Album Notes
The artist currently and formerly known as Paul Kotheimer has a hunch that nobody reads these blurbs. If you do, and you want a free CD from the hand-made back catalog, e-mail me at Thank you for supporting independent music. Meanwhile, THE KILOGRAM OF GOLD is the eleventh (yes, ELEVENTH!) solo release by Paul Kotheimer. Paul has been crafting crafty short stories in song and recording them in his ever morphing home recording studio since the age of the TEAC reel-to-reel machine and the one-off cassette release--i.e., before the internets, even. He is old and bald now, but was once acne ridden with eighties hair--i.e., in the 80s. Does this information help sell CDs? We certainly hope so. The following information, additionally, might be considered legitimate selling points: Each copy of THE KILOGRAM OF GOLD is hand-stamped with gold ink. The first 50 copies of the disc were burned to GOLD CD-R's to match with the title and theme of the project. And each of the first pressing of 50 copies is numbered, just like the artsy limited press run item which it is. That's what we do at the hand-made record label: Record extremely wordy yet compelling songs in our dusty basement, then burn CD-R's one at a time on the computer, then rubber stamp them with a rubber stamp, then try to sell them to our friends, which, if you've read this far into this ridiculous text, includes you. So go ahead. Buy one. Or e-mail me at the address listed above to report that you have read this, and as promised, I'll send you a free CD from my back catalog, which is stored--incidentally--in the same dusty basement where I record my new CDs.
