New Terry Scott Taylor and Friends Studio Project!
It's been 7 years since I've gone into a studio to record new music.
I've been writing and recording songs in my little bedroom studio for Patreon and I've posted over 170 songs in the past 3 years or so. With your help I'm going to pare down this list and record 15 or so of the best songs with the help of some of my oldest and dearest friends, who also happen to be some of the finest musicians on this here planet. Rob Watson will co-produce with me; Dave Raven will be on drums, Greg Flesch on guitars, my canine pals Derri & Mike will be on board; Paul Averitt on bass and BGVs; and many many more surprises as we get the ball rolling.

Horrendous Disc Vinyl Boxes!
Good news! We are just a matter of days away from having everything in hand to start shipping vinyl. I am already doing my best to get things as ready as I can before the last items arrive.
I noticed that only about half of you that are getting vinyl have added the "box" add on. Again, this was added after the Kickstarter campaign at our own expense.... if you would like to add it to your vinyl set, please add the box here:
In case you're wondering about the cost of adding the box -this helps us cover the expense of printing the boxes as well as any increased shipping cost because it does add a little weight to the overall package. It is totally up to you whether or not you want to add it on - your vinyl will ship without it if you don't. I do strongly encourage everyone to add it on however as it will assist in protecting your vinyl going through the mail, and it will also just be easier to ship in the long run. It'll also look very nice sitting on a shelf!
Books are still shipping... many wil be going out with the vinyl.
Thank you again for your cooperation and patience with this project!

Kickstarter Horrendous Disc Box Sets Have Shipped!
Kickstarter CD Boxes have all shipped. There are a couple of you that I have had to reship recently because the box went missing or ended up coming back to me for some reason, but we should have those taken care of soon. There are also a few of you that have still not replied to your surveys.... I don't know where to ship your box! Please send me an address ASAP if you have not responded to the Kickstarter survey. I will keep attempting to reach out to you with any email addresses I have on file. Your boxes are safe and sitting to the side, but I do want to get them to you as soon as possible.
- Kickstarter T-shirts have shipped. I've shipped these with the CD boxes whenever possible. Those of you that are getting vinyl instead of CD, I have in most cases sent the shirt by itself, unless I'm still waiting on a survey response for your shirt size.
- Horrendous Books are shipping. Due to the cost of shipping these books, I am still working through getting them all shipped out... I was hoping that the vinyl would come in fast enough that I could send the book with the vinyl when anyone is getting both. Thank you for your patience!
- Vinyl is getting closer! We have nearly everything in place... just waiting on one or two final pieces. I should have a good update on this soon.
One last thing that I wanted to let you in on that hasn't been mentioned yet..... because of your generosity and willingness to stick it out through the entire Horrendous Disc Kickstarter, I am happy to announce that, following this project - for the first time ever - Daniel Amos will now fully own Horrendous Disc. You heard it right - we were able to work out an arrangement with Solid Rock for total transfer of all masters and rights for the album to the band. (I will note that Solid Rock maintains the rights to release a song here and there on a compilation if they wish and that's totally fine with us.)
Thank you to all of you!

The Ultimate Horrendous Disc Kickstarter!
The rumors are true...
We are working on shipping the CD Box sets out as we speak. There have been a lot of you moving around since the campaign ended, so we are trying to be extra careful with address updates and making sure we have the latest information. For that reason, thank you for your continued patience as we get all of the addresses verified and CD boxes and T-Shirts shipped.
Thank you once again for making all of this possible!

Horrendous Disc Update!
We've been trying to keep everyone updated on progress without going into the minutia of every detail of production ... but I do want to report something very significant. Pieces of the box sets have already started to arrive from the manufacturer. We still have a ways to go - I'm expecting at least one more shipment in the next few days and others will of course follow. I do hope it gives you some relief to see that things are coming together and we are steadily moving closer to a shipping/release date as each day passes.
The photo below shows just a few of the items that have arrived in the past week or two resting comfortably in my guest room and awaiting their eventual shipment to you. Thank you again for your continued patience and support of such a remarkable project. Everything that has arrived so far looks and sounds beautiful! I do not believe that anyone will be disappointed with the final product! We've really never attempted anything quite like this before.
I am also happy to report that we have managed to secure autographs by all six HD-era DA band members for those of you that wanted signed copies! This in itself was a herculean task!
Lastly - in memory of the late Billy Graham, please follow the link below to hear Uncle Terry performing the Swirling Eddies "Billy Graham," recorded for his Patreon Bedroom Demo series.

