I wanted to tell you about a new project I've been getting organized over the last few weeks in collaboration with Mississippi Records. We've coined the acronym "CSR" -- Community Supported Records -- for our venture, Mississippi CSR, which is a pay-in-advance record subscription club designed for fans of the label who have no easy way of getting the records. Subscribers will be insured copies of limited edition releases that will otherwise be hard to come by -- for example, a Prandit Prannath LP in a tiny edition of 300, and an affordable 5LP box of African guitar music in an even tinier edition of 200, both soon to be released -- and Mississippi will have the capital to start new and exciting projects. If you are interested please have a look at the website here:
Records will start shipping to subscribers soon, so don't delay! If you miss out on that African box I can only hope the regret doesn't keep you awake at night.
