Amazon, check..iTunes, check.

Four Stories Tall – The Road West now available on iTunes and Amazon.

For all you folk eagerly awaiting the release of “The Road West” on iTunes, your wait is now over. As of today you can purchase the album and all single songs from “The Road West” in pristine Mastered for iTunes lossless format. These files were generated by our esteemed mastering engineer, Maor Appelbaum who painstakingly assembled the delicate 96kHz/24 bit masters of our project one byte at a time under a microscope with a pair of really tiny tweezers. He then painted the binary code of each 24 bit word onto 1,542,973,862 individual grains of rice and shipped them to Apple, where a crew of eye-patch-wearing minions reassembled the code into Apples high resolution lossless m4a file format. It took longer than expected, but the results are worth the wait.

Now, go to the iTunes music store and buy a copy. Then go back and write a raving five star review. Hate iTunes? Then buy it at Amazon. We are an equal opportunity deployer. Then go to fourstoriestallband.com or CD Baby.com and buy a physical CD so you can look at John Wilson’s amazing cover artwork and have a really cool looking train wheel coaster. Better yet, put it in your disc player and listen to it in it’s full epic glory! And while you are listening, write another raving five star review on CD Baby. Hey it’s a 47 minute long album, you’ll also have time to go to Amazon.com and write yet another raving five star review. We’re not kidding! Reviews are gold to us right now and can do a lot to help perpetuate sales for us.

By the way, friends get off your duffs and buy a copy. It will cost you less than lunch or a good pint of craft brew and it will last forever. Then put all YOUR friends in a spinning toe hold until they like us on facebook and buy their own copies of “The Road West”. That’s an order!

Free Downloads with Purchase!

Hurry, this offer ends on my birthday May 27th.  With the purchase of a CD you will get a free compilation of MP3’s.  You may ask. “why would i want MP3’s when i could just rip the CD i purchase?”  The answer my friend is that these MP3’s are not your typical junk you get from the major online music retailers.  These MP3’s were created by Mr. Applebaum (Yes,Faith No More), the guy who mastered our album.  Top Notch!

Here is how you do it: Go to the ‘Store’ Page (click here) and add both the CD and the The Road West – MP3 Compilation to your cart.  You will see a spot in your cart to enter a coupon code, which is aweedram.  Be sure to include your correct email when purchasing ’cause your download link comes with your emailed receipt.

Enjoy!!

peace, – John David

In The Groove

This is not the background music of your lifestyle. It is not intended to be the soundtrack for your aerobics session. It was not optimized for competitive levels or playback through $5.00 earbuds. This album was created with our earliest music experiences in mind. We remember a time when we saved our meager earnings to go to the record store and purchase an album. We had to be very selective because we could only afford to buy one. We pored over the albums in the store and finally selected “the one” that would be our musical nectar for weeks/years to come. We would hurry home, remove the shrink wrap, carefully remove the album from it’s sleeve, place it on the turntable, gently lower the tone arm to the lead in groove, plop down in the sweet spot between the speakers and experience the sonic journey this very special piece of vinyl would take us on. It is our sincere hope that this work will do the same for you.
