@ Snake65 and 2littleangels - THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT! YOU ROCK!!

@ pjs - I hear you loud and clear, and believe me when I say that I'm sorry you don't like the price that I'm selling it at. But let me explain the logic behind that.

Back in October I started a crowd funding campaign. Where you'd pay $20 (price included shipping) and you'd get a Limited Edition CD with 15 songs on it (Official release will only have 11). Those contributors then had to wait close to 4 months before they actually got a CD. So imagine if you were one of those contributors, and then you saw that other people were getting the CD for the exact same price that you paid, and they didn't even have to wait more than a week to get their CD. Wouldn't you be a little pissed? Would you then contribute to any future campaign that I have for a CD? Probably not! And let's face it, there wouldn't even be a CD if not for those that contributed to the campaign. So they're the last ones I want to piss off.

So although, I'd hate to lose someone's business because I'm charging more than a normal CD (although it's still less than what you'd pay for a Jap release with bonus tracks), I don't have very many of these left, and when they're gone, I'm not printing anymore. Have you seen what my out of print albums go for these days? I've seen the debut go for more than $80 before and I printed more CDs of that one than I did of this new one! Supply and Demand. ;)

If they weren't selling, then of course I'd have no choice but to bring down the price or lose my ass. But since they're flyin' out of here pretty quickly, I think I made the right choice in not pissing off any contributors by selling the CD for less than what they paid for it.

So although I'd really appreciate your support by buying my Limited Edition CD, I totally understand why you wouldn't. No hard feelings. That's the beauty of livin' in a free world. I can charge what I want for my work, and you can choose whether or not to buy it. :)

Cheers!

Johnny
