Jeez... postcards, CDs, Siddhartha, record players, stylophones... I wonder what other people's works he can profit off of. Next up, Billy's '89 Volvo!

Sales Update:

226 sold of 250 autographed versions

4 sold of 250 un-autographed versions

Can't get enough of this for some sick, twisted reason.

How well did Billy's Aegea sell?

Wasn't that release basically the same kind of ambient noise that this release is?

So I learned about this today.
I was braindead/hopeless enough to get Aegea in different colors, listened to it twice, it went out with the entire collection eventually.

But with this, even my collecting-OCD-damaged brain doesn't get it.
400 bucks for something you will never listen to, not even once. and somehow 226 copies of that sold. that is 126 more than I would have guessed.

Well Aegea was what, 60 bucks or something? Not 400. 4? editons 250 copies each, at least the first two editions sold out iirc, so at least 500 copies. caic!

i remember it was a disaster, but it kept selling out, so they came up with new versions all the time. can't be bothered to look it up. maybe google knows?

SPFC has the answer:

http://www.spfc.org/songs-releases/d...?discog_id=396

500 for $60 - which also included a signed copy on colored vinyl. No cardboard box designed by Strawberry, but still... that's a relative deal.

I've got a copy of that but haven't thrown it on and listened to the whole thing. Should do that.

SPFC doesn't give the answer anymore. The site is shut down since a few days. Hope it's only temporary...

Several days later they were back.

The site works for me. It takes a bit longer to load but it works eventually.
I'm accessing the site from my phone if that makes any difference.

One more sales update for the history books of the internets:

1st Edition - 227 sold (23 remaining - this means one has sold in the last 37 days)

2nd Edition - 6 sold (244 remaining - this means that two have sold in the last 37 days)

So overall, we're still looking at 267 of these units sitting above the toilet in the Zuzu's mens room.

What was the original sales price on the 2nd edition/non autographed pieces? It's priced at $159.95 now - seems cheaper to me than it used to be, but I might be wrong there.

One for sale in the UK for the US equivalent of $38. Shipping will be $20 or less. So if anyone in the US (or otherwise) is interested this is your chance to get one either at or slightly below cost.

I looked this up about two weeks back, no idea if the price was something else prior to that.

Due to many inquiries, ZuZu's has decided to limit the AUTOGRAPHED edition of 'SIDDARTHA' to 250 copies.

Purchase your own beautiful, hand-crafted edition today at a sale price of $159.95

So basically, they're selling half of their stock at half price due to popular demand???
Does that make sense to anyone?

Surely they mean "Due to continuing apathy, we're selling this half price to free up some room in Billy's garage".
