Update on the New APX Rarities Collections
Tue., Jul. 31. 2007 12:49am EDT
Last week, we released two collections of old recordings of 40 previously unavailable ApologetiX parodies as online downloads, and we're getting a great response from the fans. Here's what two of them had to say after hearing them:
I just downloaded both volumes of "Rare, Not Well Done." I will say that I understand where the name came from, but I have to also say that a lot of the songs are really amazing! I look forward to hearing more from the past on the live album that's coming soon, and more from the future on "Future Tense" when it comes out!
I just wanted to say thank you so much for offering the Rarities volumes. I was one of your many fans who asked you guys to make the old material available, and I really appreciate that you care about and listen to your fans. When I got the e-mail yesterday morning, I ordered Vol. 1 & 2 and the new live CD.
It's great to hear these songs, the lyrics, and to see how much you've improved over the years.
We know that many of you already own all 13 of our CDs yet are still hungry for more stuff. You know that we've written, performed and even recorded many more parodies besides the ones on our CDs (mostly live recordings). And you've begged us to open the vaults.
Unfortunately, they're not great recordings, and many of them aren't great performances. We don't want them ever to be anybody's first taste of ApologetiX. Nevertheless, we do love the parody lyrics, and we may never get around to rerecording many of these songs. Furthermore, we realize they do have historical value, especially with this being our 15th anniversary.
We've agreed to release them, but only as online downloads; they're not good enough to release on CD. However, because they're mp3 files, that means you can get them right now -- no waiting for the mail. If you want them on CD, you can burn them onto one. And, yes, we have lyric sheets with liner notes that you'll receive with your purchase.
