you can count on me to buy peppers on whatever its printed on.

I am interested a pre-sale purchase of a re-press of Shadows.  
My 2nd choice would be pressed disc and inserts and I supply the jewel case.
I have to interest in a download.  If so, I would just use iTunes.

Is this repressing going to happen or not for pepper\'s ghost?... i really want to listen to brewer in the air in my car on my way to work  XD.
Also about that thing for cd vs cdr, as long as the cdr is burn as a AUDIO cd and not mp3, then it\'s fine. I didnt even know there was a physical difference between cds and cdrs.

Not true. Many older stereos don\'t recognize them, and even some newer ones don\'t recognize certain brands.

Hi Travis,

Was there ever a resolution to this thread?  I would certainly love the opportunity to get Shadows Between the Sky again (there are others as well), as I missed it the first time around!  This post had a lot of discussion, but I was curious about what decision (if any) you made on the issue.

PS - If anyone has an extra SBTS they would be willing to part with, please PM me!

Sorry, we are no closer to a solution. It\'s important to remember that most of the CDs your interested in are from Bucketheadland. I have CD\'s I make for my label TDRS, and then other labels, Bucketheadland, and ION and a few others.  Only TDRS do I have direct control over repressing. Though over the years I have tried to do what I can to keep Bucketheadland CDs in stock it\'s really up to them as to how they want to allocate their resources and I think with the music business being what it is , that\'s becoming a bit challenging.  I think right now all resources are going into touring. I expect once that winds down an overall picture of how their music is going to be distributed will be clearer.

If and as soon as I know more, I\'ll pass it along.

oh, i see. Well it is a complicated matter, specially with the state of things nowadays.
Still, i think that maybe a change in the format like a vinyl would get a better financial response of fans who already have it but want to hear it in another format and maybe those who do not have them yet.

Having no clue or insight on the music industry, i have seen how Merzbow constantly releases album after album (5 or more per year) and he makes pressings of 100 to 1000 vinyl copies that seem to gorelatively well.


Still, i feel awful for voting on the repressing of ARDIR and SOTP and didnt bought them. Ill fulfill my promise on Spetember

Hello.

I came to this forum looking for information on Pepper\'s Ghost and then found this thread.

So yes, I am yet another person who is very interested in a re-release. And I also would like to pre-order, if possible ;)

Moreover I want to say that for me it is important to have Cover Artwork and (even more important) a real "pressed" disc. CD-R\'s simply are not as durable!

(BTW: I don\'t like the Pike\'s "paper" cases very much. IMHO they better had shipped the disc with a standard-size booklet only, so one can put the booklet and the disc into a standard plastic case. I have more than enough empty CD cases floating around anyway ^^)

Regards,
MuldeR.

My two cents:

I don\'t see anything wrong with a pre-order. Those who want the CD will pay and wait. When you deem that the number is right Travis, you go ahead with the repressing. Sure it might take a while, months or beyond perhaps, but I\'m sure Bots would rather wait than never be able to obtain these albums.

I\'d be willing to pay $20-25 plus shipping for Shadows (Though ARDTR takes priority).

It\'s futile anyway, because in 50 years my CD collection will be rendered obsolete when all music is released in Aerosol form.
Some days, it's a good day to die. And some days, it's a good day to have breakfast.

-B-

While I\'m interested in Shadows and other out of stock CDs being re-released, some other ideas such as:

Release the original artwork package to those of us who have bought the digital downloaded mp3s and we can burn our own CDR\'s and put together our own CDs if we can\'t release the original complete package.

Option 2 offer various forms on digital downloads.  I\'ve heard FLAC is a format that is closest to the orginal recording without loss of quality.
Buckethead CDs to collect:
Shadows Between The Sky and Crime Slunk Scene.

Thank you Travis!

reading this again reminds me how much i would like Pepper\'s Ghost.

Dont you think that making a petition wont help? I would gladly re-do the Crime Slunk Scene process (paying in advance without a release date) ;D

It doesn\'t seem "population override" is OOP. Ion records are selling them directly through eBay. For double the price. I caved in and bought a copy because I don\'t steal music. I would have MUCH rather bought it here. I hope Travis and the boy get a piece of that action. Otherwise I\'m gonna feel real stupid not having patience...

Got that CD as well as "Bucketheadland 2" from the Norman\'s Sound & Vision online store for $18 each.

Unfortunately their site is "Down for Maintenance ..." for quite some time now  ???
