i have yet to say a definite "yes", however it is likely to happen.

i did take a poll to get a feel for how many people would pay $30 for a CD - over 50 people responded, which is encouraging.

i will be mastering the tapes next week and if they turn out good enough then i will look into either enlisting volunteers to burn the several dozen from DAT, or i will look into a couple hundred run.

it all hinges on my (and pat's) satisfaction with the mastering job.

pat has mentioned that he could unload any i don't sell by pawning them at live gigs.

btw - the live show runs 83 minutes. trim a few seconds of lull between tunes here and there and you have one crammed-full CD.

might as well put the call out - who has good photos from the SF show? did anyone take a picture of the marquee? we'll need something to adorn the sleeve with, yes?

The Auction...
some of the pieces are Going... Going... Gone. i am a little surprised how little the white label albums are going for - especially considering how rare they are. fishcotheque - with funky hand-done artwork. $14? damn. cdeurope.com sells these releases for nearly twice as much!
