clearly, it's better to press CDs than to burn 'em. Trouble is, it makes no economic sense to press 1000 copies of something that'll sell 100.

I have CD-ROMS that are over 5 years old that work fine. It's possible that, if I had left them out in the sun wiothout a protective envelope or jewel case, they'd have failed. Oddly enough, I don't do that.

I reckon we're coming in to the last Mudcat CD thread!.

I believe your negativity is unwarranted and petty, Guest. I haven't seen you contributing anything to this project -- I know you didn't send in any music, and I am willing to bet you haven't been helping Dick. You certainly didn't volunteer to front the cost of glass-mastering these CDs, did you?   If all you have to volunteer is your civic halitosis, whyncha buzz off, huh?

Seriously, most CD-Rs will fail within 5 years, many a lot sooner.

It's only fair to make potential purchasers aware of this fact.

You're looking at a big bill by making that promise, Dick

These are CD-Rs. If you're worried about sound quality, there's no difference between glass-mastered "pressed" CDs and CD-Rs. If you're worried about longevity, these come with a lifetime warranty. If the disk fails, mail it to CAMSCO and we'll replace it free.

Hi Y'all--
It would be VERY helpful if I could get some idea of how many Mudcatters (and others) will be ordering these CDs. Obviously, per-CD production costs will drop drastically as run size goes up, but I don't want to over-order and fill my already-crowded house up with unsold shiny coasters.

I'f you're planning on being a purchaser, could you let me know this, and give me some idea of whether you want one CD, a set of five or summat in between. Tentatively, sibgle CDs will sell for $15; An entire set will be $60



Thanx!

From: Amos
Date: 14 Nov 02 - 04:19 PM

Richard (radriano) wrote Cyril Tawney, as did Morticia, for permission to use two of his songs in the Mudcat CD: Gray Funnel Line and Sally Free and Easy, respectively.


Cyril granted both permissions. He must be getting used to it -- in responding to Radriano's request he wrote:

Dear Richard

The Mudcat Cafe recording of "GREY FUNNEL LINE" is OK by me, with the proviso that the notes credit the song to me, via Gwyneth Music, as usual.

Very best wishes to you and the Mudcats,

CYRIL TAWNEY

Folks, it's only a couple of days now (barring unforeseen disasters) until we achieve harmonic convergence of the thousands of disparate elements that make up the Mudcat CD series.

Imagine a giant vacuum cleaner pointing into the sky and sucking up bits of music around the globe, picking up words and colors along the way, funneling them into the direction of Connecticut, swirling like a funnel cloud reducing to a single point -- Dick Greenhaus's place!

This will occur when Dick receives my artwork files for the CD inserts AND the blank CDs which I will hand-screenprint, forward to him, and then he will finalize the whole ball of wax.

This has been a very exciting project to watch unfold, and to be involved in. Thanks to all the volunteers who have helped and are going to help unto completion. And thanks to all the contributors for providing the myriad bits of information needed for the inserts.

And just wait `til you read Amos's liner notes. The man is eloquent!
"Adamant celebration", indeed!

Michael

Good stuff, Greg! :>)

Folks the wheels are turning. We are clearing up the minor administriva that any large task like this brings with it. Michael is doing Augean labor in getting the art work and play lists all lined up using Homeless' artwork, and Dick Greenhaus has proved his celestial mettle by doing an ace job as copy editor on the play lists.

So real soon now, I expect, we'll be hearing the CDs are ready for delivery. At that time, let us flood CAMSCO with orders. Save them nickels and dimes, kids!! Swamp the place with orders!

There are several reasons for this. The biggest one is to make this the must successful fundraiser the 'Cat has ever had. Another is to ensure we can maintain the standard of service we get from this remarkable forum and ensure its future. A third is to actually immerse opurselves for a few bright hours in each others' music, which is a transcendental kick in itself!

So stand by, the starter's gun will be raised momentarily!!

Let's overwhelm CAMSCO!! Yaayyyyyyy!! **bg**

I've heard from Max, and he sounds excited about the Mudcat CDs and can't wait to see what we got. The disks should be with CAMSCO tomorrow, I hope. Dick Greenhaus has been named as Da Man for setting the price points. I'll talk to him about it soon.

This has been a remarkable project because it has been entirely voluntary, and has sprung up from the grass-roots of the Mudcat, and self-organized into something that works. Michaelr is wrestling with the inserts, several people have stepped forward to address the UK distribution issue, others have chimed in to offer help from every side.

It reflects, to me, on the remarkable nature of this community, and by extension, on the strange chemistry of time, song, and personality that seems to manifest itself in the hearts of those who Sing the Old Music. They are indeed a breed apart.

Thank you all very very very much! For helping, for encouraging, of course -- but most of all, for singing on!! That's the real gold, the real karma, and the biggest value in the world, a safeguard in mad times and a promise of better ones ahead for every generation who hears it and understands. Sing on, never stop singing on.

FOr those who wonder about the ability to acquire the Mudcat Sampler CD Series for yourselves:

The disks are en route to CAMSCO Music.

MichaelR is organizing the copy for the inserts.

When the inserts and master disks hook up at CAMSCO, Dick Greenhaus will roll into production.

He is doing this on a non-profit, cost-only footing, because he is Da Man!

He and Max, I presume, will establish a price point and as soon as we hear that he can process orders and ship the floodgates will open. We will pound gongs and beat the bowdhrans and break champagne glasses in the fireplace. And drum up orders!


Feel free to pester CAMSCO with incessant inquiries, if you wish. It's probably add time, though! :>)

I have suggested to Bill Sables to hook up to organize a distribution line for UK Catters similar to the Tshirt arrangement he had.

Everyone's doing their part, which is the most amazing thing about this wide-flung cooperative venture!

You who are celebrated and offered renown
For your voices and music throughout Mudcat Town
Pray save future readers from tears and Hystirics
By entering liner notes, credits and lyrics!!

These songs will be precious, and honored and lauded!
Your music and craft will be widely applauded
But think of the listeners, lost and afloat
Without any lyrics or credits or notes!

Oh stir yourself, Artist! Thy muses implore
This heartfelt request do not deign to ignore!
But add -- oh please add! (though I've already said it)
Your lyrics, and comments, and any due credit!

Love,

A
