Rusty said he’s going to post another journal entree or a ‘message from the band’ about this, but I’m a little too excited to wait, so here’s the heads up:
The band has been getting a number of messages from fans showing interest in helping fund or contribute money to the new POCO CD project; and we all totally appreciate your generosity! So here’s a win-win way of how you can support the mission.
First, I got the OK from management to put the 3 missing CD’s back up on the web store—I’m referring to RUNNING HORSE, WILDWOOD, and BAREBACK.
If you had purchased a POCO item from the web store in recent months you may have received a bonus unpackaged RH CD. Some people ask, “Why don’t you package them and sell them?” Well, the answer is because we already have about 10,000 copies of the finished product of RH. In addition, we have tons of unpackaged copies without the artwork or any info about the CD. I made some nice postcards that list the songs and artists. So, here’s the deal, it seems that just about everyone who wanted to buy RH probably already has, so they will be on the store for a very low price of only $5.00, at least that can cover the cost. We also have a huge supply in stock of Bareback and pretty many Wildwood Sessions, so they will be marked down to a value price of $10.
*PC will continue to receive 20% of sales on RH BB & WW CD’s.Now for the big news on how you can help
–to all of you who are anxious to hear a new studio recording of POCO’s current lineup. At their meeting; all of the guys including management, have agreed to forfeit their merchandise distribution checks this Christmas to fund the recording expenses. They are going to meet up in Nashville which will require travel and living expenses for Rusty and George, and then there are all the production costs that I don’t know enough about to comment at this time.
SO, that’s how all of you can assist. All of the profits from any merchandise sales on this website or at the upcoming shows will go toward the new recording project! Maybe it’s time for a POCO Christmas list! If you would like to order a special color of a T-shirt, just send a note through firstname.lastname@example.org
The way that works is you would just go through the steps on the web store to purchase a $20.00 T-shirt and in the place where you can write a note to the seller, just tell me what color of shirt you want. Also, remember that you can design a special order sweatshirt or hoodie as well. In the hat department we have 3 colors in the horseshoe and I think 6 colors in the horse to choose from and knit beanies and headbands too! Please feel free to post any suggestions for POCO gear that you’d like to see up on the store.
Well, I hope to get very busy packaging up scores of new orders soon. The sooner we build up the ante, the sooner that new CD will be available to you!
