      Backed at the $20 tier, and I still have not received my CD. Is anyone else on the same boat?

    2. Mike Marshall on July 8, 2015

      Follow up: Many thanks go to Rob Max and Haley Brooke Lytle from Sweet Relief Musicians Fund for following up and getting my rewards shipped out to me. I'm very happy to file this one under "better late than never".…

      A year passes with no package received and no reply to several messages left here and on Facebook. For a person who was so severely ripped off, there doesn't seem to be any concern about doing the same to someone who jumped at the chance to help your cause. It's very disappointing,

      I've still not received a digital copy of the album.....a year later ?!

    5. Michael Sage Ryzhikh on May 13, 2014

      This project took so long to deliver its rewards that I moved house before they were shipped. For god knows what reason, Kickstarter doesn't let you change your shipping address after you've filled out the survey, so I messaged the admins of this project to let them know my new address. Never got a reply to that message and never received my rewards, which I paid $150 for. Extremely disappointed with both Kickstarter and whoever was in charge of managing this project.

      I have not received any items that come with the pledge I gave. It has been over 4 months since items were to have been packed and shipped. Will there be anymore updates?

      Still awaiting my CD, shirt and cowbell. Has anyone else in Canada (Ontario) received their shipment yet?

    12. Jamie Dutton on November 26, 2013

      Got my cd yesterday! Thanks for the great music :)

    13. Christopher Bushman on November 25, 2013

      CD came in today. ITS AWESOME!!!! Lester, you are the man!

    14. H Newcomb on November 23, 2013

      CD received in Houston on Sat 11/23. Thank you much!

      I see that some people have received their CDs but I, like Beth Burns, have not. I was really looking forward to it. What do we do now? Julia Nunn

      I seem to have missed out on downloading the files the day they were release and am finally getting down to it now! :) Only thing is that the links seem to go to empty dropbox folders...any idea how I can get my hands on the tracks? The hype is killing me :{D

      Beth Burns on October 18, 2013

      Should we be contacting you if we haven't received our items, since it's been over a month since shipping? Thanks, guys.

    21. Charles N on October 11, 2013

      I got my CD, cowbell, and t-shirt day! Thank you very much, Lester! I hope you are doing well now!

      I got my package the other day, the t-shirt is really nice and comfortable love the design. CD sounds great thanks Lester & Friends!

    23. Jim Carter on October 3, 2013

      @Paul, yes it is reasonable. Three weeks from San Francisco to Los Angeles? Maybe I need to report my shipment as lost and request a replacement.

      Paul Adamsbaum on September 29, 2013

      So, if everything was "packed and en route" on September 12th, is it reasonable to suspect they'd have been delivered by now???

      Well worth the wait! Can't wait to start listening and celebrating!

    27. Jamie Dutton on September 5, 2013

      They sent out surveys for the cd's, which is what I filled out and there is an update from Lester. I'm glad he's feeling well enough to sign stuff and help with the packaging.

    28. Pi Supply on September 5, 2013

      @ Jim - agreed, but thats all part of the game with Kickstarter. Anyway, they just sent out a survey today anyway for some backers (myself included) so hopefully a good sign.

    29. Jim Carter on September 5, 2013

      @Pi, I agree but it is all about communication. We are here because we care about Lester succeeding. It is hard to feel like a part of something if we don't know what is going on. Look at some of the previous posts. If they need 6 more months for some reason, OK, but set our expectations correctly. Right now they are still set on April, 2013
      @Jamie, is this a new survey or did you mean the t-shirt survey?

    30. Jamie Dutton on September 5, 2013

      Filled out my survey for the cd.
      Hope Lester is getting better.

    31. Pi Supply on September 5, 2013

      It is a kickstarter project - if their are NOT delays then I would say the campaign has not been ambitious enough!

      Glad to have supported such a worth project and can't wait to receive my CD regardless of how long it takes.

      Take care one and all

    32. Jim Carter on September 3, 2013

      I have at least gotten some, although inadequate responses from Alexis on his Twitter account, but so he doesn't think I am a lone complainer, everyone should post their questions there ==> @AlexisOhanian

      As every poster continues to strive to be respectful and considerate, the only disrespect is coming from those who requested our support. It is nearly 9 months since the opening of this funding period. Nearly a year! For those of you who are frustrated, I suggest you contact Carol Benovic at She's been responsive to my notes that have been keeping her posted on this project.

    35. Nala Rollo on August 30, 2013

      Also, is there a proper tracklisting for the album somewhere as the files don't seem to have been labelled properly.

    36. Nala Rollo on August 30, 2013

      Hi, any news on the CD shipping dates?

    37. Jim Carter on August 27, 2013

      btw Tracks 2 & 6 are spelled wrong.

      xaronax on August 27, 2013

      I'l staring intently at the "Be respectful and considerate." link under this box as I type this, but I keep coming back to the same thing.

      What's going on with this Kickstarter? Months without updates? Estimated ship dates that came and went 4 months ago? I understand some of the issues with what happened in California and how that could put a hitch in everything, but that happened 2 months after the merch was supposed to ship.

      More updates and communication would be awesome. We understand that this isn't going to be a failed pledge, but some info about what's going on would be awesome.

      Also, a few minor points about the album download; Dropbox is a terrible distribution medium for something that 863 people paid money for. Not having any sort of password or gateway to access is unprofessional and cheapens the commitment of those backers.

      What is the ETA for the signed CD, T-Shirts?

      Jeffrey on August 21, 2013

      @ Jim C, Many thanks for your kind reply. I tried that and still got "Failed to download zip file." However, I tried another route... I just 'left-clicked' on each individual track, then clicked on 'open' (instead of 'save' or 'save as') and the song was opened/played in my Windows Media Player. Then I just went to my WMP File drop menu, and clicked on 'save as' and was then able to save the song on my desktop as a wav file. It's a roundabout process for me, but well worth it. Thanks again for you comment reply.

    42. Jim Carter on August 21, 2013

      @Jeffrey, I just tried it and worked fine. try the "download" in the upper right to download all as a zip file or try it on another computer.

    43. Missing avatar

      Jeffrey on August 20, 2013

      No luck at downloading any of the tracks... keep getting "couldn't be dowloaded" responses on each individual track download attempt(s).

      Missing tracks noted by Ronnie Litchfield are still missing. Still waiting for full album delivery.

      Lester, get well soon.

      Ronnie Litchfield on August 15, 2013

      Thanks for the update (#13), but it appears that Track 05 is missing in mp3 format. The tracks are not yet available in wav format, and only track 04 is available in flac format.

      Hope you're recovering soon from that senseless attack Lester.

    46. Charles N on July 25, 2013

      I just watched it to. I'd heard something about it, but no details. WOW. I hope you're doing well, Lester!

    47. Dr Martha on July 22, 2013

      OMG. I just watched the video of Lester's attack~
      Stand up ~ Get up~
      We all need to get together and get along~
      is the message.

    48. Dr Martha on July 22, 2013

      Keep the faith.

    49. Bob Colladay on July 18, 2013

      I can't believe that woman did that to you, hope you are feeling better and start performing again.
