The price will stick at GBP£30 + shipping per set. You will be able to pay via your Credit/Debit Card via PayPal, or (for USA customers only) personal checks will also be accepted. However checks will incur a bank handling charge (the bank knows how to dig the arm in for this) and of course we'll have to wait for up to 30 days for your check to clear.
We will NOT be offering digital downloads at this stage, just the old-skool physical Special Limited Edition 2CD sets, which are squarely aimed at the old-skool Airwolf fans who want a physical, touchy-feely thing in their hands to know where their money has gone.
Digital Downloads though will be offered in the future via iTunes and Amazon.
SO WHY DID YOU OMIT THIS OR THAT?
We fully realise that not every single piece of Airwolf music, that every fan, who has ever asked, has ever wanted, will be on this release. However, it does encompass what the "majority" of Airwolf fans wanted on the original research polls. There will of course be some episodes that didn't make it upon evaluation for various reasons. That's just the way it is and we know we'll not keep everyone happy and there will no doubt, be some who will storm off in disgust. Such is life folks and we've done our best to accommodate nearly everybody. We have to call the line somewhere.
There will be 42 tracks on his sequel album overall which is quite a sizeable handful more than were even on the original 'Airwolf Themes' as we wanted to give the best value-for-money possible, whilst giving the widest selection possible.
WHEN WILL IT BE READY?
It is now being manufactured during March 2014 so we'd hope it'll be ready to launch by the end of the month.
WHEN ARE YOU TAKING PRE-ORDERS?
We now decided we won't be as it would take up too much admin time.
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?
As this will NOT be a mass-market release, will require engineering and production costs to be factored in for 42 brand new tracks (and the costs and licensing that massive amount of tracks - for any music album out there - will be huge. Most music albums have much less than this, like 10-11 tracks usually) and it will be a based on UK production costs (not American, European, Chinese or any of the other cheap, mass-produced markets), that, given 14 years' of inflation [including massively increased postage & Airmail costs -- of which we'll only use the premium Registered "Signed-For" service] will probably not be too far away from last time's costs (seriously), thus a lot more expensive than any big studio release.
Anyway, the 2CD will be GBP £30 + registered shipping cost per 2CD set (we've increased to 42 tracks - YEAH, we've added more to Jan's CD1 - now up from 30+ which is horrendously high in music terms) and UK production costs have dictated the final figure.
NO APOLOGIES FOR WANTING TO MAKE SOMETHING OF QUALITY! THUS WILL BE MORE EXPENSIVE!
It's NOT being made to a price, but to whatever it costs to make it properly and to the premium quality we desire for it... and that's the price it will cost you all in the end, and I'm making absolutely no bones, apologies nor qualms about that at this stage. You've been fore-warned at this early stage guys and I'm not apologizing for wanting to make a quality product! But nobody ever complains about quality and quality costs. Simple as that.