Updates from Uncle Terry!
Hello my friends, Uncle Terry here with an update.
I've been doing this Patreon project for a year now and I must admit that before setting it up I was feeling quite trepidatious about my future. The music business has changed so dramatically and for years I'd been making regressively less and less income through my music. I was only able to support my family by doing cartoon and game music, which was much-appreciated, but ultimately unsatisfying as an artist and songwriter. Patreon changed everything for me. In the past year I've recorded 66 songs in my bedroom studio?a fun mixture of brand-new songs and re-imaginings of some older songs, some raw acoustic versions and some full-blown (well, as full-blown as I'm capable of in Garageband!) multi-layered productions. I've been having an incredible time writing what I consider to be some of the best songs I've ever written, and while I do consider myself to be the greatest living guitar player ever in the history of the world (including all possible worlds if the multi-verse does indeed exist), miraculously I'm still managing to increase my guitar playing skills along the way. Seriously though, while I'm deeply thankful that I'm actually making some money again, nevertheless only 300 or so people have been privy to the new stuff. I passionately want you guys to hear this growing body of work, which is the primary reason for this update. I have 5,000 friends on Facebook, tens of thousands of fans of all the musical projects I've been a part of, from DA to the Swirling Eddies and The Lost Dogs, to The Neverhood and beyond.... and yet...only a little more than 300 people are a part of my Patreon community. For as little as $5 a month (the price of a cup of cappuccino in most states) you could be one of the annointed few enjoying 6 exclusive brand-new home demos a month (You'll also have the added benefit of being able to mock and shame your friends and family members on the "outside"). At the end of every month we upload a link to all of the songs for that month (in AIFF and mp3) with hi-res artwork for that EP. So what are you waiting for? Please consider being a part of my exclusive "Inner Circle." In the words of St. Thomas Aquinas "I'd really appreciate it!"
Horrendous Disc Ultra-Deluxe Re-issue
I want to thank all of our Kickstarter supporters for their support and their patience as this project has taken a little longer to complete than our first estimate. (C'mon, really, how can we put out Horrendous Disc WITHOUT a delay? It just wouldn't feel right.) When this project was first conceived we thought we had a couple of dozen bonus tracks to compile and find masters for. As we progressed, more and more tapes began to surface and had to be restored, then transferred digitally, then remixed and remastered. In all we have nearly 100 tracks spread out across the entire set! Plus 100s of unseen photos that needed hi-res scanning and restoration, as well as some new original artwork done especially for this project by our own Jason Townsend. We even got all 6 original members of the group to sign postcards for the supporters who chose the "signed" tiers. A truly epic undertaking, but well worth it! I can't wait for you folks to see this. Special thanks to Tom Gulotta, who's been battling brain cancer and Eric Townsend who's been working tirelessly for the past few years to organize this massive undertaking .
Here's a breakdown:
Vinyl edition- two 12-inch colored vinyl LPs- Horrendous Disc & Other Marvelous Mysteries in gatefold cover (21 songs), one 12-inch colored vinyl LP Ten Biggies From Beyond in single sleeve (10 songs), one 10-inch blue swirl vinyl promo EP (4 songs), one 7-inch picture disc (2 songs) - all in a 12x12 box *
CD edition- two-CDs in gatefold cover Horrendous Disc & Other Marvelous Mysteries (27 tracks), single CD in sleeve- Ten Biggies From Beyond & Other Star Trax From Planet X (19 tracks), single CD in sleeve- Wondrous Cosmic Flashes (22 tracks), single CD in sleeve- Daniel Amos Live in '79 (16 tracks) all in a 6x6 box. *
Print- The Horrendous Book (photos and stories from the Making of Horrendous Disc) *
Coming later: A Bandcamp bonus download compilation (16 more tracks).
* Specific titles in your set may vary depending on your Kickstarter tier.
Finishing touches are being put on all of the artwork and we expect to ship in late March or early April, depending on which tier you're at. Thanks again for all the love and support. You people are the best.
Much love, Uncle Terry

