The CD, 'Rare Antiquity: Digging Down To The Past' was pressed in December of 2003. The 8 original songs are complex melodically, harmonically and rhythmically. The 11 cover songs are up close and personal. The songs try to touch your emotions and they make you feel good. The songs are by a singer who creates stories, inhabits characters, uses imagery in his lyrics and touches your heart with musical arrangements and artistic words. He writes about people, about politics, about love, about imagination, about superstition or a magical perspective of being human, about living life as a human experience in this world. His original paintings included in the CD offer images of the world and the people in it. They complement the music. A geologist studies rock in all it's forms and it is clear that this is just the beginning. Geologist had intended to place the CD in major record store chains; however, they wanted him to distribute it via a middle company and for middle company fees that large labels do not pay. That meant in order to place an Edmonton, Alberta, Canada made CD in an Edmonton store, it would have to be sent to Toronto, Ontario, Canada first - to the other side of the continent - and then sent back to Edmonton, or anywhere else for that matter. Geologist wanted to send the CDs directly to wherever they would go by doing away with the middle company and without the middle company fee. When the test shipment of CDs to the middle company was bogged down in Toronto, an impasse was reached and with the exception of the odd independent store, few CDs made it into a record store. Similarly, Geologist tried to place the CD, 'Rare Antiquity: Digging Down To The Past' onto iTunes initially; however, iTunes wanted them uploaded via a middle company for a middle company annual fee. Geologist had the ability to upload the CD to iTunes in any format iTunes required. The original middle company list provided by iTunes contains one company that is now a flower shop and others that are no longer in the online music business. Some of the middle companies were obviously unstable, unreliable, non-transparent and unaccountable. Nevertheless, after almost six years of arguing, Geologist either had to give in and try a middle company or never place any songs online. He chose one middle company that many other artists were using. The MP3s will be available July 1, 2009 on iTunes, Amazon, Rhapsody, eMusic and Napster. Then came the list of preferred middle companies from iTunes, with CD Baby on the list. Geologist released two earlier all original limited edition physical CDs with a total run of 500 copies each for particular causes. Each CD contained 11 original songs; however, those two limited edition CDs are being released digitally with a total of 17 bonus songs added to new mixes, alternate recordings and amplified tracks. They are titled, 'For Desiree....Wherever You Are Limited Edition - with 10 bonus songs' - for a total of 21 songs and, 'Children Have No Rights Limited Edition - with 7 bonus songs - for a total of 18 songs. This CD, 'Rare Antiquity: Digging Down To The Past' had 500 copies pressed initially and possibly another 500 to be pressed after that. It contains original paintings/drawings by Geologist and lyrics for the 8 original songs. The Cover, Back Cover, the Inside Covers and the CD Booklet Insert Covers all contain original artwork by Geologist. The MP3 online version has it's cover as, 'Jazz Dancer on the Piano', which is the
