The regular Calibrations CDs are finally back in stock at CD Baby!

https://store.cdbaby.../cd/leejackson1

Still $12.99 for a disc, or $9.99 for a digital download!

I had a chance to listen to this a couple of times last night (and also listening to it right now!), and I have to say well done, Lee! I thought the interview was quite interesting and gave a good perspective on why you named the album Calibrations, which makes quite a bit of sense. Beehive is a good opener and sure to be a favourite of many, and I also have to mention Spicewood too. It's just such a pleasant track and so easy to listen to, and I think you achieved what you set out to do. I must have played it for a good half an hour or so, it just worked that much for me. I also did like Pluck You, Part One as it reminded me of some of the moodier stuff from DN3D. Great stuff all around and I wish you the best of success with this album, and I hope that we have more to look forward to from you in the future! :)

Thank you for the terrific review! I'm surprised that people are listening to the interview—I'm a terrible interviewee, IMHO. However, I'm extremely glad you enjoyed Spicewood. That song was a pouring out of emotions, and the fact that you listened to it for so long means a lot to me.

My CD arrived two days ago. Picked it up yesterday at the post office. Luckily, info about the item was provided so I didn't have to go to the customs to open the box for them there. :)

Thanks a lot for this beautiful piece, Lee! It's gonna get a special place in my CD collection!

I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but sales of the CD have outright stopped. Can any of you suggest a web site that might be willing to do a review of the album or another forum that might not have got the word that the CD is out yet?

^ I'm sorry to hear that. My suggestion is
https://www.reverbnation.com/

They will review your music and what not, but as you can imagine, it is tough to break through.

Again, all the best, and as I always say, "The cream will rise to the top!" :)

Time waits for no one.

Advertisement was my biggest problem. After I released my first instrumental on iTunes/Bandcamp/CDBaby, the only people who bought it were my FB friends that I told about it and then nothing. Haven't seen a cent from iTunes or Amazon ever.

Thank you - I'll give that a look later today.

Not even from MP3 sales? That's disappointing. I'm sorry to hear that.

I have another web site set up courtesy of CD Baby where you can preview tracks from the album. If you're interested, go here:

https://leejackson.hearnow.com

I hope this will spark some sales, since people can hear snippets before they buy.

A few days ago I ran across some full versions of the songs on Youtube. That might discourage some from buying because they got it free in fairly decent quality. Put out there by CDbaby according to the desription

Yeah. I got $30 or something via Bandcamp max because they give you the money from sales directly immediately upon payment (minus Bandcamp's cut). Never saw a cent from anywhere else. You really need an advertisement campaign. It really is the driving force behind big sales. Because you're just a grain of sand in a desert of people all releasing material. You have to stand out. I just don't have the time or energy or stamina to do something like that and I never had the money to outsource it. Of course, your name is much more widely known than mine of course, but yeah.

CD Baby redirects the ad revenue to you, though. And anyone else who chooses to upload them to YouTube. It's a feature you enable via CD Baby when you set up your initial release.

I've seen reports of gameplay footage of World Tour triggering CD Baby's monetization. That might add up to something for you, Lee.

I think it is. I'm starting to see micropayments from YouTube and from streaming services. I've also sold two more CDs. Still, I've barely broken the $110 mark (not including the Special Edition, which puts me roughly at break-even).

Calibrations is on Discogs now. Has anyone ever had experience with that?

Thank you for your continued support!

I highly recommend to use spotify as an independent artist.

https://artists.spotify.com

Bandcamp and Reverbnation as well.

The more sites you use the better. I think having a personal branding and a marketing campaign in Facebook and Ad words would improve your sales, I can help with that if you are interested.

It's, again, part of CD Baby distribution.

What's you people's favourite track btw?

I go with Bullet Dam and Bridge Out. The former is a kickass version of Stalker and the latter has a great melody in the second half.

From the new tracks I really enjoy Fish Waltz. Still hope it to appear as a level song, or at least a barmusic type song in Duke. Probably with the Swiss Alps theme.

Bobby Prince was the author, but are there any legal problems with the track?

Never heard of them, so I checked

Audiam is a Digital Reproduction Collection Agency

Yeah, a claim is not a strike. Two different things.

Well, this endeavor sure has my support. I would've added a vote the the opening post, but it said
"Action failed: You have reached your quota of positive votes for the day"

But I can't wait to see where this thing goes.