The Ultimate Horrendous Disc Update!
Good afternoon DA fans!
We hope that you all have been enjoying the 2 CDs-worth of material we sent you (as a download) just before Christmas! It is very exciting to us to be able to finally do that - to put something significant in your hands. As you are aware, the majority of that material has not been available before in any form. And of course - there is more to come!
While we continue to wait on backer surveys to come in, I am happy to tell you that the important photo that we were trying to find has been found in the Solid Rock archives. This photo was actually the back cover photo of the album so it wasn't easy to "work around." We tried scans of LPs and even a large proof from the original printing and nothing was working. Everything else looks so crisp and clean and everything we had for the back cover looked blurry and fuzzy in comparison. That is until Solid Rock came through and found the image in their storage.
Pieces of the box set continue to be manufactured and we're finishing up the last few elements - hopefully we will be bringing you a solid ship date very soon. In the meantime, here's a little sneak preview of the Horrendous Book. This is the photo book that some of you added to your Kickstarter tiers. It has turned into a book that not only includes a lot of photos from the archives, but also the official story of the making of the album - complete with behind the scenes photos, session dates and other information. There is more than enough information in this book to satisfy any fan of the band or the album. You will learn about the early, abandoned concept of the album, the idea behind the space costume photos, stories from the studio, the reason for the alternate versions and mixes found on the various versions of the LP (and in the box set), and much, much more!
November 18, 2017
The Ultimate Horrendous Disc is being Manufactured!
We are officially manufacturing the box sets! Due to the number of items we're printing, it will take some time for it all to be completed but I will try to update you as each piece is finished. (Note: We will ship the completed box sets once all of the pieces are finished, not one piece at a time).
As we start moving into the final stretch, I will begin sending out surveys for each tier. Please watch for your survey and get your responses in as soon as you can. At that time, you will be able to update your shipping addresses, email addresses and, if relevant to your tier, provide T-Shirt sizes and other tier-specific information.
Thank you once again for your patience as we tackle such a large project. It is happening only because of you and your support!

We're almost there! A note from Terry...
Hey kids, Uncle Terry here to personally thank those who contributed to the Horrendous Disc Kickstarter campaign. You guys came through with flying colors!
Now I know all of you are just as anxious for the final product to be released as everyone on our end is. Let me assure you that the wait is well worth it! Because our team wants this to be arguably the most amazing package they've ever released, they have meticulously searched the archives for never before seen pics, as well as unreleased recorded material, remixes, band member articles, and other amazing goodies. Approximately a week ago I listened to the entirety of the HD test disc, as well as the first mind bending bonus disc, and I'm not exaggerating when I tell you I was was completely blown away by how amazing it sounds! You've never heard HD in it's full bore depth and clarity until you've heard this beauty. So hang in there. We're just around the corner from tying all the loose ends and getting this stunning package out to you. So thank you for your graciousness and patience, and in the words of St. Thomas Aquinas "We really appreciate it!"

