I have only one client that needs CDs any more, and she is a blind drummer who doesn’t use computers. Nowadays I dropbox the files to a neighbor of hers, and he sneakernets a CD to her. But thaty is only for her approval, the final product is on YuTube.

Welcome to the modern world. I still buy CDs form musicians at gigs just to support them, but they end up in iTunes anyway!
I’d LOVE to hear that Kenton project if it is at all possible!:-)

>>> Suggestions for my current project? Old vendor is probably long gone. And are the 90 min burns likely to be playable on consumer players?
