At last, another album is shipping!
« on: January 18, 2013, 05:32:15 pm »
We have had a record year in 2012 at Bottlehead, up 25% from our previous best year ever. That was a feat that required not only a lot of production, sales and shipping but also a pretty time consuming revision and refinement of Bottlehead's business structure. Consequently it has really been tough for Eileen and I to fit in all of the obligations we have committed to, including our commitment to the Tape Project. At long last I have finished engraving, assembling, packaging, printing, etc. - all the stuff that has to get done after the tapes are duped -  the first half of the orders for this album. Eileen is packing and shipping the first batch out today. The rest should follow over the next week. Thanks for your patience, I think you will dig this one.

Woo Hoo!

Just got a Quantum View notice from UPS!
At least it's warmed up a little here so I won't have to wear my heavy overcoat as I sit by the curb!

Tom, we hit a snag on this one. Some of the A-sides had a problem that slipped through our QC net and got shipped out. We stopped shipping until it could get worked out. We are close to a solution and everyone will have their tapes pretty soon.

When the above mentioned A sides are complete we will be shipping again. Our team of scientists is getting the duping electronics dialed in after its move to the new atelier and as soon as it passes Dr. Knobs' QA those A sides will be the first items produced.
