Light Into Dark CD
I have one copy, unsigned and mint, played just the once for ripping.

Was thinking of selling on eBay, but I'm not sure what to ask. Any thoughts?

what exactly do you mean with "1st edition"? is it signed and numbered? because i didn't think they ever made more than one "edition" of that cd.

if it isn't numbered, it's not really that special. the sealed cd is available on for $14.99 + shipping. that should give you an idea.

I was under the impression that the CDs were sold out and the site not updated since 2002. I'll contact the guy and find out for sure.

My "first edition" mention came from this text on the site:
Orders are now being taken for the 1st edition release of 1000 CDs on March 17, 2002

Mine is #31 of 100 :)

Oh yeah, maybe only the first 100 were signed? I think I have # 2 and 21. Or 71? hmm.

For anyone who'd be interested in a brand new copy of Light Into Dark on cd: This cd is still available on the website.


Yes, the CD is available and the links work even though the website is woefully out of date. I am very busy with my main job that takes up a lot of time and some consulting work I do on the side, so I've put the record label way on the back burner for some time now. Orders normally take a little while for me to get out, but I do have an order from 2 weeks ago that is late and will be going out either this Friday or next Tuesday for sure. If you do want to order and I get it by Thursday, I'll get it out with the other one. Thanks for your interest in Light Into Dark!

Shipping in the US is currently free. That's actually not generosity, but PayPal screwed up the link and until I get around to fixing everything that's the way it will stay. Canada and overseas still ship for the posted prices.

that's $13,99 over the limit for Sp stuff.

the site has an intriguing look, though

are you in touch with barry w.? he took me and some friends on a "late 80s" SP tour of chicago sometime between the emerson or double door zwan shows.

fun fact: he told me that the LID studio credits are lies; that my dahlia and sun weren't recorded at reel time. he said they lied because the tracks were recorded for free but only if the studio got rights; so they lied and said the tracks were recorded at reel time to they didn't have to pay the studio royalties. don't recall the name of that studio though.

IIRC, around that time he was also engaged in a legal battle with SP's lawyers (virgin?) because of this CD release. they claimed that it was a bootleg (despite being listed in the official discog in TAFH) and that he didn't have the rights to release it. he had the original contract, but everyone in SP signed each other's names, so signatures looked forged. he asked me to tell billy back then, but i never had the opportunity. i never got the follow up, either. hope he's well! barry was an awesome dude. tell him i said hi!