NEW MUSIC from Daniel Amos in 2013!
Let's get Daniel Amos off of their butts and back into the studio in 2012!
How would you like to partner with Daniel Amos to get them back into the studio to make a new album in 2012? Now is your chance!
As we all know, due to a variety of issues, Daniel Amos has not recorded a new album since 2001's "Mr Buechner's Dream." Well, it's way overdue for the band to make a new album and you can be a part of it! After many months of planning, we are launching a Kickstarter Campaign to raise enough money to to pay for studio time and the band's travel expenses to make a BRAND NEW album! An entire album of brand new music from Daniel Amos and it can only happen with your help!
If you are unfamiliar with Kickstarter, this is an all or nothing effort folks. Heres how it works. You pledge a certain amount of money to help DA. Your card is not charged unless the project is fully funded. So, if we get to September 6th and we don't have our goal - nothing happens. You keep your money and DA doesn't make an album. If we hit September 6th and we do reach our goal, your credit card is charged by Amazon and DA begins the process of making a new album. We then keep you updated on the progress and begin filling whatever "rewards" you should receive based on your pledge. If at any time you decide you'd like to pledge more, you are able to do that and your "rewards" will be updated to whatever level you pledge.
This campaign begins NOW and will end on Thursday Sep 6, 7:14pm EDT
We're asking for your help not only with pledges, but to get the word out. There are enough DA fans out there that this should be easy, but if we fall short, it will most likely be because a lot of people didn't hear about this effort. Help us spread the word. Whether its on Facebook, or in email, on message boards or anywhere else - get the word out.
Lets make this happen!
The Lost Dogs "Old Angel" & Glory Road Tour!
We are proud to announce the release of The Lost Dogs Route 66 album, "OLD ANGEL," on May 11th. This is a one of a kind recording,
a story told in each song. Your listening experience will feel like you were along for the ride. It's the next best thing!
"OLD ANGEL" includes 15 brand new songs penned by Terry Taylor, Steve Hindalong, Mike Roe and Derri Daugherty!
"It’s my belief that Old Angel reintroduces listeners to the band the Lost Dogs, gives up one of the best offerings they’ve ever made and positions them as one of the best Americana rockers you’ve likely never heard."
"You don't so much listen to Old Angel as bask in its glow. It is a shimmering musical landscape mixing achingly beautiful melodies with a brilliant palette of musical styles and nuances. The album mixes influences ranging from old time rock'n'roll, folk, country, folk/rock, rockabilly, country/rock and Beach Boys harmonies into a cohesive whole."
"OLD ANGEL" is also available on iTunes
Keep checking online concert calendars
for summer tour dates.
An Intimate Evening With Terry Scott Taylor!
2009 Tour Featuring: Terry Taylor, Steve Hindalong and Andrew Taylor
You are cordially invited to spend a rare and intimate evening of story and song with Terry Scott Taylor.
Terry Scott Taylor is a man who wears many hats. Singer. Cowboy hat. Songwriter. Baseball cap. Father. Fedora. Producer. Prophet. Prankster. Pioneer. As the founder of legendary CCM band Daniel Amos he helped pioneer a new artistically-minded aesthetic in a musically stunted genre. As the merry prankster behind the Swirling Eddies he became a supreme satirist while continuously shedding musical skins. As chief songwriter for the Lost Dogs he brought modern maturity to the old forms and helped make them relevant to new generations. As a composer for video games and cartoons he brought his quirky genius to bear in a field that had been
rendered dull and void by electronic keyboards. As a solo artist he laid bare his personal life?its triumphs and tragedies?and made his story our story as well. Some of his songs are limericks. Some are literature. He's flown under most of the radar for more than 30 years but those in the know rank him among our greatest living treasures.
Out of a deep humility he usually works within the context of a band of musicians in order to take a little of the heat off himself. Not this night. This night, joined occasionally on stage by special guest Steve Hindalong and Terry's son Andrew, and armed only with a guitar and his incredible collection of hats, audiences will discover the real Terry Taylor. Intimacy is the name of the game and everyone is invited to play along. Songs. Stories. Answers. You'll hear them all like never before. Come witness the mind of a visionary, the heart of an artist and the soul of a fellow pilgrim.
Joining Terry on stage for a select number of songs chosen from his extensive repertoire of Daniel Amos, Swirling Eddies, Lost Dogs, and solo recordings, will be special guest Steve Hindalong ( Lost Dogs' member, founding member of The Choir, creator and producer of the 'City on a Hill' series, and co-writer of 'God of Wonders'). The ever illusive Camarillo Eddy, founder of 'The Swirling Eddies, is rumored to appear as well. We are
also thrilled to announce that for the very first time ever, Terry's son Andrew will also join his father on stage.
Terry will not only entertain you with humorous and moving anecdotes and songs, he will offer readings from his forthcoming book of collected non-fiction, lyric recitations and commentary, and perform a variety of familiar songs as well as those rarely, if ever, performed in a live setting. At selected venues the evening will be capped off with an audience participation Q&A.
An Intimate evening with Terry Scott Taylor promises to be a surprising, 'don't miss' one-of-a-kind event.
A note from Terry: "As far as live performances go, I don't believe I've done anything quite like this before. I think the audience, which is really more a gathering of close friends and family, is in for some real surprises including a few firsts. Now, the mysterious Camarillo Eddy says he'll show up, but you never know about that guy. On the other hand, I know the great Steve Hindalong will be there to join me on a number of tunes. I've got to say however that my greatest thrill concerning this tour is that my son Andrew will, for the very first time in my 30 plus years of performing, be joining me on stage. I'm extremely proud of him and can't wait for folks to meet him. The song selection should be surprising as well. It's eclectic, unpredictable and culled from every musical entity I've ever been involved with down through the years. At many of the shows I'm planning to field questions from the audience and, if I know my crowd at all, this should prove quite interesting. I may even get Steve to do his leprechaun dance and also that thing where he flips a coin into the air and catches it behind his back. Now that's a show!
"We all essentially agree that we're living in fairly dark and unpredictable times. I'm prayerfully determined to lighten the audience's load a bit and do so through laughter, some challenges, and more importantly some heart-felt inspiration. (Oh, by the way, I've got some road stories to tell which, in some instances, are truly weird and astounding.)
"Anyway, in the words of Sam the Sham ?Let's not be L7!' Come on out to the show and let's all have a wonderful time together." - Terry Taylor
Please contact us as soon as possible if you are interested in booking a show on this tour or if you're interested in assisting a promoter.

