this is our new dust icon. she's a beauty, isn't she? a type of pollen bacteria. I hate this stuff when it sticks in my graying nostril hairs but seeing it like this, it has such symmetry. beautiful. whenever you see this little dust icon it will mean there is a new download available from our rarities collection. having spent most of the past week sifting through these dust particles here is what I've discovered:
there are 85 tracks I want to make available. these are the tracks which were meant to comprise the dust boxed set. instead we've turned them into 72 downloads (some downloads include more than one track) of live cuts, re-mixes, demos, and more than 30 tracks never released before. they span nearly forty years of recordings.
now here comes the fun part.
each week we will offer a new download for the low low price of only $1.49!
you heard me right: $1.49!
and you can collect them just like baseball cards.
BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE:
we have organized them into 4 handy volumes.
week after week you can place your new download
in one of 4 different playlists you make yourself!
(volumes 1 through 4)
eventually you will have the entire collection in its correct chronological order.
big deal, right?
but it makes for an clever means of reference.
and it's so easy!
or maybe you'd just rather purchase one every now and then.
that's fine too.
either way you'll amaze your friends with your vast knowledge of useless,
that is, priceless information.
so why wait?
start your collection TODAY.
on a more serious note I would like to thank bruce marshall for all the work he put into cleaning these tracks from so many different sources to make them sound as best they could and of course ken latchney who painstakingly re-mixed and in some cases reconstructed nearly nine hours of lost material. as each track is released I will do my best to credit the cast of characters and places involved.
