TP-002 is getting ready to launch
« on: November 16, 2007, 05:58:31 PM »
I'm finishing up a print run of the cover art and spine labels for TP-002 and the guys are planning to keep the old engraver running over the weekend. Looks like the first Dave Alvin albums may be going out Monday or Tuesday.

Michael was engraving away like a madman yesterday and he and Rob are working on the final packaging today. I have a few more bits of artwork headed down overnight, and the TP-002s ought to be finished up and going out to subscribers tomorrow.

For members that are on the fence about ordering the Dave Alvin "Blackjack David" tape, it was , by far, the most requested 2 cuts on the demo tape. It's one of those albums that's easy to like and is literally bristling with the kind of hooks that morph into brainworms at the drop of the hat. If you haven't already, buy the download over on iTombs and give it a whirl. It's great for girls and boys of all ages.

We got behind by a day, but TP-002 is shipping to most everyone as I type this. All charter and most selective subscriber tapes are going out in this batch. A couple of the more recent selective subscriber tapes will ship early next week, as I miscounted and we ran a bit short on cover art.

...and me without a deck that's worth a damn. My 1506 finally packed it in after four long years... my 807 is in storage since the room was demo'ed to make way for an addition (and a much MUCH nicer room :D) and I have two A820s STILL out on the East Coast due to be finished sometime this decade I hope. On the water are a ton of Japanese decks that'll be here in a few weeks. In the meantime? NADA! At least I got to listen to TP-001 first. *sigh*

Just heard a thump at the front door and that characteristic " theeeeee-whap" of the big brown truck. So I'll be listening to TP-002 this evening. Sorry Jeff, I don't mean to be insensitive to your plight but, Yahoo!

HEads up Ya'll...TP-003 has been duped. The numbers are being engraved as I type. Just a matter of a few days until the next set ships. : ) It's a killer.

Paul is Mastering the Robert Cray right now as well. And Damn if it don't sound gooood. Dan is working like a madman on cover art and tapedecks. Madman I tell you.
...oh yeah...We will have alignment tapes ready to go out to those waiting in a few days as well... It's a different set of gears to to get those ready, but standby, they are coming....

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

We opened a bottle of wine and threaded up TP-002 tonight. Another home run for the Tape Project. The sound of the guitar and Dave Alvin's voice reached out to us, not in a hyped up "audiophile" way, but in an emotional way, just as live music does. Can't wait for TP-003!