The entire album has been remastered from the original master tapes and includes 20 pages of brand new artwork and photos, interviews, and plenty of bonus material. The Deluxe Reissue, which is being released through a joint effort between Stunt Records and Arena Rock Recording Co. is now available for preorder at www.DanielAmos.com!

DARN FLOOR - BIG BITE (DELUXE EDITION)!
The front page says it all... the reissue you've all been waiting for! DA's way-ahead-of-its-time 1987 release, Darn Floor - Big Bite
, is finally returning to CD in the form of a 2 disc remastered Deluxe Edition with new artwork, liner notes and never-before-heard bonus material. We're very excited about this joint project between Stunt Records and the Arena Rock Recording, co.
Some of the rarities and oddities of years past will be making a return in the near future. Some will be taking on new forms and new looks, some will be expanded and re-invisioned. Keep watching this page, the DA news list and the DA webstore for more information. The first titles to re-appear should be the 1988 EZ listening fan club project from the Swirling Eddies, Swirling Mellow
and The Terry Taylor / Michael Roe collaboration, All Day Sing and Dinner on the Ground
- which will be released in a jewel case for the first time.
WARNING: COUNTERFEIT "Vox Humana" CDS!
Some unscrupulous folks have been cashing in on DA's music by making cheap, knockoff counterfeit CDRs and selling them on Ebay and to a few online stores. The primary title that is currently being ripped off is "Vox Humana." Please be extremely cautious when ordering CDs of "Vox Humana" online - even when ordering from an otherwise decent store. At this time, I do not know of any legitimate seller of large quantities of "Vox Humana" CDs so beware of anyone selling multiple copies (usually for $9 or $10.. sometimes listed as an "import.") These are not real CDs and no money goes to the band. Don't reward this behavior by ordering these cheapo ripoffs. The counterfeiters and the stores buying them should be sent a message that its not ok to rip off your favorite bands.
If you need a copy of Vox Humana, please visit our store page and pick one up from the band.
THE MIDGET RELEASED!
The brand new album from the Swirling Eddies, The Midget, the Speck and the Molecule

you see any potential errors - like your name listed too many times, or not
at all even though you did order. If the mistake is simply with the list,

And now a few words from Terry Taylor on the new album...
"Hindalong told me on the phone the other night that this may be the best
record he's ever participated on. 'Really?' I said with a laugh. I was
waiting for the punch line. It never came. I think he might be right... at
least it's right up there. I got teary-eyed listening to the rough mixes
when I got back home from Nashville - not because it was sad music, (in
fact, a couple of tunes are screamingly funny) but because some great
friends had come together and created a true thing of beauty. I hope you
guys like it. We worked hard to make it happen, but believe me when I tell
you that you're all worth it." - Terry Taylor

"DANIEL AMOS" DELUXE REISSUE (JUBAL'S LAST BAND) Preorders
This title was finally ready to roll not long ago, but something unexpected
happened. A tape was discovered that is the master of some of the early demo
recordings that we'er using on the bonus disc. There was also some songs on
this tape that we didn't have in any form before. So, we had that tape restored
as quickly as we could and began to retool the bonus disc. The discovery of this
tape was very significant. It actually means a MAJOR quality improvement over
almost every song on the bonus disc. It also means incouding a few tracks that
we could nto include before.
The main thing that is left to do on this project is just getting a final
track list approved and getting the bonus disc mastered. We do not expect
either of these things to take very much time. We are all more than aware
of how long everyone has already waited and are trying to keep things moving
as fast as possible. We do however think that you will be very happy with the
new version of the bonus disc. Terry should be hearing the new version of the
bonus disc soon. Once he does, he'll let us know if he's ok with it the way
it is, or if he needs some minor last minute changes. Either way, we should be
very close to finalizing this part of the project and getting it mastered. Our
goal is to have it finished and preorders shipped well before the upcoming
Lost Dogs tour.
Watch the DA website for sample soundclips & interview segment outtakes soon.

