    I would like to see a catalog. I have already submitted a card to have one sent snail mail, but I have not received it. I am interested in the Kinks, and other vintage British Rock.

    This is regarding the upcoming release of UB40’s Labour of Love IV, set to be out on September 21, 2010. It would be great to see this album being sold not only in record stores but also places like Whole Foods or Starbucks, to name a couple. Starbucks has UB40 on it’s reggae hour playlist. What better place to advertise and sell a cd??

  3. Hi,
    Do you have an email address I can contact you on? Please reply to chad@tracks.co.uk. We are interested in the forthcoming Paul McCArtney family Way Release.

  4. I purchases “Moscow” by the Keith Emerson Band (2 CD set, #3020670732), and there are 2 second gaps between tracks (the sound is supposed to be continuous between tracks, i.e., “gapless”). Will you be able to correct this error??

  5. Cary E. Mansfield says:

    Hi Robert,
    Yes, we have already taken steps to correct this issue. We already have a new master in place.

  6. My name is Evan Taylor and one of teachers at the University of Colorado Denver is Gary Brown and he has put me in contact with you because I am looking for some research help. I am currently writing a paper about starting an independent record label in today’s music industry and delving into various issues regarding that subject. I would love to ask you some question, either via email, phone, or in person. Please let me know if you could help me at all with this project because I know you have valuable insight.
