Are you in the band?

I was just listening to the album on the site, very very nice! I probably would have ordered it eventually anyway based on the quality, but the charity thing made me do it straight away.

Alright everybody!!! Purchase this new Shadow Circus CD, and I will make it my discussion thread CD for the month of February.  That way it will be a new CD that everyone will have so we can actually discuss it.  What do you think?

That's a wonderful thing you're doing, JohnClap. BTW, I haven't forgotten I owe you a reviewWink - which means I'll be able to participate actively in Scott's thread.

Sure! though I already have it.
 
It made my top five for the Collaborators Top Prog Albums 2009 (runner-up to be precise Big smile)
 
It's one of the must haves from last year IMO. It would be good to hear what others think too.
 
Nice one Scott Clap 
 
A beautiful album SC thanks for sharing it with us!! Thumbs Up

Nice! You guys rock the house!

Ok, we've got a count of four CD sales yesterday, almost $50 for Haiti....That's pretty good, but we can do better...Think of it like this: You wanted to donate to the cause anyway, this way you just happen to get a free CD as well!

Also note that we sell the lossless Flac or high-quality mp3 of the whole album for only $7.99, with instant electronic delivery - that's $3 cheaper than Amazon, iTunes, or CD Baby would sell the download version, and it's much better quality!

At the end of the month, we'll tally up all the sales, and discuss which of the organizations everyone thinks we should give the money to, or divide it up between them if everyone likes more than one of them...I'll also post the receipt for the donations, just so that everyone knows it's going where we say it will....It's also nice that we can pool together donations like this, as it makes it less costly for the organizations to process than if there were lots of small donations...

Tell you what - the band met over the weekend, and if you want to do this, we'll extend the offer through February 14th -  all proceeds from sales through our website will go to Haiti charities...

If your band could submit your album to AIIRadio.net, Tony (a DJ there) would almost certainly play tracks from you album and get the word out about your efforts to raise money for Haiti.

Thanks! I sent him a note through the contact page at AIIRadio, his myspace only accepts messages from friends, so I hope he gets the note...

There seems to be way more views than comments in my CD discussion threads, but hopefully more people will be able to discuss your album if they already have it and have had a chance to listen to it.  I am certainly willing to help a great cause and I am definitely looking forward to listening to your album some more myself.  I've definitely enjoyed my first couple of listens.

I will likely speak with him today and I'll make sure he does.

I'm totally up for this idea, sounds like fun...

Only problem is I live in Australia, so hopefully my copy reaches me in time for discussion! (I ordered a couple of days ago when John first posted here about his generous charity).

One thing that I can do, but don't advertise, is issue a coupon code for the download version for anyone who buys the physical CD, so they can download and listen while they wait....I can't make this work automatically, so anyone who wants that who ordered the CD just reply to your order confirmation email and I'll issue a coupon code for you!