This long awaited DVD release is finally being manufactured and is expected
to be in stock by July 1st, 2005. (As a reminder, this is NOT a preorder
title. No one has ordered this yet).

progressions and guitar solos, and more. Special features include DA's
internet-only prerelease single, "Nowhere is Someplace," and a live concert
performance from the 2001 Legend's Tour.
DANIEL AMOS / JUBAL'S LAST BAND
This (also) long awaited release should be in our hands shortly after the
Buechner's DVD. It's been a long, difficult road trying to finish this one
up but we are pleased to announce that work on this reissue is finally
wrapping up. We will announce the release/ship date very soon. If you're
having trouble remembering whether or not you preordered this title - we
will also be posting a list of preorderers on the website.

LARRY "LUCY, I'M IN LOVE"
The brand new release from original DA bassist Marty Dieckmeyer and Citizen
Joe cofounder, Glen Lystne is now available at the DA webstore.
12 tracks of Acoustic Rock with an Americana flavor. Larry's songs deal
with some of the basic facts of life: Love; money; therapy & God.
If you like Tom Petty grooves with a strong back beat, melodic harmonizing
melodies (not Carpenters!!!), simple distorted guitar parts (not hard,
heavy overpowering), well thought out lyrics, keyboard support and a
professionally well produced CD, then buy this Larry CD. Marty and Glen's
mutual love of music found themselves assisting each other on each others
project. The result is this well written and recorded collection of
acoustic rock tunes recorded in their home studios. With help from Dave
Raven, joining in on drums, and Marty's tasteful bass parts, the groove was
set for the melodic vocals of Glen Lystne and the simple crunchy guitar
parts. Glen's love of the B-3 is tastefully interlaced on various tracks.
With help from Bob Salcedo's (Jackson Brown, Sheryl Crow, Wall Flowers) in
the final mixing department, the production is punchy, clean and
professionally done. "It's difficulty these days to want to perform and record music while
being married with kids, keeping a job, having a relationship with God, and
staying in love with one woman. These songs represent that struggle, one
I'm sure many can relate to".
CATSCRATCH UPDATE & PREMIERE!
Like cartoons? Not long ago, we announced that Terry, Rob Watson and Dave
Raven were hard at work on the soundtrack for a Doug TenNapel/Nickelodeon
project called "Catscratch".. Now, you can watch a "Catscratch" preview at
the Nickelodeon website.

Catch the premiere of "Catscratch" Saturday 7/9 @ 8/7c only on Nick!

Daniel Amos/Jubal's Last Band reissue update!
Some "new" potential bonus track material has been discovered.. we're
currently going over those newly discovered tapes to see if theres
anything worth using. The artwork is also being finalized and a few
changes are being made at this moment. Please keep watching this page
and the message board for updates.
we realize that the wait has stretched out a lot longer than
any of us had expected, and we apologize for that. However, I think
the finished project will be well worth the wait. It is our hope that
this will be the first in a series of remastered reissues of out of
Terry included on new Andy's Angels release!
Terry has recorded some vocal tracks for "Come as a Child II," entitled ""Like an orange to a child."

THE SWIRLING EDDIES RETURN!
Immediately following the massive success of their pop crossover hit release
"Sacred Cows," the Swirling Eddies retired to the island retreat they had
purchased with the well-earned fortunes acquired from that ever popular
album. At the time, it seemed like the perfect way for the Eddies to go out
with a bang - O, and what a glorious bang it was. Nevertheless, the Eddies
soon found themselves longing once again for human contact and the love
and adoration that life in the limelight had always brought them.
Sure they had started up friendships with the various pelicans and the many
turtles of the island, but that just wasn't the same. Plus, it seems that
animals just don't appreciate the Eddies music the way the human fans do. For
starters, they didn't always have to tie the human fans to a pole to make
them listen, and the human fans only occasionally tried to pull their heads,
arms and legs inside their hardened outer shells. Additionally, the numerous
double albums and feature films the Eddies created targeting the turtle and
bird population ended up being a major financial disappointment.
Camarillo and the rest of the Swirling Eddies have decided to treat you -
their human fans - to a new full length Swirling Eddies album, with an added
Bonus to those that preorder now at the price of $20 per CD. Those that
preorder the album now will receive a special one of a kind password to a
secret website page which will contain an exclusive downloadable Swirling
Eddies EP, featuring demos, rough mixes and other unique "works in progress"
tracks from the upcoming album, before it is released. (Note: The password
and link will be sent at a later date, when the "works in progress" tracks
Individuals that preorder 500 or more copies will receive a special, gold
plated, chicken size replica of the original Let's Spin! Tour bus - hand painted and
chiseled in marble (or whatever material is available at the time) by
Camarillo himself (while supplies last, and the good Lord willin').
Fun is guaranteed for all!!
