Bradfordian, I agree that there's no real substitute for a physical CD (or vinyl album, for that matter).    But there's also an important place for music that's stored in much more compact ways, e.g., on a hard drive or online or on a flash drive or iPod.   As small as CDs are, they still take up space, and it's much easier to take several hundred (orseveral thousand) songs with you on your iPod when you travel than it is to take a comparable number in any "hard copy" form.
I would never suggest not having the CDs & "jewel cases" - and I hope CDs never really go away, just as vinyl hasn't - but I still like the option of buying these "albums" as digital downloads too.

Here is the PROPOSED prices for the Mudcat CDs.
I will take your comments before confirming the prices.

I want to keep prices rounded rather than matching exchange rates.
That helps to keep it simple, as does IMO including shipping costs.

The prices reflect that the project has NOT been done in a professional studio, that all tracks have been donated, that there may be a little variability in quality (because I wanted to be inclusive).

I'm also bearing in mind the economic climate AND the fact that Mudcat is doing fair from those adverts which you are all clicking away at!

I would prefer to sell bundles but have been advised that single CDs should be available at the same time as the bundles (I was going to hold back for a few months, but have relented on that)

5 Mudcat CDs PLUS the seasonal CD $60, £35, 45Euros TO INCLUDE shipping,
Any 1 CD $15, £9, 12Euros TO INCLUDE shipping.


Please let me have your feedback here or by PM/e-mail (see the poster for my addy) Then I will either confirm or modify those prices.

$10US each or $60US for the set sounds good to me

I assume you will send the CDs & inserts without jewel cases to cut down on postage to far-flung paces like the antipodes?

I'll order a set

Leadfingers, I can't speak definitively, but I know there has been some juggling going on in order to fit as many songs as possible on each CD, so it may be too early for Barrie or Michael to post the tracklists yet. I know of a few songs that have 'migrated' from one of the CDs to another.
My guess is that the tracklists will be made public as soon as the CDs are 'in the can', so to speak. But I'm not the horse's mouth in this case. (I hope I'm not some other part of the horse, either.)

What Bruce said.

If postage and handling are included, the prices may need to be a bit higher, at least for single CD orders. If you are not getting advice from Dick G. on pricing and postage already, suggest you consult.

Sandra, I did propose $15 for a single CD with shipping.
People ordering sets PLUS extras will get a discount on the extras when included in a single order.
I'm hoping that a fair bundle price will encourage people to go for that option. Dick has been consulted. There's no need to be greedy, Mudcat will do extremly handsomely even after production and shipping costs. Obviously, the lower we can keep the price, the more people will buy (whole sets hopefully.

Those are absolutely fair prices, imo, esp. generous in including postage and handling. What about a discount if we buy multiples (at least 6) of the same one? I am thinking Christmas presents for family and friends. I, too, hope there will be no jewel cases.

I'll buy one set, plus I am sure we'll want one or two extras of the one my grandson is on, "Sky" is it?

Thanks, again!

There will be discounts for "bulk" orders .....Anything to get your money. ;~)

If you are really desperate to part with your money, I guess I need to start to set that facility up.

For those who want to buy in US dollars, Dick Greenhaus will handle that. I will handle the ones who want to pay in UK pounds and Euros.

I will let you know on Mudcat when we are ready to roll.

When Amos put together the first set of Mudcat CDs (the Blueplate Specials), I bought one complete set and or or 5 more of the one I had a song on. IIRC, Dick let me purchase all 9 or 10 of them for $12 apiece.
That makes sense to me, since it does encourage buying in bulk, or "multiple copies," no matter which assemblage of CDs you select.

Well, we (the team) are still beavering away with this project. We are coming towards the end of the preparation stage which includes checking lyrics, collecting "liner" notes, preparing the artwork, and much, much more (little did I realise just how much more!). After this stage, we will create the masters and get them replicated.

Over the next few days, I hope to contact all the contributors by email and/or PM to give us a final verification on lyrics and "liner" notes so that we can finalise and burn the pdfs onto the CDs BY THE END OF JULY; So:-

ALL MUDCAT CD (& SEASONAL CD) CONTRIBUTORS, PLEASE CHECK YOUR EMAILS AND PMs OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS FOR FURTHER INSTRUCTIONS

PS. The rest you, keep putting a bit of money to one side for these CDs. We have some brilliant gems on the CDs, and I'm pretty sure we have something for everyone (well 99%)
