Black Book 2 Pre-Order Announcement
BLACK BOOK 2nd Edition PRE-ORDER ANNOUNCEMENT
I’m planning on the book being published and available for general purchase worldwide with a provisional release date of December 19. It will be available from Amazon sites worldwide (print and Kindle versions), as well as iBooks (for you fellow iPad readers). The price will be the same as the first book, US$20, which is a bargain considering there are nearly 100 new shows that have been added, as well as expanded sections and loads more info packed in the book, making it nearly twice the size of the first book (pagewise)!
WHAT’S NEW IN BLACK BOOK 2nd EDITION:
> Newly rearranged format and sections, breaking the live history into touring “eras” instead of years to better track their onstage progression alongside their musical evolution in the studio
> Nearly 100 new concerts reviewed and written up, fleshing out their live history even more than the first book from 2009
> Corrections and revisions to many entires from the first book as further research has brought new information to light
> Updated, corrected, and expanded tour date history
> Updated, corrected, and expanded song live performance list
> A collection of scans/photos of Blur concert ticket stubs throughout their history, from 1990 to 2012
> A “thank you” section acknowledging and thanking everyone who kindly helped out with this project (whether sending in recordings or scans of their tickets)
> The FIRST EVER review of B-Roads, the lost Great Escape film from 1995/96, detailed and reviewed for the first time ANYWHERE
If you can’t wait until December to order the book, I’m running a pre-order special that will run from October 15 to November 15, 2012
BLACK BOOKS 1&2
> Both editions of Black Book together for US $30
BLACK BOOK 2
> The new 2012 2nd Edition of Black Book for US $20
Everyone who pre-orders either one of these between October 15 and November 15 will get their copies of the book signed by me, as well as a live compilation I’m putting together (I haven’t decided if it will be on CDR or download yet, I’ll announced that as the release date gets closer).
After November 15, 2012, I will not accept any more pre-orders…sorry, but since this is 100% a one-man operation (ie, I’m doing everything by myself!), I just can’t handle it.
If you have any additional questions about the book, the pre-order, or anything else, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
IF YOU HAVE ANY RECORDINGS OR TICKET SCANS YOU’D LIKE TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE BOOK, PLEASE HAVE THEM IN TO ME NO LATER THAN OCTOBER 31, 2012!!
