This 2004 Nashville Music Award Winning Album has created a life of it's own over the years. Vinyl needs to happen.
Basically here's the deal: I need 75 preorders (at $20 ea) to break even. So that's where I'm setting the minimum.
YOU WANT IT? LET'S MAKE IT HAPPEN!
In my overly nostalgic brain, the early 2000's were kinda magical down in Nashville, TN. The internet hadn't yet overhauled the music industry- and a lot of idealism was hanging in the humid southern summer air.
Some friends and I rented an old house on the wrong side of the tracks and recorded "Had A Sword"
WINNER Nashville Scene Music Award "Best Experimental Rock"
"At once strange and touching..." -Columbus ALive
"For those sick of musical derivation and sameness, Thornton's incongruities and light-handedness are a saving grace." -Nasville Scene
"...noir-pop sounds with Ziploc-tight emotional gravitas well beyond their collective years." -Nashville Scene
This recording as enjoyed a life of its own over the years. People are still discovering it.
LET'S PUT IT ON VINYL WHERE IT BELONGS!!!!!
We need 75 preorders to do it. ONLY 75!!!!
That will include enough money to master for vinyl and press 150 weight vinyl.
If the minimum is not reached in 90 days, the project will be cancelled and your cards WILL NOT be charged.
**** The more people order, the cooler the vinyl will get. Around 300 orders I can put it in an attractive full color jacket and increase the vinyl weight to 180 or even 210 Collector's Weight!
But I don't want to make it the minimum too expensive and risk not being able to do it at all.
OK LET'S DO IT!!!!!!
TELL YOUR FRIENDS WHO LOVED THIS RECORDING!!!
