Woo Hoo X 2!

I finally got my TP tapes into a proper shelving unit so there's a spot waiting for it.
The last few months, I've been assaulting my ears processing some live recording so they could really use a break!
I'm waiting at the curb!

I can unequivocally state the ?" Tape Project versions are worth waiting for.

After receiving my complete Series 1 ?" subscription, I chose my 3 favorite titles from the series in ?" format.

There is really nothing to say other than the fact that they are just plain amazing!

It would be great to hear when I might receive my copy of this. I have sent an inquiry, but haven't heard back. How is production going?

Thanks,

Doc: it's going on four months since you announced this tape was shipping and still haven't received mine?

Yes, the process is going very slowly. I think each principle in the company faces the issue that this remains even after several years our second job. As for us at Bottlehead, we are the packaging and shipping end of the TP business. It has been exceptionally busy this year for Bottlehead and we are struggling to juggle our time between the two businesses. We have not forgotten anyone, and we do have tapes in the process of duping, packaging and shipping.  The engraver ran all last week while we were out of town and we have many albums queued up to ship and many more that have just arrived from the studio for packaging.  I think there should be another round of shipments coming up very soon.

Doc, I haven't received a new TP tape in a year...and I subscribed to Series III fully 18 months ago. When should we start to see the logjam in the TP start to clear? I appreciate how busy you are with the Bottlehead business, but I am pretty sure that the loyal TP subscribers should be in the queue as well.

We have been working on getting the rest of TP-021 ready to ship. I spent Thursday assembling several dozen reels and Eileen was in the office Saturday getting them boxed. Those will be going out this week. Meantime we are awaiting the next shipment of boxes from our box manufacturer. They should be arriving soon and when they do we will be able to get more albums packing and shipping.
