I’ve gone to the Wayback Machine and retrieved an old post I made back in 2000 about an old classic – Grabbag. The post comes from the old 3d Realms Ultimate Bulletin Board, and it’s very in-depth about the song and the circumstances that led to its creation. The only thing it lacks is a musical analysis, but if things keep going the way they are on the Lee Jackson Audio Community Discussion Group on Facebook, you may find that coming up this weekend.
My gratitude goes out to the person who must have read my last blog post, for they acted quickly and snatched up the very last signed & numbered CD of Derivations that will ever be made. Thank you very much indeed! As soon as I hear back from you concerning the question I sent on eBay, I will ship out your CD to you. Much obliged, and many thanks!
So, now we wait for CD Baby to reopen their warehouse so that CD sales can begin on Amazon. You can already buy the MP3 album from Amazon, but I’ll be happy when people can get the physical product in their hands. Watch this space for updates, and cross your fingers that the COVID-19 pandemic doesn’t shut everything down again.
The eBay sale of the signed & numbered Derivations CDs got off to a quick start. Five CDs were purchased on the very first day! After that, there was a bit of a lull, until I went onto Discord one day and managed to sell three more very quickly. Another person bought the ninth CD shortly thereafter.
So, now it’s down to this. There is only one signed & numbered CD left, and it’s yours for the taking at $50 (plus shipping) on eBay.
I’ve added an extra benefit to the deal. Back at the beginning of the year, I had some very fancy dual-sided business cards with my picture on them printed up for Jon St. John’s “NotCon at Sea” cruise-confab. I’m enclosing one of these inside the CD case with the purchase. I’m also still autographing a dedication at the top of the CD cover (leave me a note with your purchase saying what you’d like written there).
This is the last one, folks. After this, there will never be another signed & numbered Derivations CD. Please grab your copy today!
The Signed and Numbered copies of Derivations are already selling on eBay, and man, are they going swiftly! Ten of them went on sale this morning (Wednesday, June 10th) at $50 each, and half of them are already gone. That leaves just five copies still available!
As a reminder, here’s what you’re getting when you purchase one of these CDs:
- A copy of the CD package that’s been signed and numbered by the composer/artist himself, yours truly.
- A special autograph on the CD cover – whatever you’d like, as long as it’s in good taste and as long as it fits.
- International shipment via the eBay Global Shipping Program.
These are also the only available CDs at this time, thanks to CD Baby’s distribution warehouse being closed. I hope that the situation will soon be fixed. Until then, please grab one of these limited edition CDs! There’ll never be any others like them.
