would be of great emotional importance to me.

Wishing A Very Happy Xmas (albeit a day late) to The JBC (Pat, Max, Johnny and Tim) and to all the gentlefolk out there! Many thanks for the Xmas surprise, "Gents"!! I've had La Mer 2012 on constant repeat (along with the "The Last of The English Gentleman" and the recently acquired Curtis E Johnson's "The Compleat Unknown"). Adding a little spice into the Xmas festivities. An utterly unexpected and absolutely marvelous surprise treat for the holiday season! Happy to New Year to all!!
