      Congrats on reaching funding goal. Very interested in seeing which 20s to 40s tunes get covered.

      @Glenn: not offering for free. Add-ons are optional buys (backers just need to add the price of the Add-on to their initial pledge.) It's a pretty effective way to drive pledges upwards. For instance I would love to pledge an extra $10 for a download code to one of your back catalogue to help your campaign move to the next level, but there's no incentive for me to do so right now.
      Of course you'd have to factor in KS fees, credit card fees and shipping in determining the price of the add-ons.
      Just a thought coming from backing over 100 projects, and successfully funding 2 myself.

      Hi Jean-Michel - I don't generally like to give previous albums as incentives because I feel like people generally say "hey why back this one, I can just get the last one for free if I back the next one, and so on."

      How about some previous GCO albums as optional add-ons? Might incite some backers to increase their pledge?

      Time for anew update and a new stretch goal?
