Boy,.. I'm with you on that one Jay! I just love #7 but the other day I wasn't real sure what album #8 was going to be. I went to the TP home page and when my eyes fell on "Waltz" I got a protracted case of goosebumps. I think if the world ran out of gas before I got it on my machine, I'd have no problem walking the 50 miles from my house to the "Tape Shed" to get my copy.

I was pleasantly pleased to find an unannounced bundle of joy on my doorstep this afternoon from TP.
I have no idea what is inside.
A competancy test perhaps?

Jay,
It's twins with a one week labor in between.
I'm going to be a TP gladdy.

Good deal Xavier. That would be a real bummer to have to head home knowing a tape is just days away. Your visits to San Diego must be like Xmas.

In general, how long should I have to wait to receive a tape? I purchased my subscription on July 6 - haven't seen a tape yet.

Check elswhere on the forum or Tape Project site, but I believe the plan was to fulfill the first  Charter subscriptions  as each album becomes available then go back and take care of others. They can't run all titles simultaneously and it is a time consuming real time duplication process.
I am a selective subscriber - number 111, joined in March and received tapes 001 and 002 so far in early July.

Hi Tom, if you're starting to wonder, contact Romo and he should be able to tell you where you're at. There a number of variables so to really know, it's best to go to the source (it beats the hell out of not knowing or expecting something sooner than is realistic)[email protected]
Anyone wondering about shipping info should contact Michael.
