PRE-PRODUCTION TRACKLIST (Sept 2011)
First thing is that this Tracklist is liable to change in Engineering during the production period starting from now, with most of it completed during September & October, although some straggler tracks could find themselves running into November or December.
We also reserve the right to completely pull tracks if they don't make it out the other side of Engineering and we're not entirely happy with them.
Track times (and even Track Names) are also likely to change between Pre-production estimates and final master.
SO WHY DID YOU OMIT THIS OR THAT?
We fully realise that not every single piece of Airwolf music, that every fan, who has ever asked, has ever wanted, will be on this release. However, it does encompass what the "majority" of Airwolf fans wanted on the original research polls. There will of course be some episodes that didn't make it upon evaluation for various reasons. That's just the way it is and we know we'll not keep everyone happy and there will no doubt, be some who will storm off in disgust. Such is life folks and we've done our best to accommodate nearly everybody. We have to call the line somewhere.
There will be 30+ tracks on his sequel album overall which is quite a sizeable handful more than were even on the original 'Airwolf Themes' as we wanted to give the best value-for-money possible, whilst giving the widest selection possible.
WHEN WILL IT BE READY?
We envisage that studio engineering will be complete by Christmas 2011. That will finish the paperwork and track lengths required etc.
After that, we'll need a final sign-off from Universal, and to complete our paperwork with the various music agencies we work with. Universal will no doubt be the slow-poke here, judging by past performance (they've always been under-staffed and over-worked). Yawn. zzzzzzzzz.
Once that process is complete we can push the button to final production which will take about 3 weeks.
WHEN ARE YOU TAKING PRE-ORDERS?
Probably when we've pushed the final green light for production and only then. We'd guestimate by the time Universal get their finger out and everything else is sorted it'll be March-April 2012 before that happens. Yup, we're behind our original end-of-2011 estimate, so apologies.
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?
The price has yet to be set, however it is not a mass-market release and it will be a based on UK production costs, that, given 12 years' of inflation [including massively increased postage & Airmail costs -- of which we'll only use the premium Registered service] will probably not be too far away from last time. But we'll see.
Would still advise saving a few extra post-Christmas shekels from now on any way in lieu (if you're interested of course).
