GREETINGS...

And the day will come! Green for go, oh yeah, the first of the special M&E 25th Anniversary Collections will soon be with you, a little later than billed, but this is the underground, that's the way it rolls. I actually started on this project back in January, and it's probably taken up most of my spare time all year, but I have to say I'm really pleased with the end result, well worth the effort. Of course, it would have been out in the Summer if somebody hadn't decided to break daddy's hand, c'est la vie, we'll let her out of the cellar soon, don't worry. So, what's in store with this magnificent collection? The Lightscribe finished data disc contains 30 albums, including several 25th anniversary specials, all in high quality 320kbps mp3 format (the 'Decadion' releases were only 128kbps, nobody complained but we wanted to make this really special), a further 4 hours of bonus material, 4 books (PDF format) and a bonus CD (the original United World Underground compilation from 2001). The two disc set comes presented in a DVD style clear Amaray case, 33 hours of music in all, and plenty to read, including the 64 page illustrated booklet that accompanies the collection. When it came to the price, I wasn't really sure what to do. If you make something too cheap, people might think it's no good and shy away. But then if I'd priced something like this realistically, it would make it much less affordable, and I really want everyone who would like a copy to be able to have one. So I went with the wisdom of crowds and asked our supporters; "What do you think would be a fair price for a 25 album mp3 collection?" The average of all responses came back at 15.67, but I figured I could do better than that. So I added another five albums and rounded it down to 15, and I'm thinking I'll probably make that a global 'United World Underground' price too, hopefully including P&P, see how the sums add up. I'm nice like that. It may only value my labour at around 5p an hour (whereas our Sammi reckons I'm worth half that again), but when was this ever about the money? Full details are inside, come on in and enjoy the countdown...

All the best,

Mick Magic
