Do CD\'s actually get re stocked

Got my package of CD\'s and poster today, thanks again Travis for taking the extra time with the poster.

Maybe if we can get enough response in this thread another pre-order type deal could be done for some of the OOP discs (I\'m looking for Shadows.. myself). I could certainly put money up front to help get some more discs available.

I would be completely against having download only format for new music. I am somewhat against the idea of spending money on something with no physical representation. There is something additional to Buckethead\'s music that having the CD makes it that much better. If download was the only option what would stop less scrupulous people from thinking hey I can either download it for free (pirate) or download for $10, which option do you think they would chose.... I am proud of my Buckethead/Travis/ etc. CD collection.... the only Buckethead in my music library that doesn\'t have a CD sitting on my shelf is NTT. I won\'t even copy Bucket cd\'s for friends, insist they purchase them instead.

I\'m happy with paying a little more to get harder to find, OOP CDs back in the store. My collection is steadily growing and they look damn good on my shelf.

Ditto this; I\'ve paid more than the original cost for several out of print cd\'s (DOTR, SOTS, Bermuda Triangle)... I certainly wouldn\'t mind paying more for an OOP from TDRS because if the options are:
a) don\'t own cd  
b) pay high price from second hand seller
c)  pay TDRS more for reprinted version

I\'d choose c) because it will get the most amount back to the artists involved (Bucket, Travis, Brain, etc.) and the price would be the same as or likely less  than buying secondhand

Agreed. I\'ve point blank refused to turn to eBay to flesh my collection out. If I have to, I\'ll get it from eBay and donate money here too. By my reasoning, it\'s just the same as paying a little extra for a reprint that\'s unavailable elsewhere.

^You shouldn\'t completely reject eBay. As a buyer it\'s a great resource for hard to get stuff. Not CDs available here, that\'s stupid. But all the other times it is really good.

I wish Buckethead would come to the UK.

I don\'t reject it on behalf of everyone, of course, it\'s a great notion for people and it gets the word out there. It\'s just me personally. :)

That said, back on the topic, I\'m thinking of starting an online petition on behalf of fans to get those out of print and out of Travis\' power back in the store and re-printed once more. If the power of fans can do one thing, it\'s this.

I wouldn\'t get my hopes up for any OOP albums other than those on TDRS label to be reprinted/available again. Although it did happen with Bermuda Triangle...

I for one would certainly support a release of Shadows Between The Sky. I was away from home for 6 months when that one was released and therefore wasn\'t able to buy a copy. It is one of the few outstanding for me and like a few others above would rather not go to eBay.

Cheers!!
Be a lot cooler if you did!
