The records arrived just in time for the release show, and by "just in time" I mean exactly 1 day before. How's that for cutting it close? They would have been in hand a lot sooner, but there was an issue with the initial test pressing that required David Allen re-master the last tracks on each side of the record to be less "hot" (My fault for not initially telling him I was going to have vinyl made). Apparently, as you get closer to the center of the record, and the circle gets smaller, the tracks become more prone to distortion, especially on the high-end (oversimplifying). This is why albums back in the day were sequenced so that each side ended with a quiet ballad, rather than a rocker. Very cool piece of history and definitely a learning experience for me. The people at Mobineko were very cool and helpful through the whole process and I will gladly recommend them for working hard to deliver the record "just in time."
Holding my first record was a profound experience, second only to the day my daughter was born. I've released CD's in the past, but it doesn't even come close to the feeling of taking the 12" vinyl out of a sleeve you designed and dropping the needle. I'm really proud of this release and owe many thanks to those who supported me through each and every stage. Now it's yours to have.
