      CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

      Hi Dub flash, I have sent the cd's? a number of people have received them? We put the release date back twice as the vinyl manufacturing place had many delays on our order, to the point of where the distribution companies said ' release it now or not at all'.... All cd's went out prior to release date and I'm truly sorry if your hasn't arrived yet.. Ill check it now. Vinyl has finnally arrived today!! So I am beginning all the postage tomorrow. if you have vinyl as well, it hasnt been posted yet as the postage cost is close to £900. To post the cd's to everyone, then the vinyl again, means at least another £400 odd of postage costs. We made sure the digital downloads went to you guys before anyone else so you have the music, but the vinyl delivery has caused massive delays..

      How can it be that the shops in the USA already have the CD in stock since LAST WEEK and me, as a backer from Europe, have not received my copy yet? I remember quite clearly that backers were supposed to get the record BEFORE all regular customers. That's one reason I paid more money than the regulars. I feel a bit cheated, to be honest. :-(

      Loving the digitals! Have the physical CDs shipped to backers yet (26th April)?

    6. Alan Rickayzen on April 2, 2014

      So glad I got in on this in time. Amazing sound -just can't stop playing it. Hope you'll do this again Dan.

      Listening to the horn mixes now. It's better than I even dared to hope. Congratulations!

    8. Daniel Boyle 2-time creator on April 1, 2014

      thanks for the kind words everyone! I cant wait to get you the glorious physical product now!
      Matjaz, we would love to do the live show, but would take some time to organize :( Lees current upsetters line up are learning the songs now for a new studio session for part 2 (more to come on that) so in theory they and the RSL all stars could combine for a live show!

      Just a quick note to say the album sounds incredible in my opinion. Three quarters of the way through listening to the wavs of the album and the dub versions in particular have really blown me away. A glorious return to the Black Ark sound!

    12. Daniel Boyle 2-time creator on March 28, 2014

      Hi Jill, Dont worry! I have it noted and will send out the correct one. There was no facility for me to change the reward title on the email that went out to collect details. Its all in hand and you will get the right one. :)

      Hi Daniel, I got the Response needed! message but the reward offered on it is not the one we agreed by email (the one I wanted was sold out but you suggested at the time that I overpay on the reward value lower and you would sort me out for the reward I wanted). Any suggestions how to rectify this? Thanks.

    14. Daniel Boyle 2-time creator on March 18, 2014

      Hi Manfred , in going to send everything out on the same day. Digital downloads and physical copies. That way everyone will be receiving at roughly the same time!

      Like the track... Dreaming of seagulls and driftwood.

      Hi Jim, for sure. And for everyone, we will send a survey through kickstarter this weekend to collect all addresses, combination pledges and details we need to get everything sent out correctly. Just give me the right address and name and I can send it there.

      Is there a way for me to have my reward sent to someone else? I think this would make a great birthday present.

    22. Daniel Boyle 2-time creator on January 20, 2014

      Hi mark, ping me a message and ill send the info.

    23. Mark "HoverDonkey" Craig on January 19, 2014

      Thanks, Daniel

      So I want to keep my artwork, but want a CD, or maybe a signed CD, or maybe something else - how do I go about adding that, please, as I don't see a clear add-on guide...

    24. Daniel Boyle 2-time creator on January 19, 2014

      Hi mark, the posters are an added extra ! You can increase a pledge and combine two, many have done that!

    25. Mark "HoverDonkey" Craig on January 18, 2014

      I've pledged £35 for the signed print, but don 't seem to have access to the most important thing: the music. Is this correct?

      I like cover design 1. You can't really read it, but it looks more interesting than the digital version.

    27. Daniel Boyle 2-time creator on January 11, 2014

      Hey Shaun, inbox me and Ill send the details.

      DB.

    28. Shaun Pryszlak on January 11, 2014

      I backed at the £10 level and wondered what you got for the CD level pledge now? How many CDs, containing what, etc? And if I could change to that instead?

    29. Daniel Boyle 2-time creator on January 11, 2014

      Thanks for backing dub flash!! Pro mastering is booked with Hilton grove. There done a lot of Perrys work. Vests are standard issue in rolling lion studio! ;)

    30. Dub Flash on January 11, 2014

      So, I backed you up as well now. Maybe we can still make it to 13k and get a pro mastering. :)

      Looking forward to the double LP a lot.

      Only point of criticism: If you make a video pitch, please wear a proper shirt next time! ;)

    31. Daniel Boyle 2-time creator on December 10, 2013

      Nice idea! On it.. just got to work out how! :)

      Great! 10k sounds more than doable in 42 days.
      You might want to put that info in an update and on the main page, though. It's always good to have the stretch goals clearly visible for newcomers. Maybe a checklist right at the top like this:
      6k Funding - Achieved
      8k Double Album - Achieved
      10k Coloured vinyl/special CD box - Next goal

    33. Daniel Boyle 2-time creator on December 10, 2013

      Hi Michael, been busy getting quotes.. its expensive!!! :) if we can get close to 10k, we will make it for 180 gram coloured vinyl! Plus a tasty double cd box!!!

    34. Michael Hartmann

      Any news on the possible color vinyl/special CD packaging stretch goal?

    35. Michael Möbius on December 8, 2013

      Let's make this a sublime one!!!

      Yiiieee-Haaa!!! Here we go! Black Ark Sound gets re-kickstarted!

    39. Daniel Boyle 2-time creator on December 4, 2013

      We are close!!!!! Looks like we will hit the goal, then Into our stretch goal of 8k ! The double album is what it's al about!! All songs, all dubs!!!

    40. John 'Jacko' Daniels on December 4, 2013

      Nearly there, let's hope it reaches the £8,000 so we can get the double album!

    41. bangskij on December 3, 2013

      Just listened to the mixes on Soundcloud, they're fantastic, I have only one request -when you master, please don't use a limiter.

      Well, this is a nice deserted comments section.
      Good luck with the campaign. I'm sure with 48 days to go, funding will be no problem at all.
