Hey Guys. Gals. Rabbits and Squirrels.
I’m very happy to announce my official debut. Meet Podington Bear
14 tracks: only $7.99
For those of you who have been tuned in for while, this may represent nothing new. It is after all, simply the first fourteen songs of the Podcast (released in January for free) packaged in a commercial container, where it was once free. Well, what can I say? The bear giveth and the bear taketh away.
But like my music, which some have called gentle, I am pleased to report that this album (and others to follow, month by month) will sell for the gentle price of $7.99. (Apr 6– For somreason iTunes reset the price to $9.99. I’m not sure why.) Also, many of you will note the new podcast episode for Jan 31 entitled “Meet Podington Bear” which contains a satisfying mix of long (2 minute) samples from all these songs you came to know me by in January. I hope this will smooth the transition from gratis to commerce.
May I ask something of you? Would you consider supporting me with kind words if you have enjoyed my music for free via the podcast? (It would be kind of silly for you to purchase this album if you already have all the tracks, though it has been professionally mastered, and touched up in general.) I would happily accept as payment for those free songs a supportive comment on the iTunes Music Store Page where this album resides. Many of you have left such nice comments on the podcast page. Perhaps some of you who have considered doing so, but didn’t for whatever reason, may take this as a fresh opportunity! My little album cover looks kind of lonely right now.
Future albums will have some bonus tracks or remixes thrown in to up the ante.
