Remastered & reissued under the Aqueduct Music label, I SOLD GOLD is now available for the first time on vinyl! Thanks to everyone's generous support of last year's Kickstarter campaign for the Wild Knights LP, the Aqueduct Vinyl Project lives on. As promised, albeit a touch later than planned, I'm proud to reissue I SOLD GOLD on vinyl just in time for the 10th(ish) anniversary of its release to the world on Barsuk Records back in 2005.
HOW YOU CAN HELP!: By supporting this campaign and pre-ordering I SOLD GOLD, you'll be helping to continue the Aqueduct Vinyl Project. My aim is to deliver all past & future Aqueduct releases on WAX, the highest quality in audio standards, and (in my opinion) the coolest way to add a piece of Aqueduct Art to your music collection. It's really inspiring to open up a fresh box of vinyl, just back from the pressing plant, and to think about how far the product has come. From recording in the studio, to mixing & mastering, artwork conception & design, manufacturing, all the way to the finished product; it is with great pride and the pleasure to self-release this album finally on vinyl. To hold it in my hands and share it with you, is perhaps the greatest reward of all!!!
This reissue was a labor of love and a lot of fun to produce. I remastered the album for vinyl manufacture late last year at RFI (the original mastering house) in Seattle and after diligently recreating the artwork, with a few new additions, I SOLD GOLD was off to the plant in Spring 2016 for production.
The first pressing arrived last week and I cannot express how well the finished product turned out. Hat's off to Pirate's Press for shepherding me through the complicated art process for this release. I truly appreciate all their advice and tremendous experience making kick-ass products.
PRE-ORDER now on Kickstarter and take advantage of exclusive rewards that won't be available after this campaign ends.
In addition to the beautiful shiny new vinyl reissue (available in black or gold), there's a new limited edition T-Shirt available for this campaign, the release of Vol. 2 of Aqueduct rarities, I SOLD GOLD test pressings, art proofs and cool opportunities to see Aqueduct rock I SOLD GOLD live in all it's glory Dec. 10th at the Sunset Tavern in Seattle!

Risks and challenges
The risks are pretty much nil for this campaign as the record is in-hand and out of production. Manufacturing vinyl can be risky business due to high demand, long production times, and everything that can go wrong in between creation & shipment. All that is behind me thanks to the generous support of my previous Kickstarter campaign for Wild Knights & the Aqueduct Vinyl Project.
The biggest challenges to a project like this is cost as vinyl is an expensive beast to manufacture. The aim of the Aqueduct Vinyl Project is to fund the release of all past & future Aqueduct releases. By supporting this pre-order campaign, you'll be helping to ensure the release of these Aqueduct records. All proceeds made as a part of this current campaign will go straight into the production of the next vinyl release.
