I found a place that will print new copies of the CD, so all of you who have sent checks will eventually get your copy. It could take a week or so for the CD’s to be printed, so be patient.
Anyone else wishing one will have to pay $30 to cover the cost of the new pressing.
Thanks for your interest. I also learned something from the CD people — the reason the downloadable version sounds so different (and, inferior, to my mind) is that apparently some kind of audio compression takes place in the translation of technologies (don’t ask me), so the richness of the CD is lost.
Like I said, you CD folks will be hearing it the way I meant it to be heard. I hope you enjoy it as much as I’ve enjoyed rediscovering it myself.
